This contemporary and expansive four-storey home is located in the private gated development of St Bartholomew's Court, Riverside. It occupies a westerly position within this desirable modern development which was completed in 2004. It is situated off Riverside next to the River Cam. With over 1800 sq ft (170 sq m) of living space, including four large double bedrooms, this well presented townhouse allows for a very comfortable and modern living space and would be ideal for families and professionals.

Heading up via a short set of steps you enter into the welcoming entrance hallway that leads to all upper ground floor rooms. There is plenty of storage for coats and shoes in two large cupboards, and a well-sized WC. There is a light and bright snug or study, which for larger families could be used as a further fifth bedroom or to double up as a guest bedroom. Also on this floor is the living room, and from here you access the newly landscaped private rear garden with separate rear gated access. 

On the lower ground floor there is a very generously-sized kitchen and breakfast room with access to the front courtyard. The appliances include an electric range cooker with gas hob, built-in dishwasher and free-standing fridge, along with plenty of storage cupboards and drawers and Quartz worktops. At the rear of the lower ground floor there is a dining room with access to an additional courtyard for alfresco dining and entertaining in the warmer months. Furthermore there is a sizeable utility and laundry room with ample storage, and separate sink; as well as an under-stairs storage cupboard.  

The first floor master bedroom has fitted wardrobes, Juliet balcony with views over the communal gardens, and an en-suite shower room which has been upgraded by the current owner. The second bedroom is also on the first floor and is currently being utilised as a large home office. With a south-west facing orientation, and two large windows, this room is wonderfully bright and airy.

On the top floor there are two further double bedrooms, and a family bathroom. There is also an airing cupboard housing the Megaflo pressurised hot water cylinder.

There are double-glazed Velfac aluminium composite windows and French doors throughout the property. 

This development has delightful, very well-maintained, communal grounds; and the residents hold regular community events. There is an allocated parking space, additional visitor parking spaces and undercover bike storage. Two electric car charging points are also due to be fitted on the estate imminently.

Riverside is a popular walking and cycling route for both leisure and access to the city centre. There is direct, traffic-free access to Cambridge North station, and Cambridge Business and Science parks, via Stourbridge Common and the Chisholm Trail Bridge. 

St. Bartholomew's Court is well located for supermarkets and retail on Newmarket Road; is close to The Engineer's House at the Museum of Technology for alfresco drinking and dining; and the Green Dragon pub. Open spaces can be found on Logan's Meadow and the historic Stourbridge Common, which also has a well-equipped playground. 

The property is situated within the catchment areas of both Parkside Academy secondary school and St Matthew's Primary School, both rated 'outstanding' by Ofsted.
