A superbly and sympathetically refurbished Victorian townhouse, situated in this most highly sought after west city location.

Merton Street lies within the highly regarded Newnham area, which is widely recognised as one of the best residential locations in the city. Local facilities include a post office, chemist, bakers, butchers, grocers, small supermarket and the highly regarded Newnham Croft Primary School. Lammas Land Recreation Ground, with a large children's play area, tennis court and paddling pool, is within a few hundred yards. The historic city centre is just 1 mile away and provides an attractive combination of ancient and modern buildings, colleges, winding lanes and extensive shopping facilities. The property is extremely well placed for many of the University Departments, 'The Backs' and delightful walks along the River Cam to the nearby villages of Grantchester and Coton. There is also an excellent range of schools for all ages within half to three quarters of a mile, including King's College School and St John's College School in Grange Road.

Planning Permission 
Planning permission for a single storey rear extension to create a utility room and cloakroom, was granted by Cambridge City Council, reference 16/0714/FUL on the 1 July 2016.

A delightful enclosed garden to the rear enjoys a southerly aspect and is a further particularly fine feature of the property. Enclosed by fencing and well screened, in parts, by trees and established bushes, it contains an area of lawn, well stocked shrub beds, timber Store and extensive decked terracing, with wisteria clad pergola. There is also a useful storage area on the eastern side of the property, which also provides access to a shared, covered passageway with space for wheelie bins and access on to Merton Street.
