An exceptionally lovely Victorian terrace a few minutes’ walk from the river. Renovated with style and attention to detail and with a pretty 30m / 100ft rear garden.
Stanley Road is fantastically well located, with the river at the bottom end of the road and the retail areas of Newmarket Road at the top with the historic city centre beyond. Given this central position it is relatively quiet, carrying little through traffic. Cycle and foot bridges give excellent access over the river to Chesterton and Cambridge North station.
The house has been comprehensively renovated by the current owners with a lot of style and particular attention to detail. Cosmetically there is a new kitchen, new bathroom, new flooring and decoration throughout and practically there are double glazed windows, including new wooden sash windows by Cambridge Classics, and a new central heating boiler and radiators. The EPC rating is a C/69, unusually high for a house of this type.
The ground floor has a sitting room at the front and a dining room in the middle opening to the kitchen behind. A covered side passage gives useful storage. The first floor has two independent bedrooms, including a cleverly arranged second bedroom with a mezzanine sleeping area and a wonderful bathroom.
There is a neat front garden with quarry-tiled pathway and a very lovely, landscaped rear garden with excellent privacy and a length of about 30m / 100ft. A pedestrian access passes behind the house and across the neighbours out to the front.
