A completely remodelled detached house of 193 sqm / 2077 sqft including a wonderful vaulted kitchen. Standing in a 0.26 acre plot backing on to a tree nursery along a prime village road.
London Road is a broad street of impressive houses and leads away from the A10 and Harston towards Little Shelford and Newton. It gives excellent access into the city and on to the M11 at junction 11.
The house stands over 80ft / 26m back from the road and has been substantially enlarged and totally remodelled in the last four years to create a bright, stylish, practical family home centred around a particularly impressive vaulted kitchen at the rear of the house that opens through folding doors on to the garden. At the front of the house are two large reception rooms and at the rear a utility room, study and shower room. The first floor has four double bedrooms, a bathroom and en-suite shower room.
The renovation included total rewiring, new gas fired central heating with underfloor downstairs and radiators upstairs, new windows and doors and external render.
There is a secluded front garden with a gravel drive giving lots of parking and a very private 40 m / 130 ft rear garden with a small wooded area at the end that backs on to a private nature reserve and tree nursery.
The house is for sale with no onward chain.
Harston is the first village coming south out of Cambridge on the A10 and has an excellent range of day-to-day facilities, plus exceptionally easy road links both into the City and south towards Royston and London. A new purpose-built, road traffic free cycle route has recently opened that leads over the M11, into Trumpington and on to the City. The newly completed cycleway is a most useful asset and runs alongside the A10 through the whole village.
It is the right side of town for the science parks at Melbourn, Abington and Great Chesterford and Foxton’s mainline railway station to Cambridge (c. 13 minutes) and London Kings Cross (less than 1 hour) is within 2 miles.
Within the parish there is an Ofsted ‘Good’ rated primary school, a restaurant, doctors surgery with dispensary, an excellent local shop with Post Office counter, village hall, hairdresser, petrol filling station and a large recreation ground with a recently improved children’s playground.
