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.
Salisbury Place is nicely tucked-away within walking distance of the village centre and adjoins the local primary school.
The development is specifically for those over 55 years old who work 16 hours or fewer a week and is run by Metropolitan Housing Association. This means it is a pleasant, peaceful place to live and benefits from a part time on-site warden paid for as part of the service charge that is currently about £144 per month. This also includes maintenance of the leafy communal gardens that surround the development and free use of the laundry.
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 two primary schools with a brand new state-of-the-art secondary school opening in 2016 which will also bring excellent sporting facilities. A number of Private schools are within cycling distance. There are also various restaurants, pubs, shops, a post office, barbers, surgery, chemist, Waitrose supermarket and two new country parks.
The flat is on the first floor and has a sitting room, re-fitted kitchen/breakfast room, double bedroom and new fitted quality bathroom. It has good storage space including a generous cupboard on the communal landing and there is gas fired central heating to radiators and double glazed windows.
There are residents parking spaces and space for visitors around the site and on neighbouring Monkswell.
The lease has around 68 years left to run and there is a ground rent of just £25 per year.
