About this property

  • An attractive bay-fronted Edwardian home with a west-facing garden and planning permission for a loft conversion is ideally situated in the much sought after Newnham village.

    Dating back to 1906, the house exudes the timeless elegance of its time with several period features tastefully preserved. It has also been thoughtfully designed to offer open-plan modern living spaces.

    Upon entering through the solid timber door with a fanlight above, you step into an inviting entrance hall. From here, a staircase leads to the first floor, and the hall provides access to the various reception areas as well as an understairs cloakroom. The delightful bay-fronted living room boasts an ornamental fireplace, built-in shelving, and an adjoining dining room with French doors that open to the secluded rear garden. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a bright kitchen/breakfast room, benefiting from a dual aspect. The kitchen features a modern range of fitted base and eye-level units, an oven and hob, and ample space for additional appliances. Double doors from the breakfast room lead out to the private west-facing garden.

    Ascending to the first floor, you will find three generously proportioned bedrooms. The principal bedroom stands out for its spaciousness and is enhanced by built-in wardrobes and an en suite shower room. The remaining bedrooms offer comfortable living spaces, and the family bathroom has been tastefully fitted with a modern white suite, including a shower over the bath.

    Externally, permit parking is available. The property boasts a small front garden adorned with mature shrubs, and a paved path leads to the main entrance. The private west-facing garden presents a raised terrace, ideal for al fresco dining and entertaining. Steps lead down to the rest of the garden, which features low-maintenance shingled areas, mature landscaping, and a storage shed located at the foot of the garden. A rear pedestrian access provides a convenient route back to the front of the property and nearby Grantchester Meadows.
