This delightful bay-fronted Victorian residence has been completely renovated since it was purchased in 2015 and now provides light-filled accommodation over two floors. Improvements to the property include damp coursing, re-wiring, a new central heating system with underfloor heating to the ground floor, replacement doors and windows to the majority of the house, coupled with a number of pre-installed RSJ’s and pads in readiness for extension.
The property is entered via a solid timber door with a fanlight over. The hallway has an archway with original period corbel and is finished with elegant Fired Earth floor tiling and provides space for coats and footwear. Of particular note is the impressive open-plan living/dining room which benefits from a dual aspect, ornate cornicing and ceiling roses, and is finished with herringbone engineered wood flooring. The living room includes bespoke fitted storage units and shutters to the bay with replacement sash windows, and has a multi-fuel burning stove, contrasted by a Portland stone surround. The kitchen has been fitted with a modern range of units and is sympathetically finished with oak worktops.
Upstairs are 2 good-sized bedrooms, both with exposed floorboards, fitted shutters, feature fireplaces, cast iron radiators and fitted wardrobes/cupboards. The bathroom has been fitted with a modern white suite and heated towel rail, and houses a combi-boiler.
Outside the front of the property is set back behind a shallow front garden with a low brick wall and there is a pathway to the main entrance. The southwest-facing rear garden offers a good degree of privacy throughout. There is a paved patio, timber shed, and the remainder is laid to lawn and bordered with a variety of shrubs. A secure side gate leads back to the front of the property via East Hertford Street.
Alpha Road forms part of a highly regarded central residential area just to the north of the river and Jesus Green, close to Alexandra Gardens and an easy walk from the centre of Cambridge with excellent local facilities and easy access to University colleges. There is a wide range of local shopping on both Mitcham's Corner and Victoria Road.
The property has planning permission for a part two storey and part single storey rear extension and roof extension incorporating rear dormer and front roof lights (REF: 20/03476/HFUL)
