A four-year-old house in the Cambridgeshire village of Milton has been chosen by television property star Sarah Beeny as her bargain property of the month.
The modern home is only 1.5 miles from the recently opened Cambridge North train station with direct services into London, making it ideal for commuters.
Its age means that this is a nearly new home, something that may appeal to buyers who want the advantage of a recently built house but without paying the premium that brand new properties sell for.
According to the most recent ONS house prices index, the average new build home sells for £282,885, while the average UK house price is £220,600. Its desirable location means this home is priced above those averages.
This end-of-terrace house in the Cambridgeshire village of Milton has been chosen by television property star Sarah Beeny as her bargain property of the month
It has a large living area with room for a dining table and chairs, two double bedrooms, off-street parking and a private garden.
Sarah said: ‘I’ve chosen this property due to its brilliant features and location. It is absolutely perfect for young professionals working in central Cambridge or London, and is beautifully designed and decorated, making it ready to move straight into.’
The end-of-terrace property is in the village of Milton, which is north of the city of Cambridge.
The outside of the property has a contemporary feel, with an on-trend grey front door and attractive hedges framing the path leading up to it.
There is a good-sized hallway with access to the downstairs toilet, followed by a living area with room for a dining table and a kitchen. It is decorated in neutral colours and has grey tiled flooring.
The generously sized dual aspect living area has laminate flooring and large French doors lead out to the garden. Along with four other sizeable windows, they allow an abundance of natural light to stream into the property.

She said: ‘This is such a great room – really expansive and light due to the sheer number of windows. It is a gorgeous space in which to host friends and family, and the large French doors mean it can become an extension of the outside in the warm summer months.
‘The feature wall is really striking too, giving the room an up-to-date, funky feel, which is complimented by the modern flooring.’
