To the far end of the hall there is a generously proportioned sitting room with an open fireplace and lovely views over the rear garden, and there is a glazed door leading out to the terrace

The Farmhouse style kitchen/breakfast room is a good size and is extensively fitted with cupboards and drawers.

A window over the sink provides views of the garden and glazed double doors open to a sunny terrace and the vegetable plot beyond; a utility/boot room is located adjacent to the kitchen.

Outside, hedging provides natural screening from the road, with the front garden laid to lawn interspersed by trees and shrubs. The rear garden is south facing, generously proportioned and laid predominantly to lawn with mature trees and hedging, there is also a sunny terrace adjacent to the house shaded by an established grape vine. The garden backs onto paddocks.

The property is located on the land settlement which lies on the edge of Abington village and is made up of a number of homes and small holdings.

Little Abington and Great Abington are an attractive, traditional pair of villages about 6 miles south east of Cambridge. They have an OFSTED 'Good' primary school that feeds into the OFSTED 'Outstanding' Linton Village College, a post office / shop, a lovely pub restaurant, a sports ground and active cricket club, village hall and hairdresser. For commuters the A11, which links down to the M11, is only a mile away and Cambridge is easily accessed along either the A1307 or A1301. Whittlesford Parkway mainline station (Cambridge and London Liverpool Street) is about 4 miles.

Abington has its own major science park, Granta Park, which can be reached easily on foot or by bike by a footpath off the High Street and neighbouring Babraham's science park is less than 2 miles away with a pleasant cycle and foot route over the A11 starting near the end of Bourn Bridge Road.
