40% SHARED OWNERSHIP. A superbly appointed, high quality first floor maisonette with generous living space and a south-west facing balcony. Nicely located on the Abode development, close to Addenbrooke's.

The apartment is accessed through a communal entrance that leads on to an attractive, balconied first floor landing where there is a private entrance door into the hall. The main living space is well-proportioned and has tall glazing and a door at the rear on to a private balcony that faces south-west into the afternoon and evening sun. At the front of the room is a superb kitchen area with integrated Smeg appliances, quality cabinetry and composite stone worktops.

There is a double bedroom, also with south-west facing tall glazing and a fitted wardrobe, a generous, high quality bathroom with a window to the front and a useful utility room off the hallway.

Behind the building is a car park with an allocated space for the property and further visitor spaces are also available.

The property is sold on a shared ownership basis with a 40% share for £126,000 (£315,000 full price). A rent is payable to the Housing Association for their 60%. It is possible to staircase to increase the proportion owned up to the full 100%. The rent and service charge combined is currently £427.18.

In order to qualify for shared ownership you must meet certain conditions prescribed by the Housing Association, including not owning any other property. Please ask for further details.

There is about 97 years remaining on the lease. The ground rent £250 per year.

Trumpington is a thriving, fast growing part of the city that still manages to retain its village identity and sense of community. It is exceptionally well located for access into the Addenbrooke's campus, out to the M11 and into the city by car, bus, guided bus, one of a few purpose built cycle routes, or even an enthusiastic walk. The city's mainline station can be easily reached along the guided busway cycleway without having to mix with car traffic at all.

The area has two primary schools with a brand new state-of-the-art secondary school opening in 2016 which will also bring excellent sporting facilities. A number of Private schools are within cycling distance. There are also various restaurants, pubs, shops, a post office, hairdresser, surgery, chemist, Waitrose supermarket and two new country parks.
