A well-maintained and appealingly unspoilt semi-detached three bedroom house convenient for Shelford, Addenbrooke's and the City, with a wonderful 200ft south-west facing garden and superb potential. Offered with no onward chain
The house has been in the same ownership for about forty years and over this time has been carefully maintained with improvements such as gas central heating and UPVC double glazing but, unusually, it has not been extended and it retains much of its traditional character giving it great appeal to someone looking to create their own home to their taste, especially with its fantastic gardens affording it superb potential for extension.
The sitting room has a bay window to the front and a fireplace and has been opened through to the rear dining room, both rooms retain their period doors and picture rails. The fitted kitchen has a door out to the rear garden.
On the first floor are three bedrooms, with the third being of a fair size for this age of house, and a well fitted shower room. The house lays well back from the road behind a grass verge. The front garden is enclosed by hedge with brick pillars either side of the driveway. There is side access for a more narrow car. The splendid rear garden faces south-west, is about 200ft in length and backs on to open fields. It is largely lawned with paved patio, various shrubs, fruit trees at the far end and a variety of garden buildings including a large shed and summerhouse. This type of house is increasingly rare in such unspoilt but comfortable condition.
