Full descriptionA generous one bedroom top floor apartment with balcony in a leafy development in Great Shelford with superb access to Addenbrooke's and the city.
Abberley Wood is an attractive and highly desirable development built in 2009 on mature land and carefully designed to retain the handsome trees at its centre and edges, this lends it an established and leafy feel that is absent in many modern developments.
It stands off Granhams Road by the start of the DNA cycleway that gives a traffic-free route straight to Addenbrooke's in less than 2 miles and on to the station and city centre via the guided busway cycle route.
The apartment is on the top (second) floor at the edge of the development and is generously sized and well presented throughout. There is a useful large cupboard in the hallway, a bright bathroom, a double bedroom with fitted wardrobe storage and an impressive triple-aspect open plan living space which opens on to a south facing private balcony.
There is gas fired central heating to radiators and double glazing and an allocated parking space (marked C6) plus further visitor spaces.
The mature lawned gardens and other communal areas are well maintained by means of the service charge that is currently £68.16 per month, which also includes water. The ground rent is £16.67 per month.
There is about 119 years of the lease remaining.
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 and more. The primary school is very well regarded and 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.
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.
