A first-floor maisonette in need of general updating throughout offering good sized accommodation. It faces a small green, close to the centre of Trumpington and is superbly convenient for Addenbrooke’s and the city.
Monkswell is very nicely tucked-away in a quiet, yet central south-city location close. It is ideally situated, close enough to the city to be convenient, but far enough out to be peaceful. The property is in need of general updating throughout and has no onward chain.
The accommodation comprises an entrance hall with loft access and entry to a utility room, which could also serve as a study and useful storage area. There is a bright sitting/dining room, which benefits from the afternoon sun and has pleasant views over the communal gardens. Adjoining the dining area is a kitchen, which has a range of base and wall-mounted units, ample work surfaces and spaces for appliances, a pantry and a wall mounted gas boiler.
The bedroom is particularly spacious, measuring 10’10" x 12’8" with a fitted range of units and again facing the small green. The bathroom is fitted with a three-piece suite.
Outside, to the front of the property is a large green stocked with a variety of mature shrubs, trees and cherry blossom. There is a small rear garden area, which is gravelled and offers a drying area and cycle storage. Communal parking is on a first come, first served basis.
There is a current service charge of (£tbc) per annum and the lease has about 104 years remaining. To be confirmed by the vendors solicitors.
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. Another new railway station, Cambridge South has been proposed and is expected to be nearby Addenbrooke’s Hospital and the Biomedical Campus.
The area has two primary schools with a third under construction and a brand new state-of-the-art secondary school with excellent community sporting facilities. A number of Private schools are within cycling distance.
There are also various restaurants, pubs, shops, a post office, hairdresser, surgery, chemist, Waitrose supermarket and two new country parks.
