Located in the heart of the popular South-Cambridgeshire village of Bassingbourn, is this lovely extended and improved family home. Originally built as two separate properties, every room offers excellent space and flexibility of use. The ground floor comprises of a formal reception room with exposed brick fireplace, a modern kitchen breakfast room, utility room, bathroom with spa bath and an extended dual aspect lounge/dining room. Upstairs, are three generous double bedrooms and a modern shower room. Externally, there is a small outbuilding, and also a double garage. The garden is mostly patio with small grassed and gravel seating areas.

Bassingbourn offers excellent local amenities, including primary and secondary schools, a Church, local shops and convenience store with post office, hairdressers, a leisure centre and recreation ground, a bakery, pharmacy, garage, coffee shop and eat-in pubs. Further facilities can be found in the town of Royston, just fifteen minutes away, with fast and regular services from Royston train station to London Kings Cross. The university city of Cambridge is close by, taking around 30 minutes by car.

Originally built as two separate properties, every room of this beautiful terraced house offers excellent space and flexibility of use. "We initially bought the property for its lovely garden and double garage," says the current owner, "as my partner was transferring to being self-employed and working from home. However, as soon as we visited the property we fell in love with the uniqueness of the house itself."

The ground floor of this historic building, partly built around the old post office, comprises of a formal reception room with charming original beams and exposed brick fireplace, a beautifully stylish modern country style kitchen with range cooker, a large open plan living and dining room, utility room, bathroom with jacuzzi bath and an extended dual aspect lounge/diner. Upstairs, are three very generous double bedrooms, all very cosy with quirky angles, and a modern shower room. A particularly stunning feature of the house is the elegant curled iron banister to the unique wooden staircase, while tiled floors are both practical and smart.

Double patio doors open out onto shingles in the large garden. The garden itself features a generous patio area ideal for outdoor entertaining or al fresco dining, with landscaped grass and gravel areas. An outbuilding also offers the possibility for conversion into an office or annexe, with the property also boasting a double garage and plenty of parking.

Situated in the heart of popular Bassingbourn village, the property lies within walking distance of all local amenities including well thought of local primary and secondary schools. "Amenities locally are excellent," says the owner, "with good educational opportunities, shops, hairdresser and extremely welcoming local pubs." More comprehensive shopping facilities are to be found nearby in the market town of Royston, with Tesco supermarket on the northern outskirts of the town. Fast and regular train services are available from Royston station, just 2 miles from the property, travelling to London Kings Cross and the university city of Cambridge. Also convenient for commuting by road are the A505, A1 and M11, accessible just to the south of Bassingbourn village and leading to the M25 to London.

"We immediately fell in love with the pretty garden, which was part of the reason we were drawn to the house in the first place."

"Bassingbourn is a quiet village and the people very friendly, so that I will surely miss."

"I love the feature fireplace and the fact that part of the house used to be the post office."

"Due to the large size of the garden, over the 10 years we have been here we have hosted many barbecues and garden parties, amongst which a 1st birthday, a 30th and a wedding reception!"
