Full description

Courtyards which is situated just off Whittlesford Road, is an ingenious scheme of luxurious top quality homes of considerable picturesque appeal cleverly designed around a number of courts, which enjoys the serene atmosphere and intimate scale found in the "Courts" of the Cambridge Colleges. Each house is skilfully orientated to give maximum privacy with fine views over their gardens and landscaped communal areas which are generously endowed with a wealth of ornamental trees, bushes, cobbles and open lawned areas. Courtyards occupies the loveliest of settings situated in the south side of a small wood adjacent to the Cam which runs between Great and Little Shelford before reaching the famous Grantchester Meadows. The houses are set away from the road around communal green areas, which are jointly owned by all of the residents.

No.15 was built in the early 1960s and measures approximately 1312 sq ft. The ground floor comprises an entrance hall, which has a large cupboard under the stairs. The kitchen has a range of base and eye-level storage cupboards and drawers with space for white goods. There is a door which opens onto a courtyard garden. The dual aspect sitting/dining room is of a good size, with French doors opening on to the rear. In the sitting room there is an unused fireplace, which has been covered by a bookshelf, however could be re-opened if required (subject to the necessary constraints).
