A generous, completely refurbished ground floor apartment facing south and west with French doors opening on to 2 acres of handsome mature gardens in a peaceful, private road off Chaucer Road close to Sheep’s Green and the Botanic Gardens.
Southacre Drive is a private road off Chaucer Road, one of the city’s most attractive and prestigious locations. It is a short walk from the University Botanic Gardens and the iconic riverside commons of Lammas Land, Sheep’s Green and Coe Fen. It is very much at the heart of the historic city yet is peaceful, green and very private.
Chesterford House is one of 6 low-rise buildings at the end of the road that form a crescent around 2 acres of splendid mature gardens and the property occupies the south-west corner of the ground floor with French doors onto its own private terrace and straight out to the gardens.
It was comprehensively refitted in 2017 including a new boiler and hot water system, new kitchen, bathroom and en-suite, new flooring and decoration. It now provides comfortable and highly attractive accommodation throughout.
There is a parking space immediately beside the property and a good number of visitor spaces nearby, plus covered bike sheds and bin stores. The garages on site are available to rent, subject to availability.
The apartment has a 988 year lease, with the leaseholder also acquiring a share of the freehold company. There is a service charge of about £269 per month which includes upkeep of all grounds, external decoration and maintenance of all communal areas and private road, the water supply and, unusually, the upkeep and replacement of the double glazing.
