A detached house in a lovely end-of-cul-de-sac position backing on to fields in an enormously popular village less than 2 miles south-west of the city boundary.
Roman Hill is a 1960s-built cul-de-sac at the eastern edge of the village and the house stands at the end of the close in an excellent plot and with lovely views from its rear windows across the fields towards Grantchester and Haslingfield.
It has been in the same ownership since new and provides appealingly light, spacious accommodation including four bedrooms upstairs and four separate reception areas on the ground floor plus a kitchen / breakfast room, cloakroom and utility room.
It is near central to its 0.15 acre plot with lots of parking, an attached single garage and neat, lawned gardens.
It is for sale with no onward chain.
Barton is amongst the most desirable of the south Cambridge villages, thanks to its charming character and countryside, which surrounds it, providing numerous pleasant walks including to Grantchester and Coton Nature Reserve, but also due to its excellent commuter links into Cambridge and London.
There are purpose built cycleways alongside the A603 providing a particularly good commute into Cambridge by bike and a bridleway over to Grantchester, which serves as part of a 4.5 mile cycle commute to Addenbrooke’s Hospital and the Cambridge Biomedical Campus.
The nearby motorway is below the surrounding ground level so has little, if any, noise impact on the village. Access to the M11 is approximately 1 mile away whilst the nearest train stations are Cambridge, Foxton and Great Shelford, which are approximately 6 and 5 miles away, providing twice hourly trains into London and Cambridge. Royston train station also provides an excellent and convenient alternative for travelling to London.
The village has a particularly good range of facilities for its size including a post office and general store, two pubs, garage with shop, a recreation ground, meadow and an Ofsted ‘Good’ Primary School that feeds into Comberton Village College and Sixth Form. It is also home to Burwash Manor Barns, a collection of independent shops, a café and exhibition venue that runs various events throughout the year..
