About this property

  • Cambridge Riverside is a prestigious complex of apartments built by Berkeley Homes which are interspersed with manicured garden squares. The scheme has its own resident's gymnasium and benefits from front-of-house porterage.

    Number 43 is situated on the top floor and as a result offers excellent privacy and superb uninterrupted views. The apartment is well proportioned and extends to approximately 1,252 sq ft of accommodation with panoramic views to the west and north over the river Cam. The property, which benefits from a Berkeley Homes "Platinum Specification" finish, has under floor heating throughout along with oak flooring to the hall and reception areas. The spacious open plan sitting room is glazed almost entirely on two sides, and furthermore opens onto a large terrace which measures in excess of 1,000 sq ft.

    There is a well fitted kitchen with a long composite white stone breakfast bar and working surfaces with integrated “Siemens” appliances, a full range including two single ovens, a five ring induction hob, coffee machine, combination microwave, two warming drawers and a wine cooler, along with dishwasher and fridge/freezer.

The master bedroom has wall to wall wardrobes and high spec en suite bathroom with separate shower. This bedroom and the second bedroom are both doubles and have sliding glazed doors leading to the wraparound terrace.

    The outside space is a particular feature of the property and extends to over 1,000 sq ft of entertaining space. The terrace is largely paved and has been ‘divided' by planters to create informal sitting and dining areas along with raised railway sleeper planters to create a salad and herb garden. To the rear, enclosed by bamboo in planters is a formal dining area which attracts the late afternoon and evening sunshine.

    This high tech apartment includes a “whole house control” audio visual system with iPod docking station and digitally compatible TV/FM aerial points.

    There is a resident's under-croft gated car park below the block, shared with Keynes and Darwin Houses, there is an allocated parking space 171, along with ‘caged' cycle stores.
