4 bed Detached House
Canterbury Street, Cambridge
beds 4 receptions 2 bath 2

Canterbury Street is located off Huntingdon Road, conveniently located within 1 mile (north) of the city centre close to a wide range of local facilities (3 minutes walk to local shop and pub; 8 minutes walk to supermarket, shops and post office). It is well placed for the region's main commuter roads with a junction onto the A14 a little over 2 miles away which, in turn, provides easy access to the various Science and Business Parks on the city outskirts. The River, the Backs and many of the University Colleges and departments are close by.

The property offers a rare opportunity to purchase a charming detached modern cottage just 15 minutes walk to the market square. It is nestled in a quiet neighbourhood and enjoys a tranquil outlook shielded from city and main road noise.

The skilfully designed house, which has been with the current owners for 8 years, offers well-proportioned and versatile accommodation arranged over two floors. The property was extended in 2007 with the addition of an attractive cedar clad family room featuring double-height ceiling, wood burning stove and concertina folding doors leading onto a secluded patio area. There is under floor heating to this room, the ground floor shower room and the study/bedroom 4 (which works well as a home office with extensive adaptable shelving and great light from a Velux window). The current phoneline based broadband service at the property gives 70Mb/s download and 20Mb/s upload speeds.

The house has a lovely mature south facing garden that is peaceful, easy to maintain, and offers a high degree of privacy. This compliments the overall calm homely feel of the house.
