Property Description

This modern Penthouse forms part of The Orangery, a select development of just 12 luxury apartments, built in 2007 and conveniently located close to the junction of Long Road and Trumpington Road to the south side of the city. Apartment 12 was originally designed as a 3 bed but is currently laid out as a large 2 bed, offering bright and well-proportioned accommodation of over 1100 sqft / 108 sqm.

There is a welcoming entrance hall, finished with attractive laminate wood flooring which continues through to the main reception room. The former bedroom now serves as a dining area and adjoins a light and airy kitchen / living room which benefits from a triple aspect and doors to a south-west facing wrap-around balcony. The kitchen has been fitted with a stylish range of units; integrated appliances include a fridge/freezer, dishwasher, oven, microwave and induction hob with extractor over. There is also a useful pantry cupboard. There are 2 double bedrooms, the master bedroom is particularly spacious and includes an en suite bathroom. A door from the main bedroom leads onto a west-facing covered roof terrace. A large store off from the main hall also gives access to this terrace, offering a good degree of privacy and well suited to alfresco dining in the warmer months. Completing the accommodation is a bathroom which couples as a utility area with space and plumbing for a washing machine.

Outside the property is set within immaculately kept communal gardens. Within the scheme, there is an allocated parking space in a covered bay and visitors parking bays. Each apartment also has its own self-contained storage unit for bikes.


The property is leasehold with a share of the freehold interest and there are approximately 984 years remaining on the lease with a service charge of £3713.46 per annum, paid half-yearly with no ground rent.


Long Road forms part of a popular residential area in a sought after south City location. It is well placed for access to local schools in both the state and independent sectors including The Perse, Hills Road & Long Road Sixth Form Colleges. Addenbrookes Hospital and the Biomedical Campus are close by. The railway station and M11 are easily accessible. The property is located at the Hills Road end of Long Road.
