Full description

A bright, extended detached house in lovely, south facing gardens, superbly located at the very end of a cul-de-sac.

Sternes Way is a quiet close of only generous detached houses, built in the 1970s and with a leafy, established feel that makes it unique in the villages immediately to the south of the city. It is a short walk from the village shop and pubs and a pedestrian cut-through at the end of neighbouring Vine Close leads straight into the local Primary School.

The house is right at the very end of the close and has a particularly excellent plot with a wide, deep frontage, lots of parking and a landscaped south facing rear garden.

Inside is light and well-proportioned throughout and has been extended by the current owners to give 175sqm / 1891sqft of accommodation. The ground floor has a hall, cloakroom and study, a generous front-to-rear sitting room opens into a large conservatory and there is a separate dining room with attractive art-deco stained glass panelling separating it from the hall. The kitchen / breakfast room is smartly refitted including integrated appliances and opens on to the garden.

The first floor is enlarged to provide four double bedrooms with a wonderful, luxurious en-suite shower room to the master bedroom and a large main bathroom.

With the exception of the timber conservatory the house is fully UPVC double glazed and has gas fired central heating to radiators.

The front garden is about 14m x 18m / 45ft x 60ft, laying the house well back from the close behind lawn, shrub borders and a splendid ancient sycamore tree. There is a large paved driveway giving parking for numerous cars and leading to a detached double length garage with a remote controlled door.

The lovely rear garden faces south and is about 17m x 18.5m / 55ft x 60ft. Immediately behind the house is a broad paved terrace leading on to neat lawns with shrub borders and a handsome small-leaf lime tree at the end. There is a kitchen garden to one side and a timber shed.
The width of the plot, its maturity and the way the house stands centrally make it genuinely exceptional.

Stapleford is a thriving village about 2 miles south of the City and is especially desirable to those looking for easy access into Cambridge from a traditional and attractive village.

It has a primary school, two pubs, a small supermarket, petrol filling station, hairdresser, beauty salon and barber. Further facilities including a GP surgery and dentist can be found in Great Shelford and secondary schooling is at Sawston (2 miles). The Gog Magog Hills, trust land, golf club and Wandlebury Country Park are at the northern edge of the village.

For the commuter there is easy access to the DNA cycleway, which in turn gives access to the Addenbrooke's site (2.5 miles) as well as the City beyond. Great Shelford railway station is close by and offers services to Cambridge and London Liverpool Street.
