Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

Ely Place is quietly tucked-away within walking distance of the village centre and is a leafy, established two-storey complex for over 55 year olds who work 15 hours or fewer a week and is managed by Metropolitan Housing Association.

This means that it is a pleasant, peaceful place to live and benefits from a part time on-site warden paid for as part of the service charge that is currently about £144 per month, which also includes the ground rent. This includes maintenance of the pleasant communal gardens that surround the development and free use of the laundry. A guest bedroom is available on site for a nominal charge.

The flat is on the first floor and has a sitting room, kitchen/breakfast room, double bedroom and shower room. It has good storage space including a generous cupboard on the communal landing and there is gas fired central heating to radiators and double glazed windows, making it efficient to run.

There are residents parking spaces and space for visitors around the site and on neighbouring Monkswell.

The asking price is for a 70% share of the property, but unlike most shared-ownership schemes there is no additional rental for the 30%. The ground rent is just £25 per year and a new lease of 99 years will be created at sale.

It is vacant and for sale with no onward chain.


Trumpington is a thriving, fast growing part of the city that still manages to retain its village identity and sense of community. It is exceptionally well located for access into the Addenbrooke's campus, out to the M11 and into the city by car, bus, guided bus, one of a few purpose built cycle routes, or even an enthusiastic walk. The city's mainline station can be easily reached along the guided busway cycleway without having to mix with car traffic at all.

The area has three primary schools and a brand new state-of-the-art secondary school built in 2016 with excellent sporting facilities. Many of the city's finest private schools are within easy cycling distance. There are also various restaurants, pubs, shops, a post office, barber, GP surgery, pharmacy, library and community centre. There is a major Waitrose supermarket and a Sainsbury's local.

Trumpington Meadows nature reserve links Trumpington through to Byron's Pool and Grantchester and there is a second country park between Trumpington and the Addenbrooke's campus. Various bridleways and footpaths lead immediately out into the countryside towards Harston, Haslingfield, Barton and Grantchester.
