A superbly situated & well proportioned (1,640 sq ft) inner terraced townhouse close to the heart of Newnham


Eltisley Avenue is situated to the south of the hugely popular Newnham district of Cambridge. Newnham has good everyday shopping facilities including grocery store/post office, butchers, bakery and a chemist, along with more comprehensive facilities and recreational and cultural amenities within the city.

Newnham Croft Primary School is within Newnham which 'feeds' into Parkside Secondary School whilst independent schools for all age groups are in Cambridge, The Leys, St John's and King's College schools are in the close vicinity.

There are several footpaths running through Paradise nature reserve to the River Cam and at the western end of Grantchester Meadows, once beyond St Catherine's College sports field is a footpath leading onto the meadows and towards Grantchester.

For the commuter there are fast and regular train services available from Cambridge station, together with access to the M11 just to the west of the City, a short distance away. The M11 in turn leads to the A14 and onto the A1, M1 & M6 and to the south is the M25 and London.


39 Eltisley Avenue is an extended, inner terraced double square bay fronted Victorian property constructed of red brick elevations with sash windows beneath a tiled roof. The property, which is well presented, extends to 1,640 sq ft with accommodation laid out over 3 floors.

Of particular note is the 'through' dual aspect sitting and dining rooms which have a south east - north west orientation and attract a great deal of light. The room has a wide bay to the front, stripped pine floorboards and an attractive (painted) slate fireplace surround with slate hearth and recently installed 'Clearview' cast iron wood-burning stove. There are painted French doors to the rear which lead to the garden. To the rear is a large kitchen/breakfast room, fitted with a comprehensive range of cream coloured cabinetry with freestanding wide cooking range and space for dishwasher, washer/dryer and an upright fridge/freezer. Within the breakfast area there are French grey painted deep shelved cupboards, ideal for crockery and glassware etc. A downstairs WC and shower room (which could benefit from re-fitting) completes the ground floor accommodation.

There are 5 double bedrooms on the upper floors including 3 at first floor. The master, situated to the front, occupies the full width of the property and has 3 wide sash windows and a single and 2 double fitted wardrobes. The bathroom has white sanitary ware with an enamel bath and a mixer shower over.

The house is set back from the road behind a tall evergreen hedge which could be used for cycle/scooter storage, whilst the rear garden is enclosed, north west facing and laid mostly to lawn. There are attractive low level shrubs and 4 tall attractive bay trees with wide Indian sandstone terrace. To the rear is a timber pergola with child's swing and trapeze, crab apple tree, 6 x 8 timber shed and rear pedestrian access onto a rear pathway shared with Eltisley Avenue properties.
