Tenure: Leasehold

For those looking for City Living but wish to be away from the hustle and bustle of every day family life, look no further than 23 Darwin House. A stunning penthouse apartment with views over the River Cam.

Set within the prestigious awarding winning Cambridge Riverside Development, this highly sought after complex of apartments built by Berkeley Homes is carefully linked by public and semi-private landscaped courtyards and manicured garden squares. Unlike the other blocks in this development there are only 23 apartments in Darwin House making it the smallest block, there is also a private garden for the use of Darwin House residents only. There is direct access to Midsummer Common which is the largest green open space in the city and then on to the river itself.

The Riverside Development has its own leisure complex which includes a resident's gymnasium and benefits from a "front of house" 7 days a week concierge service, underground car parking and secure bike store. This high-tech apartment also benefits from Berkeley Homes "Platinum Specification" which is the highest grade on offer and includes underfloor heating, a touch control home-operating system with an integrated surround sound and visual system operated via Apple Airport wireless device and digitally compatible TV/FM aerial points.


From entering the ground floor reception area with security intercom, there is a distinct feeling of quality and the communal areas are immaculately maintained. The top floor apartment can be approached in the lift or by stairs.


As you enter the apartment the first thing that strikes you is the reassuring clunk of the front door. Having bought "off plan" the internal layout from the original plans has been altered by our client and makes for an easy everyday living experience.

The UTILITY CUPBOARD off the hallway is a large cupboard which houses the hot water cylinder, wall mounted boiler and plumbing for a washing machine.

Stepping into the open plan LIVING / DINING ROOM / KITCHEN AREA it is immediately obvious why our clients have loved living here. With floor to ceiling windows and sliding doors, the room is swamped with ample natural light. The room has a solid wooden floor and is of excellent size. Although currently split into three designated areas, being the sitting area, dining area and study, the simple re-arrangement and placement of furniture really gives you complete control and flexibility on what best suits you. Three sets of sliding doors allow easy access onto the wrap around balcony and the garden terrace.

The open plan KITCHEN / BREAKFAST AREA is ideal for the keenest of cooks or for meeting the demands of everyday life. For those leisurely nights when entertaining family or friends the "open plan" lay out allows for open conversation without being hidden away from your guests. Fitted with a comprehensive range of base and eye level soft close units and draws with a white stone composite work surface and in set sink and drainer, various integrated top of the range Miele appliances to include two single ovens, built in combination microwave and matching coffee machine, wine cooler, five ring induction hob with retracting vertical extraction hood and a built in dishwasher.

There are three large bedrooms, the MASTER BEDROOM has floor to ceiling windows and sliding doors to the wrap around balcony, fitted floor to ceiling wardrobes and a stylish EN-SUITE SHOWER with double "walk-in" shower cubicle, contemporary style low level flush WC and "floating" wash hand basin, beautifully tiled throughout and floor to ceiling window ensures maximum natural light.

The TWO FURTHER BEDROOMS both have floor to ceiling wardrobes and offer direct access through the sliding doors onto the wrap around balcony.

After a long day at the office, what better way to relax than a hot soak in the contemporary style BATHROOM which comprises a deep wood panel bath with "rain drencher" shower over, "floating" wash hand basin and WC, complimented by stylish tiling.


The "wrap around" balcony is a fantastic feature and gives arguably one of the best "all round" views within the complex and towards the River Cam. Leading round to the "garden terrace" which encompasses the living room, many days have been spent sat outside enjoying the south facing sunshine. The terrace is of good size and currently benefits from a range of plants and shrubs to ensure ample colour and a variety of fragrances throughout the year. What better way to end the day than enjoying drinks and food on the terrace with trusted friends and watching the beautiful evening sun sets across the Cambridge skyline.

There is an allocated parking space in the underground car park.

TENURE - Leasehold 999-year lease commencing 2012. (To be confirmed) Service charge / ground rent applicable
