About this property

  • 46 St Andrews Road is situated on the south side of the road backing onto the Cambridge Bowls Club constructed of insulated Cambridge brick elevations with double glazed sash windows, a tall double bay window beneath a tiled roof and underfloor heating beneath.

    The property which was surprisingly built in 1922 has many features of a late Victorian or Edwardian house with well-proportioned accommodation extending to 1,295 sq ft. In addition to the superb main house there is an exceptional outbuilding, which was awarded the Cambridge Design and Construction prize of “Small building of the year” in 2017.

    The previous owners undertook a considerable refurbishment and re-modelling program to create an exceptional family house which included underfloor heating throughout to which the current owners have made further cosmetic improvements.

    The house is approached along a re-laid path of Victoriana style tiles with reclaimed rope top edging behind a re-built front wall which leads to a beautiful bespoke front door with in-laid stained glass. On entering, the stripped wood floor hall leads to a front reception room with a working fireplace with wooden mantel piece and attractive tile surround. There is a further drawing room with parquet flooring and French doors which lead to a rear terrace and also has the benefit of a wood burner.

    To the rear is a large kitchen breakfast room with bespoke wooden cabinetry, plumbing for a washing machine and dishwasher, corner unit with 5 ring Rangemaster oven and bespoke hand built window seat. This lovely room with tiled black and white flooring has plenty of room for a large kitchen/dining table and access to the rear terrace and garden beyond through a side door or rear French doors. A cloakroom under the stairs completes the ground floor accommodation.

    Upstairs there are three well-proportioned double bedrooms. The master is the full width of the property and has built-in shelving and a wide bay sash window to the front. The master bedroom also has a cast iron fireplace as does the rear bedroom. The bathroom has been re-fitted with a contemporary walk-in shower and a Victoria & Albert freestanding bath and matching basin.

    Outside, a terrace leads via steps to a mainly lawned garden and the award-winning outbuilding which is known as “The Garage”. This is a truly incredible building separated into two halves along its length. At one end is a fully glazed vaulted space overlooking the garden and a “pod” with built-in kitchenette, shower room and cleverly designed slide out stairs which maximise the floor space and leads up to a mezzanine sleeping platform. To the rear, backing onto Mariners Way, is the double garage/workshop space.

This house feels bright and modern, but with the benefit of having all the character of an older home. I absolutely love the sunken garden leading down to the most innovative annexe I've ever seen.
