The kitchen has timber worktops; a tiled floor; spaces for both a washing machine and under-counter fridge; gas hob; electric oven and extractor hood. The well-sized bathroom is situated at the rear of the property. 

Upstairs there are two well-proportioned double bedrooms, both with built-in wardrobes. The front bedroom has an original fireplace. Externally there is a courtyard with side access reached via a shared passageway as well as an outbuilding for useful storage and further small courtyard behind this. There is a Vaillant combi boiler for heating and hot water.  There is access to the loft. 

Newnham is a picturesque and highly sought after residential area located in the south-west of Cambridge, which is popular with families, academics and professionals. It is known for its beautiful architecture, green spaces, and riverside walks, and is located within easy reach of Cambridge city centre. Newnham has a good range of local amenities, including independent shops, cafés, and restaurants.

The local primary is the very highly regarded Newnham Croft Primary School. You are surrounded by several green spaces, including Lammas Land, Paradise Nature Reserve, and Coe Fen. These areas are perfect for leisurely walks, picnics, or sports activities. 

Adding to its charm, 6 Derby Street was once Newnham's local Post Office in the early 1900s and is situated next to Cambridge's oldest bakery, which is now the delightful Maison Clement artisan bakery and patisserie.
