A two bedroom first floor apartment, in a handsome building of just 4 similar properties, well located at the village end of Cambridge Road and sold with a share of the freehold and a low service charge.
54 Cambridge Road is a traditionally styled detached two-storey building of just four flats, standing at the corner of The Hectare, towards the Great Shelford end of the road with easy access back into the village, to Addenbrooke's and the city.
The property was built about 10 years ago to a high standard and has been lived in since new by the same owner.
At the front of the house is an open-plan living space with a well-equipped kitchen at one end including a built-in dishwasher, oven, hob and extractor. At the rear there are two bedrooms and a bathroom. There is also a very useful large loft space with a roof window and lots of headroom, accessed by a pull-down ladder.
The feeling of space within the apartment is enhanced by unusually high ceilings and there is an entryphone system, built-in multi-room audio and gas fired central heating to radiators by a combi-boiler.
The building stands well back from the road, with good screening from mature shrubs and trees. At the rear there is a small lawned garden area, two parking spaces for the property and its own, private lockable bicycle shed / store.
Unusually for apartments of this kind it is sold with a 25% share of the Freehold, meaning no ground rent and an attractively low service charge of about £40 per month.
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.
