A high specification second floor apartment with a broad covered balcony looking south on to a protected, mature tree belt off Long Road.
Green Lane is part of Countryside Homes’ flagship Aura development and the apartment is therefore of a particularly high specification and standard of finish. It is also very well positioned, with its bedrooms facing north to remain cool in summer and its fantastic open-plan living space facing south into the sun and opening through broad glazing on to a private balcony which looks out to a mature tree line, providing the living space with much better privacy than many.
The kitchen includes stone worksurfaces and integrated appliances and the bathrooms are luxuriously appointed. The bedrooms both have tall, inward-opening French doors and the master has fitted wardrobes.
The building features a secure entry phone, lift and generous secure bike store and there is a secure, undercover private parking space belonging to the apartment behind the building.
There is high-efficiency double glazing and gas-fired underfloor heating throughout.
The lease has 245 years remaining and the ground rent is £350 and service charge currently about £1800.
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.
