Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A rare opportunity to acquire an award winning single storey residence with a self-contained annexe and detailed planning permission to substantially alter and extend, situated in one of the most prestigious roads in Cambridge.

City Centre 1 mile, Mainline Railway Station 1 mile, Addenbrooke's Hospital/Biomedical Campus 2 miles, M11 (Junction 11) 2.5 miles (distances are approximate).

Situated just a mile from the heart of the city centre, Latham Road is surrounded by school playing fields and Coe Fen which leads down to the River Cam and creates a unique rural environment for such a convenient city location.

Some of the most highly regarded schools in the city such as The Leys, St Mary's, The Stephen Perse Foundation, The Heritage and St Faith's are all within easy walking distance. Parkside Community College is within about three quarters of a mile and there are nursery schools in nearby Chaucer Road. The wonderful University Botanic Garden is within about a quarter of a mile and the property is well placed for access to the city centre, which provides an attractive combination of ancient and modern buildings, winding lanes, colleges and extensive shopping facilities. The city also offers a wide range of educational and cultural amenities and is not only world renowned for its academic achievements, but has also become an important centre for the 'high-tech' and 'bio-tech' industries with the University's Research and Development Laboratories, the internationally renowned Cambridge Science Park and Addenbrooke's Hospital/Biomedical Campus, which is planned to be one of the largest centres of health, science and medical research in the world.

Historical Note
Latham Road was originally laid out as a deliberate plan by the owners, the Pemberton family, to create an area of special character. Initially, this was a leasehold estate with each of the plots having clear restrictions imposed relating to house design, building lines and general layout. Latham Road was a farm track which remained gated at the Trumpington Road end until the 1930s. There is a considerable variation of house style along the road, which is still lit by gas lamps, ranging from 'Arts and Crafts' to Queen Anne and the Modern Movement.

Latham Road is named after the Reverend Henry ("Ben") Latham (1821-1902) former Master of Trinity Hall (1888-1902). There is a fascinating book published in 1996 tracing the history of Latham Road and its residents, entitled "Rus in Urbe" by Jane Renfrew, Magnus Renfrew and John Rose.
