A renovated and extended five bedroom home in this sought-after part of Cambridge City
2 Stukeley Close is an original 1960s detached house which is nicely set back behind a gravel drive and has been extended in recent years.
The front door leads in to a large, welcoming hallway which all the downstairs room come off, creating a lovely circular feel to the house. The large L-shaped sitting room with original parquet flooring provides space for both a casual seating area as well as a more formal space around the fireplace.
The living room links to the open plan kitchen via a fully glazed extension which brings in lots of light, even in the depths of winter. The kitchen has cream cabinets with wood effect countertops and double glazed doors that lead out to a patio in the wide garden.
At the front of the house is a home office (which is currently set up as a gym) with a downstairs cloakroom adjacent.
The utility room, with space for washing machine and tumble drier leads out to the garage which was extended as part of the work carried out in 2014.
The wide garden is laid mainly to lawn with an Indian sandstone patio for outdoor dining and barbeques.
Upstairs are five bedrooms, four of which make good sized double rooms. The master bedroom, with views over the gardens, has fitted wardrobes and an en suite bathroom with shower over the bath. Bedroom four, at the front of the house, is a large room with vaulted ceilings and glazed doors that lead out on to a balcony. There is a further family bathroom with oversized, walk-in shower and separate bath which was newly fitted in 2014.

I love the sociable feel of this house - with all the downstairs rooms inter-linking and spilling out into the garden, it would be the perfect house for a drinks party.Ed Meyer
