    About this property

    • Medford is a modern, mid-century property built of rendered brick elevations beneath a tiled roof sitting in lovely gardens which measure about 0.45 acres.

      The property, which would benefit from a program of extension and refurbishment, is being sold with no upward chain is located on one of the most sought-after roads in this ever popular south Cambridgeshire village.

      Medford is approached through a large front garden with an in and out shingle drive leading to a centrally positioned front door. A wide and bright hallway communicates with the principal rooms on the ground floor.

      The kitchen at the rear has solid wood doors and attractive man-made work surfaces. To the left of the hall is a well-proportioned drawing room with views over the front and rear garden. To the right the dining room leads though to a study. A downstairs cloakroom and good sized utility room complete the ground floor accommodation.

      Upstairs the property is currently configured as three bedrooms and the master in particular has exceptional proportions with a large bathroom and equally impressive dressing room. There are two further bedrooms of good proportions and a large family bathroom.

      It should be noted that the high pitch of roof would permit, subject to the necessary consents, an extension into the roof.

      Outside there are two garages with electric doors on either side of the house. The front and rear gardens have a number of mature trees and shrubs and the positon of the house backing onto gardens at the rear ensure that the house benefits from a great deal of privacy.

    This is one of my favourite secret roads in the area. I've always thought that this would be an idyllic place to raise a family. Medford is the perfect opportunity to create something special in a unique location.
