High Street, Cottenham

£390,000 Guide Price

This semi-detached home forms part of an historic house within the high street and has spacious accommodation over three floors. Period features include exposed chimney breasts and stripped pine floors. For sale with no onward chain.

This impressive three-storey, three-bedroom townhouse was formerly part of the Alexandra Temperance Hotel & Coffee Shop. The Victorian temperance movement offered the working classes a place of relaxation, free of alcohol; particularly pertinent given the plethora of public houses at that time.

After opening in 1881, the house also allegedly survived two fires – one in 1897, and once again in 1914. Blackened brickwork can still be seen on the third floor chimney breast.

The property is accessed via the gravel path and gate to the side and entered via the kitchen into an open plan dining space. The kitchen has been refitted with a range of modern white units with ample work surfaces, integrated and spaces for additional appliances. The dining space has a chimney breast, which may be reopened subject to further investigation with the stairs rising to the first floor. The sitting room is located at the front of the property with high ceilings, stripped pine floors and exposed brick chimney breast and a sash style window to the front aspect.

The first floor landing with stairs rising to the second floor leads to; a double bedroom again with stripped pine floors and sash style window to the front aspect and chimney breast; and the family bathroom with modern white four-piece suite comprising a low level WC, pedestal wash hand basin, panelled bath and a separate shower cubicle.

The second floor landing provides access to a further good sized double bedroom again with stripped wooden floors and enjoying the view to the front over the roof tops and the third bedroom/study to the rear aspect.

Outside, the property has a rear courtyard style garden with good sized patio area, plant and shrub borders, timber shed, fully enclosed offering a large degree of privacy.
