A substantial detached home set within a mature estate providing generous spacing of housing and roads adjoining the village recreation and nature walks. The property provides bright, versatile and well planned accommodation with a good sized, south facing garden, garage and off road parking.
The property is spacious and well maintained and is located a stones throw from the village recreation ground, and is just a short walk from the local convenience shop/post office on the main road.
Set back behind a hard landscaped front garden, there is a block paved driveway providing parking for two vehicles and an area of gravel suitable for another two vehicles. A path leads to the front door and extends around the side of the property to the rear.
The entrance hall has the staircase leading up to the first floor and there is a modern cloakroom located off. The sitting room is a very generously proportioned room and is dual aspect with a window to the front and patio doors to the rear, and there is a traditional fireplace. The property has a spacious, formal dining room with patio doors opening to the terrace and double doors leading to the study. The kitchen is located off the dining room and is fitted with a range of floor and wall mounted cabinets, there is an integrated dishwasher and fridge, a built in oven and hob with extractor over, and a built in microwave, which is also a second oven; at the far end, a door gives access to a useful utility room with a second sink, water softener, and a washing machine and drier. The reduced length garage is accessed via the utility room, and this would be ideal for storing bikes, buggies and alike.
On the first floor the landing opens to a family bathroom fitted with a bath with shower over, w.c and hand-basin, and there are four good sized bedrooms. The main bedroom is very sizable and has a full en-suite bathroom with a bath, shower enclosure, w.c and hand-basin. The second and third bedrooms are both good doubles and both have a built in cupboard and the fourth is a generous single.
Outside, there is a south facing garden with a patio adjacent to the house and this opens to an area of lawn, bordered by shrub beds. In the far corner there is a summer house.
Harston is the first village coming south out of Cambridge on the A10 and has an excellent range of day-to-day facilities, plus exceptionally easy road links both into the City and south towards Royston and London.
A new purpose-built, road traffic free cycle route has recently opened that leads over the M11, into Trumpington and on to the City. There is also a regular bus service which is a most useful asset.
