About this property

  • Shawms is a Grade II* listed building sitting on the West of Cambridge city centre, set back from a quiet no through road and approached down a private drive. The house was designed in the modernist style by Margaret Justin Blanco White and was built in the late 1930's having been commissioned by a University professor.

    Of such important architectural significance, it is one of just two houses built in the last 100 years to have achieved Grade II* status. As such, very little has been altered from the original design other than the creation of a new kitchen downstairs, which was installed where the garage used to be. The kitchen is now a bright and social space, with a dedicated breakfast room that leads out to the garden. Just next door is a cosy sitting room with a wood burner. Also on this floor are three bedrooms, a bathroom and a separate WC.

    Upstairs, the main sitting room spans an incredible 10 metres and is fully glazed to the south with views over the garden. The original upstairs kitchen is still in place and is made useful when entertaining. Further down the hall are two double bedrooms, both also with lovely views of the garden and a family shower room.

    Up one more floor is a studio which sits in the middle of the roof terrace and makes a unique office space with uninterrupted views of the garden and woodland beyond.

    Outside, the south facing garden extends to approximately 1.2 acres and is laid mainly to lawn. There is a small paved area for outdoor dining and a gravel path which takes you along the back of the house. An avenue of trees at the bottom of the garden takes you through to a wild garden and down to a lake.

    At the front of the house is a double garage as well as space for multiple cars to park.
