Spacious bright house
About Our Home
We moved into this spacious and light family home in Cambridge in July 2014. It is semi detached house in a quiet residential street in Cambridge, within walking distance of the historic and beautiful city centre. The house is south facing and full of sunshine all day with a beautiful indoor swimming pool and an open plan with plenty of space for our 2 children to run around. We have four bedrooms, and the property has all the modern features which make a home comfortable, pleasant, and easy to live in. The bedrooms are on the first floor: 2 of them have got king/double beds, the third bedroom has got a single bed and the fourth a cot bed. We have a spare double mattress and a double futon that easily fit in bedrooms 3 and 4. Downstairs is very roomy, and well-equipped. There is an open plan kitchen/dining/TV area in the original part of the house. A separate beautiful bright room is used as our living room with comfy sofas, wood-burning stove, children toys. One of the sofa can be converted in a small double bed. This room opens on an indoor swimming pool where we maintained the water at 28 degrees. Outside, the pretty south facing garden offers a great deal of privacy where you can enjoys BBQs and sunbathing. Cambridge is an ancient city packed with history and beautiful architecture. It is such a great city especially for families. There is always something to experience, from the Museums, to the Botanic Gardens and College Gardens, to taking long walks along the river. The town is ideally suited for walking and cycling and has a wonderful public transportation system. Our children love being able to walk to the local shops and parks. We are spoiled by the endless supply of pubs and diverse restaurants (Thai, Chinese, Indian, Vietnamese, Italian, French and even English…) as well as theatre and music offerings. It is a beautiful place to be in the summer where there is always something one from music to food festival or rowing competition. The train takes you into the heart of London in 40 minutes, and we are 30 mins from Stansted airport where you can get cheap flights to anywhere in Europe. Just 1h30 away, you find typical sea side resorts and nature reserves which are well worth a day visit.
