    About this property

    • 164 Chesterton Road is a well proportioned Edwardian semi-detached townhouse of red brick elevations with mainly original windows beneath a slate roof. The property extends to approximately 1,825 sq ft of traditionally laid out accommodation over three floors. Having been a rental property and used as a House of Multiple Occupation for at least a couple of decades the house would now benefit from a refurbishment program throughout which could also include a reconfiguration and extension program if required. There is a wide circular bay window to the front sitting room whilst the rear reception room has a French door to the rear and both have moulded ceiling cornicing, ornate fireplaces and tall ceilings. The kitchen /dining room were two rooms which are now combined and open plan. There is a small laundry area along with a bathroom beyond the kitchen.

      At first floor are three bedrooms including two large doubles and a family bathroom all of which are accessed via a wide landing. At second floor, there are three further rooms, including a large double and the two left hand rooms have sloping ceilings, one of which has been used as a kitchen and could be returned to an additional bedroom or used to create a further bathroom.

      To the front is block paving which provides off street parking for two cars. The rear garden is long, south facing and lawned. To the far end, beyond the lawn, the seller, several years ago constructed a former garage/workshop into a detached building which comprises two self contained apartments which have been used for rental income and front onto Sandy Lane.

      The ground and first floor units extend to around 500 and 725 sq ft respectively. Both comprise double bedroom, sitting room, bathroom or shower room and separate kitchen and are similarly styled, the ground floor has a courtyard. For those now working from home these could be used as home offices or a teenagers den/games/music or perhaps to house a dependent relative.

      The house and two rear dwellings form part of the same Title and are being sold as one package and cannot be sold separately.

      EPCs for both apartments can be provided upon request.

    I think this is a fabulous opportunity in a central Cambridge spot to create a wonderful family home with the benefit of an annexe or work from home space to the rear.
