Royal Way is part of the Abode development built by Countryside Properties and designed by Proctor and Matthews Architects. Its mix of striking architecture, carefully considered design and practical, contemporary living, helped the development and architect to win the 'Royal Institute of British Architects', East Building of the Year Award for 2015.
79 Royal Way is well positioned towards the edge of the development, with woodlands and tree belt providing a high degree of privacy. A path between the houses leads through to the guided bus route from which you can cycle/walk to the city centre and Cambridge train station.
The front door opens into a generous hallway with floor to ceiling windows on the ground and first floor flooding the house with natural light. A spacious triple aspect living room with a wood burning stove, overlooks the wildflower meadow with a door leading to the garden. The kitchen leads through from the living room to the dining room providing broken plan accommodation and can be separated at both ends by well-designed sliding pocket doors. The kitchen has been fitted with a range of wall and base mounted units, integral dishwasher, fridge/freezer, oven, hob and inset sink with a large window overlooking the garden. The dining room has engineered oak flooring and a glass door leading onto the garden. A utility cupboard and w.c. complete the downstairs accommodation.
The first floor has a fantastically bright landing giving access to a large family bathroom and two double bedrooms with one benefiting from an ensuite, a built-in wardrobe and a corner window overlooking the woodland. The second-floor landing has a bank of large storage cupboards and provides space for a workstation ideally set up as a home office. There are two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom. One of the bedrooms enjoys a tree belt facing gabled window and built-in wardrobe.
Outside, there is off street parking and a path providing pedestrian access to the rear garden. The rear garden is partly laid to lawn with shrub borders, a paved terrace and a large timber store. The current owners have had planning permission granted for a single-story extension and a balcony off bedroom one.
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 three primary schools and a brand new state-of-the-art secondary school built in 2016 with excellent sporting facilities. Many of the city's finest private schools are within easy cycling distance.
There are also various restaurants, pubs, shops, a post office, barber, GP surgery, pharmacy, library and community centre. There is a major Waitrose supermarket and a Sainsbury's local.
Trumpington Meadows nature reserve links Trumpington through to Byron's Pool and Grantchester and there is a second country park between Trumpington and the Addenbrooke's campus. Various bridleways and footpaths lead immediately out into the countryside towards Harston, Haslingfield, Barton and Grantchester.
