    About this property

    • Located in a charming Conservation Area, 12 Portugal Place is a mid-terraced property dating from the early 1800s of painted brick elevations with sash windows beneath a slate roof. The property, which is accessed via Yorkstone steps to the hallway, has appealing, characterful and flexible accommodation laid out over four floors.

      Of particular note is the drawing room at upper ground floor which has a beautiful cast iron fireplace and moulded cornicing. To the rear is a well-appointed third bedroom which could also be used as a study, if required.

      On the lower ground floor there is a dining room, with sash window to the front which connects to a fitted kitchen with modern shaker cabinetry, along with integrated oven and induction hob. A cloakroom and utility cupboard completes the accommodation on this floor.

      At first floor is a large double bedroom which extends the full width of the house with a pretty bay window overlooking Portugal Place. The bedroom has an en suite bathroom with white sanitary ware and stainless steel fittings which also has a separate door on to the hall.

      The second floor which benefits from plenty of natural light has a bedroom and further bathroom.

      Of particular note is the walled rear garden which comprises a paved courtyard with raised flower and shrub borders. This particularly pleasant south and west facing courtyard also has a locked brick-built cycle/potting/tool shed with access beyond to a side passage connecting with Portugal Place.

      There is a resident's parking permit scheme in operation.

    This is the epitome of Cambridge City living; quirky, attractive, and in the heart of everything - there is even a cool bike shed.
