A superb detached bungalow built by local builders Dobson & Greening in need of sympathetic improvement with living accommodation of approximately 1747 sqft. It is set in gardens approaching 0.25 acres located within this select development of just four homes with no onward chain.
The property has been owned by the family since the 1970’s and enjoys a unique and favourable location within the village with a delightful mature plot. There has been an additional strip of garden land purchased to the rear of the property to slightly enlarge the original plot shown on the location plan.
The accommodation is well planned throughout. A spacious reception hall with doors leads to the living area and bedroom wings, a cloakroom with a two-piece suite with fitted vanity unit and the kitchen/breakfast room. This is fitted with a range of fitted wall and base level units with ample work surfaces, integrated double oven and electric hob, space for additional appliances and utility area to the front. A covered uPVC double glazed porch, with quarry tiled floor off the kitchen, has doors leading to the garden and double garage.
The large, open plan living/dining room enjoys a dual aspect flooding the room with natural light, sliding patio doors to the rear garden and an open fireplace with York stone surround. A study area can be found at the rear of the property with a window overlooking the side garden.
The bedroom wing of the home is isolated from the living area; ideal for family life. There are four good sized bedrooms with bedrooms two, three and four having fitted wardrobes and bedrooms two and three enjoying a hand basin in the room. The master enjoys a dual aspect, a fitted dressing table and an en-suite bathroom with five-piece suite including low level WC, bidet, pedestal wash hand basin, panelled bath and separate shower cubicle. The family bathroom with three-piece suite completes the accommodation.
The living and bedroom areas have parquet flooring throughout and the wet areas are tiled.
Outside, the plot is superb with lawns surrounding the property together with mature plants, shrubs and trees – including an excellent Bramley apple tree – greenhouse, tap and lighting. The double garage has power and light connected, windows on both sides and an electric up-and-over door. The tarmac drive provides off street parking for several vehicles.
Barton is amongst the most desirable of the south Cambridge villages, thanks to its charming character and countryside, which surrounds it, providing numerous pleasant walks including to Grantchester and Coton Nature Reserve, but also due to its excellent commuter links into Cambridge and London.
There are purpose built cycleways alongside the A603 providing a particularly good commute into Cambridge by bike and a bridleway over to Grantchester, which serves as part of a 4.5 mile cycle commute to Addenbrooke’s Hospital and the Cambridge Biomedical Campus.
The nearby motorway is below the surrounding ground level so has little, if any, noise impact on the village. Access to the M11 is approximately 1 mile away whilst the nearest train stations are Cambridge, Foxton and Great Shelford, which are approximately 6 and 5 miles away, providing twice hourly trains into London and Cambridge. Royston train station also provides an excellent and convenient alternative for travelling to London.
The village has a particularly good range of facilities for its size including a post office and general store, two pubs, garage with shop, a recreation ground, meadow and an Ofsted ‘Good’ Primary School that feeds into Comberton Village College and Sixth Form. It is also home to Burwash Manor Barns, a collection of independent shops, a café and exhibition venue that runs various events throughout the year.
