Property description

An outstanding detached house, refurbished to exacting standards in the last few years and set in south-west facing gardens one of this area’s most desirable streets.

The house lays back from Little Shelford High Street, which is less than 2.5 miles / 3.5 km from the southern edge of the city but is quiet and wonderfully unspoilt and is home to some of the area’s most impressive houses. It is all part of the conservation area of the village.

The original house was built in the 1950s and was bought by the current owners in 2013 after a long period in the same ownership without updating. Since then it has been almost doubled in size
and entirely renovated to the very highest standards throughout, to create a comfortable, light, contemporary family home that still retains its traditional warmth of character.

The hallway and the two front reception rooms are pleasingly original with restored teak parquet flooring, a wood burning stove in the sitting room and a large picture window in the dining / family room.

There is a cloakroom under the stairs and at the back of the house a magnificent main living space that faces south-west into the sun and opens on to the rear garden. The solid wood kitchen cabinetry was hand built by Wychwood Cabinet Makers and fitted with granite work surfaces, aeg self-cleaning ovens and induction hob, a Siemens microwave and Miele dishwasher. The room is enormously light with glazed Velfac sliding and folding doors and remote controlled Velux roof windows with rain sensors. There is a Nordpeis wood burning stove in the sitting area and underfloor heating across the whole room.

Off here is a rear hallway leading into the garage and a reading room that opens on to the garden and with a second staircase up to the guest bedroom and cloakroom, which would also work well as a home office.

There is a utility room off the kitchen, with a door to the side and hand-build fittings including
provision for a washing machine and dryer, coat hooks and storage cupboards. The main first floor space has a light, dual-aspect landing and four double bedrooms including a wonderful master suite with a high vaulted ceiling, Juliet balcony, dressing room and en-suite shower room. The generous main bathroom has a bath and separate shower cubicle.

The house stands about 50 ft / 15 m back from the road behind a neatly landscaped lawned and shrubbed garden and a gravel driveway giving parking for a number of cars. There is a single, integral garage with remote controlled door.

The rear garden faces south-west and backs on to a private wooded area that is within the greenbelt. It measures about 25 m x 12.5m / 80 ft x 40ft and is professionally landscaped with lawns, herbaceous borders and a Mediterranean garden. Immediately off the living space is an extensive paved terrace with a mains gas barbeque and provision for a hot tub.

The renovation has been completed with energy efficiency in mind and includes complete rewiring, new gas central heating with radiators to the old house and underfloor heating to the extensions and a mains-pressure water system with solar water heating. There is new double glazing throughout and new insulation.

Little Shelford is one of the most highly sought-after south Cambridge villages and stands about 2 miles / 3.5 km south of the City boundary. The majority of the village is within a Conservation Area which has protected its charm and ensured it has not been swallowed up by major development over the years.

It is a thriving community with a modern village hall, a large recreation ground with a brand new sports pavilion, a charming phone box library, The Navigator pub and Thai restaurant and a Chinese takeaway / fish and chip shop. The ofsted 'Good' village primary school is just across the border into Great Shelford and there are excellent further facilities in that larger village including a post office, a butcher, a chemist, two supermarkets, hairdressers, gp surgery and dentist.

For the commuter there are good cycle routes into the City and to Addenbrooke's Hospital and the Biomedical Campus, Junction 11 of the M11 is about 2.5 miles / 4 km away and Great Shelford mainline station (Cambridge and London Liverpool Street) is about a mile away. There is a park & ride bus from Trumpington into Cambridge and the Guided Bus to Cambridge station.
