A substantial (1,640 sq ft) top floor apartment with wrap-around balcony, terrace & two parking spaces


42 The Belvedere is situated on the top floor of this prestigious block of apartments just south of the city centre. Cambridge city centre is 1½ miles distant which offers a wide range of recreational and cultural amenities including fashionable pubs, bars and restaurants, museums and theatres along with the historic Cambridge Colleges - 31 in total. Cambridge Leisure - a large multi screen cinema, bowling and restaurant complex and The Botanical Gardens - a tranquil 40 acre garden open to the public are both in the immediate vicinity. Excellent shopping facilities including The Grand Arcade shopping mall and market square can be found within the city's historic core. Access to London's Kings Cross and Liverpool Street stations is via Cambridge railway station which is within walking distance (for most). International air travel is available at Stansted Airport (28 miles), via the M11 (junction 11) (2.5 miles) towards London.


42 The Belvedere was constructed around 2006 and was skilfully reconfigured (by the original developer of the scheme) from 2 separate units into one large apartment and as a result, now occupies the whole floor of this block.

The property is well presented and has a large open plan sitting and dining room which is triple aspect, has 2 entry points to the terrace and a mainly east-west orientation and attracts a great deal of natural light. The eat-in kitchen/breakfast room has a comprehensive range of matt grey cabinetry with a range of Miele and Kuppersbusch appliances and a pull out larder along with deep pan drawers and access to the terrace. To the north, there are 3 double bedrooms, all with built-in wardrobes and access to the balcony terrace and the master has an en suite shower room fitted with Villeroy & Boch sanitary ware. A study, with eastern aspect (or 4th bedroom) along with a family bathroom complete the accommodation.

The property, which has carpeted bedrooms and Amtico flooring elsewhere has electric under floor heating throughout, is well planned and is being offered for sale without an onward chain. The accommodation can be seen in greater detail on the attached floor plan.

There is a wrap-around balcony with panoramic views over Cambridge and distant views towards Newmarket, Six Mile Bottom and the Gog Magog hills. To the north is a wide terrace running the depth of the property which enjoys an east and west outlook and attracts afternoon and evening sunlight. There is ample space on the terrace for dining along with space for a number of potted plants or indeed garden furniture.

The communal gardens comprise a well maintained raised triangular lawn with paved pathways. Beneath the gardens is a resident's under croft garage accessed by remote controlled roller gates. Number 42 benefits from 2 owned adjacent parking spaces (118 & 119) and has the use of the resident's cycle store.

The Belvedere has a resident's leisure complex, open from 5am through to 10pm, it boasts a swimming pool, steam room and a gymnasium, with treadmills, rowing machines, weights and several flat screen televisions. The block also has a team of porters on site who look after day to day affairs.

Service Charge £6,507.42 (£3,253.71 payable twice yearly) and Ground Rent £250 paid annually.

Square Footage: 1,640 sq ft
