Full description

A substantially enlarged, beautifully presented period house with a wonderful 45m / 150ft south-facing garden, in one of the area's most sought-after villages.

The house is very pleasantly located within the protected Conservation area of the village, amongst some very fine houses. The owners undertook a complete and careful restoration of the house in 2012 including the addition of a two-storey rear extension and it now offers beautifully presented, high quality accommodation, with lots of character and excellent practicality.

A front porch opens into the main sitting room which has a lovely period fireplace and exposed floorboards. Behind here is an excellent open-plan kitchen and family room with French doors on to the garden, quality fitted kitchen cabinetry and a wood burning stove. At the back of the house is a rear lobby leading to a ground floor cloakroom and back door.

The first floor provides three bedrooms, all of a good size, including a particularly fine master bedroom with a bright en-suite bathroom, plus a separate shower room accessed from the landing. Both the largest bedrooms have fitted wardrobes.

As well as the extension, the renovation work included new double-glazed windows throughout, with refurbished sliding sashes to the main rooms, a new central heating system and new kitchen and bathroom fitments.

The rear garden faces south east and is particularly lovely, extending to about 45m / 150ft in length and widening towards the end to over 9m / 30ft. It is mainly lawned with excellent privacy, flower and shrub borders and mature trees. There is a covered storage area for bicycles etc, a timber shed and at the rear it adjoins the village allotments. The front garden which is paved and gravelled for low-maintenance and has gated side pedestrian access to the rear garden.

Little Shelford is one of the most highly sought-after south Cambridge villages and stands about 2 miles / 3.5 km south of the City boundary. The majority of the village is within a Conservation Area which has protected its charm and ensured it has not been swallowed up by major development over the years.

It is a thriving community with a modern village hall, a large recreation ground with a brand new sports pavilion, a charming phone box library, The Navigator pub and Thai restaurant and a Chinese takeaway / fish and chip shop. The OFSTED 'Good' village primary school is just across the border into Great Shelford and there are excellent further facilities in that larger village including a post office, a butcher, a chemist, two supermarkets, hairdressers, GP surgery and dentist.

For the commuter there are good cycle routes into the City and to Addenbrooke's Hospital and the Biomedical Campus, Junction 11 of the M11 is about 2.5 miles / 4 km away and Great Shelford mainline station (Cambridge and London Liverpool Street) is about a mile away. There is a park & ride bus from Trumpington into Cambridge and the Guided Bus to Cambridge station.
