Forbes Close is off Lime Avenue and is part of Countryside Homes' flagship Aura development, accessed from Long Road and perfectly placed for Addenbrooke's and access to the city from the south. The property will soon benefit from its close proximity to the Cambridge South station which is due to open in 2025.

The apartments are finished to a higher-specification than in Countryside's other developments, in particular the higher ceilings give them greater volume and an immediate sense of providing more space with excellent storage in the hall and master bedroom and Karndean flooring installed in the living/kitchen area and hallway.

The bathrooms are also particularly well-appointed and the kitchen includes base and wall mounted units, integrated washing machine, dishwasher, fridge freezer, oven and hob with extractor over.

This particular apartment is quietly located away from passing traffic. Its bedrooms and balconies face east into the morning sun and an additional window in the living space allows for light through the day.

It is on the second floor, accessed by stairs or lift. The ground floor of the building provides a secure bike store with locking hoops and undercroft parking with remote-controlled gated access and an allocated space for the apartment.

Leasehold details:

299 year lease from 2016, 293 years remaining.

Service charge £3,152 pa

Ground rent £325 pa, which is reviewed every 10 years and adjusted in an upwardly direction in accordance with the Retail Prices Index. 

Trumpington is a thriving, fast growing part of the city that still manages to retain its village identity and sense of community. It is exceptionally well located for access into the Addenbrooke's campus, out to the M11 and into the city by car, bus, guided bus, one of a few purpose built cycle routes, or even an enthusiastic walk. The city's mainline station can be easily reached along the guided busway cycleway without having to mix with car traffic at all.

The area has three primary schools and a brand new state-of-the-art secondary school built in 2016 with excellent sporting facilities. Many of the city's finest private schools are within easy cycling distance. There are also various restaurants, pubs, shops, a post office, barber, GP surgery, pharmacy, library and community centre. There is a major Waitrose supermarket and a Sainsbury's local.

Trumpington Meadows nature reserve links Trumpington through to Byron's Pool and Grantchester and there is a second country park between Trumpington and the Addenbrooke's campus. Various bridleways and footpaths lead immediately out into the countryside towards Harston, Haslingfield, Barton and Grantchester.

    Broadband availability and predicted speed: obtained from Ofcom on January 24, 2022

    Broadband speed is measured in megabits per second, with the number returned showing how fast the connection is. Each reading is based on the highest predicted speed of any major broadband network for services that deliver the download speeds. The following are the different readings that we may display:

    Basic: Up to 30 Mbit/s
    Super-fast: Between 30 Mbit/s and 300 Mbit/s
    Ultra-fast: Over 300 Mbit/s

    The data is updated three times a year. The checker results are predictions and should not be regarded as guaranteed. For more information, see:

    Mobile phone signal availability and predicted strength: obtained from Ofcom on January 31, 2022

    Mobile signal predictions are provided by the four UK mobile network operators: EE, O2, Three and Vodafone. Predictions can vary significantly from the coverage you may actually experience as a result of local factors (especially terrain). Ofcom has tested the actual coverage provided in various locations around the UK to help ensure that these predictions are reasonable. The values shown against a property can be broken down as follows:

    Clear: No bars, no signal predicted
    Red: One bar, reliable signal unlikely
    Amber: Two bars, may experience problems with connectivity
    Green: Three bars, likely to have good coverage and receive a data rate to support basic web services
    Enhanced: Full bars, likely to have good coverage indoors and to receive an enhanced data rate to support multimedia services
