47 High Street is an elegant, carefully refurbished Grade II Listed period house, understood to have been built around 1820. It is secluded well back from the road right at the centre of the village, a short walk from its facilities.

The owners have taken great care to sensitively blend its original features with modern fittings and the modern extensions greatly enhance the usability of the house without compromising its character.

To the front the sitting room has a large, full height sash window, wooden flooring, decorative moulded cornicing and an open fireplace with a tiled hearth. The dining room has a rustic tiled floor and feature ceiling timbers.

The kitchen has been comprehensively updated to a very high standard. There is a mix of granite and timber work surfaces, quality fitted appliances and ceramic tiled flooring with underfloor heating.

On the first floor there are three good size bedrooms. Bedroom 1 has exposed wall timbers, floorboards and red brick chimney breast. The character continues in bedroom 3 where there is a lovely Victorian fireplace whilst bedroom 2 has a dual aspect and great views of the garden. The bathroom is modern and stylish.

The property is set back from the road with plenty of parking. Timber double gates open onto the impressive, south-east facing rear garden of around 66ft x 40ft (20m x 12m). There is a large paved terrace with summer house, a feature raised bed with some interesting tropical plants, vegetable garden and it is all enclosed by high level fencing and backing onto a school playing field. There is a garage to the rear of the garden.


Melbourn is popular, larger, historic south Cambridgeshire village about 7 miles south of the City between the A10 and A505.

Facilities in the village are excellent and the community is thriving. There is a broad range of local shops, services and healthcare, The Hub which is a superb community building and coffee shop, primary schools and Melbourn Village College, which is part of the Comberton Academy Trust.
