A bright and much improved 3 bedroom first floor apartment, enjoying a peaceful position situated just off Huntingdon Road. The property forms part of a select development of apartments, surrounded by well-tended communal gardens and for sale with the benefit of no onward chain.
This 3 bedroom apartment enjoys a pleasant position in this select and very well cared for development, situated just over 2 miles from Cambridge City Centre. No.13 has undergone various improvements; additions include a refitted kitchen, bathroom and cavity wall insulation installed throughout the building in 2013.
The accommodation comprises a sizeable entrance hall with built-in storage cupboards and space for coats and footwear. There is also a spacious open-plan living/dining with further storage, benefitting from a triple aspect and pleasant views over the communal gardens. The kitchen has been fitted with a modern range of units; integrated appliances include a washer-dryer, dishwasher, fridge/freezer and oven with induction hob and extractor over.
There are 3 bedrooms, 2 of which are comfortable doubles and include built-in cupboards. The bathroom has been fitted with a white suite comprising a low-level WC, wash hand basin with storage below and a panelled bath with shower over, complemented by attractive tiling, mirror cabinet and a heated towel rail.
Outside, the property is surrounded by exceptionally well kept communal gardens, mainly lawned with mature stocked borders and an array of flower-beds. There is plenty of residents’ parking on a first-come, first-served basis.
The property has a share of the freehold interest and there are approximately 976 years remaining on the lease with a previous annual
service charge of approximately £1,240 per annum which includes water, buildings insurance, window cleaning and upkeep of communal areas.
Agents note: it is our understanding properties in this development cannot be sub-let. We also understand the residents’ service charge is being revised due to very substantial existing reserves, and is expected to be lower than the current fee.
Girton offers a fantastic balance between living within the city limits and enjoying the traditional charm and facilities of Girton village. It is within 2 miles of the west University site and 2.5 miles from the very centre of the city with excellent dedicated cycle routes and a regular citi 6 bus service.
There is a newly opened Sainsburys supermarket at Eddington – the new north west Cambridge development, and also a small Co-op by Girton College, which is open 7 days a week until late. The middle of Girton village is about a mile away and there are a number of pubs and restaurants including The George and The Old Crown. In addition there is a Beefeater restaurant and the Felix hotel on Huntingdon Road, a short walk from Thornton Court.
There is a primary school in the village that feeds into Impington Village College (3 miles) plus a tennis club and golf course. Also within close proximity, is the new University of Cambridge primary school in Eddington, which received an ‘outstanding’ rating from Ofsted (the only outstanding primary school on the north side of Cambridge). Many of the city’s private schools are on the west side of the city, so are easily accessible.
