BEST AND FINAL OFFERS TO BE RECEIVED BY 12PM ON THURSDAY 5TH OF AUGUST Well proportioned detached Victorian property within unusually large grounds
3 Montague Road is a spectacular detached Victorian property which has been skillfully refurbished by the current owners for their own use. The property was constructed around 1900 of Cambridge brick elevations beneath a slate roof with mainly sash windows, including some attractive stained glass sashes. We are led to understand that the house was constructed as a laundry for one of the Cambridge Colleges.
3 Montague Road which currently extends to approximately 1,914 sq ft has had consent granted (Re: 20/4604/HFUL) for a substantial side and rear extension to increase bedroom and living accommodation along with creating a basement swimming pool, yoga/dance studio, work shop and plant room, which is likely to increase the accommodation to approximately 5,000 sq ft.
The property is set back from Montague Road, to the left is a walled off street gravelled driveway for two/three cars and accessed via automated sliding gates, with a delightful, private paved courtyard beyond. 3 Montague Road has two stain glassed entrance doors, both are canopied and lead to hallways with stripped wooden floors. The side entrance leading to a bay-fronted sitting room, and the front, to a through' kitchen/dining room and further sitting room. These rooms have been combined and have a dual aspect including a wide bay and door to the side courtyard. The kitchen has been fitted with long L' shaped working surfaces and has sage coloured cabinetry with integrated fridge, stainless steel oven and hob, washer/drier and slim-line dishwasher. A contemporary shower room has been fitted with wall hung WC, wash hand basin with cabinetry and mirrored wall.
There are three double bedrooms on the upper floors, the largest bedroom (formerly two bedrooms now combined), has a dual aspect with a wide bay to the side and fitted with painted hardboard floors and has a small kitchenette to the right. The other two bedrooms both have stripped wooden floors and the first floor bedroom has a wide bay window to the front. The second floor bedroom, accessed via stripped treads and painted staircase, has a dormer window and built-in wardrobe. A WC on the first floor completes the accommodation.
The property which has a Scandinavian' modern feel is painted white throughout and attracts a great deal of natural light through the wide sash windows. Many original features have been retained including moulded ceiling cornicing, panelled doors and has stripped wooden floors.
As previously mentioned, the property has consent for a substantial extension, specifically designed with the sellers own use in mind. Subject to any further consents being granted for any onward buyer, this is a fantastic opportunity to create a bespoke, substantial near central home in one of Cambridge's best districts.
The gardens and grounds are truly substantial and in total, extend to about 0.33 of an acre and link Montague Road and Sandy Lane. The grounds are overgrown and will need clearing and include some fine, specimen trees.

Probably one of the best houses I have seen in the city with fantastic potential to create a bespoke family home. All with almost one third of an acre of grounds so close to central Cambridge.Ed Meyer
