Property SummaryOffered with no upward chain is this bright, airy and beautifully presented detached property on a corner plot located within a quiet cul-de-sac. The house benefits from gardens to both front and rear as well as a double garage and is within walking distance of amenities including schools, convenience stores, restaurant and a couple of pubs. Both London and Cambridge are fast commutes from mainline stations located nearby at Meldreth or Royston.
The front door opens onto a reception hall with hardwood parquet flooring - a theme repeated in the lounge, reception room and study. Oak panelled and glass panelled doors lead off the hallway to all ground floor rooms while stairs rise to the first floor. The study is equipped with a phone connection, power points for computer equipment and a window overlooking the front of the property. The reception room on the other side of the hall also overlooks the front of the house and is equipped with a wall-mounted radiator beneath three-quarter-length windows, which are also repeated in both the lounge and dining room. There is a separate downstairs WC as well as a storage cupboard and a coat cupboard. The lounge boasts a striking feature fireplace with mahogany mantle framing a marble and brass surround around a living-flame gas fire while the room is fitted with modern wall and ceiling-mounted lighting as well as phone point, TV/Sky points and fittings for surround sound speakers. Solid oak flooring can be found in the dining room which leads through an archway into the modern fitted kitchen with a terracotta diagonally-tiled floor. Wall and base units are fitted above and below solid black granite worktops with striking silver inclusions, with green and pale yellow splashback tiles fitted above all cooking and preparation areas. The design also incorporates a Carron black granite sink with mixer tap and waste disposal unit beneath a window overlooking the rear garden. A Rangemaster range incorporates a five-ring gas hob, gas and electric dual ovens and separate grill below an extractor with toughened glass hood. There is space and plumbing for a dishwasher, washing machine and an upright fridge-freezer. Overhead recessed LED ceiling spotlights light the work tops while an internal door leads into the garage. Stairs to the first floor reach a landing, with oak panelled doors again leading to all bedrooms, bathroom and airing cupboard. All four double bedrooms are equipped with wall-mounted radiators, carpets and in-built wardrobes. The master bedroom also includes an ensuite shower room. The family bathroom is fully-tiled and includes a panel bath with shower attachment, low level WC and pedestal sink as well as a separate shower enclosure.

The brick and timber-clad frontage of the house is separated from the road by a lawn. A concrete drive leads to the double garage complete with inspection pit and with flat roof and separate up-and-over doors, one of which is automatic. A Pod-Point charging point for electric vehicles is attached to the external garage wall. Head-high timber gates on either side of the garden open onto passageways to the rear of the house. The enclosed back garden is laid mostly to lawn with planted beds to one side, a mature tree in one corner and a raised, Indian sandstone-flagged patio and seating area beneath a timber pergola. Boundaries are marked by decorative timber-panel fencing to two sides and a brick wall to the other. Access to the rear garden is also possible via a patio door from the lounge as well as another from the kitchen.
