Cooke Curtis & Co are currently open for business, but working from home on reduced staff. Website enquiries, office phone numbers and emails should be answered as normal. If your call goes unanswered we’re probably on the other line.
We live nearby so with some notice we can open the office if something physical is required, for example to collect keys for essential repairs. We have processes in place to ensure any visits are handled safely. Whilst government advice permits we will also visit the office regularly to collect post.
We are unable to carry out physical viewings at properties but are working to provide video tours where we can.
We can provide remote valuations by video using WhatsApp, Facetime or similar.
We continue to work with solicitors, mortgage advisors and lenders to progress sales that are already agreed. Current government advice is that sales can complete and you can move house, with appropriate precautions, if necessary.
We are here for our buyers, sellers, landlords and tenants as much as we can safely be.

On the first floor there are three nicely proportioned bedrooms and a three-piece bathroom suite.
To the front of the house there is a drive for off road parking. Gated side access leads to the rear garden, which is enclosed by a high level brick wall allowing a high degree of privacy. There is a raised lawn, patio and small summer house.
Caxton is a small, attractive village about 10 miles west of the city boundary with easy access along the A428. It is surrounded by open countryside yet easily accessible and about equidistant from Cambridge, St Neots and Royston all of which have an excellent train service to London. The village is bypassed by the A1198, meaning it carries limited through-traffic.
It is within the catchment of the Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ rated primary school at neighbouring Bourn which feeds the high-achieving Comberton Village College and there is a similarly well rated nursery in Bourn also.
Further day-to-day facilities, including a major supermarket can be found in the next, larger village of Cambourne, the centre of which is less than 2 miles by car or 1.5 on foot.
