Huntingdon Road is 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, Sainsbury’s Supermarket, 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.

Walsh House is a quite exceptional modernist family home. Designed in the 1980’s by renowned Architect Ivor Richards, the property is constructed around mature and secluded gardens which form the focal point for all principal rooms. The house has been carefully designed to ensure that natural light is present throughout. The hallway which runs through the entire house is well lit with a series of skylight windows which continue up the stairs to the snug family room which located above the sitting room.

The sitting room is a fabulous dual aspect room and is positioned centrally between the two wings of the property. The double height atrium floods this room with an abundance of natural light and creates a fabulous statement room with a beautiful open fireplace. Semi-open plan to the dining room, partially divided by a feature half height brick wall, this space is perfect for entertaining guests. With doors from each room opening directly into the garden, this cleverly thought-out space is equally as useable in summer as it is throughout the rest of the year.

The bedrooms are all of good proportions and all benefit from full height windows and private access to the gardens. There first wing of the house contains a double bedroom with windows and doors overlooking the gardens, a modern shower room with his and hers basins, utility / laundry room with space and plumbing for washing machine and dryer with ample space remaining for airy and ironing laundry and a large entrance hall with recessed storage for boots and coats.

The second wing offers 3 double bedrooms, again, all with their own access to the gardens. One of the 3 is a fantastic, self-contained dual aspect master suite with private lobby, large double bedroom and spacious bathroom with his and hers basins and access to the rear garden.

The house and gardens are set well back from the road behind a brick built wall which separates the driveway from the gardens and shields the property from Huntingdon Road and creates a secluded outdoor space. The gardens are well-stocked with a variety of shrubs and mature trees and bordered with an arbour over brick built pillars around three sides. There is ample driveway parking to the front of the property as well as a double garage with an electric up and over door.

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.
