A stylishly extended house with an unusually generous landscaped garden set at the end of a close off Milton Road.
The house is pleasantly tucked-away in a quiet cul-de-sac and occupies a particularly good size plot for a house of its type, with a lovely garden that has been very carefully landscaped by the current owner with planted borders, a vegetable garden and a bike store. There is also a driveway for one car right by the front door.
It was built as a one bedroom house with a fully insulated, decorated and carpeted loft with rooflight windows, now accessed by a piano-key staircase.
It has recently been enlarged by a superb extension to the living space with a vaulted ceiling, folding doors on to the garden and lots of glazing. It also includes a contemporary wood-burning stove and wood flooring.
Whilst not strictly a two bedroom house, its new ground floor extension and the loft space give it far more space than might be expected of a one bedroom house and this combined with the lovely garden give it a unique appeal for the area.
The Milton Road area is very popular for those looking to be within easy reach of the city centre and north-city facilities. It has its own excellent local shopping area including a Co-Op supermarket with two large Tesco superstores nearby, off Newmarket Road or in Milton village.
Cambridge North train station is less than 1.5 miles away with services into London King’s Cross. The river is about a mile’s walk through old Chesterton with the neighbouring open spaces of Stourbridge and Midsummer Commons.
Nearby primary schools include The Grove and Milton Road and the Ofsted Outstanding Chesterton Community College for 11-16 year olds is less than 1.5 miles away.
