A conveniently situated family house on a favoured south of city road BEST & FINAL OFFERS TO BE RECEIVED BY 12PM ON 21ST OCTOBER 2016


40 Barrow Road is situated on a no through road at the bottom end of this much sought after road to the south of the city centre, accessed off Trumpington Road, and enjoys a wide and deep plot facing west and south.

The historic city centre is 1½ miles away and offers an extensive range of recreational and cultural amenities including a wide array of fashionable public houses, 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 Cambridge University Botanical Gardens with its tranquil 40 acres of gardens which are open to the public and holds a plant collection of over 8000 plant species from all over the world, are both close by.

For the commuter there is ready access onto the M11 at Junction 11 about two miles to the south providing fast access to Stansted Airport and London. Cambridge station with mainline rail services into King's Cross and Liverpool Street from 49 minutes is 1.5 miles away.

There are excellent, renowned independent and state schools within walking distance including St Faiths, The Perse School, St Mary's Girls School, The Stephen Perse, The Leys and the much respected Hills Road Sixth Form College. Other schools, including King's and St John's College Prep Schools are also easily accessible.


40 Barrow Road is a detached property constructed in the 1950's of brick elevations beneath a tiled roof. The property has fairly typically laid out accommodation extending (including the garages) to 2,219 sq ft over two floors.

On the ground floor accessed via a large reception hallway there are two well proportioned reception rooms, a large hardwood conservatory, a utility, downstairs shower room and kitchen/breakfast room with views over the large rear garden.

Upstairs there are 3 double bedrooms, a 4th smaller bedroom and a family bathroom with a separate WC. The property can be seen in greater detail in the floor plan attached. The previous owners enjoyed living in the property for a number of decades and it is felt that the property might well benefit from an extension and reconfiguration programme which could also include an element of refurbishment.

The house is set back from the road behind a well proportioned front garden and dwarf front wall with a mature hedge. A concrete driveway leads to a double garage. The house is well situated within its plot with a wide and deep garden surrounding the property on three sides. The gardens have been laid mostly to lawn with well stocked borders. In all 0.32 of an acre.

Agents note - please note that the property is subject to the usual Trinity College covenants - please contact Ed Meyer for further details.
