About this property

  • No 2 is a period style property with Cambridge pale brick elevations, double hung sash windows in painted wood under a slated roof. Internally the accommodation is well laid out and is in good condition but would benefit from a degree of updating to kitchen and bathroom facilities.

    The main sitting room has a gas flame effect open fireplace with Adam style painted surround and double doors which lead through into a “snug” sitting room. This connects to the large conservatory which has twin air conditioning units, fitted blinds and French doors to the garden. The kitchen has a range of limed oak fronted units under formica work surfaces and a number of integrated Neff appliances. A breakfast room is adjacent and a separate utility room which houses the gas fired central heating boiler and has built under spaces for washing machine and dryer. The main entrance hallway has a cloakroom and the remaining reception room on the ground floor which is a double length dining/ sitting room with three aspects.

    At first floor level the main bedroom is a very good size with built in wardrobes, a deep cupboard, and access to the en suite/family bathroom. This has a tub, separate shower cubicle, hand basin bidet and W.C and could be divided in to two to separate the en suite from the landing (subject to any necessary consents). There is a guest bedroom with en suite shower and built-in wardrobes, a large study/bedroom with pleasant outlooks together with a fourth bedroom. A cupboard on the landing conceals a staircase which leads up to an unconverted loft space which has some potential for conversion subject to any necessary consents. The accommodation is shown in more detail in the attached floor plans.

    To the front there is a mature yew hedge along the road frontage inside which is a paved garden with central circular topiaried box hedging, extensive paving and an alpine rockery. The rear garden is walled, slopes gently upwards and features an area of artificial grass edged with flower and shrub borders, a rockery, a paved terrace in the centre and further planting with a small pond. A pedestrian door leads in to the detached double garage with electric up and over door beyond which is ample off-street parking for a number of cars.

    View payable Stamp Duty for this property

This is such a great house in a really good central position with a private walled garden behind and all within striking distance of the centre of the town and a little further away the railway station. It could do with a bit of updating but it will give a new owner the chance to put their stamp on it and end up.
