Cottenham is a large and popular village situated about 6 miles north of Cambridge with a good road connection providing easy access to the A.14, M.11, Cambridge Science and Business Parks etc. The village is served with a good range of local facilities including a post office, butchers, bakers and also doctor and dental surgeries.

Franklin gardens is a cul-de-sac situated off Lyles Road which, in turn, links the High Street with Harlestones Road. There is a short footpath that leads from the end of the cul-de-sac to the High Street.

This retirement bungalow is one of a group in a sheltered scheme built in the 1980s for South Cambridgeshire District Council with occupation restricted to persons over 60 years of age. It is being sold on a shared ownership basis to provide an opportunity for retired people to buy their own home at an affordable price level. The Council retains a 25% share but no rent is charged for this. The bungalow is of traditional brick cavity construction and has uPVC double glazing and gas central heating.

The bungalow stands well back from the road, there are unallocated parking bays to the front and within the scheme there is a small community centre for use by the residents.
