Durnford Way is situated off Brimley Road, just to the north of the city and offering easy access to the city centre, the world renowned Cambridge Science Park and main commuter roads.
The property was built in the 1970’s, so it is more modern than its surrounding neighbours. The property is set on a generous plot, benefitting from additional garden space which was acquired some years ago and particularly transforms the space to the rear.

The property is approached via a generous gravel driveway to the front with parking space for several vehicles. The entrance hall leads to all the rooms: sitting room, kitchen / dining room, bathroom and bedrooms. The sitting room stretches the depth of the house with windows to the front and sliding doors to the rear garden. The kitchen / dining room also looks out over the beautifully maintained rear garden, with the kitchen enjoying numerous wall and base units, integrated double oven, hob with extractor over, stainless steel sink with waste sink and drainer, as well as space for a large fridge / freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. There is also a moveable kitchen island which is very versatile for everyday use. The dining area can accommodate a good size dining table and side table and also has sliding doors to the rear garden.

The bathroom is large in size with a white suite comprising a corner bath, wc, wash hand basin and separate shower with wireless/thermostat controls as well as a cupboard. The boiler was replaced in August 2016 to a combination boiler with the added benefit of HIVE controls. Bedrooms 2 & 3 are of similar size and could accommodate double beds and a wardrobe, whilst the master bedroom spans 5.66m x 3.64m and currently houses a super king bed as well as multiple wardrobes.

Outside, there is an attached single garage with a hinged garage door to the front and single door to the garden. There is also side access to the rear garden which is enclosed, mainly laid to lawn and complimented by gravel, and shrub borders.

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.
