An extended, comfortably elegant townhouse with a south-facing garden, detached studio and parking space, standing in a no-through-road opposite Homerton College.
The house is on the south side of the street, giving it a sunny rear garden and the very rare benefit of a parking space, accessed by a private road at the rear.
It has been carefully restored and enhanced by the current owner with particular style and attention to period detail. There are sash windows, wonderful fireplaces, moulded cornices and elegant, tall ceilings. The kitchen has been enlarged and refitted with joiner-built hardwood cabinets and stone worksurfaces. Bi-folding doors open on to a lovely, professionally landscaped rear garden of about 24m / 75ft in depth. At the far end is a home office / studio annex which is fully insulated with a shower room and WC and gives ideal work-from-home space.
On the first floor there are three double bedrooms and a bathroom and on the top floor a fourth double bedroom, with views across rooftops and to the Gog Magog hills in the distance, and a newly fitted shower room.
Rathmore Road is an enormously popular, hugely convenient Victorian no-through-street off Hills Road, right opposite Homerton College. It is very little used by traffic other than its residents making it surprisingly peaceful for something so well-located.
It is ideally located for The Perse and various other private schools and for Hills Road Sixth Form College which is within a few hundred meters.
The Cambridge Leisure complex is less than 10 minutes’ walk away and the excellent local shops of Cherry Hinton Road are equally nearby.
The city’s main railway station is less than a mile north, walkable in 15 minutes or so and the Addenbrooke’s campus is the same distance south.
