House in great location with lovely south facing outlook adjoining university playing fields.

A charming terraced house, on a quiet street in Newnham, one of the nicest parts of the city, is an easy walk or cycle from the town centre and railway station - perfect for a single person or couple, possibly with a young child.

The house is warm and bright with plenty of storage space. It is very much our home, decorated with rugs, original artwork and good quality furniture and cookware.

Downstairs there is a dining room, cosy living room with flat screen TV and well equipped kitchen.

Upstairs there is a bedroom with comfortable double bed, wardrobe and chest of drawers. The second bedroom is currently used as a study with great views of the garden and fields beyond. It has an upholstered seat which converts to a small double bed/mattress for occasional guest use. Access to the bathroom is through the second bedroom. It has a plain white suite with shower (excellent pressure) and bath.

Outside the rear garden is mostly laid to grass. Extra accommodation is provided by the well-insulated garden studio/fitness space with a single sofa bed and wooden flooring perfect for yoga practice. Bi-fold doors open on to a small decking area with barbecue.

The garden is south facing with access to Downing College sports field through a small gate. It's the perfect place to go for your daily run or a stroll by the river. A short walk by the side of the fields takes you to the iconic Grantchester meadows by the river Cam which meanders from Grantchester village where you can have afternoon tea.

Several independent food shops, including a deli and craft baker, are minutes away. There is also a Co-op supermarket which is open most of the time. A fish and chip van calls nearby every Tuesday.

There are excellent road connections. The M11 and A14 are a short drive away. There is on street residents' parking. We can arrange a pass for a small charge if required. Stansted airport is half an hour by car.
