A link-detached three bedroom house in an excellent position right by the country park with a west-facing roof terrace looking towards the setting sun.
Mardler Close was built in 2017 by Barratt Homes and is part of the Trumpington Meadows area on the south edge of the city. It stands around a 150 acre nature reserve and country park that leads down to the river and wooded walks of Byron’s Pool, giving the area a unique balance of being on the doorstep of both the city and of nature.
The house is particularly nicely located in a more open part of the development facing a small green and with the country park at the end of the close. The first floor roof terraces faces west and has a view out across the park to the horizon and the evening sun.
The ground floor provides a hall, cloakroom and an open plan kitchen / dining living space that opens on to the rear garden. On the first floor is the master bedroom with en-suite shower room and the sitting room which opens on to the terrace. The top floor has two further double bedrooms and the bathroom.
There is an attached garage with double doors at the back that open into the rear garden which is neatly lawned with an enlarged paved terrace and a timber bike store.
Trumpington is a thriving, fast growing part of the city that still manages to retain its village identity and sense of community. It is exceptionally well located for access into the Addenbrooke’s campus, out to the M11 and into the city by car, bus, guided bus, one of a few purpose built cycle routes, or even an enthusiastic walk. The city’s mainline station can be easily reached along the guided busway cycleway without having to mix with car traffic at all.
The area has three primary schools and a brand new state-of-the-art secondary school built in 2016 with excellent sporting facilities. Many of the city’s finest private schools are within easy cycling distance. There are also various restaurants, pubs, shops, a post office, barber, GP surgery, pharmacy, library and community centre. There is a major Waitrose supermarket and a Sainsbury’s local.
Trumpington Meadows nature reserve links Trumpington through to Byron’s Pool and Grantchester and there is a second country park between Trumpington and the Addenbrooke’s campus. Various bridleways and footpaths lead immediately out into the countryside towards Harston, Haslingfield, Barton and Grantchester.
