This large semi detached family house is set well back from Huntingdon Road behind a gravelled driveway and extensive parking area. The house, originally a 1930s semi, has been altered, extended and modernised beyond all recognition and now offers spacious luxuriously equipped family accommodation of nearly 4000 sq ft across three floors. No expense has been spared in the design, build and fit out and the house will suit those seeking high quality finishes, versatile family accommodation and a prime residential location. In a little more detail the accommodation comprises entrance hall with stairs to first floor and herringbone Amtico flooring. There is a front sitting room with bay window and extensive fitted cupboards. The family room/TV room has fitted shelving and doors to the rear garden. Off the hallway there is also a cloakroom and wc. Double doors from the hall lead to the beautifully equipped open plan kitchen/dining/drawing room which extends to about 29’7 x 40’ overall and is divided into three distinct areas. The kitchen area is beautifully appointed with high quality units, a large central island and extensive Corian working surfaces. There is a host of high quality integrated appliances and off the kitchen there is also a utility room. The kitchen leads to the dining area and in turn the drawing room where there are windows and doors to the front aspect and the full width of this entire space has large bi-folding doors providing views and access to the garden. On the first floor there is a landing with three good sized bedrooms, one of which has an en suite bathroom. There is also a family bathroom, well equipped with a large walk in shower and free standing bath. There are also double doors leading out to the roof terrace with glass balustrading and a glazed floor panel over the kitchen. A door from the hall leads to the master bedroom which is around 20’ x 16’9, well fitted with a range of wardrobes and storage and full width glazed doors (currently blocked) that provide views and access to the rear. There is also a large en suite bathroom with walk in shower, freestanding bath and high quality wall and floor tiling. On the second floor there is a large bedroom suite including the cloakroom and en suite bathroom with separate shower and access to the large loft storage space. The house is beautifully appointed and decorated throughout and also benefits from burglar alarm, gas central heating and double glazing.
Outside, the front garden is gravelled for ease of maintenance and to provide parking. The property is set back behind a high hedge providing good screening from the road and there is also a large storage shed.
The impressive rear garden has been superbly landscaped and has an extensive shaped deck at the rear of the property. Steps down lead to the well groomed lawn with attractive pathways through sculpted trees with discreet lighting including Himalayan Birch, miniature Yew and Amelanchers. There is a further seating area at the rear and the garden is enclosed by fencing and hedging.
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.
Beyond the rear garden there is the former University playing fields which are being developed. Further details and current planning can be obtained from the City Council website.
