Situated a little more than half a mile north of Cambridge City centre, this charming period property is extremely well-positioned for easy access to many university colleges and departments as well as the city centre in general. There are good local facilities serving the district including local shops, Doctor’s surgery, Histon Road Park and bus and cycle routes along Huntingdon Road, which leads onto the A14 just beyond Girton College. The railway station and Addenbrookes hospital are both within easy reach of the property as are the Science & Business Parks on the city outskirts accommodating some major high-tech employers.

An impressive entrance hall with original moulded archway serves all principal ground floor rooms and sets the tone for this well-proportioned and spacious family home.

Formerly 2 rooms, the front sitting room is a particularly generous room with a large bay window to the front aspect and glazed doors to the rear providing an abundance of natural light. High ceiling create an even greater feeling of space, with an open fireplace creating the ideal setting for cosy family nights in.

The Kitchen is a fabulously bright and airy space which is ideal for entertaining and well laid out for modern family living. The roof of the dining area is partially glazed which creates a really nice feature as well as allowing natural light to flow in. The kitchen is well appointed with a range of fitted units and integrated appliances. At the rear of the kitchen is a useful garden room which leads to the rear garden and houses a downstairs WC.

The stairs from the entrance hall lead to a half landing which provides access to the main family bathroom and a sizeable dual aspect double bedroom with views over the mature rear garden. Moving up to the main landing there are 2 further large double bedrooms – both with built in wardrobe storage, a single bedroom / study and a large storage cupboard under the stairs leading to the second floor. The front double bedroom is a particularly bright bay fronted room with views of Trinity College Sports Ground.

The second floor landing leads to 2 further double bedrooms, a dual aspect bathroom and a large storage cupboard. The front bedroom again offers lovely views over Trinity College Sports Ground with the rear bedroom commanding far reaching views of mature trees and across neighbouring greenery.

Outside the property benefits from generous front and rear gardens. The front garden is of a good size and the property is set well back from Huntingdon road. The rear garden is again of a good size and is largely paved with mature hedge boarders and a variety of shrubs. There is a small pond and a large shed to the rear. There is access to the rear via the shed.

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.
