About this property

  • 2A Long Road was built 2010 to a high specification with bonded brick elevations beneath a tiled roof with high quality windows and doors throughout. The property is located close to both the city centre, train station, Addenbrookes and the Bio Medical Park.

    The house is approached across a shared private drive past a double garage to a modern wooden door. The door opens in to a vestibule, and beyond into the hall with travertine stone floors and double height ceilings with a large arched window which provides plenty of natural light. The central hall communicates with all the principle rooms on the ground floor including the exceptional kitchen breakfast room.

    There is a large island with breakfast bar along one side at one end, plenty of floor and wall mounted modern shaker units with granite work surfaces and a number of integrated Neff appliances including but not limited to four ovens, five ring induction hob, double fridge and double freezer. The large utility room has the same high quality doors and surfaces and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble drier. A set of bi-folding doors run across the width of the back of the house and a set of French doors give a further access to the terrace and gardens beyond.

    To the left of the kitchen and hall is a sitting room currently used as a playroom by the current family with a working gas fireplace.

    Two sets of doors on the right of the hall lead into a double reception which spans across the depth of house. Currently this arranged as a dining room overlooking the front of the house, with a working fireplace. At the rear the “sitting room” has views and access to the rear garden through a set of French doors and further set of bi-folding doors.

    A solid oak staircase leads to the wide first floor galleried landing. There are three well-proportioned bedrooms on this floor including an exceptional principal with a “bank” of wardrobes and a large en suite shower room with twin sinks. There are two further bedrooms one of which benefits from an en suite shower room. The family bathroom deserves a special mention with floor-to-ceiling tiles, flooring, walk in shower and a large bath. The second floor is currently arranged as three bedrooms one of which is en suite.

    Outside the rear garden is laid mainly to lawn bordered interspersed with shrubs. There is also a workshop with power and light, two further garden sheds, bike and separate bin store. To the front there is parking for a number of cars and a double garage with electric doors.

This, on paper, is a wonderful house but when I saw it in the flesh I was surprised how light and airy it is. Real thought went into the best way to live in a property when this was built.
