Plenty of new-build flats on the market, but none are a patch in this 1950s grade II-listed Highsett apartment in Cambridge, Cambridgeshire.

This is one of 37 apartments that were built in the late 1950s, getting grade II status back in 1998. It's modernism of the era and still incredibly stylish and practical today. It's also quite conveniently located too, within walking distance of the city centre and the train station. That's if you need to be in Cambridge obviously.


This particular apartment has been updated, including windows, a new bathroom, laminate wood flooring and Celotex insulation, but overall, it is still very much faithful to the original design- a design that also offers access to the central square and communal gardens.


There is 742 square ft. of internal accommodation, including a reception lobby with recessed area with coat hooks, doorway opening to the kitchen, along with a sitting room that extends into the dining area. There's also an inner hallway with built in cupboards, two bedrooms and a bathroom. A private store cupboard is adjacent to the apartment.

If you want to own it, you'll need to offer around £315,000 to secure it.
