About this property

  • 13 Guest Road is a substantial three storey double bay townhouse, constructed of Cambridge white brick elevations beneath a re-slated roof with mainly double glazed windows throughout. The property extends to approximately 2.057 sq ft with flexible, family friendly accommodation and was subject to a major refurbishment and reconfiguration program during 2014.

    The property is accessed via a half double glazed entrance door to a lobby with stained glass windows into the hallway, which has stripped wooden floorboards and an attractive archway with corbels. There are two large reception rooms, both have very good ceiling heights and ceiling roses and the front sitting room has a tall bay window. The kitchen/breakfast room and dining room, formerly two rooms, is dual aspect with wide bi-folding glazed doors to the rear, has been combined and now open plan. There is an extensive range of cream coloured cabinetry including integrated Bosch dishwasher, washing machine and Neff stainless steel double ovens along with granite work surfaces, In addition, there is a central island, again with granite counter and integrated five burner gas hob with central wok burner and a breakfast bar to the side which would accommodate three diners. There is ample space to the rear for a six seater dining table along with direct access into the garden. A cellar, with standing height of around 6' is accessed via the hallway which provides plenty of storage space etc.

    There are five large bedrooms over the two upper floors, the main bedroom is situated at the front, extends the full width of the property, again with a tall double glazed bay window and retains an attractive cast iron fireplace with ornate tiled slips, there is ample space for wall to wall wardrobes to be built and the sellers, during the refurbishment, installed plumbing for an en suite shower which is capped below floor level. The rear bedroom has a en suite shower room which has a tiled floor, radiator and heated towel rail, adjacent to which, is the spacious family bathroom similarly styled with bath, separate shower cubicle and a heated towel rail and is fully tiled.

    The two bedrooms at second floor both have original cast iron fireplaces, double glazed windows and the front bedrooms retains an attractive panelled wardrobe. There is a Velux skylight installed at the upper landing which is solar powered with a rain sensor and allows for natural light to enter the house.

    The property which has a gas fired central heating system is conveniently located just off Mill Road, close to excellent everyday facilities and can be seen in greater detail on the attached floorplans. Planning permission was granted for a ground floor side extension in 2018, which was implemented by earlier works included in the application to the top floor so the extension could be carried out to suit the new owners as and when is required.

    The property is set back from Guest Road beyond a shallow pebbled frontage. The rear garden is walled and has a limestone paved terrace with ample space for eating out along with small ornamental lawn. There is a timber cycle shed and pedestrian gated access onto a shared communal alleyway, accessed via a locked gate along Collier Road.
