About this property

  • 9 Melbourne Place is an inner terrace Grade II listed property constructed during the early 1800s of Cambridge white brick elevations with small pane sash windows beneath a slate roof.

    The property extends to approximately 1,060 sq ft with accommodation laid out over three floors. Set back from pedestrianised Melbourne Place beyond an ornamental garden with an attractive magnolia tree, the property is accessed via an entrance hallway with dual aspect (formerly two rooms now combined) sitting room with deep brick fireplace (concealed but could potentially be opened) and fire surround.

    To the rear of the property is a bathroom, fitted with white sanitaryware, and from the hallway are stairs descending to the dining/family room and kitchen. The former has a fireplace (concealed) along with access to a wine/storage cellar with barrelled ceiling situated underneath the entrance steps whilst to the rear is the kitchen which has wooden fronted units and spaces for the usual appliances. At first floor are two bedrooms, the front bedroom extends the full width of the house and has stripped wooden floorboards.

    There is a gas fired central heating system in situ and the accommodation retains some original features including ceiling corning and panelled doors.

    The rear garden is walled and has been designed with low maintenance in mind with a central brick paved terrace and the remainder laid with ornamental stone. There is also a double width garage with automatic shuttered door and pedestrian door, beyond there is a slim forecourt adjacent to the front of the garage which could provide additional occasional off street parking for a small car.

    The property can be seen in greater detail on the attached floorplans, and is available with no onward chain and could benefit from some upgrading.

Fabulous location, it really does not get much better. The city is practically on the doorstep, and with a double width garage too!
