A spacious ground floor apartment within the Highsett development overlooking 'parkland' gardens close to the centre of Cambridge


"Highsett" is situated along Hills Road between Glisson Road and Station Road within walking distance of The Botanical Gardens and Cambridge railway station. Fast and regular mainline services are available from the station to London's Kings Cross and Liverpool Street stations from 48 minutes. There are excellent everyday shopping facilities along Hills Road and further comprehensive shopping facilities within The Grand Arcade and Grafton Centre shopping malls. "Cambridge Leisure" a large leisure complex housing a multi screen cinema, bowling alley and a variety of restaurants is situated some 500 metres to the south. Cultural amenities including the Cambridge Colleges and various museums are all available within the city's core. Schooling for all age groups in both the state and independent sectors are all available close at hand.


"Highsett" is a prestigious gated Grade II listed modernist scheme of properties including two and three storey houses and one quadrangle block of just 38 apartments built during the late 1950's.

Number 16 is situated on the ground floor and is well proportioned, extending to 830 sq ft and located in a peaceful position to the rear of the scheme overlooking and immediately adjacent to well maintained parkland style gardens. Of particular note is the open plan sitting and dining rooms (the latter could be used as a 3rd bedroom if required) which inter-connect via bi-folding doors and have windows extending the whole width of the rooms which allow for plenty of light and wonderful views.

To the south west is the kitchen which has white fronted drawers and cabinets along with a freestanding washer/dryer, fridge and cooker and looks into communal gardens. There are two bedrooms to the south west, both of which have full width windows and built in wardrobes along with a bathroom with newly fitted white sanitary ware and a tall chrome towel rail.

The property could suit an owner-occupier, professional or retired couple or indeed those looking for a central pied a terre.

Outside the apartment, along the communal landing there is a large locked store whilst at ground floor is a locked communal cycle store.

Unallocated parking is available within the gated parking area adjacent to the property. Access to Highsett can be via Hills Road and on foot from Tenison Avenue, Station Road or from Hills Road.

Current annual service charge is £2,200 which can be paid in advance or monthly instalments of £183.33.

Square Footage: 830 sq ft
