Full descriptionA handsome, bay fronted, semi detached home retaining lots of original features and set within a generous plot with scope for expansion subject to obtaining the necessary consents.
The property is in almost original condition and whilst this means it needs complete modernisation, it also means that most of the character features remain intact. The property has tiled fireplaces, lovely traditional windows, picture rails and has nicely proportioned reception rooms and bedrooms.
The front door opens to the entrance hall, which has the staircase leading up to the first floor and a built in cupboard and a small storage room located off. The sitting room to the front of the property has a sweeping bay window and a tiled fireplace as well as picture rails and exposed floorboards.
There is a separate dining room with lovely views over the garden and this again has a tiled fireplace and picture rails. The adjacent kitchen is fitted with floor and wall mounted cabinets and has a built in cupboard and a door giving access to the garden.
On the first floor there is a bathroom, separate w.c. and three very generously proportioned bedrooms, with the master having a built in wardrobe, bay window and tiled fireplace, the second bedroom having built in wardrobes and all three having picture rails.
Outside the front garden is laid partially to lawn with hedging and a narrow driveway which gives access to the garage/workshop. The rear garden is about 90ft (27m) long and is laid to lawn with fruit trees and hedging.
Girton offers a fantastic balance between living within the city and enjoying the traditional charm and facilities of Girton village. It is within 2 miles of the west University site and 2.5 miles from the very centre of the city with excellent dedicated cycle routes. There is also a small Co-op supermarket by Girton College that is open 7 days a week until late.
The middle of Girton village is about a mile away and has a good range of pubs and restaurants, shops and other facilities within a thriving village community. There is a primary school in the village that feeds into Impington Village College (3 miles) plus a tennis club and golf course. Many of the city's private schools are on the west side of the city, so are easily accessible.
