A beautifully restored Victorian semi with four bedrooms, two bathrooms and a 38m / 125ft south-facing garden. Quietly positioned on a no-through-street to the south of the city.
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 on the guided bus cycleway and to Addenbrooke’s.
The house stands on the south side of the road giving it a long, sunny rear garden.
It has been carefully restored and updated by the current owners and enlarged by a fantastic loft conversion to now provide four well-proportioned bedrooms, a first floor bathroom and top floor en-suite shower room. The ground floor has two separate reception rooms, both with fireplaces, and a stylishly fitted kitchen / dining room that opens on to the rear garden.
The rear garden is about 125ft / 38m long. It faces south and has a timber bike shed, paved terrace, lawn areas and at the far end, a cedar wood-built detached office which is insulated with power, light and internet. There is a side pedestrian and bike access, shared with the neighbour, that passes under the house to the front.
Renovation works during the owners’ 11 years at the house include, updating the wiring, new plumbing and heating with a new gas boiler, restoration of the sash windows, replastering and new flooring throughout. The house is a beautiful example of its kind and there are only a few of these larger period houses on the street.
