An attractive and very charming 2 bedroom, Edwardian cottage. The property enjoys a superb location overlooking the village green and has a large west-facing rear garden.
This delightful Edwardian house has been incredibly well cared for and has undergone extensive improvements to a high standard by its current owners. It has the benefit of new flooring and carpets throughout, a new damp proof course, as well as various cosmetic additions that make for a bright and modern family home. Most recently, a new fitted kitchen was installed in August 2020. A number of attractive period features are also retained, including rise and fall sash windows and an open fireplace.
The front door opens into a bright sitting room which benefits from the morning sun and attractive views. It has built-in shelving and storage, coupled with a delightful open fireplace. The room is finished with new Karndean flooring which continues through to a separate dining room with views over the rear garden. The kitchen has been fitted with a stylish range of units and includes various integrated appliances. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a utility area with access to a storage room that could be converted into an additional reception room.
Upstairs are two double bedrooms, the master being particularly bright and spacious and again offering attractive views over the village green. The second double bedroom benefits from additional storage space and views across the rear garden. There is a spacious first-floor bathroom with separate bath and shower. The landing provides access to a boarded loft with lighting and power points.
The front of the property is set back behind a low wall and shingled front garden, affording uninterrupted views out across the village green. A side gate leads to the large west-facing rear garden which extends to around 75ft (23m). There is a terrace, well-suited to alfresco dining. The generous lawn is bordered by well-established trees and shrubs, including a selection of mature fruit trees. Concealed at the rear is a large garden shed. The garden has the additional benefits of not being over-looked and attracts sunshine throughout the day. The neighbouring property (No.16) has a pedestrian right of access across the rear, as is common with end terrace houses.

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.
