This contemporary three storey modern townhouse is located in Chesterton, Cambridge; on the prestigious 'Vie' development built by Redeham Homes in 2007. It is well set back in a quiet and traffic-free position. 

With an open-plan kitchen/dining room, a separate living room, two double bedrooms and a further single bedroom, two bathrooms and an additional ground floor WC and utility room, this home has plenty of space for comfortable and modern living. 

On the ground floor is the large open-plan kitchen and dining room that leads out to the private courtyard garden via a patio door, which is the ideal space for outdoor entertaining. For bright and sunny days there is an awning that spans the breadth of the patio door and window. From the hallway there is a separate WC and utility space, modified by the current owners. 

The first floor has a welcoming living room with a full-height glazed window and door that leads onto a balcony with glass balustrade. The living room could be repurposed as an additional fourth bedroom if required. There is also a single bedroom, which the current owners have configured as a home-office. The full-height window allows plenty of natural light to flood the room whilst avoiding intense summer sun due to its north-easterly orientation. Externally this bedroom overlooks the mature trees outside the front of the property. The first floor also has a family bathroom; and an airing cupboard which houses the boiler.

On the top floor there are two large double bedrooms and an additional family shower room that the current owners have cleverly repurposed space to install, and has been fitted to a very high standard. There is also access to the loft space. 

At the front of the property there is a shrub bed together with two brick built store rooms for additional storage. The property has an allocated parking space to the rear; and there are bicycle stands alongside the shared access path. 

The south-west orientation of this townhouse maximises natural sunlight and helps keep heating costs low. There is a Nest smart thermostat for intelligent heating control. 

Scholars Walk is located next to the River Cam and adjacent to Logan's Meadow Local Nature Reserve, popular with dog walkers and close to the historic Stourbridge Common, which also has a well-equipped playground. Both the city centre and Cambridge Science and Business Parks can be reached by foot or bike on a predominantly traffic-free route alongside the river Cam. For those commuting by train, Cambridge North Station is just over a mile away.

Located close to Chesterton High Street, Scholars Walk is very well located for local amenities, including the popular Barbarella café; The Haymakers pub; Chesterton Post Office; local takeaways and convenience stores. There is easy access across the river via Riverside bridge to a wide selection of supermarkets and shopping situated along Newmarket Road. The renowned Cantabrigian Rowing club is less than a minute's walk and boasts a 24/7 gym overlooking the river Cam.

This modern and contemporary home would be ideal for families, professionals, couples or single dwellers and investors.
