Tenure: Freehold

A skilfully altered, extended and refurbished Victorian townhouse with beautifully presented accommodation over 4 floors, in this prime central city location.

City Centre 0.5 of a mile, Cambridge Science Park 2 miles, A14 2.5 miles, M11 (Junction 13) 1.8 miles, Mainline Railway Station (2.5 miles), River Cam and Jesus Green 300 yards (distances are approximate).

8 Hertford Street lies just to the north of Chesterton Road, within 300 yards of the River Cam and Jesus Green, an extensive public park with outdoor swimming pool, tennis courts and childrens play area. The heart of the city centre with its attractive combination of ancient and modern buildings, colleges, and extensive shopping facilities is within about half a mile and easily accessible on foot or by bicycle. Cambridge is not only world renowned for its academic achievements but has also become a 'high-tech' and 'bio-tech' hub with the University Research and Development Laboratories, Cambridge Science Park and Addenbrooke's Hospital/Biomedical Campus.

For the commuter, the city's mainline railway station is about 2.5 miles away and provides services to London's King's Cross and Liverpool Street in approximately 52 minutes and 67 minutes respectively. A new railway station currently under construction on the east side of Chesterton (about 2.5 miles) is due to be operational by May 2017 and as well as providing services to King's Cross and Liverpool Street, it will also connect to the Cambridgeshire Guided Busway and provide an inter-change with the Park and Ride and local bus services.

Steps lead up to the front entrance door and down a small gravelled area with access to a covered side passageway providing useful storage facilities and access to the kitchen/dining/family room. An enclosed landscaped garden to the rear has been designed for ease of maintenance and includes decked and paved terracing, astroturf and a raised gravelled shrub bed.
