Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

Barton is a small, attractive and popular village situated just 3 miles west of Cambridge off the A603 and close to an access onto the M11 motorway. There are a number of shops in the village and Burwash Manor also has a group of some fifteen shops and tea room. Great Close is situated off the High Street close to the Church, Post Office and Pub.

This mid bungalow was built around 1968 and has very
recently been transformed by extension, refurbishment and re-arrangement of the accommodation. The living room has been enlarged by an extension with tiled roof, a vaulted ceiling and double doors to the garden and it incorporates a kitchen area with hand crafted units complete with an Aga. The bathroom has been refitted and the former kitchen is now a versatile room suitable for use as a second bedoom, study or further reception room. There is bamboo flooring throughout, except for the bathroom which has vinyl and the main bedroom which has fitted carpet. The bungalow now has a cosy cottage feel but is also light and airy with large windows. The living room and bedroom are both south facing and have views over adjoining pasture land. The property is also equipped with emergency pull cords so that help can be summoned in an emergency.

The bungalow is part of a sheltered scheme of retirement bungalows with occupation restricted to the over 60s. They were built for South Cambridgeshire District Council and a number of the bungalows, like this one have been sold on a shared ownership basis to provide an opportunity for retired people to buy their own home at an affordable price level. The Council retains a 25% share but no rent is charged for this.
