An extended 4 bedroom bay-fronted semi-detached house, quietly located in a residential road close to the city centre, yet convenient for access to the A14 and M11.
The property provides spacious, well planned accommodation and has a generous 108ft (33m) rear garden.
The accommodation is set over three levels, with many appealing character and original features as well as an extension across the rear creating an excellent, well equipped kitchen/breakfast room and a considerably larger dining room. The original sitting room to the front has an exposed wooden floor and a wood burning stove inset.
The first floor has two double and one single bedrooms and a bathroom and the loft has also been converted to a large double bedroom with an en-suite shower room.
To the front of the property there is a gravelled drive and an open plan front garden. Gated side access leads to the long rear garden, which is beautifully planted with a large variety of shrubs and trees. Immediately behind the house is a private paved terrace and a useful outbuilding with power and light connected.
Thornton Road offers a fantastic balance between living within the city limits and enjoying the traditional charm and facilities of Girton village. It is within 2 miles of the west University site and 2.5 miles from the very centre of the city with excellent dedicated cycle routes. There is a newly opened Sainsbury’s supermarket and also a small Co-op by Girton College that is open 7 days a week until late.
The middle of Girton village is about a mile away and has an excellent range of pubs and restaurants, shops and other facilities. There is a primary school in the village that feeds into Impington Village College (3 miles) plus a tennis club and golf course. Many of the city’s private schools are on the west side of the city, so are easily accessible.
