The apartment occupies the south-east corner of the top floor, setting it higher than its neighbours opposite giving it some of the best views in the area, looking south and east from its dual-aspect living space and private balcony.
A video entry system gives access to the communal hall on the ground floor with stairs and a lift up to the fourth floor where the apartment is located. There is a covered parking space in a private car park behind the building.
It is designed to be highly energy efficient including triple-glazed windows and doors.
There are 94 years remaining on the lease. The current service charge is £1619.69 per year and there is a peppercorn ground rent.
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, by bicycle on one of several 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 three primary schools and a brand new state-of-the-art secondary school that opened in 2016 bringing with it excellent sporting facilities including a private members’ gym.
A number of Private Schools are within cycling distance.
There are also various restaurants, pubs, shops, a post office, hairdresser, surgery, chemist, Waitrose supermarket and two new country parks.
