A light, spacious and stylish individual detached house with a south facing garden and double garage, conveniently positioned at the western edge of the city close to the University Primary School.
Lavender House was individually built in 2012 and stands back from Huntingdon Road, close to Girton College. It was carefully designed to provide privacy from both the road and its established neighbours and to maximise light.
The ground floor begins with a fabulous tiled entrance hall with tall windows on to the garden. Off here, is a luxury kitchen / dining room with extensive cabinetry, stone worksurfaces and quality integrated appliances. Bi-folding doors to the east elevation open on to the main garden and into the morning sun. The main sitting room is particularly large and it too has bi-folding doors, opening south on to the garden. There is also a ground floor cloakroom and a ground floor double bedroom with an en-suite shower room.
The first floor has two large double bedrooms, both with en-suites, and a further room, currently used as a study, that could easily be adapted to become a fourth double bedroom.
The house is plenty large enough to accommodate a family and would work equally well for a couple looking for excellent living space and large, rather than numerous, bedrooms.
The main garden is south-facing and pleasingly private with shrub borders and a paved terrace. Secluded behind the garage is a further part-walled, paved terrace. There is a detached double garage with a remote controlled door and a driveway in front.
The house was built to be energy efficient with powder-coated aluminium double glazing and gas fired central heating including underfloor on the ground floor. It is for sale with no onward chain.
The house is at the boundary between the city and Girton and offers a fantastic balance between living within the city limits and enjoying the traditional charm and facilities of Girton village. It is within 2 miles of the west University site and 2.5 miles from the very centre of the city with excellent dedicated cycle routes. There is a newly opened Sainsbury’s supermarket less than a mile away at Eddington and also a small Co-op by Girton College that is open 7 days a week until late. The new Cambridge University Primary School is only half a mile away, about a 10 minute walk.
The middle of Girton village is about a mile away and has an excellent range of pubs and restaurants, shops and other facilities. There is a primary school in the village that feeds into Impington Village College (3 miles) plus a tennis club and golf course. Many of the city’s private schools are on the west side of the city, so are easily accessible.
