An immaculately presented, modern home, enjoying a tucked away position, with views over school playing fields to the rear. The property is presented in almost new condition having been occupied for less than a year since new, and benefits from the addition of bespoke fitted storage and a professionally landscaped garden.
Royal Way is part of the Abode development built by Countryside Properties and designed by Proctor and Matthews Architects. Its mix of striking architecture, carefully considered design and practical, contemporary living, helped the development and architect to win the Royal Institute of British Architects’, East Building of the Year Award for 2015.
93 is nicely positioned within the development and backs onto school playing fields, which means the garden is afforded a high degree of privacy. There are also lovely views over the playing field which can be appreciated from the first floor bedrooms.
The property is light and spacious and in many ways better than new, having been through snagging and had modern slider wardrobes fitted in two of the bedrooms and bespoke drawers fitted under the staircase; whilst the garden has also been skilfully hard landscaped.
The ground floor has a generous hallway with a window over the staircase providing lots of natural light and there is a large utility cupboard as well as a modern cloakroom off. The sitting/dining room is dual aspect with plenty of room for sitting and dining and a door leading out to the terraced garden. Sliding doors open to the kitchen which is fitted with a range of floor mounted cabinets set below beautiful composite working surfaces, there are contrasting wall mounted cabinets; a built in oven and high quality induction hob, as well as an integrated fridge / freezer and dishwasher.
The first floor landing is light and airy and opens to a spacious bathroom and two double bedrooms, both with fitted wardrobes. The second floor landing has two very large storage cupboards and opens to an excellent master suite with generous fitted wardrobes and a bright en-suite shower room. There is a further double bedroom with a built in cupboard, which the current owners use as a study.
To the front of the property there is a shrub garden and an off road parking space. The rear garden is fully enclosed and very private with a path leading around the side to the front. The garden has been professionally landscaped and has raised beds and a large storage shed.
The property is highly energy efficient, easy to run and has high specification double glazing and gas fired heating system.
Trumpington is a thriving, fast growing part of the city that still manages to retain its village identity and sense of community. It is exceptionally well located for access into the Addenbrooke’s campus, out to the M11 and into the city by car, bus, guided bus, one of a few purpose built cycle routes, or even an enthusiastic walk. The city’s mainline station can be easily reached along the guided busway cycleway without having to mix with car traffic at all.
The area has three primary schools and a brand new state-of-the-art secondary school built in 2016 with excellent sporting facilities. Many of the city’s finest private schools are within easy cycling distance.
There are also various restaurants, pubs, shops, a post office, barber, GP surgery, pharmacy, library and community centre. There is a major Waitrose supermarket and a Sainsbury’s local.
Trumpington Meadows nature reserve links Trumpington through to Byron’s Pool and Grantchester and there is a second country park between Trumpington and the Addenbrooke’s campus. Various bridleways and footpaths lead immediately out into the countryside towards Harston, Haslingfield, Barton and Grantchester.
