An attractive, bay fronted 1930s home set in a popular cul-de-sac close to the village centre. The property has just undergone a complete programme of renovation and provides beautifully presented, high quality accommodation, together with a garden, garage and off road parking.
The property has been sensitively updated by the current owners, ensuring that the character of the property is preserved, whilst at the same time providing modern conveniences such as a contemporary kitchen and bathroom. The property has also been fully decorated throughout with new flooring laid, and the garden landscaped.
Number 3 is approached over a predominantly hard landscaped garden, which provides parking for two vehicles and this extends into a wide side access leading to the garage; a shrub bed in front of the house provides colour.
The front door is set below a covered porch and this opens to the entrance hall. which is particularly bright, with its striking double height corner window flooding the room with light; from here the staircase leads up to the first floor and there is a useful storage cupboard below.
To the front of the property there is a cosy sitting room with a bay window bringing in lots of light and there is a pretty fireplace with recessed shelving either side of the chimney breast. The principal living space is to the rear of the property where there is an open plan room with kitchen, dining and family areas. The kitchen is fitted with a range of floor and wall mounted cabinets and there is a built in oven and hob with extractor over, a large breakfast bar, and an integrated dishwasher, washing machine, fridge and freezer. The adjacent dining space has plenty of space for a good size table and chairs and there are bi-fold doors providing views over the garden and access out to the patio. A snug area is tucked in beside the dining area and would equally make a good study or play area.
On the first floor the landing is particularly light, with a second window to the side providing natural light over the staircase and there are three bedrooms; two good doubles and a single. There is also a modern family bathroom fitted with a bath with shower over, w.c and hand-basin.
To the rear of the property, the garden is a well maintained and predominantly laid to lawn with a brick built garage and shed. There is a patio adjacent to the house leading around the side of the property to a decked area, and at the far end there is a second patio which catches the last of the afternoon sun.
The property has scope for further expansion subject to obtaining the necessary consents and the garage could be converted and used for a number of other purposes if required.
Sawston is one of the largest villages to the near south of the City, situated about 3 miles from the City boundary and around 4 miles from the Addenbrooke’s campus. It also gives excellent access to the M11 (J10 3 miles).
There are good cycle routes to the mainline railway station at Whittlesford (1.5 miles) and the science parks at Babraham (2 miles) and Abington (3.5 miles).
The village has a fantastic range of local shops including a small supermarket, various restaurants and takeaways, an excellent modern health centre, primary schools and the high achieving Sawston Village College which has a sports centre, gym and swimming pool that are open to the public.
There is very little need to leave the village for day-to-day living.
