Porson Road is a peaceful no-through road located on the favoured south side of the City in one of the best and most highly regarded residential areas. Situated off Trumpington Road, the property is superbly situated for access to the city centre, the railway station, Addenbrooke's Hospital and schooling for all ages. It is especially close to Cambridge's leading independent schools, with The Perse, St. Faiths, the Stephen Perse Foundation and The Leys all being a short distance away. There is also excellent access to the M11, south to London and Stansted Airport and north to the A14 and A1. Nearby are the beautiful River Cam, the historic Cambridge colleges, the Botanic Gardens and the pretty riverside village of Grantchester.

The property sits comfortably in approximately 0.31 acres of mature landscaped gardens backing onto school playing fields. The land on which the house is built was originally in the ownership of a Cambridge College, and plots of land were given to Fellows who then built a house of their choice. The gardens are a particular feature of the house; they contain a variety of mature and rare trees, shrubs and flowers, including the last in a long historic avenue of trees. The front of the house is mostly paved with a large horse chestnut tree providing privacy.
