A rare opportunity to purchase a delightful property, tucked away from the bustle of daily life in a charming area of Cambridge. Thrifts Walk is a quiet no through road (noted for its Grade II listed working gas lamp) situated off Chesterton High Street within walking/cycling distance of Cambridge City centre, railway station and Science Park. The river, Stourbridge and Midsummer Common are also within easy walking or cycling distance and a variety of shops and other facilities are close by on the High Street itself. There is also a regular bus service at the top of the 'Walk'.
