Bishops Road is an established and particularly desirable Trumpington road. It is lined by silver birch trees, carries no through traffic and offers excellent commuting access to Addenbrooke's into the city and out to the M11.
The house stands back from the south side of the road and has been extended on two storeys and comprehensively modernised by the current owners to form a fantastic house full of warmth and style.
The ground floor is centred around a large, extensively equipped kitchen / dining room with a utility room off and has three reception rooms: A study at the front, a family room in the middle and the main sitting room at the rear with French doors and tall glazing on to the garden and a wood burning stove.
The first floor has a bright, spacious landing with a walk-in wardrobe cupboard, a shower room and the four bedrooms including the master with en-suite shower room. Both rear bedrooms have vaulted ceilings.
The rear garden faces south and is wonderfully private and mature. Immediately off the sitting room is a timber deck sheltered by a pergola. This leads to a lawn and then through mature shrubs to a vegetable garden and orchard with raised beds and two timber buildings, a summerhouse and a bike shed, both with power and light. There is a paved terrace off the kitchen and a gated side access to the front.
Trumpington is a thriving, fast growing part of the city that still manages to retain its village identity and sense of community. It is exceptionally well located for access into the Addenbrooke's campus, out to the M11 and into the city by car, bus, guided bus, one of a few purpose built cycle routes, or even an enthusiastic walk. The city's mainline station can be easily reached along the guided busway cycleway without having to mix with car traffic at all.
The area has three primary schools and a brand new state-of-the-art secondary school built in 2016 with excellent sporting facilities. Many of the city's finest private schools are within easy cycling distance. There are also various restaurants, pubs, shops, a post office, barber, gp surgery, pharmacy, library and community centre. There is a major Waitrose supermarket and a Sainbury's local.
Trumpington Meadows nature reserve links Trumpington through to Byron's Pool and Grantchester and there is a second country park between Trumpington and the Addenbrooke's campus. Various bridleways and footpaths lead immediately out into the countryside towards Harston, Haslingfield, Barton and Grantchester.
