Located towards the city end of Huntingdon Road and within easy reach of outstanding schools and colleges, this attractive 1930’s detached house occupies a generous plot which provides stunning gardens and ample off-street parking with the benefit of a garage. The property has been lovingly restored and sympathetically improved by the current owners, including double glazed wood windows throughout, resulting in a wonderful family home offering flexible and immaculately presented accommodation arranged over two spacious and light-filled floors.
A bright and airy reception hall has an attractive staircase rising to the first-floor accommodation and leads to a refitted WC. The dual aspect sitting room enjoys a high degree of natural light and has a feature period style surround with working fireplace, window overlooking the front aspect and glazed French doors opening onto a deep patio area which extends around the rear of the property. The family room overlooks the front aspect and is a versatile space which connects to a snug/study room. The extended kitchen/dining room has been well designed and refitted and is well-equipped for a large family. There is an extensive range of low-level units and drawers, matching walled mounted cabinets, working surfaces with tiled splashbacks and an inset ceramic sink. A wide tiled recess houses a large Rangemaster range cooker and extractor hood. There is ample space for a dining table set up and small central island. There is access to the patio and the dining area enjoys views down the garden. A useful utility room is located off the kitchen with a stainless steel sink, plumbing for washing machine, space for tumble drier and a broom cupboard, and this completes the ground floor accommodation. Upstairs, a bright and spacious landing leads to the family bathroom suite and four bedrooms. Bedroom 3 provides an en suite shower room and the large master bedroom benefits from triple aspects. Outside, the property is set back from the road and is approached via a broad gravel driveway which provides ample off-street parking for various vehicles. The rear garden is generous in size and has been beautifully moulded over the years to create a wonderful private outside space with well-stocked borders of various flowers, shrubs and trees surrounding a neat and manicured lawn. There is also a greenhouse, mature fruit trees and raised vegetable beds. The property offers fantastic scope for further expansion subject to planning consent.
Huntingdon Road is situated to the north of the City within easy walking or cycling distance of the centre and many of the facilities offered by the University. There is excellent schooling for all age groups within the area and within walking distance of the well-regarded Independent Prep schools of St John College and Kings College Schools.
