Courtyards which is situated just off Whittlesford Road, is an ingenious scheme of luxurious top quality homes of considerable picturesque appeal cleverly designed around a number of courts, which enjoys the serene atmosphere and intimate scale found in the "Courts" of the Cambridge Colleges. Each house is skilfully orientated to give maximum privacy with fine views over their gardens and landscaped communal areas which are generously endowed with a wealth of ornamental trees, bushes, cobbles and open lawned areas. Courtyards occupies the loveliest of settings situated in the south side of a small wood adjacent to the Cam which runs between Great and Little Shelford before reaching the famous Grantchester Meadows. The houses are set away from the road around communal green areas, which are jointly owned by all of the residents.

No.26 was built in the early 1960s and measures approximately 1500 sq ft. The ground floor comprises an entrance hall, which has a large cupboard under the stairs. The kitchen has a range of base and eye-level storage cupboards and drawers, integrated sink with mixer tap, integrated double oven and space for white goods. The dual aspect sitting/dining room is of a good size, with a patio door opening on to the rear. In the sitting room there is a feature fireplace. The dining room has large windows with views to the side aspect, there is also a door which opens onto a courtyard garden. The study measures 8' x 7'4" with views to the side aspect. Completing the ground floor is a spacious cloakroom.

The first floor comprises a galleried landing with airing cupboard and four bedrooms, three of which are doubles and there are built-in wardrobes to bedrooms one and three. The bathroom has a double walk in shower, low level WC, wash basin and window to the front aspect.

Outside, the property is set back from the road with views over green space. To the rear, the enclosed garden is laid predominantly to lawn, with well stocked mature borders, established trees, hedging and open views to the rear over fields. There is a single garage in a nearby block with an up-and-over door.

Little Shelford is largely a conservation area and as such enjoys the distinction of being one of the county's most sought after villages. It lies 5 miles south of Cambridge and is surrounded by some of the best countryside in the area over which there are many walks. Some facilities are available in the village including a bus service and the Parish Church is close by. However the main shopping centre of Woollards Lane in Great Shelford is about a mile away where there is a primary School, library, pharmacy, health centre, recreation ground and numerous shops. Great Shelford mainline station is also nearby and Junction 11 of the M11 is within a few minutes drive. Addenbrooke's hospital is also within easy reach.
