The four bedroom detached Shaftesbury combines classic Arts and Crafts inspired architecture with an interior layout designed to more than meet the needs of the modern family.
Multiple windows on three sides flood this home with light, enhancing the sense of space, while simple, yet elegant design makes the most of every square foot.
The ground floor is split between an impressive formal lounge and a more casual family kitchen / dining room, with ample space in both rooms. The kitchen comes fully fitted with designer units and premium quality appliances, and benefits from a separate utility with exterior access, while the dining / living area enjoys both a large front window and a double sized patio door to the garden beyond. There is also a downstairs cloakroom off the main hall.
Upstairs, the central landing leads to four double sized bedrooms, including an en-suite master bedroom, as well as a comfortable family bathroom.
Perfectly simple in style, the Shaftesbury is simply perfect for the larger family who demand more from their home and their lifestyle.
About the Development
Alconbury Weald has its own community shop, where you’ll find newspapers and day to day groceries, and the shopping facilities on site will grow with the development. You’ll also find a small selection of shops in Alconbury and Little Stukeley, plus Waitrose and Tesco Extra supermarkets in nearby Huntingdon.
A dedicated health centre is planned as part of the development, but meanwhile, residents can find GPs at Alconbury Surgery on School Lane (Sat Nav PE28 4EQ call 01480 890281) and dentists at The Anchor Dental Centre in Huntingdon (Sat Nav PE29 7HN, call 01480 418558)
The Cambridgeshire countryside is peppered with fine gastro-pubs in charming villages. Trip Advisor rates The Cock in Hemingford Grey, The Mermaid in Ellington and the Pheasant Inn in Huntingdon amongst the best, along with the Barley Mow and the Crown Inn, also in Huntingdon.
For traditional restaurants, Alex’s Café Restaurant (Mediterranean), The Abbot’s Elm Restaurant (European) and the Old Bridge Restaurant (British/European) all come highly recommended in the town.
The development has its own brand new primary school that opened for new pupils in September 2016. It will eventually have a choice of three primary schools on the site, along with its own secondary school, opening for the 2019/20 school year.
Alternatively, you can choose the OFSTED ‘good’ rated local primary school, Alconbury CofE Primary, or one of several primary schools in Huntingdon, such as St John’s Primary, which is also rated ‘good’.
Secondary pupils can choose the impressive Hinchingbrooke School, set in the historic buildings and grounds of Hinchingbrooke House.
There’s plenty to do already at Alconbury Weald, with sports clubs and societies based at the new primary school, and a thriving social scene based around the café and gym at The Club.
Further afield, you’ll find a choice of sports and activities at One Leisure in Huntingdon, as well as a full programme of National Hunt jump racing at Huntingdon Racecourse.
For evening entertainment, try the multi-screen Cineworld in Huntingdon, or take in some culture with Shakespeare at The George, or the Performing Arts Centre in the grounds of Hinchingbrooke House.
Huntingdon’s flagship Chequers Court Shopping Centre is currently undergoing a major redevelopment, creating a brand new, modern shopping experience, anchored by three major stores. The 100,000sq ft expansion plan will also create 700 parking spaces in the centre of the town.
For a more comprehensive shopping experience, visit the Queensgate Shopping Centre in Peterborough or choose from the Grand Arcade, Grafton Centre or Lion Yard in Cambridge.
Aloconbury lies close to the intersection of the north/south A1 and the east/west A14, providing easy access in all directions. Peterborough and Cambridge are both around 20miles drive, with Northampton 38miles and London around 75miles.
The centre of Huntingdon in just a few minutes drive away, where you’ll find Huntingdon Station, with over 740 park and ride spaces. Trains to London take just 54minutes, with services every 10minutes in peak times, while Peterborough is just 16minutes in the other direction.
To make commuting even easier, the development will ultimately get its own station, Alconbury Weald, as part of a major investment in the East Coast Mainline.
