A wonderfully light and well-proportioned, and exceptionally well-presented, two bedroom 1960s home situated in a quiet traffic-free residential area. Gainsborough Close is located to the north-east of the city centre and a short walk from Cambridge North station; the science and business parks. 

As you enter the property there is an entrance porch with storage for coats and footwear. The open-plan living area is a smart, bright and contemporary space that has been fitted with wood effect flooring. The modern u-shaped kitchen is well equipped with an electric hob, electric oven, full-size built-in dishwasher, and space for both a fridge freezer and washing machine. There are plenty of base and wall units for ample storage, a smart granite worktop, and the units wrap around to form a peninsula creating an ideal space for cooking, dining and entertaining.

Accessible from the kitchen and dining area, is the private rear garden which also has separated gated access from the rear, ideal for buggies, bikes or bins. The delightful garden was recently landscaped with a well-maintained lawn and stone-paved patio positioned to take advantage of the evening sun. 

Open tread stairs lead up to two well-proportioned double bedrooms, with the primary bedroom being particularly spacious. Both bedrooms have built-in wardrobes and engineered oak wood flooring. From the first floor landing there is a good-sized family bathroom; storage cupboard and access to the loft space.

To the front of the property is a gravel and part paved front garden with mostly gravel, with a Sheffield stand for external bike parking. 

A new gas combi boiler and heating system was installed in 2020. In the same year the complete roof was replaced with new felt, battens and tiles. The property also comes with a separate garage. 

The property is very well located for Cambridge Science Park, Cambridge Business Park and Cambridge North Station; destinations away from Cambridge via the A14; as well as easy access to Cambridge City Centre itself.
