With character throughout, the sitting room has a feature fireplace and stripped wooden floors leading to a living room with multi fuel stove, granite hearth and French doors to the garden. The modern fitted kitchen also has doors leading to the garden. Upstairs there is a lovely master bedroom with a cast iron fireplace and sash windows to the front, the second bedroom has a loft hatch with folding steps leading to the loft.

The mature, part-walled rear garden is a real haven and has gated access out onto Saxon Road leading down to the river Cam and Midsummer Common. Along the river in the other direction is Stourbridge Common, leading to open countryside with cycle and walking routes. Cambridge City Centre is just under a mile away, whilst the main city station is 2 miles

Primary schooling is available at St Matthews and Park Street along with secondary schooling at Parkside Community College. There are also delightful riverside walks nearby and of course a wealth of social and cultural experiences to be enjoyed within this wonderful City.
We are advised by the owner that the solar panels were installed in 2012 and generates an income of around £600 per year.
“The current owner reports that she pays only £36pcm for both gas and electric”
"I love this house because its placed in the lovely riverside area which is basically a quiet cul de sac.
The river Cam is only 100 yards away from the house and it takes five minutes to cycle into the centre of Cambridge. If you turn right at the river it's a couple of minutes to stourbridge common leading to open countryside.
This house has always had a very nice feel to it and is always nice to be in.
From the moment I walked into this house 20 years ago, I knew I wanted to live here. It simply wraps itself around you and being yards from the river which has so much wildlife that I love.
Swans, ducklings, herons and kingfishers are regularly seen. To the right along the river is Stourbridge Common leading to open countryside perfect for walking and cyling. To the left is Midsummer Common. Where else can you walk through a buttercup meadow in spring on the way to the city centre. The house is also extremely convenient for the retail park and many supermarkets."
