An extended and well-presented Edwardian cottage with a study and west-facing rear garden. The property overlooks the Hauxton’s delightful village green and is situated just 2 miles south of the city boundary.
This well-presented Edwardian cottage has been very well cared for since it was purchased over 7 years ago. Additions to the property include double glazing, a Worcester-Bosch combi-boiler, Nest Thermostat and a newly painted kitchen.
The accommodation briefly comprises an entrance porch with space for coats and footwear. The sitting room benefits from the morning sun, has a feature fireplace, built-in cupboards and shelving. There is a bright dining room which has a fireplace, understairs storage and stairs leading to the first floor. The kitchen has been fitted with an attractive range of units and is finished with solid oak worktops; integrated appliances include an oven and gas hob. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a study with a skylight and doors to the rear garden.
The front of the property boasts uninterrupted views out across the village green. A side gate leads to the large west-facing rear garden which extends to around 82ft (25m). There is a terrace, well-suited to alfresco dining. The remainder of the garden is laid to lawn and bordered by well-established trees and shrubs including a fruiting apple tree alongside many raspberry, blackberry and tayberry canes.
There is a garden shed. The neighbouring property (No.14) has a pedestrian right of access across the rear, as is common with end terrace Edwardian houses.
Hauxton is a popular, historic South Cambridgeshire Village, located just four miles from the centre of Cambridge and within easy reach of the A10, M11 and the park and ride.
The village has a range of amenities including a recreation ground with modern play equipment, sports pitches, an organic health shop, gym, new community centre, ancient parish church, community swimming pool and a well-regarded primary school that goes on to feed either Melbourn or Sawston Village Colleges, with bus services to both.
There are more comprehensive facilities, as well as a station providing services into London Liverpool Street, in the neighbouring village of Great Shelford. There are good cycle routes to Cambridge, including a newly opened cycleway across to Trumpington Park and Ride and on to the Guided Busway cycle route, plus a regular bus service to Addenbrooke’s Hospital and into the city.
