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.


595 Newmarket Road is one of the more rare, larger houses, which stands back from Newmarket Road at the end of a small run of period houses leading up to the landmark Ivett and Reed building.

As a Victorian build, this home has the advantage of size and character, whilst the interior has been updated to modern standards over the last 3 years with care to retain its elegance. The refurbishment also goes deeper than the beautiful cosmetics, including new central heating, rewiring and insulation to the inside of the external walls and beneath the suspended timber floors.

The impressively broad hallway gives access to a stylish, ground floor shower room, a traditional front-facing sitting room with moulded cornicing and a period fireplace, and a family room that opens into a superb new kitchen / dining room with stone worksurfaces, a polished ceramic tiled floor and broad folding doors on to the garden.

The first floor provides a large main bedroom plus two further bedrooms, a shower room and separate W.C.

A basement underneath the kitchen provides excellent storage and could potentially also be suitable for conversion.

In front of the house is a driveway for at least two cars with a side pedestrian access to the rear. A raised timber deck comes off the kitchen with steps down to a paved terrace and a large lawn. The garden has an overall depth of about 45m / 150ft.

The Newmarket Road area is a very convenient and thriving place to live, with major retail parks, supermarkets and leisure facilities within walking distance. It is just 2 miles from the historic city centre and close to the pleasant riverside open space of Stourbridge Common.

There is nearby primary schooling, which feeds into Coleridge Community College, part of the Parkside Federation.

It is equally convenient to get out of town, with a pleasant walk or cycle of about a mile leading to Fen Ditton with its traditional and riverside pubs and Junction 34 of the A14 within 2 miles. Under development also is the nearby ‘Chisholm Trail’ is a new walking and expressway cycling route, which will connect up the city’s two rail stations and the north and south sections of the Busway cycleway.
