Property Description

Capstan Close is a select and sought after development in a quiet position, well placed within easy striking distance of the City by car or on foot. Adjoining the river, the properties are both imposing and well designed and the accommodation comprises entrance porch with door to reception hall with stairs to first floor and double doors to the dining room, which has double glazed sliding doors to the rear terrace. There is a ground floor cloakroom and wc and double bedroom suite with en suite bathroom. The kitchen/breakfast room is well equipped with a range of units, a breakfast bar and integrated Miele appliances. There is also a useful utility room with door to the side aspect. On the first floor there is a landing and the living room spans the rear of the house with windows to three aspects including doors to the balcony overlooking the rear garden and river beyond. There are two bedroom suites on the first floor with en suite facilities and fitted wardrobes. On the second floor there is a landing and versatile accommodation which can provide two large bedrooms, one of which has a Juliet balcony and en suite shower room, together with a walk in storage space. There is a sliding wall which, when opened, makes the top floor open plan, but equally suited to those looking for a self-contained suite. The property is presented in excellent order and has double glazing, burglar alarm and gas central heating, along with CCTV. There is also a water softener and water filter in kitchen. Outside at the front there is a well-groomed lawn, driveway parking and access to the garage with electric door. Gated access leads to the side of the house where there is a timber shed and paved area, which in turn leads to the rear garden which has mature well-stocked borders, a large terrace with arbour and a small bridge. This leads over the river cutting to the island which is divided between the neighbouring properties and has frontage to the main river and is a wonderful wildlife area with numerous mature willows, various trees and even a children's den. The setting is really quite unique and, combined with the extensive accommodation, the house really is one that should be viewed to be appreciated.

Capstan Close is located off Mariners Way, in the desirable area of Chesterton about 1 mile north east of Cambridge City centre (Market Square). The property is within easy reach of the Grafton Centre, Science Park and Cambridge North railway station which provides regular services to Kings Cross and Liverpool Street as well as Stansted airport. The wide range of local facilities includes a Post Office, Café, General store and large recreation ground with children's play area. In addition a nearby cycle footbridge gives easy access across the river to facilities in Newmarket Road, including large Tesco supermarket and Cambridge Retail Park.
