A handsome and very substantial 1930s, double fronted home, set well back from the road within a lovely leafy plot of around a quarter of an acre, with ample off road parking.
The property has been sympathetically extended by the current owners, doubling the original size, to provide exceptionally spacious accommodation. They have also made improvements to the efficiency of the property which enjoys a very healthy B rated EPC. Photovoltaic panels were added a few years ago and these currently bring in an income of about £900 per annum on a feed in tariff (FIT) scheme.
2 Main Street is approached over a winding gravelled driveway, which leads to the house. The entrance hall is welcoming with a window providing natural light and there is a useful built in cupboard and a large storage area under the staircase. The sitting room is in the newer part of the building and is very generously proportioned, the room is dual aspect with a window to the front and French doors leading to the garden to the rear, and there is a modern fitted dual fuel stove. The dining room to the front has a pretty cast iron fireplace, picture rails and lovely views over the front garden. To the rear of the property there is a modern recently refitted kitchen/breakfast room fitted with a range of high-quality cabinets set below quartz surfaces. There is a semi integrated dishwasher, integrated fridge, built in oven and microwave, induction hob and Quooker hot tap providing instant boiling water. The kitchen enjoys lovely views over the garden and opens to the utility room which has space for further appliances and plumbing for a washing machine. On the ground floor there is also a newly fitted shower room, with a large shower enclosure, w.c. and handbasin. Both the kitchen and shower room have underfloor heating.
On the first floor there is a generous family bathroom fitted with a w.c., handbasin and bath with shower over and there are four very generous bedrooms, three of which are very good doubles and the fourth a slightly smaller room. The master bedroom has two windows to the front, a pretty fireplace and a built in cupboard, the second and third bedroom both have two windows and each has a built in double wardrobe, and the fourth has slider wardrobes and a fireplace.
To the rear of the property there is a very sizable 130ft (40m) long garden. A patio adjacent to the house provides an ideal spot for dining and this opens to a large expanse of lawn with mature shrub borders and a number of fruit trees including apple, pear, greengage and a walnut. The garden enjoys a high degree of privacy and has two useful storage sheds.
Hardwick is a very popular village, about 4 miles west of the city boundary with excellent cycle routes in alongside Madingley Road. The A428 that runs north of the village gives quick access to the major road network.
Within the village is an Ofsted ‘Good’ primary school which feeds into Comberton Village College, a well stocked general shop and a historic pub, The Blue Lion.
The village is surrounded by open countryside with various footpaths and bridleways over fields to the neighbouring villages. It offers a fine balance between convenient access the city and a sense of being part of a small village community.
