Southacre Drive is a private road off Chaucer Road, one of the city's most attractive and prestigious locations. It is a short walk from the University Botanic Gardens and the iconic riverside commons of Lammas Land, Sheep's Green and Coe Fen. It is very much at the heart of the historic city yet is peaceful, green and very private.

Chesterford House is one of 6 low-rise buildings at the end of the road that form a crescent around 2 acres of splendid mature gardens and the property occupies the south-west corner of the ground floor with French doors onto its own private terrace and straight out to the gardens.

The property briefly comprises an entrance lobby with a built-in cupboard. The open plan living/dining room benefits from a duel aspect a provides ample space for a separate living and dining table. The kitchen has been fitted with a range of wall and base-mounted units and integrated alliances including oven, microwave oven and gas hob with extractor over while leaving room for additional appliances including a fridge/freezer, washing machine and dishwasher.

The three bedrooms are all of a good size with bedroom one benefiting from a built-in cupboard and ensuite shower room. The family bathroom completes the accommodation and has been fitted with a white suite with a shower over the bath and finished with floor to ceiling tiles.

There is a parking space immediately beside the property and a good number of visitor spaces nearby, plus covered bike sheds and bin stores. The garages on site are available to rent, subject to availability.

The apartment has a 984 years remaining on the lease with a service charge of £4308.85 per annum and is reviewed yearly and adjusted in line with RPI. The service charge includes upkeep of all grounds, external decoration and maintenance of all communal areas and private road, the water supply and, unusually, the upkeep and replacement of the double glazing. We understand no ground rent is payable on the apartment.
