A three bedroom first floor flat with potential to improve, set behind a green off Trumpington High Street.
The property is part of a crescent set around a small green at the junction of Trumpington High Street and Anstey Way and is superbly convenient.
At the other end of the crescent is a row of shops including the local Post Office, a barber, a takeaway and a bike shop but 8a occupies the first floor of a solely residential part of the building, making it easier to obtain a mortgage on.
The property has been owned for a number of years as a buy-to-let and has been generally maintained, though there is now excellent potential for improvement and it is unusual in offering three bedrooms at this price.
There is gas fired central heating and the windows are UPVC double glazed.
The freeholder is Cambridge City council, meaning there is a pleasingly low service charge of £146 per year and the lease was 125 years from 1982 leaving about 88 years remaining.
The property will be vacant from June.
Trumpington is a thriving, fast growing part of the city that still manages to retain its village identity and sense of community. It is exceptionally well located for access into the Addenbrooke’s campus, out to the M11 and into the city by car, bus, guided bus, one of a few purpose built cycle routes, or even an enthusiastic walk. The city’s mainline station can be easily reached along the guided busway cycleway without having to mix with car traffic at all.
The area has three primary schools and a brand new state-of-the-art secondary school built in 2016 with excellent sporting facilities. Many of the city’s finest private schools are within easy cycling distance. There are also various restaurants, pubs, shops, a post office, barber, GP surgery, pharmacy, library and community centre. There is a major Waitrose supermarket and a Sainsbury’s local.
Trumpington Meadows nature reserve links Trumpington through to Byron’s Pool and Grantchester and there is a second country park between Trumpington and the Addenbrooke’s campus. Various bridleways and footpaths lead immediately out into the countryside towards Harston, Haslingfield, Barton and Grantchester.
