An established non-estate semi with a 40m / 130ft rear garden, pleasantly set backing on to fields within walking distance of the village college and centre.
The property is one of a short row of houses at the western end of New Road which were built in the 1940s for employees of Spicers paper mill, which was one of the village’s major employers at the time. It occupies a generous plot of about 0.13 acres including a rear garden measuring more than 40m / 130ft in depth and about 9m / 29ft in width with views over fields from the rear.
It has been in the same ownership for some time and has been neatly maintained. The only additions to the original build are front and rear porches but there is wonderful potential to significantly extend the house, subject to planning permission.
The ground floor has an entrance hall, long sitting / dining room and rear-facing kitchen and on the first floor there are three bedrooms and a shower room. The windows are all double glazed and there is gas central heating to radiators.
There is a block paved driveway in front of the house and a tarmac drive passing beside to a detached garage with a remote-controlled electric door. The rear garden has a block-paved terrace, a step up to a further paved terrace, vegetable garden, two sheds, a green house and lawn at the end.
The house is for sale with no onward chain.
Sawston is one of the largest villages to the near south of the City, situated about 3 miles from the City boundary and around 4 miles from the Addenbrooke’s campus. It also gives excellent access to the M11 (J10 3 miles). There are good cycle routes to the mainline railway station at Whittlesford (1.5 miles) and the science parks at Babraham (2 miles) and Abington (3.5 miles).
The village has a fantastic range of local shops including supermarkets, various restaurants and takeaways, an excellent modern health centre, primary schools and the high achieving Sawston Village College, which has a sports centre, gym and swimming pool that are open to the public. There is very little need to leave the village for day-to-day living.
