An appealing Victorian home with 1100 sqft (102 sqm) of accommodation set over three levels. The property is set in an enviable location close to the city centre and station and has a south facing courtyard garden.
The property offers scope for improvement but has already been significantly extended to the rear and has a loft conversion providing a further bedroom and loft room.
The front door opens to the hallway, which leads past the kitchen, through to the dining room. The dining room is a spacious room with exposed floorboards, a fireplace and the staircase leading up to the first floor. The adjacent sitting room is well proportioned, with plenty of room for sofas and chairs and there is a roof light and double doors leading out to the lean to conservatory. The kitchen is to the front of the house and is fitted with a variety of floor and wall mounted cabinets and there is space for a fridge freezer, cooker and washing machine.
On the first floor the landing is spacious and opens to two bedrooms; a good size double overlooking the front and a smaller single overlooking the rear, both rooms have a cupboard and a pretty fireplace. On this level there is also a bathroom fitted with a bath, w.c and hand-basin.
On the top floor there is a further, generously proportioned double bedroom with a built in cupboard and a loft room with reduced head height.
Outside, there is a small courtyard garden which is south facing and partially paved. Historically there was a rear pedestrian access, which it may be possible to re-instate.
Edward Street is off St Matthew’s Street and is just a stone’s throw from Norfolk Street. The area has a quiet residential quality, yet is close to the historic city centre and is situated between East Road and Mill Road.
It is less than a mile away from Cambridge Central railway station and Mill Road, with its lovely cosmopolitan feel and its variety of independent shops and restaurants. The Grafton Centre is close-by and there is a Tesco supermarket, an out of town retail park and the Beehive Shopping Centre all within walking or cycling distance.
For schooling, it is within the catchment of St Matthew’s Primary School and secondary provision is at Parkside Community College, both of which are Ofsted rated as ‘Outstanding’.
