The city provides an attractive combination of ancient and modern buildings, colleges, winding lanes, the tree lined River Cam and an extensive range of shopping facilities. The property is also extremely well placed for many of the colleges, University departments, "The Backs" and delightful walks along the river to the nearby village of Grantchester.

The property is approached via a gravelled driveway, providing off street parking for 2 vehicles and screened by mature hedging and trees. The rear garden, which backs on to a private lake, is mainly laid to lawn and bordered by mature trees and shrubs creating a high level of privacy.

The Lake 
Quarried for its clay to produce bricks during the Victorian area and then coprolites for fertilisers and explosives during the 1900s. The lake naturalised after World War 1 when it filled with water from Binn Brook and natural springs. It is now privately owned by 14 properties, including 79 Barton Road, known as 'Boltons Pit Company Limited', for which there is an annual charge of £40.
