About this property

  • Christ's Lane is probably the most central privately owned modern apartment block in Cambridge, constructed by Land Securities during 2008/2009 in conjunction with, and on top of a retail complex. The property is one of 15 apartments, number 11 being a duplex which is situated at the north-western side of the block and extends to approx. 1182 sq ft. The property is approached via a discreet residents entrance along Christ's Lane with a video entry-phone system and a stairwell and lift ascending to the residential element along a covered walkway with views of Christ's College roof tops.

    Of particular note is the open plan sitting room and connecting kitchen which is excellent for entertaining, the kitchen is fitted with integrated Kuppersbusch and Smeg appliances with granite working surfaces. The sitting room has hardwood flooring and is mostly glazed to the rear elevation with full height glazed doors which lead to a private sandstone paved garden.

    There are two double bedrooms and a full contemporary bathroom situated on the first floor. The main bedroom also has an en suite shower room fitted with Villeroy & Boch sanitaryware and Grohe fittings and the main bedroom has double built-in wardrobes. The walled courtyard garden is fully enclosed and has ample space for eating out. There is a side pedestrian gate leading to the rear giving access to bike and bins storage etc. Within the garden is a large studio, fully glazed to one side and a tiled floor. This space could easily lend itself to a useful home office, art studio or similar.

    From the covered walkway at the front of the property and from the kitchen window there are superb elevated ‘city' views towards Little St Mary's church and King's College chapel and overlooking Christ's College below. The property has gas fired central heating system and is available with no upward chain. There is no allocated parking available at Christ's Lane but car parking can be leased nearby.
