Urwin Gardens forms part of the stunning Ninewells development situated on the south-eastern outskirts of the city adjoining open countryside and benefitting from outstanding views towards the Gog Magog Downs.

Ninewells takes its name from a local nature reserve, Nine Wells, a historically important site containing several chalk springs that formed the source of Hobson Conduit, which once provided Cambridge with its drinking water.

Carefully designed to embrace and protect its natural environment, the development includes wide avenues, footpaths, green spaces, wet and dry attenuation ponds and varied planting.

Cambridge is a world renowned University city, providing an attractive combination of ancient and modern buildings, colleges, winding lanes, excellent shopping facilities and the tree lined River Cam. The city has also become a "high-tech" and "bio-tech" hub with the University Research and Development Laboratories, the internationally acclaimed Cambridge Science Park and the world renowned Addenbrooke's Hospital/Biomedical Campus, which is within a quarter of a mile of the property and easily accessible on foot or by bicycle. The property is also well placed for access to the Babraham Institute and Granta Park, about 4 miles and 6 miles respectively. Cambridge offers extensive cultural and shopping facilities together with an outstanding choice of independent schools and Sixth Form colleges, many of which are within close proximity. For the commuter, the city's mainline railway station is within about 2 miles and provides services to London's King's Cross and Liverpool Street in approximately 52 minutes and 67 minutes respectively and the M11 (Junction 11) is within about 3 miles providing access to Stansted Airport and London.

Golf enthusiasts are particularly well served with the highly acclaimed Gog Magog Golf Club (providing two 18 hole courses) within about a third of a mile.
