About this property

  • Achray is an attractive Victorian villa set at the end of this private, no through road - originally the first to be built on this road by the then Cambridge Planning Officer in 1889. The impressive house extends to approximately 1,702 sq ft comprising of three receptions, kitchen and utility room to the ground floor and four bedrooms, study and family bathroom to the first floor. The house retains original features including double-hung sash windows, intricate ceiling roses and moulded cornicing but would benefit from an extension and renovation programme (subject to planning) with the potential to create a magnificent family home.

    The grounds extend to about 0.62 of an acre to the south and east of the main house. Outline planning permission was granted in June 2019 (ref 19/0896/OUT) for the construction of two detached dwellings extending to approximately 2,350 sq ft each at the end of the garden. Further details are available from the selling agent.

I couldn't believe it when I approached this house and saw the size of the garden. This would make an excellent development opportunity in the heart of this lovely area or an incredible family home.
