An improved and well presented 3 bedroom semi-detached house with off road parking, a lovely mature plot and enjoying a near central city location just off Newmarket Road.
This bright 3 bed semi-detached house has been lived in by the current owners for 15 years and has served as a wonderful family home. There is a well-tended private garden and the property offers superb scope for further extension, subject to the relevant consents.
A spacious entrance hall leads through to a bright living room with southerly aspects and a multi-fuel burning stove. The room is finished with attractive laminate wood flooring, which continues through to a dining room with lovely views over the rear garden. The kitchen has been fitted with an attractive range of base and wall mounted units; integrated appliances include an oven and 4-ring gas hob with extractor over. Completing the ground floor accommodation is an inner hall with access to a cloakroom WC and utility room, which also serves as a dark room, perfect for photography enthusiasts.
Upstairs are 3 good sized bedrooms, all of which include built-in cupboards. There is also a first floor bathroom fitted with a modern white suite, complemented by attractive tiling.
Outside, a wide front driveway provides off road parking for several vehicles. The side entrance leads to the noteworthy rear garden which measures approximately 17m (55ft) x 55m (180ft). There is a raised terrace, well suited to alfresco dining. The remainder is laid to lawn and bordered with a wonderful array of mature bushes, shrubs and trees.
The Abbey area of the city is a very convenient and thriving place to live, with major retail parks, supermarkets and leisure facilities within walking distance on Newmarket Road. It is just a couple of miles from the historic city centre and close to the pleasant riverside open space of Stourbridge Common. The Abbey public swimming pool, gym and leisure centre is just off Whitehill Road with Coldhams Common beyond.
There is primary schooling at The Galfrid School, which feeds into Coleridge Community College, both of which are part of The Cambridge Academic Partnership.
It is equally convenient to get out of town, with a pleasant walk or cycle of about a mile leading to Fen Ditton with its traditional and riverside pubs and Junction 34 of the A14 within 2 miles.
