Maids Causeway, Cambridge

Four houses on Cambridge's "Millionaire's Row", Maids Causeway, sold for more than £1 million. That's more than any other street in Cambridgeshire. The Causeway might not immediately spring to mind as the most sought after street with so many opulent settings to choose from in the city. Still, it does benefit from both relaxing green space with nearby Midsummer Common and the convenience of shops at The Grafton centre.

These homeowners can also say they are neighbours with the two Michelin Star restaurant Midsummer House. Another popular nearby spot to eat is the award-winning Indian restaurant Navadhanya.
