A handsome 1930s detached house of over 2000sqft and with great potential to enlarge, set in a mature 0.51 acre, south-west facing plot with open countryside front and rear.
London Road is a broad, enormously popular street with most of the large properties that line it, laid well back from the road. It links Harston to Newton and carries much less traffic than the main village High Street.
The house is towards the Newton end of the road, positioned both opposite and backing on to open farmland and just 2.5 miles south of the city boundary.
It provides generous accommodation with a traditional warmth of character. It is extended on the ground floor to give a bright, impressive family kitchen / living space at the rear opening on to the garden. The main sitting room is at the front of the house and has an open fireplace and there are two further reception rooms, currently used as a study and a playroom. The first floor has four bedrooms and a bathroom. The master bedroom provides and en-suite shower room and a balcony overlooking the rear garden.
The house is about 20m / 65ft back from the road with the frontage providing lots of parking. The driveway passes beside and leads to a garage / workshop. The mature, leafy rear garden faces south-west for afternoon and evening sun and is some 80m / 260ft long. It is divided into three areas. A more formal paved terrace and lawn immediately off the house, a grass area in the middle and at the far end an orchard.
The whole plot is about 0.51 acres / 2000 sqm and its size means there is wonderful potential to enlarge the house, potentially by a very large amount, subject to planning.
There are roof mounted solar PV panels that subsidise electricity use and provide a feed-in payment, which is approximately £650 per annum. This runs until 2034.
