A large two bedroom duplex apartment located in the middle of Cambridge with a large separate studio ideal for working from home.
Christ's Lane is a very central scheme of apartments constructed by Land Securities during 2008/2009 in conjunction with a retail complex which currently comprises names such as Zara, H & M and Metro Bank.
The property is one of 15 apartments, this being a well presented duplex which extends to approximately 1,043 sq ft with a terrace and a separate studio which could make a separate home office or additional accommodation. The property is approached via a discreet resident's entrance along Christ's Lane which has a stairwell and a lift ascending to the residential element along a covered walkway with views of Christ's College rooftops to the right.
Of particular note on the first floor is the open plan sitting room and connecting kitchen which is excellent for entertaining. The kitchen is fitted with integrated Kuppersbush and Smeg appliances with granite working surfaces. The sitting room has wooden flooring and is mostly glazed to the rear elevation with full height glazed doors which lead to a large terrace ideal for entertainment and a studio beyond. A cloakroom completes this floor.
There are two double bedrooms situated on the second floor, the principal has two double, built-in wardrobes and stylish en suite shower room fitted with Villeroy & Boch sanitary ware and Grohe fittings. There is also an additional bathroom, again with contemporary fittings and sanitary ware, adjacent to the second bedroom. The apartment, which has the benefit of a gas fired central heating system and is available with no upward chain, can be seen in greater detail on the attached floor plan.
There is no allocated parking available at Christ's Lane. Given the unique central position, other residents often decide to dispose of car usage, adopt a hire-when-needed basis or seek a car parking space on a lease in the neighbourhood.

In the centre of the city is a common misnomer but not in this case. Christ's Lane immerses you in city living whilst the elevated position and quite terrace takes you away from the noise.Ed Meyer
