Portugal Place, a pedestrianised thoroughfare, is situated close to St John's College and St Clement's Church, a stroll away from Jesus Green and the River Cam. Excellent shopping facilities are literally within walking distance along St John's, Trinity and Sidney Streets, beyond which is a busy daily market and the Grand Arcade shopping mall. Recreational and cultural amenities including museums and the Cambridge Colleges are available in Cambridge. Popular and fashionable restaurants and pubs including Cote Brasserie, River Bar restaurant, and The Maypole (well known for its exotic cocktails) are in the immediate vicinity as is The Varsity Hotel with its roof top terrace. The Glassworks, the only gym and spa facility in central Cambridge, is likewise within 100 metres.
Cambridge railway station is 1.25 miles distant with services to London from around 48 minutes. Schools in all age groups in both the state and independent sectors are in the city with Lower Park Street Primary School close to the end of Portugal Place.
Located in a charming conservation area, 11 Portugal Place is an inner terraced property dating from the early 1800's of painted brick elevations with sash windows beneath a slate roof. The property, which is accessed via 4 Yorkstone steps to the hallway, has appealing, characterful and flexible accommodation laid out over 4 floors. Of particular note is the drawing room at upper ground floor which has a beautiful cast iron fireplace, moulded cornicing and plenty of book shelving. Following an extension program in 2012 this area now looks into a stylish and mostly glazed sitting/garden room with under-floor heating, painted brick walls and high sloping glazed ceiling.
At lower level there is a dining room, with sash window to the front which connects to a fitted kitchen with high gloss white cabinetry, freestanding upright fridge and freezer along with integrated double oven and gas hob. There is also a WC and large walk-in store/wine store.
At first floor is a large double bedroom which extends the full width of the house, currently used as a study/television room. Here there are wall to wall book shelves to 3 walls and 2 sash windows overlooking Portugal Place. The master bedroom, which is dual aspect, has an en suite shower room and is situated at second floor level. The remainder of the property, which includes a main bathroom and walk-in wardrobe, has retained many original features such as panelled doors and door furniture and sash windows and can be seen in greater detail on the attached floor plans.
Of particular note is the 'L' shaped walled rear garden which 'extends' beyond the next door property and comprises a paved and cobbled courtyard with raised flower and shrub borders. This particularly pleasant and south and west facing courtyard also has a locked brick-built cycle/potting/tool shed with access beyond to a side passage connecting with Portugal Place. There is a resident's parking permit scheme in operation.
Square Footage: 1,531 sq ft
