Situated just south of Cambridge city centre, the property is well positioned for access to a vast range of amenities including shopping centres, educational facilities and a number of green spaces including Lammas Land, Grantchester Meadows and Cambridge Botanical Gardens.

6 Barrington House is a well-appointed first floor apartment which offers incredibly spacious accommodation throughout. The entrance hall is of a good size with a generous storage cupboard and alcove storage space for coats and boots. The impressive dual aspect open-plan sitting / dining room has large windows and French doors providing access to the south facing balcony which overlooks the impressive, mature gardens. The kitchen / breakfast room is of a good size and is well appointed with a range of fitted units and integrated appliances.

Off the main hallway, there are 3 large double bedrooms all of which benefit from fantastic views over the mature grounds and the main bathroom. The master bedroom is of particularly generous proportions and benefits from a large built in double wardrobe and a spacious ensuite bathroom with separate shower cubicle.

The second double bedroom is also a very good size and would comfortably accommodate a double bed and also has the added benefit of a large built in double wardrobe. The third bedroom which is currently used as a study would also accommodate a double bed and associated bedroom furniture and as is the case for all of the bedrooms, benefits from a stunning views over the rear garden.

The spacious south facing balcony creates a peaceful seating area, ideal for al fresco dining overlooking the gardens. The apartment comes with an allocated parking space for one vehicle to the front of the property with a number of visitors’ parking spaces also available.

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.
