A much improved and well-proportioned first floor apartment, well suited to first time / investment buyers alike and conveniently situated within easy reach of the village centre.
Monkswell is very nicely tucked-away in a quiet, yet central village location close to the local primary school. It is ideally situated, close enough to the city to be convenient but far enough out to be peaceful. The property has been undergone various improvements by its current owner. Additions include plastered ceilings, increased insulation, new quality carpets and laminate flooring throughout.
The accommodation comprises an entrance hall with loft access and entry to a utility room which also serves as a study and useful storage area. There is a bright sitting/dining room which benefits from the morning sun and has pleasant views over the communal gardens. Adjoining the dining area is a kitchen which has been fitted with a range of base and wall-mounted units; integrated appliances include a Bosch oven and induction hob with extractor over.
The bedroom is particularly spacious, measuring 10’10 x 12’8 and includes a built-in cupboard. The bathroom has been fitted with a white suite and is complemented by attractive tiling.
Outside to the front of the property is a large green stocked with a variety of mature shrubs, trees and cherry blossom. To the rear of the property is a communal garden which has been laid to lawn and bordered with stocked beds, the whole is enclosed by fencing. There is plenty of communal parking on a first come, first served basis.
There is a current service charge of about £420 per year and the lease has about 92 years remaining.
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 Sainbury’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.
