Property Description

This elegant 4-bedroom semi-detached Edwardian house enjoys a desirable position in the heart of Newnham, just north of the River Cam and a short walk from Lammas Land. The property has been exceptionally well cared for since it was purchased 17 years ago and offers a wealth of charm, as well as versatility to suit individual purchasers’ needs.

The property is entered via a stained-glass timber door with fanlight over, leading to an entrance hall with a built-in cupboard and stairs leading to the first floor. There is a generous open-plan living/dining room, benefitting from a dual aspect and finished with solid wood flooring. The living room has a bay window and an open fireplace, contrasted by tiled inserts and an attractive surround. The kitchen has been fitted with a modern range of units and includes various integrated/freestanding appliances. There is a small breakfast bar and French doors leading to the private rear garden. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a cloakroom W.C.

Upstairs the accommodation is split over 2 floors, the first housing 3 good sized bedrooms and a bathroom which has been fitted with a modern white suite. The impressive master bedroom includes an en suite shower room, benefits from a dual aspect and plenty of eaves storage. A door off from the second-floor landing leads through to further eaves storage, previously used as a play area for children and equipped with lighting and power.
Outside there is permit parking available and a small front garden enclosed by a box hedge and fencing. A block paved pathway leads to the main entrance. The private rear garden is mainly paved for ease of maintenance and also has a raised decked terrace, offering a superb degree of privacy and well suited to alfresco dining. Finally, there is a bright purpose-built studio with wired internet, power and underfloor heating (requiring a control unit). The room offers plenty of versatility for working from home and would also serve as a perfect artists’ studio. The whole of the garden is enclosed by fencing and there is a secure gate leading to Eltisley Garages and the front of Marlowe Road.


Marlowe Road, at the southern end of Newnham, is approached from Grantchester Meadows, which provides walks along the river to Grantchester. The City centre, colleges and University departments can be approached on foot or by bicycle via 'The Backs'. There is a range of local shopping and a primary school in Newnham with state and independent schools for all age groups within the City.
