An outstanding, luxury Victorian school conversion by a multi-award winning developer. Part of an exclusive over-55s development, superbly positioned right at the absolute heart of the village.
Old School Court was built in 2011-12 by multiple award-winning local developer Hill Residential Ltd and is an exceptional development, specifically built for the over 55s and superbly located just off the village's main street, a few moments' walk from the Church, its shops, bank, GP, delicatessen and other facilities. It is a great community for those looking for a balance of convenience and traditional village feel and offers the real possibility of living day-to-day without the need to regularly drive out of the village.
The quality of the development, ease of ownership and its location make it genuinely unique in the area.
Number 3 is one of the three properties formed within the original school building that stand prominently within the development, looking out to its communal gardens with the historic village beyond.
The accommodation is bright, generous and characterful and is presented in near-perfect, original decorative order throughout. The ground floor has a cloakroom, a superbly fitted kitchen / dining room with composite stone worksurfaces and integrated Siemens appliances and a sitting room that opens onto a private paved terrace with the communal gardens beyond.
The first floor has a bathroom, a bedroom with an en-suite shower room and a further bedroom currently used as a second sitting room. The second floor has the largest bedroom and another en-suite.
The property has been carefully built for ease of ownership and is finished to a very high standard. There is energy efficient central heating with underfloor to the ground floor and radiators elsewhere. The original arched windows have been replaced by sympathetic, bespoke double-glazed units by Crittal Windows.
There is a private, paved terrace belonging to the property and attractively kept communal gardens that are maintained as part of a service charge, currently £211.67 per quarter, that also covers external window cleaning, maintenance of the private courtyard and contributions to a fund for future repairs. This arrangement means the property is perfect as a home for those looking for something easy to manage and close to the amenities, but is equally ideal for those wishing to be able to lock-up-and-leave.
There is a single allocated parking space just outside the kitchen windows plus additional visitor spaces across the courtyard. Vehicular access to the close is by automatic remote-controlled rising bollards.
It is freehold and for sale with no onward chain.
Great Shelford is one of the most sought-after villages south of the City thanks to its easy access to town and Addenbrooke's by road, regular buses, car-free purpose built cycleways and train from its mainline railway station that also goes direct to London Liverpool Street.
The historic village centre has excellent day-to-day facilities including two small supermarkets, a convenience store, a deli, hairdressers, doctors, dentist, dispensing chemist, two pubs, restaurants, parish church and more. There are various community facilities and social clubs. The large recreation ground has a new pavilion, tennis club and sports pitches and annually hosts the excellent Shelford Feast festival.
