A fully refurbished, first floor apartment, providing bright, modern accommodation, with well maintained communal gardens and a useful storage shed. The property benefits from particularly low service and ground rent charges, which combined over the last couple of years have averaged £150 PA.
The property forms part of a small block of just four apartments, divided by a central stairwell. Number 57 benefits from a secluded position on the top floor with no adjacent neighbour. The block is set back from the road with large well-maintained communal gardens to both the front and rear.
Approached over a communal hallway with a secure entry system, the property is located on the first floor and enjoys elevated views over the gardens from the landing. The front door opens to a bright entrance hall with a useful coat cupboard and a second, larger cupboard which provides plenty of storage space and houses the newly fitted Heatrae Sadia Megaflo hot water tank.
The sitting/dining room is located at the far end of the hallway and this has plenty of space for a seating area at one end and a dining table and chairs at the other; a large picture window overlooks the front garden and provides lots of natural light. The adjacent kitchen has recently been refitted with high quality Magnet white gloss cabinets and there is a built-in Neff oven and hob with a Hotpoint extractor over. There is also space for a washing machine and fridge freezer. The bright, airy kitchen overlooks the communal gardens to the rear.
The property has a generous double bedroom with a built in wardrobe and there is a recently refitted bathroom with a bath with shower over, WC and vanity unit fitted with a basin and storage.
Outside, the communal gardens are well maintained and laid to lawn with a number of mature specimen trees. The block is orientated east to west with the rear garden enjoying a westerly aspect; best for enjoying the afternoon and evening sun. There is also a drying area and a newly installed shed.
The current owners have, during their ownership, replaced the heating with modern, efficient Dimplex Q-rad electric Eco heaters, updated the electrical systems throughout, re-fitted the kitchen and bathroom to a good standard, re-plastered the ceilings and installed new LED lighting. They have also erected a new shed for bike and garden furniture storage. A full list of improvements is available on request.
The property is leasehold with 93 years remaining. Ground rent is currently £10 p.a. and the service charge over the last couple of years has averaged £140 p.a. Both are payable to SCDC.
Coton is a unique village in this area, combining proximity to the city with rural charm. The High Street is a no-through road and so is free from through traffic and yet the village is hugely convenient giving near immediate access to the M11 at either junction 13 (North) or 12 (South). From Coton there is a direct, car-free route that runs from the end of The Footpath and takes cyclists to the Sedgwick University Campus and on to central Cambridge within 15 minutes.
The village has a small Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ primary school, a handsome traditional pub, modern village hall and large playing fields with active sports clubs. At one edge of the village is Coton Orchard farm shop and garden centre which also has a post office, butcher and café. At the other edge is Coton Countryside Nature Reserve. There is excellent access out into the surrounding countryside.
