A large bright, second floor apartment with a balcony that looks out to fields, located within this superb development to the South of the City with mature established communal gardens, garage storage shed, and parking area, available with no onward chain and a share of the Freehold.
The highly sought-after apartments at Gilmerton Court were built in the 1960s around a handsome quadrangle and were designed by renowned Cambridge architect and illustrator Peter Boston who was responsible for some of the significant Modern College buildings of the time.
The prominent architectural feature of the apartment is the broad, wall-to-wall windows that fill the generous rooms with light, without compromising privacy as some floor-to-ceiling windows can. The accommodation briefly comprises a large entrance hall with two large cupboards providing excellent storage.
The dual aspect living/dining room is over 30ft long and benefits from a sliding door onto a balcony. The kitchen overlooks the communal gardens and has been fitted with a range of base and wall mounted units with additional space for an oven with extractor over, washing machine, dishwasher, water softener and fridge/freezer.
Two of the bedrooms are doubles and have built in wardrobes while the third makes a single bedroom, which has previously fit a double bed or could be used as a bright home office/study. The bathroom completes the accommodation and has been fitted with a three-piece white suite with electric shower over the bath.
The property has a share of the freehold and has a current service charge of £2300 paid yearly and is sold with the benefit of no onward chain.
The property has use of the attractive, well-maintained communal gardens. There is a secure ground floor storeroom for the flat, suitable for bicycles etc as well as resident’s parking and single garage.
Gilmerton Court stands at the corner of Long Road and Trumpington Road within half a mile of Trumpington’s excellent facilities and with easy access into the City, Addenbrooke’s and all major Road links.
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 or one of a few purpose-built cycle routes.
The city’s mainline station can be easily reached along the guided busway cycleway without having to mix with car traffic at all. Another new railway station, Cambridge South has been proposed and is expected to be nearby the Biomedical Campus.
The area has three primary schools and a 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.
