Formerly two crofters’ cottages forming part of the Pemberton Estate and dating back to the mid- 17th Century, 18 Grantchester Road is one of the oldest surviving residential properties in Trumpington. It is a lovely, character four bedroom property, full of charm and history that has been modernised to a high standard. Having recently been completely redecorated it offers around 2090sqft of beautifully presented accommodation in the main house with a further 545sqft of outbuildings. The house has a wealth of period features which include exposed timbers, exposed floorboards, parquet flooring, inglenook fireplaces, leaded windows, timber window frames and sills as well as a carve brick in the garden wall depicting initials and a date in the 18th century. The reception rooms are spacious and comprise a large drawing room with fireplace and family room/snug with a stunning inglenook open fire with a copper hood. The kitchen and dining space looks out over the garden again with inglenook fireplace and a modern kitchen with a good range of fitted units, granite worksurfaces, butler sink, Neff five burner 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.
The property is approached through a pretty gate opening to a path leading to front door and round the sides of the house to a wrought iron pedestrian gate to the rear gardens. The front gardens are laid to lawn, bordered by brick walls and hedging to Grantchester Road. The rear walled gardens are delightfully secluded and attractively landscaped with well-tended lawns and established borders and mature trees. To the back of the plot is a cart lodge style courtyard with tri-folding doors to the double garage. This in turn opens via remotely controlled roller doors to Campbell Lane beyond (access to this is on the right past the neighbouring thatched cottage). The property comes with the added benefit of separate home office which would also work perfectly as a studio/gym/games room etc. On one of garden walls is an inscription by a previous tenant TS dating from 1735.
