STEP INSIDE A recently constructed family home, this contemporary townhouse is presented to an exceptional standard throughout and offers substantial accommodation over three floors. Boasting a range of eco-friendly features, such as triple glazing, underfloor heating throughout, a mechanical heat recovery system and solar panels.
On entering the property through the front door, the reception hallway is a very good size and immediately displays the level of finish and the quality of fixtures featured throughout. Access to the kitchen is immediately found on the right via sliding doors, and, alongside an abundance of storage space, the reception hallway is connected to another lobby area, which leads to an ideally positioned WC and the large integral garage. The kitchen/dining room is a very generous size at over 23m2 and is beautifully designed with a modern U-shaped collection of units and integrated appliances, all in a grey gloss and woodeffect style. This is a very bright and airy room, helped by the tasteful engineered wood flooring, the strategically placed spotlights and downlights, the high ceilings, and the large window to the front aspect.
Upstairs on the first floor, the landing provides access to a beautifully light and comfortable living room, designed similarly to the kitchen with bright, white walls, spotlights and engineered wood flooring. The first floor also comprises the third double bedroom, which enjoys two windows to the front aspect, one of which becomes a Juliet balcony, and a full wall of integrated wardrobes. The family bathroom is situated adjacent and features a gleaming three-piece suite, a shower over the bath, stylish floor and wall tiles and a large heated towel rail.
On the second floor, the generous landing enjoys a nook at the far end and a large floor-to-ceiling window; perfectly sized for a study or reading area. Off of the landing, there are doors to a large airing cupboard and a further two double sized bedrooms, both wonderfully bright and airy and each featuring two windows, three of which are multifunctional and become Juliet balconies. The master suite is particularly impressive, boasting a full wall of integrated wardrobes and a door to its own ensuite with shower room, WC and hand basin and double sized walk in shower enclosure.
STEP OUTSIDE To the rear French doors lead out onto a private timber decked roof terrace garden; perfect for entertaining a group of guests or for sitting out and enjoying the sun with a book. The terrace enjoys a Southerly aspect and is a sun trap. There is a communal garden to the front of the property, benefiting from multiple pieces of art. A generous integral garage has a powered up and over door and offers power and lighting. There is further space within the garage for bike and bin storage. Overall a fantastic storage space.
Trumpington is an incredibly sought-after and up and coming area of Cambridge, and it benefits from being a little over 2 miles from the city centre. It offers a fantastic combination of city living with excellent train and bus links, including the guided busway, but it is also within very easy reach of the local countryside and associated villages, such as Grantchester and the Shelfords. Trumpington is well situated for access to the M11, Addenbrooke's hospital, The Biomedical campus, Royal Papworth Hospital and it is very close to an abundance of excellent primary and secondary schools, many local pubs and restaurants, shops and leisure centres.
SELLERS INSIGHT "As first-time buyers, we initially bought this property off plan as a new build, just over 5 years ago," says the owner. "We were drawn to the overall layout, the bright rooms and the quality of the features, such as the triple glazing, underfloor heating throughout and the heat recovery system."
"This development is Skanska's only UK housing development," continues the owner, "and the homes are designed in mind with Scandinavian principles, for example, the high ceilings and large windows, all with a focus on natural light. We particularly found charming the welcome bench by the front door, which each property in the development has. It's a really nice place to sit, chat and have a drink with neighbours."
"Our favourite room in the house has to be the living room with its doors leading out onto the terrace. On a sunny day, with the doors open, it's such a lovely living space. It was perfect for us because we wanted a home with an outdoor area, but that would only require minimal maintenance. The terrace garden is a great size for outdoor dining and for hosting BBQs, and there are a few nearby country parks to enjoy one only 5 minutes away from the house."
"Partridge Close is just off of Addenbrooke's Road, via Kingfisher Gardens and Skylark Road, but it's incredibly quiet because it is not a through-road. The community is also incredibly friendly, and we have lots of lovely neighbours who we will greatly miss when we move. As a couple, this was our first home and, with the arrival of our baby daughter and our little dog, it became our first family home too. We have many happy memories living here, and we will miss it very much!"
