A detached 4 bedroom period house in wonderful gardens. Not far from the thriving historic centre of an enormously popular, traditional village just to the south east of the city.
Lilac Cottage stands back from the west side of Station Road, facing the garden into the afternoon sun, about a ten minute walk from the village’s thriving High Street, a similar distance from Fulbourn Fen nature reserve and only two minutes further from the local primary school.
Both the house and its wonderful gardens have been carefully created and enhanced by the current owners during their time at the property and it is every bit the idyllic period cottage, but with a degree of practicality that is often missing in houses of its type.
The ground floor has a well equipped triple-aspect kitchen / breakfast room with a utility room off, a separate dining room and an unusually light main sitting room with a handsome inglenook fireplace. There are both front and rear halls and a ground floor shower room.
On the first floor there are four bedrooms, plus a lovely bright study area and bathroom.
The gardens that surround the house have been planted with great love and care and are a genuine delight. There is a gravel driveway in front and beside the house giving parking for 3-4 cars.
It is for sale in order for the owners to downsize, but loving the setting and village they are only moving next door, to a sympathetically designed new house that is well on its way to completion.
Fulbourn is a thriving, established medium-sized village just 2.5 miles to the east of the city, which makes it very convenient for the Addenbrooke’s campus, Capital Park and ARM and out to the A11and M11.
It has a lovely historic centre and a thriving traditional High Street with a greengrocer, butcher, cafe, local Co-Op supermarket,
public houses, antique shop and take away restaurants. The village also has a picturesque nature reserve and superb local sporting
facilities centred around the Fulbourn Institute Sports and Social Club which is also a popular events venue and restaurant.
For those seeking a traditional village atmosphere, with an excellent balance between convenient access and relative quiet,
Fulbourn is very appealing.
