Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The property is very pleasingly located, down its own 30m / 100ft private driveway, sheltering it back from the road behind its neighbours.

It was individually built and carefully designed, with the secondary bedrooms in the front wing, and the living space and wonderful main bedroom suite at the rear, facing south and west on to the garden to make best use of light. The design also provides excellent covered outside space off the main living room.

The layout has enormous versatility to accommodate a large or extended family or perhaps those that have regular visitors or work from home.

The main living space is particularly impressive with a high vaulted ceiling, roof lights and multiple openings on to the garden and is separated into sitting and dining areas by a brick chimney. The kitchen has been enhanced by the addition of a breakfast room with a high, glazed, east-facing roof for morning light.

The plot is about one-third of an acre in total with a block-paved driveway in front of the house giving parking and turning space and a lawned rear garden. A part-covered paved terrace runs alongside the rear wing of the house.


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 a regular bus service and the newly completed cycleway is a most useful asset which runs alongside the A10 through the whole village. The Cambridge Biomedical Campus can be reached by bike in about 20 minutes.

It is the right side of town for the science parks at Melbourn, Babraham, Granta Park 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.
