Full descriptionA handsome Victorian village semi with a lovely 23m / 75ft garden, enlarged by a superb vaulted kitchen / dining room at the rear and a loft conversion.
The house is very conveniently positioned, a few hundred yards from the village's main shopping facilities, half a mile from the primary school and about 0.3 miles from the railway station.
The current owners have substantially enlarged the house, adding a fantastic kitchen / dining room to the rear with a high vaulted ceiling, roof lights and extensive glazing looking south on to the garden. In front of here is wide lobby giving access to a utility room and ground floor cloakroom. The two original reception rooms maintain the period character of the house including moulded cornicing and an open fireplace in the sitting room.
On the first floor there is a handsome master bedroom at the front with two large windows and a period fireplace, a bright and spacious bathroom at the rear and bedroom 3 is large enough to accommodate a double. The second floor provides another double bedroom with feature exposed brickwork.
The rear garden is about 23m / 75ft long, faces south and is mature, secluded and beautifully planted. There is a broad timber deck off the kitchen that drops down to the main lawn and a the far end is a modern, double glazed detached garden building. There is a gated side pedestrian access.
The front garden is picket fenced and currently designed for low-maintenance with shrubs and slate chippings. A dropped kerb gives vehicular access where the owner currently parks one car on the Highways owned grass verge. Further parking could be added by opening up the front garden.
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.
