A lovely, light 3 bedroom south-city townhouse with a wonderful westerly rear outlook across paddocks.
Winchmore Drive is an established cul-de-sac tucked back off Trumpington High Street.
The property is one of a row of 1960s townhouses with large windows that fill them with light. Their most impressive feature is the fabulous rear outlook from the main living space which looks west through large windows across horse paddocks into the setting sun.
The ground floor provides an integral garage, shower room, dining room and kitchen, the first floor, a wonderful triple-aspect living space and the top floor, three bedrooms and the bathroom.
The property would benefit from some general updating and there is good potential to enlarge the ground floor. Neighbours have successfully added rear extensions and converted the garage.
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.
