4 bed Semi-Detached House
Caxton End,
beds 4 receptions 2 bath 2

Caxton End is a peaceful residential road within walking distance of all village amenities. This delightful cottage was believed to have been built in 1872 and was originally a series of four farm labourers cottages and subsequently converted (along with number 30) into two and then separately extended over time.

Of particular note is the kitchen/breakfast room with breakfast bar and Rayburn, the living room (with wood burner) and dining hall with Welsh slate flooring and a large utility room and a shower room. On the first floor there are four very versatile bedrooms and a family bathroom. There is a delightful rear garden and parking. The property really needs to be viewed to be fully appreciated.

Bourn is a very popular and well served village situated in gently undulating countryside 9 miles west of Cambridge. It is extremely well positioned for access to the city as well as the M11 (north and south) and the A428, A14/A1. Within the village itself is a village shop, two renowned restaurants/pub, a doctors and a dentist and a primary school. For secondary schooling it is in the catchment for the highly regarded Comberton Village College as well as within easy reach of the many schools and colleges in Cambridge. There is also a good golf course with health club and swimming pool. For those needing to commute by train, Bourn is located just 10 miles from the market town of Royston with its mainline rail station offering a fast service into London Kings Cross (from 47 minutes).
