Property description

Tenure: Freehold

10 Orchard Close is an impressive, detached family house of excellent proportions over two storeys. It sits on a particularly wide plot with a south facing rear garden, which is as well looked after as the house.

It was built in 1991 and has a traditional layout with a large reception hall providing access to the ground floor reception rooms and kitchen. Of note is the equally spacious landing, which along with the hall creates a feeling of space and grandeur.

The ground floor accommodation includes a sitting room with an open fireplace and windows overlooking the garden, dining room and study and a generous kitchen/breakfast room with fitted wall and base units, electric double oven and hob and an integrated dishwasher. The adjoining utility room has plumbing and space for a washing machine and tumble dryer.

The first floor has five bedrooms, four of which are doubles. The guest bedroom has an en-suite shower room whilst the main bedroom is particularly well proportioned, has two pairs of fitted wardrobes and a further en-suite shower room. There is a separate family bathroom.

The house sits back from the road behind a decorative iron fence and sliding gate. This has electrics connected to facilitate the installation of a remote controlled system.

There is a block paved path allowing off road parking for several cars leading to the attached double garage. This was extended when built to accommodate larger cars, a work bench and storage units.

The rear garden is unoverlooked from the rear and has been meticulously maintained. There is a large paved terrace, which has two awnings in place for those warmer days. There are lawns, raised flower beds and a summer house with power connected.

Harston is the first village coming south out of Cambridge on the A10 and has an excellent range of day-to-day facilities, plus exceptionally easy road links both into the city and south towards Royston and London.

A new purpose-built, road traffic free cycle route has recently opened that leads over the M11, into Trumpington and on to the city. There is also a regular bus service, which is a most useful asset.

The village is the right side of town for the science parks at Melbourn, Abington and Great Chesterford and Foxton's mainline railway station to Cambridge (c. 13 minutes) and London Kings Cross (less than 1 hour) is within 2 miles.

Within the parish there is an Ofsted 'Good' rated primary school, a restaurant, doctors' surgery with dispensary, an excellent local shop with Post Office counter, village hall, hairdresser, petrol filling station and a large recreation ground with a recently improved children's playground.
