A share-of-freehold ground floor apartment with covered parking, private garden and zero service charge, in a brilliant city centre location.
Sturton Street is superbly located in the historic Romsey area of the city within walking distance of not just the numerous independent, vibrant pubs, bars and shops in the area but also the larger retail areas of Newmarket Road, the Grafton Centre and the city centre itself.
It is a predominantly Victorian street and carries very little car traffic making it surprisingly peaceful.
The property was built in the 1960s as one of just three apartments within the building and has a number of benefits that are particularly rare and pleasing for the area and its type.
A covered parking space, the middle of the three, fronts the street with the property placed behind it giving excellent privacy. It looks on to a generous, leafy, private rear garden immediately off the living space (the two first floor flats also have their own gardens beyond, but do not share any access). It is also owned as a share-of-freehold meaning no service charge, ground rent or costly future lease extension.
It has gas central heating and UPVC double glazed windows and is for sale with no onward chain.
The area is conveniently situated between East Road and Mill Road, around half a mile east of the City Centre with its combination of ancient and modern buildings, winding lanes, excellent choice of schools and wide range of shopping facilities.
The property is about a 12 minute walk from Cambridge Railway Station with direct links to London. Mill Road, The Grafton, Beehive Shopping Centres and Cambridge Retail Park are also a short walk away. The city centre is reached by foot in just 20 minutes.
Schooling is excellent and the area falls within the catchment of St Matthews Primary School, secondary provision is at Parkside Community College both of which are Ofsted rated as outstanding.
