On the ground floor there is a stylish, contemporary kitchen with sleek, white units, granite worksurfaces, dishwasher and American fridge/freezer, built in Bosch microwave and Rangemaster 6 burner stove. There is a good-size utility and a useful walk-in pantry. Glazed, double doors open to the dining room which in turn leads through the family room/snug with bay window to the front and a fireplace fitted with a woodburner. A further reception room, with two sets of doors opening to the patio, and a cloakroom complete the ground floor.

On the first floor are five bedrooms, 4 doubles and a single/potential study, and three bathrooms, two being en-suite. The principal bedroom is unusually large with an extensive range of wardrobe cupboards. An added bonus is the converted loft space into two versatile rooms, ideal for working for home office/studio, teenager space or additional bedrooms.

To the front of the house is an extensive driveway providing parking for 4/5 cars and giving access to the garage with remotely controlled up and over door. The driveway is bordered by attractive shrub beds. The rear gardens of No 141 are delightfully secluded and benefit from good levels of sunlight. The garden is mainly laid to lawn with a large patio and additional raised terrace, ideal for al-fresco dining and entertaining. Full of established and colourful, seasonal planting and a kitchen garden, a utility area and greenhouse, the outside space compliments the house perfectly, being safe for both children and pets.

Thornton Road is a very pleasant residential street situated just off Huntingdon Road. The road links at the far end onto Girton Road taking you into Girton itself.

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.
