Situated off Huntingdon Road just over a mile from Cambridge City centre, Sherlock Close comprises a group of purpose built apartments in a mature courtyard style development delightfully situated overlooking extensive central landscaped communal grounds. The location is likely to prove ideal for anyone needing access to university colleges and departments with a frequent bus service and cycle lane along Huntingdon Road. There is also easy access onto the region’s main commuter routes (A14, M11, A11) and a pedestrian short-cut to excellent local shopping facilities on Histon Road.

Dating from 1960, the highly regarded Sherlock Close development provides a well maintained and peaceful living environment. This particular development does not allow buy-to-let properties and therefore the majority of flats are owner-occupied creating a good sense of community.
Approached via a well-maintained communal spiral stairway and landing area, this apartment offers particularly well-proportioned living accommodation and the potential for somebody to enhance and put their own stamp on it.

The flat offers light and airy accommodation with large windows providing a splendid outlook over the communal grounds. The property comprises a large entrance hall, spacious lounge/dining area, kitchen, 2 bedrooms, bathroom and an additional room which would make an ideal study or storage area. Storage in the flat is plentiful and the property includes its own external lockable cycle store. There is also a communal parking area within the development.

The next steps...

Before making an offer on a property you will want to consider your financial situation, your income and outgoings.

Will you finance the purchase of your next property from the sale of an existing property which can put you in a chain, arrange a mortgage through your bank or buy the property outright.
To help you finance your next property purchase, we have a long established relationship with an independent mortgage broker who can discuss your situation with you.

Remember that having a 'mortgage decision in principle' can make you a more attractive buyer when you make an offer on a property. Contact our mortgage advisers for free, no obligation and impartial advice.
Some advantages of a broker are:

  • They do all the legwork for you, working on your behalf with the lender
  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • You get more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

However with your bank maybe able to:

  • Build off existing relationship (discounts if you have a checking/saving account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
  • Lower interest rates in some cases
  • Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.

When it comes to making an offer on a property a bit of negotiation is to be expected, however don't offer so little that you end up in a lengthy negotiation process, as you might lose the property altogether if someone else makes a higher bid.

If other offers have been made on a property we aren't legally able to tell you what they are, but we may indicate if they were close to the asking price.
