A freehold, one bedroom period house in a prime central street, carefully and comprehensively restored in the last 3 years and stylishly presented throughout.
City Road is an attractive, traditional Victorian street, positioned a short walk from the historic city centre and right on the doorstep of the shops, cafes and leisure facilities of East Road, Burleigh Street and The Grafton Centre. The house is at the south end of the street on a pedestrian and cycle only section with its balcony and front windows looking down tree-lined Brandon Place. For those looking to be right at the centre of what Cambridge has to offer, but away from the bustle of the busy thoroughfares it is a genuinely exceptional spot.
The house has been comprehensively refurbished in the last 3 years, including a new kitchen and bathroom, new gas central heating, new flooring and new bespoke sash windows. Care was also taken to ensure the underlying fabric of the property was sound including damp treatment and replastering.
It now presents stylishly throughout with a true warmth and elegance of character and represents excellent value for a period, freehold, city centre property, especially one so recently completely overhauled.
The ground floor is an open-plan living space with a fitted kitchen including appliances and bespoke storage and shelving either side of the former fireplace. On the first floor is a landing, full bathroom and double bedroom with French doors opening on to the balcony. The spiral stairwell is a particular feature, with a dramatic high-vaulted ceiling up to a skylight. There is also a loft space providing a good storage area.
On street parking is by residents’ permit.
