About this property

  • 10 Merton Street is an inner terrace property of painted brick elevations with mainly sash windows beneath a tiled roof.

    The property extends to 889 sq ft with accommodation laid out over ground and first floors. Accessed via an entrance hallway there are two large reception rooms, the rear reception room has access to a walk in larder/store along with stairs to the first floor.

    There is a small modern fitted kitchen with laminate work surfaces and adjacent is a lean-to and WC, this space could be refurbished to combine with the kitchen, to create a much larger eat-in kitchen/breakfast room if required.

    The garden is mainly enclosed and laid mostly to lawn with deep flower beds. There is a side pedestrian access that runs across the rear of the neighbouring properties (numbers 12 and 14). A wood panel boundary fence between this property and number 12 will shortly be installed.

    10 Merton Street has a gas fired central heating system in situ and can be seen in greater detail on the attached floor plans and might well suit those looking to downsize or those looking for a cottage within a highly desirable location within Cambridge.
