About this property

TENURE: Leasehold

The property is located in a pleasant setting in one of Cambridgeshire's most desirable villages. Great Shelford is only just outside the city's southern boundary some four miles from the centre of town and the nearby railway station only a few minutes walk away gives very good access to London. There are also useful local village amenities and facilities. This is a sheltered housing scheme originally owned and developed by the local authority in the late 1970's. A number of the flats are owned on an equity share basis with the local authority retaining 25% ownership but no rent is charged for this.

The property itself is a ground floor flat which overlooks gardens to the rear. The entrance hallway gives you access to all the accommodation along with two generous storage areas. The good sized lounge overlooks the internal courtyard and leads in to the kitchen which benefits from wall and floor units, sink and space for a single oven. There is a double bedroom again looking on to the internal courtyard. The bathroom completes the flat and comprises of a panelled bath, low-level WC and wash basin.

The site includes attractive gardens, a range of communal facilities and access to 24 hour emergency help with pull cords throughout the flat. Occupation is restricted to persons over 60 who are required to be capable of independent living. Many communal activities are organised for the residents, both on and off the complex. There is a special guest room which can be booked for visitors and free washing/drying facilities are provided in the community centre.

The property is held on a long equity share lease at a ground rent of 26 per annum. There is a contribution towards the cost of buildings insurance of 4.81 per quarter and a current service charge for maintenance and common facilities which is currently 15.41 per week. There is a 24 hour alarm service available which is optional, if an alarm is required it costs 39 per quarter and is connected to the phone line.

Great Shelford is just 4 miles south of Cambridge. There is an active village community centre around Woollards Lane where there is a library, dentist, village hall and recreation ground, numerous shops including newsagent, hairdresser, beauty salon, baker, butcher, grocer, marvellous deli and the Health Centre in Ashen Green. The mainline station provides access to Cambridge and London Liverpool Street, and the village is located two miles from Junction 11 of the M11. There is a Church of England Infant and Junior School in the village. The Gog Magog Hills and Golf Club, Wandlebury and the Roman Road are within two miles.
