A superbly designed four double-bedroom end-terrace townhouse, with a south-facing garden and roof terrace. Peacefully positioned on an architectural award-winning development off Addenbrooke’s Road.
Chaplen Street is part of the Abode development built by Countryside Properties and designed by Proctor and Matthews Architects. Its mix of striking architecture, carefully considered design and practical, contemporary living helped the development and architect to win the Royal Institute of British Architects’ East Building of the Year Award 2015.
The properties on the development are characterised by their bold, geometric architecture and wonderfully light interiors.
The house stands at the end of a terrace of townhouses, with its garden and roof terrace facing south-east. The ground floor has a car and bike port, accessed by a remote-controlled gate that gives covered access into the hall, where there is a cloakroom, boot / store room and a lovely kitchen / dining room with integrated appliances, stone worksurfaces, a utility cupboard and large glazing on to the rear garden. The first floor has the main sitting room, bathroom and two bedrooms, plus the roof terrace which can be accessed from the landing or sitting room. On the top floor is the master bedroom with en-suite and the fourth bedroom.
The garden is stylishly landscaped for ease of maintenance and includes a large bike and bin store.
The house is designed to be very energy efficient and includes high-specification double glazing, gas central heating and a mechanical ventilation and heat recovery system.
