3 bed Town House
Highsett, Cambridge
beds 3 receptions 2 bath 1

LOCATION Highsett is an exclusive award winning scheme carried out in the 1960s in beautfully landscaped private gardens right in the heart of the city. It is situated between Hills Road and Tenison Avenue and is just a few minutes walk from the railway station in one direction and the main shopping/business centre of Cambridge in the other. It was originally designed and built for Span Developments and comprises a group of apartments together with a number of town houses of varying sizes and highly individual design. The scheme is unique in the way it provides a peaceful green oasis in an otherwise densely populated area.

THE PROPERTY Number 58 is one of the larger properties in the scheme and is a three storey town house which has recently been extensively refurbished to bring the accommodation fully up-to-date while retaining the character of the original Span concept. The works include high quality fixtures and finishes and the many interesting features include the provision of spacious, practical and unobtrusive storage areas, a Finnmark bespoke 2 person en suite sauna and an ingenious hinged partition between the third bedroom and the living area. There is an Leicht German kitchen, Duravit sanitary ware, Junckers hardwood flooring and an interior colour scheme designed by Farrow and Ball. The pretty walled garden provides peace and seclusion and there is a garage.

DIRECTIONS The entrance to Highsett is at the bend in Tenison Avenue . Number 58 is in the terrace in front of you as you enter.
