Characterful detached Grade II Listed house with home office and double garage.
Formerly two crofters' cottages forming part of the Pemberton Estate and dating back to the mid-17th Century, 18 Grantchester Road is believed to be one of the oldest surviving residential properties in Trumpington. The property is a characterful four bedroom detached house, full of charm and history that has been renovated to a high standard to offer modern comfortable living. The house has a wealth of period features which include exposed timbers and floorboards, parquet flooring, inglenook fireplaces, leaded windows and timber window frames.
There are two well-proportioned reception rooms on either side of the hall. To the left the dual aspect drawing room has a feature fireplace and to the right the family room/snug has an attractive open fire with a copper hood. The kitchen and dining space looks out over the garden again with a feature inglenook fireplace, modern shaker style kitchen units, granite work surfaces, a butler sink, Neff gas hob and double Kuppersbusch ovens. There is a ground floor wet room, a useful boot room and a utility with space and plumbing for washing machine and tumbler dryer.
On the first floor are four bedrooms and a family bathroom with free-standing roll top bath, low level WC and wash basin.
18 Grantchester Road is located in the middle of the village Conservation Area opposite the church, so the view of the steeple which has been enjoyed for centuries is sure to be preserved for the ownership of a new occupier.
The house is approached behind a traditional brick wall and privet hedge with a central wrought iron gate. A pathway leads through a front garden laid mainly to lawn to a painted door with a mature wisteria adorning the wall on either side. To the rear of the house the gardens are completely enclosed by a gorgeous brick wall and laid mainly to lawn with mature boarders, a few specimen trees and established shrubs. At the rear of the garden is a covered courtyard with a double garage to one side with access onto Campbell Lane and a home office with a multitude of uses.
