Charming period family home situated in a quiet location in the desirable village of Dry Drayton, just five miles from Cambridge City Centre. A beautiful house with many original features including sash windows, log burning stove and Aga, having three/four bedrooms and three reception rooms.
The Three Horseshoes, once one of two village pubs (the remaining Black Horse pub is set to open under new management in the very near future), is now long established as a family home having generous, well-proportioned accommodation throughout, comprising entrance lobby, reception hall, sitting room, dining room (formerly the Parish Room within the pub) with cellar beneath, kitchen/breakfast room, family room (also ideal as a visitors bedroom) with a ground floor shower room and with the family bathroom and three further bedrooms upstairs.
LOCATION Dry Drayton is a pleasant, primarily residential village within enjoyable cycling distance of Cambridge city centre via Madingley or by Oakington and the cycle/busway to the Cambridge Science Park and the new Cambridge North Railway Station. A new 'local' road due to open in 2021 will provide another route just 3.2 miles to Girton College. The village has a thriving social life (www.drydrayton.net) with local primary school and church and with further facilities available in the nearby village of Bar Hill including a post office, library, superstore, service station and golf club. Hackers Fruit and Vegetable farm shop is not far from the village. Impington and Comberton Village Colleges provide well-regarded Secondary State Education nearby. There is excellent access to the M11, A14 and A428, without any of them imposing on the village.
