Well proportioned Victorian property with potential to improve and extend within sought after De Freville location.
5 Humberstone Road is an inner terraced property constructed around 1900 of Cambridge brick and sash windows beneath a tiled roof. The property, which extends to approximately 1,658 sq ft with flexible family accommodation laid out over three floors is set back from Humberstone Road beyond a walled shallow frontage.
The house, which retains many original features including pine panelled doors, moulded ceiling cornicing and picture rails has had recently installed double glazed timber sash windows to the front elevation. There is a wide bay fronted sitting room with cast iron fireplace which extends' into the rear dining room, whilst beyond is a small snug/TV room along with an extended, dual aspect kitchen/breakfast room with a range of wooden fronted cabinetry, breakfast bar and sliding glazed doors to the rear.
There is larger accommodation at upper levels, which includes three large double bedrooms and a loft bedroom/study, as the property extends over a side shared passage, the front bedroom also has a walk-in dressing room with wall to wall wardrobes. The sellers have submitted an application for an extension to create a larger kitchen/breakfast/family space along with some reconfiguration at ground floor along with raising the roof heights so as to create a much larger bedroom suite at second floor, which might be of great interest to purchasers. These proposed plans can be seen via the seller's agents or when viewing the property internally. It is felt that the property could now benefit from some improvements.
The long rear garden is enclosed and laid mostly to lawn, there are a wide variety of mature shrubs and planting including a pear tree, timber summer house and a large timber garden/cycle shed. Adjacent to the rear of the house is a paved terrace which continues to the side and to the shared access with the neighbour at number 3.
There is a resident's permit parking scheme in operation, permits can be obtained on application from Cambridge County Council for modest annual cost.
