Linton is a popular and thriving village situated about 11 miles south east of Cambridge. It has a particularly attractive High Street with many interesting period properties and there is a wide range of local amenities including shops, doctors surgery, post office and inns.

Chalklands is a cul-de-sac situated off Back Lane close to its junction with Coles Lane. Fronting onto a traffic free grassed area at the end of the cul-de-sac, this end terrace retirement bungalow is one of a group in a sheltered scheme built around 1960 for South Cambridgeshire District Council with occupation restricted to persons over 60 years of age. It is being sold on the basis of a new 75% shared equity lease 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 off peak electric heating. A new kitchen has recently been installed.

There is a small community centre within the scheme for use by the residents.
