This substantial semi-detached Victorian house is located towards the Huntingdon Road end of Richmond Road and is within easy reach of excellent schools, colleges and historic centre. 10 Richmond Road forms one half of Rialto Villas and has a grand double bay façade with light brick elevations and decorative timbers beneath a slate roof. The property is set behind a walled front garden which provides off-street parking for one vehicle and gated side access to the rear. A broad and decorative entrance vestibule leads to the attractive stained glass entrance door. The reception hall has an elegant staircase which rises to the first-floor accommodation and provides access to a useful storage cellar (18’8’’ x 6’6’’). The well-proportioned dining room has a large stained glass bay window overlooking the front aspect and gas fire with tiled surround. The bright and spacious sitting room enjoys an elevated position and views over the rear garden from a large feature bay window. There is an open fireplace with tiled surround and book shelving. The kitchen adjoins the sitting room and offers potential to knock through to make one large space. The kitchen is basic and provides a sink, storage units, large open fireplace and space for a dining table. There is access to an inner lobby, utility room with oven, working surfaces and additional storage cupboards. A boot room and shower room complete the ground floor accommodation. Upstairs, the first-floor landing leads to three spacious double bedrooms, a well-equipped kitchenette and bathroom suite in need of modernisation.

The upper floor comprises two spacious bedrooms. One has a wash hand basin and large walk-in cupboard which could be converted to a en suite shower room. The second bedroom has an L-shaped configuration and would make an ideal study/working space. Outside, the established rear offers a high degree of privacy and a south-facing aspect. There is a lawn with established plants, shrubs and trees set to borders, side gated access and access to a brick-built store.


Richmond Road forms part of a popular and established residential area lying just over 1 mile north of the City centre. The property is close to local schools including Mayfield Primary School and Chesterton Community College. The City centre is easily accessible on foot or bicycle.
