Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6

A truly exceptional property and probably one of the few on airbnb that has it's own wikipedia page. This first floor apartment forms part of a Grade II listed historic building which dates from the early 17th century. In addition to the period features, the apartment has been completey refurbished to a high standard with all modern utilities.

This 142 square metre (1529 square feet) apartment consists of two huge bedrooms, a large reception room and 30 square metre kitchen/diner with fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and gas oven/hob.

Wi-fi is included. There is also off-street parking with the flat and communal gardens.

The apartment is a short walk away from the beautiful River Cam, 10 mins from the University district and a short-bus ride from the centre of Cambridge.

From the wikipedia page:

"The house was built by the Hobsons: the younger, Thomas Hobson lived at Chesterton Hall in 1627, four years prior to his death in 1631.[4] Build of red brick, the original main south front has two storeys and three bays, with mullioned and transomed windows, including a central oriel, all their stone dressings being renewed, and above them round-gabled dormers. A north wing behind has an octagonal north-west stair tower. The house was considerably remodelled in the mid 19th century, probably by T.H. Naylor,[5] to provide a more ornate front to the west, including a new porch and another rectangular stair tower north of the back wing. It was further enlarged after 1900".
