Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Situated in a quiet cul-de-sac, this delightfully spacious house has been an idyllic family home for its present owners for the past fifteen years. Located in a pretty village on the outskirts of the city centre of Cambridge, it borders meadows and open spaces and provides peace and tranquillity at all times.

A stylish, modern, house which has been creatively extended and enhanced by its present owners. Kitchens and bathrooms have been replaced and a large conservatory added. In addition, the attic space was opened up to create two further bedrooms, both with excellent facilities. In recent times, this space has enabled independent living by a family member, but it is the perfect space for home working. Lots of space for children to invite their friends for 'sleepovers', or to play their music without disturbance to the rest of the household, whilst the study offers a quiet space for homework. The house seems to embrace those times when guests are around; the space and available facilities ensure that entertaining is relaxed and happy and there have been times when up to sixty people have happily and comfortably attended many sociable gatherings.

The conservatory opens onto the garden which is easy to manage and mainly laid to lawn bordered with trees and shrubs. It is a walled garden and, therefore, extremely private and enjoys far reaching views over nearby open countryside.

The excellent schools in the village were a huge attraction to the owners when they came to live here. They are all assessed as being of excellence, but, in addition, there are several independent schools within easy reach. The village has a strong sense of community and facilities such as gym and swimming pool are available at the local village college for use by villagers. Cambridge with its wonderful architecture, restaurants, theatres, galleries and shops is very close, and the main line station is located here. The cathedral city of Ely is very close, as is Newmarket, famous for its horse racing tradition.

An utterly lovely family home from which the owners will take away many memories of children growing into maturity, weddings and other special family occasions.



A substantial six bedroom detached family home which has been greatly improved and enlarged, occupying a pleasant end of cul-de-sac position, adjoining open farmland.
