Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

Melbourn is a large village situated just off the A10 about 10 miles south of Cambridge and 3 miles north of Royston. It provides a wide range of local facilities including a variety of shops. The adjoining village of Meldreth and Royston both have main line rail stations. John Impey Way is a cul-de-sac situated off Trigg Way which, in turn, links Orchard Way with Fordham Way.

This retirement bungalow is situated towards the end of the cul-de-sac and is one of a group built in the late 1980s for South Cambridgeshire District Council with occupation restricted to persons over 60 years of age. It is being sold on a shared ownership basis to provide an opportunity for retired people to buy their own home at an affordable price level. The Council retains a 25% share but no rent is charged for this. A number of services are provided including a nearby community centre to which the residents have access. There is also an optional emergency 24 hour call system with pendant (£39 per quarter). The bungalow is of traditional brick cavity construction and has upvc double glazing and gas central heating. Although terraced, there is a covered passage way between 15 and 14.
