2 bed Apartment
Highsett, Cambridge
beds 2

Highsett can be discovered behind high mellow walling just off Hills Road, close to the Botanical Gardens and within easy walking distance of Cambridge railway station and the city centre. Above average local facilities are readily available including a good bus service and excellent local shopping in nearby Mill Road and Hills Road. The Catholic Church is also close by.

3 Highsett is a stunning first floor apartment in this award winning city development providing easy access into the city and within easy walking distance of the railway station. This upgraded apartment has been finished to an exceptionally high standard with much attention being paid to quality and detail. Of particular note is the bright and airy living room with large southerly facing window which opens onto an adaptive living area which could be used as a dining room, study or third bedroom by using the cleverly concealed everyday bed within the built in units.

Vendor comment;
The apartment is 5mins walk to the station and with the fast train you can be at Kings X in 60mins after leaving the door. My second garden is a minute's walk away (Botanic Gds); the broadband is the fastest in the world given the relay is 20yds away on the street; there is no noise whatsoever from neighbours - incl upstairs - a result I think of the thick concrete floors. Most neighbours who live here do so for the relaxed liberal-collaborative approach to life - so there's lots of respect and never any fuss or friction
