A rather special Victorian bay-fronted house with a west-facing garden. The property enjoys a quiet, near central city position in the heart of De Freville, a short walk from the River Cam and Midsummer Common.
This delightful bay-fronted Victorian house has been in current ownership for over 10 years and has undergone many improvement works within this time. Additions to the property include a refitted en suite, utility room side extension and a stunning kitchen / breakfast room by Cambridge Kitchens and Bathrooms.
The entrance hall has a striking stained glass door and fan light, plenty of understair storage and stairs leading to the first floor. There is a spacious bay-fronted sitting / dining room, finished with original wood flooring and a feature fireplace with attractive tiled inserts. The kitchen / breakfast room has been fitted with a comprehensive range of units and includes various integrated appliances. The room benefits from a dual aspect and is underfloor heated throughout. The dining area has Velux windows and bi-folding doors to the private rear garden. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a separate utility room with further fitted units, space and plumbing for additional appliances and access to a cloakroom W.C.
Upstairs, the bedrooms are split over 2 floors, the first of which houses the bathroom and 3 double bedrooms. Bedroom 1 is particularly spacious, has a built-in cupboard and bay-window. The final bedroom is located on the second floor and includes contemporary fitted wardrobes and an en suite shower room. There is additional eaves storage in the bedroom and landing area.
The property is set back behind a walled front garden, which is predominantly slate shingled with stocked beds and a quarry tiled pathway to the entrance. The west-facing rear garden extends over 60ft (19m) and is a peaceful oasis, predominantly laid to lawn and stocked with a mature array of plants, shrubs and trees including a crab apple. There is a vegetable patch and storage shed at the foot of the garden and secure gate leading to a shared pathway to the rear, only accessible for the neighbouring terraced houses.
Permit parking is available on Kimberley Road and immediate areas.
Kimberley Road is situated within the popular De Freville area of Cambridge, a predominantly late Victorian near central area of the city between the river Cam and Chesterton Road.

There are well regarded pubs and restaurants in the vicinity, which include the Fort St George, Restaurant 22, Michelin starred Midsummer House and a popular live music/comedy venue at The Portland Arms.
Kimberley Road is just over 2 miles from Cambridge station where London King’s Cross can be reached in 50 minutes and Cambridge North station is around 2.4 miles away.
