About this property

TENURE: Freehold

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.

Cambridge Road is a broad, traditional road that links Great Shelford with Trumpington and the City and gives superb access to Addenbrooke's and also out to the M11. Number 185 stands towards the north end of the road, not far from the City boundary. Great Shelford is just 4 miles south of Cambridge. There is an active village community centre around Woollards Lane where there is a library, dentist, village hall and recreation ground, numerous shops including newsagent, hairdresser, beauty salon, baker, butcher, grocer, marvellous deli and the Health Centre in Ashen Green. The mainline station provides access to Cambridge and London Liverpool Street, and the village is located two miles from Junction 11 of the M11. There is a Church of England Infant and Junior School in the village. The Gog Magog Hills and Golf Club, Wandlebury and the Roman Road are within two miles. Addenbrooke's Hospital is also within easy reach and Stansted Airport is within half an hour's drive (via M11).
