An appealing, generously proportioned, end terrace cottage, providing characterful accommodation with a long rear garden and off road parking.
Located at the southern end of the village, the property has been sympathetically updated and now provides beautifully presented accommodation, with many lovely features, not least the recently refitted kitchen and bathroom.
The property is approached over a hard landscaped front garden, which provides parking for several vehicles. To the front there is a small porch with space for storing shoes and coats and this opens to the sitting room which is bright and spacious with a pretty fireplace inset with a log burner and bespoke storage cupboards either side. The owners have also fitted modern shutters to provide privacy. The adjacent kitchen has recently been re-fitted with modern cabinets and there is a built in oven with a hob and extractor over; an integrated dishwasher, fridge and freezer, a breakfast bar, and a utility cupboard which currently houses the washing machine and drier. To the rear of the property there is a dining/family room with views over the garden and double doors which give access out to the patio. On the ground floor there is also a luxurious family bathroom fitted with a bath with shower over, w.c and hand-basin. The bathroom enjoys lots of natural light provided by a roof light.
On the first floor, the landing opens to a modern cloakroom fitted with a w.c and hand-basin and there are two double bedrooms and a smaller single room.
Outside, the rear garden is 115ft (35m) long with a patio adjacent to the house opening to a raised deck, beyond which there is an extensive area of lawn with a utility area at the far end. To the side of the cottage there is a useful undercover area providing additional storage space and a completely private terrace which is directly accessed via the side door.
Historically there was a gate at the far end of the garden which it is believed gave a right of access to the communal well which provided water for the terrace of cottages. This gate has not been used to the knowledge of the owner for at least 9 years.
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 a small supermarket, 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.
