A characterful detached cottage within the favoured 'Kite' district with small walled courtyard


Warkworth Street is situated within the favoured near central 'Kite' district of Cambridge, a fashionable area of predominantly Victorian and some Georgian properties. Large open public spaces such as Midsummer Common, Christ's Pieces and Parker's Piece are located in the immediate vicinity which host a wide range of events such as Strawberry Fair, Midsummer Fair, The Big Weekend and Race for Life.

Excellent shopping facilities are close at hand including the Grand Arcade shopping mall and The Grafton Centre which has a number of High Street brands such as Debenhams, Next, Boots etc which is within an easy stroll from the house which also benefits from a range of well know café's/restaurants and a multi screen cinema complex.

Cambridge railway and bus/coach stations are close by which have rail services to London from 48 minutes and national travel.
Sports facilities are situated at Kelsey Kerridge Swimming Pool and Sports Centre just beyond Parker's Piece along with the University Fenner's Cricket Ground just beyond.

St Matthews Primary School, Parkside Secondary and Sixth Form are located close by.

There are a number of popular pubs close by including The Cricketers, Free Press and The Elm Tree all within the immediate neighbourhood.


Prospect Cottage, unlike every other house on Warkworth Street, is a unique detached cottage extending to 1,075 sq ft over ground and first floors of painted brick elevations beneath a slate roof. There are attractive retained planted window boxes to the front, which from inside has views to Parker's Piece via the arch at the end of Mud Lane and Parkside. The cottage retains many original features such as panelled doors, a fireplace and small pane sash windows and the accommodation is accessed via a hallway.

To the rear is a covered former courtyard, with glazed roof and painted brick walls which is used as the dining room and has glazed double doors to the small but completely private, walled courtyard. The kitchen has honed granite working surfaces and cream coloured base and eye level cabinetry along with integrated slim-line dishwasher, 4 burner gas hob and stainless steel oven with space for a large freestanding American style fridge/freezer. To the front is a through 'double' sitting room which has a feature open fireplace and low level wall to wall recessed book shelving.

At first floor there are three bedrooms including 2 larger bedrooms which have built in wardrobes. The rear bedroom has a sloping ceiling and glazed double doors leading to a 'Juliet' balcony to the south east. The bathroom is fitted with white sanitary ware including a contemporary basin and shower over the bath with marble tiling.

The property which has a gas fired central heating and a ground floor WC/shower room with plumbing for washing machine can be seen in greater detail on the attached floor plans.

It is felt that the property could suit a professional/early retired couple or small family looking for a conveniently situated central city home close to most amenities and facilities.
