    About this property

    • Petersham House is one of two larger book-end properties on this terrace of townhouses just to the south of the historic core of Cambridge. The property, which is arranged over four floors and dates back to the late 1800s, has not only the benefit of numerous Victorian features including an oak handcrafted staircase, Gothic style wooden framed windows and original fireplaces throughout, but also a south facing courtyard garden and garage providing off street parking.

      The striking property is entered on St Eligius Street through a set of stone steps leading to a panelled and stained glass inlay front door. The property opens up into an attractive hallway with high ceilings and stripped wood floors. To the right is an exceptional drawing room with a bay window with high ecclesiastical style frames providing an abundance of natural light, picture rails, intricate cornicing, ceiling rose and an attractive fireplace with marble surround. To the left is a well-appointed reception room which has been used previously as a dining room and could be used as a study.

      To the lower ground floor there is a kitchen with access out to the rear garden, large utility room and a family breakfast room with an attractive Inglenook fireplace and parquet flooring. Please note that there is a bressummer hood in the Inglenook.

      To the first floor there are two well proportioned bedrooms, a large family bathroom with a corner bath and twin sinks, and a WC. On the second floor there are two further bedrooms and a large bathroom with a bath and an overhead shower.

      Outside, the mature private terrace garden is laid mainly to York stone with deep beds and mature shrubs bordered by original stone walls. In the summer, the pergola is adorned with wisteria and climbing roses offering attractive protection from the sun. The property is offered with no upward chain.

    This is a true gem of a house. With a vast array of unique Victorian details that I haven't seen in my 20 years as an agent. The ceiling height on every floor is incredible and only the views over the city from the top floor are more impressive.
