Alpha Terrace is a traditional late Victorian / early Edwardian Cambridge street and is located off Trumpington High Street. At its far end, is the local primary school, Fawcett, making it a no-through-road to cars. Pedestrians and bicycles can happily cut through though, which gives excellent easy access to the guided bus cycleway and to Addenbrooke's.
The front door opens into the living room where the original sash windows with secondary glazing overlook the traditional street lined with Sunset Boulevard cherry trees while the original art nouveau fireplace with fitted shelves either side fill the room with character. Under the carpet is solid pine flooring which continues into the dining room. A window from the dining room overlooks the rear garden while a cupboard under the stairs provides useful storage.
The kitchen again has the original quarry tiled flooring and range of pine wall and base mounted units integrated gas oven 4 ring gas hob, modern combi boiler and marble worktop inset in pine while a side door provides access to the rear garden and conservatory. A sliding door to the rear of the kitchen opens to the bathroom which is fitted with a modern suite, including a bath with mixer taps and shower over.
Upstairs are three bedrooms all of which are fitted with the original sash windows with secondary glazing, and the pine flooring, currently covered by carpet. The principle bedroom is of particular note and benefits from a cast iron fireplace. The property has been historically extended into the loft where a large Velux window files the room with natural light providing an ideal work/study space.
A well presented, Victorian terrace property with separate living and dining rooms with a private rear garden, set in a highly desirable south city, no-through-road. The property is for sale with no onward chain.
Trumpington is a thriving, fast growing part of the city that still manages to retain its village identity and sense of community.
It is exceptionally well located for access into the Addenbrooke's campus, out to the M11 and into the city by car, bus, guided bus, one of a few purpose-built cycle routes, or even an enthusiastic walk. The city's mainline station can be easily reached along the guided busway cycleway without having to mix with car traffic at all.
The area has three primary schools and a brand new state-of-the-art secondary school built in 2016 with excellent sporting facilities. Many of the city's finest private schools are within easy cycling distance. There are also various restaurants, pubs, shops, a post office, barber, GP surgery, pharmacy, library and community centre. There is a major Waitrose supermarket and a Sainsbury's local.
Trumpington Meadows nature reserve links Trumpington through to Byron's Pool and Grantchester and there is a second country park between Trumpington and the Addenbrooke's campus. Various bridleways and footpaths lead immediately out into the countryside towards Harston, Haslingfield, Barton and Grantchester.
