About this property

  • 39 Warkworth Street is a substantial, mid-Victorian townhouse that has undergone a considerable cosmetic refurbishment programme by the current owners. Extending to approximately 2,200 sq ft and constructed of Cambridge brick elevations with mainly double glazed sash windows beneath a slate roof, the property is superbly presented, hugely characterful and retains many original Victorian features including marble fireplaces, sash windows all of which are double glazed), moulded ceiling cornicing and panelled internal doors.

    The property is approached via steps from Warkworth Street to a pretty panelled front door, beyond which is the hallway which has an elegant staircase. To the left the hall leads into a dual aspect double reception room with a marble fireplace and a wide bay sash window to the front, stripped wooden floorboards and built-in book shelving with outlooks to the rear garden. To the rear of the hall there is a cloakroom and steps leading out to the gardens with views and light through a fully glazed door.

    Stairs lead to the lower ground floor which can also be independently accessed from the street. There is a well-appointed kitchen with a comprehensive range of cabinetry and attractive granite work surfaces and a Smeg freestanding stainless steel six burner gas cooking stove. There is ample space for a kitchen table and chairs and a separate large seating or further dining area to the front with an impressive dual fuel stove. Furthermore there is a large walk-in pantry with space for an American style fridge and further storage/boot room and boot area, along with a utility room to the rear with a further sink, washer and tumble dryer.

    Upstairs at half landing level is a superb family bathroom with beautiful Ottoline wallpaper a freestanding enamelled bath and high end vintage style sanitary ware. At first floor is the fabulous principal bedroom suite which extends the full width of the property and has two tall sash windows to the front and to the rear a large en suite bathroom with Neptune twin basins inset to a marble counter, high level WC, oversized shower cubicle and freestanding cast iron bath. On the top floor are three further bedrooms, two of which are large doubles and a landing study area.

    The property which has great proportions is available with no onward chain and can be seen in great detail on the attached floorplans.

    The house is set slightly back from Warkworth Street with stone steps ascending and descending to upper and lower ground floors respectively and enclosed by wrought iron railings. The rear garden is south west facing, walled and has a paved seating area to capture the afternoon sun, a lawn surrounded by pretty shrubs and perennials and beyond a cobbled terrace with a useful shed.

    There is a resident's parking permit scheme in operation. Permits are readily available from Cambridge County Council.

I really like the great proportions, tall ceilings and fabulous kitchen, so so close to all that Cambridge has to offer
