This attractive double-bay fronted 1930’s detached family house occupies a lovely position on Highfield Avenue which forms part of a highly regarded and peaceful residential area within catchment for Milton Road Primary School and Chesterton Community College. The property has undergone significant changes and has been extended and greatly improved, resulting in a wonderful family home with extensive and flexible accommodation over three floors, finished to a good standard throughout.
The reception hall is bright and airy and has an attractive stained-glass entrance door with matching side windows and transom, solid wood floor and WC. The sitting room is broad and well-proportioned and has a large feature bay window overlooking the front aspect, inset woodburning stove and a calming pastel colour scheme. The adjoining family room provides book shelving and cabinetry to one wall and floor to ceiling sliding glazed doors which open to a private decked seating area with views down the garden. The well-equipped kitchen provides an extensive range of quality cabinets and drawers, working surfaces, some integrated appliances and space for freestanding goods and an attractive wood floor which continues into the glazed dining area which enjoys complete views of the garden. A large utility with access to the garden and a dual aspect study/craft room complete the ground floor accommodation. Upstairs, the first floor landing leads to the impressive family bathroom suite with freestanding bath and separate shower cubicle and three light and spacious bedrooms. Bedrooms one and two are good double bedrooms providing ample built-in storage and hanging space. The second floor comprises one large bedroom which offers lots of storage solutions and a stunning feature apex window which allows lots of natural light and great views. Outside, the property is approached via an established front garden which provides parking and side access to the rear. The large rear garden is predominately laid to lawn with wide borders to either side providing a variety of established plants, shrubs and attractive mature trees. There is a summer house with power and lighting and ample space for a vegetable garden.


Highfield Avenue, which runs between Hurst Park Avenue and Leys Avenue, forms part of an established residential area of predominantly inter-war housing, approached from Milton Road. There are local shopping facilities at Mitcham's Corner, Arbury Court and on Milton Road itself with primary schooling at Milton Road and secondary schooling at Chesterton Community College. The area is easily accessible to the city centre, Cambridge Science Park, the A14 and Cambridge North Railway Station.
