Situated within a highly regarded, near central residential area, Chesterton Road offers easy access into the city centre by foot or bicycle via Jesus Green. There are a wide range of local shopping and other facilities just a short walk along Chesterton Road and the property is ideally located for access to many university colleges and departments. London commuters benefit from a regular and direct train service from Cambridge station with journey times from just 50 minutes.
Part of Melrose Terrace dating back to the late 1800's, 41 Chesterton Road is delightfully positioned directly opposite the river Cam enjoying a superb outlook over the expanse of Jesus Green and the tennis courts beyond. The outlook is particularly attractive from the upper floors and there is also a very pleasant rear aspect over another of the city's parks, Alexandra Gardens, which lies immediately to the rear of the property.
Arranged over 4 floors, the impressively spacious and versatile accommodation is ideal for family occupation. The property has been exceptionally well-maintained by the current owners and maintains an elegant and very authentic feel throughout retaining numerous original features. Any alterations and improvements have been carefully considered in order to preserve the original charm and character of the property. The principal reception room (formerly 2 reception rooms) now provides a most impressive entertaining space spanning the property from front to rear, with high ceilings and a magnificent bay window to the front providing views of the river. With a lovely outlook to the garden, the dual aspect kitchen breakfast room provides a bright, informal dining space with some wonderful original coloured glass sash windows and has been tastefully refitted with a comprehensive range of fitted units with soft closing doors, integrated appliances, filtered drinking water tap and granite work surfaces.
The lower ground floor, which is currently used as ancillary accommodation, comprises kitchen, dining area, sitting room, large double bedroom and a bathroom and, in keeping with the rest of the property, is in good repair and immaculately presented. Subject to any necessary consent, this part of the house could be used as a separate apartment with independent front and rear access or it would work equally well as a self-contained annexe or guest suite.
There are four bedrooms on the two upper floors each of which would comfortably accommodate a double bed. The master bedroom is exceptionally spacious and benefits from stunning views over the river Cam and beyond. The commodious family bathroom has been tastefully designed and incorporates many period fittings such as a splendid roll top bath with 'ball and claw' feet and a Victorian style W.C. with traditional high level bracket cistern. There is also a separate W.C. adjacent to the family bathroom.
The gardens are well-tended and have been beautifully landscaped. The surprisingly large rear garden provides a noticeably peaceful outside space which feels a world away from the bustling city. Towards the end of the garden there is a tranquil secret garden with a wooden decked area and a vine covered pergola. Beyond this, there is a timber summerhouse / store and a gate giving direct access into the stunning Alexandra Gardens.
