A handsome, beautifully renovated 6 bedroom period house of over 3000 sqft / 280sqm. Set in the historic
conservation area of one of the most sought after villages in the area, just 2.5 miles south of the city boundary.
The property is nicely secluded at the corner of Newton Road and Hauxton Road behind mature trees and an historic flint wall and is a short walk to the centre of the village. The local primary school is about 1km / 0.6 miles away and Great Shelfords extensive facilities are less than a mile with the mainline station about 2km / 1.2 miles. Routes into the city from the south are excellent by car or bike.
The original part of the house is probably from the 1800s and has a lovely warmth of character, in particular in the traditional bay-windowed sitting room with open fireplace and the generous reception hall. The current owners have comprehensively renovated and significantly enlarged the house including a wonderful kitchen / dining room at the rear with a large glass lantern over the dining area and a bespoke hand-built kitchen. At the back of the house there is a ground floor shower room and a utility room and to the east side a study, family room and integral garage.
The first floor has a bathroom and five bedrooms, including a splendid master bedroom with a large en-suite and on the second floor is a further bedroom with an en-suite shower room.
The established, lawned gardens are mainly to the side of the house and measure about 27m / 90ft at the deepest point with an average depth of about 12m / 40ft. There is a paved terrace off the dining room with raised flower beds and at the end of the garden a childrens play area. The front of the house is gravelled providing extensive parking and access to the garage.
There is gas fired central heating to radiators by two independent boilers and recently installed bespoke double glazed sash windows (2015).
Little Shelford is one of the most highly sought-after south Cambridge villages and stands about 2 miles / 3.5 km south of the City boundary. The majority of the village is within a Conservation Area which has protected its charm and ensured it has not been swallowed up by major development over the years.
It is a thriving community with a modern village hall, a large recreation ground with a brand new sports pavilion, a charming phone box library, The Navigator pub and Thai restaurant and a Chinese takeaway / fish and chip shop. The OFSTED 'Good' village primary school is just across the border into Great Shelford and there are excellent further facilities in that larger village including a post office, a butcher, a chemist, two supermarkets, hairdressers, GP surgery and dentist.
For the commuter there are good cycle routes into the City and to Addenbrooke's Hospital and the Biomedical Campus, Junction 11 of the M11 is about 2.5 miles / 4 km away and Great Shelford mainline station (Cambridge and London Liverpool Street) is about a mile away. There is a park & ride bus from Trumpington into Cambridge and the Guided Bus to Cambridge station.
