2 bedroom cottage for sale

Rampton Road, Cottenham, Cambridge

Sold STC £275,000

Property Description

Full description

An attractive and fully modernised stylish two bedroom cottage with a long garden and off road parking - a beautiful first home.

The property stands semi detached dating back to 1909 constructed of brick elevations beneath a pitched and tiled roof. The current owners have vastly improved the accommodation with a recently replaced first floor bathroom. A particular feature of the property is the long and pleasant garden which is set into several areas including a courtyard, lawn, decking and pond.

Cottenham surrounded by open countryside, lies about six miles north of Cambridge and ten miles south west of Ely. The Cambridge northern bypass is within four miles which provides access onto the M11 motorway and A14 to Huntingdon. Shopping facilities along the High Street include a chemist, supermarket, post office and grocers. A primary school is situated in Lambs Lane which has recently obtained an outstanding Ofsted report, whilst Cottenham Village College provides secondary education and evening recreational community facilities. Cottenham is one of the villages which benefits most from the Guided Busway which provides a reliable, fast and frequent public transport service - a genuine alternative to driving in to Cambridge on the busy A14. The guided busway is the longest in the world and will link Huntingdon, St Ives and Cambridge. There are two new Park & Ride sites at the neighbouring villages of Longstanton and Oakington.
