An impressively large, 5 bedroom detached house with a total of over 2380 sqft / 220 sqm of space, including a detached annexe within its 35 m / 110 ft rear garden. Very well located in a quiet yet central position, a short walk from Histon’s High Street.
Manor Park is an established and pleasingly quiet road with easy access into the village centre and near immediate pedestrian and bike access to the guided bus cycleway giving great commuting access into the city and also out to the countryside that surrounds the village.
The house has been extensively upgraded, enlarged and refurbished by the current owners during their occupation and now provides exceptional accommodation, with superb flexibility to its layout. It is currently arranged with five double bedrooms, two downstairs and three upstairs, including a fantastic master bedroom suite on the first floor. There is a large bathroom on the first floor, plus a shower room on the ground floor.
The triple-aspect open-plan kitchen / dining room is superbly equipped and opens on to the rear terrace and the generous sitting room looks out on to the rear garden. There is also a play room and utility room.
Behind the house is a smart, modern, self-contained annexe with a studio living / sleeping / kitchen space, conservatory sunroom and shower room.
In front of the house, a driveway provides parking and a turning space that also extends to the side. The rear garden begins with a paved terrace between the house and annexe and leads on to the main lawned garden which has a sunken trampoline and timber workshop at the far end. It measures about 35 m / 100 ft long from the back of the house.
Histon is widely acknowledged as being one of the most highly sought-after villages north of the city. The village sits just 3 miles from Cambridge City Centre and is within easy reach of many transport links including the A14/M11 road networks, Cambridge North Railway Station and the Guided Busway with an estimated journey time to the Science Park of approximately 3 minutes.
Histon boasts many local facilities including excellent schooling for all ages from pre-school to sixth form. Good local shopping is available and there is a regular bus service to Cambridge, the Citi 8.
Pedestrians, cyclists and horse riders benefit from a bridleway running all the way from Cambridge Science Park to St. Ives along the route of the Guided Busway. Girton Golf Club is also within a few minutes’ drive.
