A stylishly refurbished detached house in a generous plot less than 2 miles north of the city centre and close to ‘outstanding’ schooling.
Woodhead Drive is off Milton Road, very close to Cambridge Science Park, Business Park and less than 2 miles from the very centre of the city at Market Square.
The property is one of several built to individual designs in the 1990s, occupying generous plots. It is particularly well set back from the road giving it the enormously rare benefit for the city, of having a detached double garage and a driveway for up to 6 cars.
The owners have fully and carefully updated the house including the spacious kitchen/dining room, which has been comprehensively refitted. There are integrated appliances such as a Miele dishwasher and NEFF oven, induction hob and extractor hood. There are granite worksurfaces in the kitchen including a wide peninsular. The bathroom, en-suite and ground floor cloakroom are similarly well updated and improved.
The triple-aspect ground floor sitting room runs front-to-rear with an ash parquet floor, a handsome fireplace and sliding doors on to the garden. It flows into the dining room with the same ash flooring running through. Off the kitchen is a utility room with granite worksurfaces and butler-style sink. At the front of the house, the study and cloakroom can be found. All four first-floor bedrooms are doubles.
The gardens, including the south-east facing rear, are neatly landscaped with a large natural stone patio running the full width of the house. The orientation means that the whole property presents particularly well and is also pleasingly light throughout.
The house is ideally placed for those looking to live within easy reach of the city centre, but with more elbow-room than is provided by the city’s period houses or the more recently prevalent modern townhouses. It also provides an excellent balance of modern ease-of-ownership with the plot-size usually found with older houses. The house is for sale with no onward chain.
The Milton Road area is very popular for those looking to be within easy reach of the city centre, north-city facilities and major transport links. It has its own excellent local shopping area including a Co-op supermarket, chemist, two local libraries and popular nearby cafes.
Cambridge North train station is less than 1.5 miles away with services into London King’s Cross. The river is about a mile’s walk through old Chesterton with the neighbouring open spaces of Stourbridge and Midsummer Commons.
