Full description

An established end-terrace house with room for extension, set in the most wonderful south facing gardens, with a lovely rear outlook over allotments.

The house is in arguably one of the best positions in the area, backing on to Trumpington allotments giving it a fantastic leafy rear outlook that belies its edge-of-city location.

The house has two generous double bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor and on the ground floor a long sitting / dining room with stripped floorboards and a kitchen that opens on to the rear garden.

The rear garden faces south east and measures about 20m x 11m / 65ft x 35ft on average and there is a side garden of about 4m / 12ft width. This gives the house great potential for extension, as many of the neighbours have done.

The gardens are a genuinely exceptional feature of the house. They are beautifully tended, well stocked and enormously private. There is a gravel terrace immediately off the house, extensive flower and shrub beds, neat lawn, a circular koi pond with central timber decking island and at the rear a pedestrian gate leads on to the allotment footpath that joins directly with the guided busway and cycleway. The front garden is equally well kept, having not been given over to parking as most of the neighbours have.

The position, orientation and plot make this an outstanding example of this type of house.

Trumpington is a thriving, fast growing part of the city that still manages to retain its village identity and sense of community. It is exceptionally well located for access into the Addenbrooke's campus, out to the M11 and into the city by car, bus, guided bus, one of a few purpose built cycle routes, or even an enthusiastic walk. The city's mainline station can be easily reached along the guided busway cycleway without having to mix with car traffic at all.

The area has two primary schools and a brand new state-of-the-art secondary school that opened in 2016 also bringing excellent sporting facilities. A number of Private schools are within cycling distance. There are also various restaurants, pubs, shops, a post office, hairdresser, surgery, chemist, Waitrose supermarket and two new country parks.
