A classic Victorian semi-detached four storey town house located close to Ipswich School and Christchurch Park, with the added benefit of an income producing basement flat.
Cambridge House, built in 1883 is a classically handsome, white brick, semi-detached Victorian town house which has been thoroughly restored by the present vendors over the last nine years or so. The accommodation, set over four floors, displaying high ceilings and Victorian proportions, extends to some 3,400 sq ft in all. The property includes a reception hall with a mosaic tiled floor, set off which are both a well-proportioned drawing room, with an attractive bay window and fireplace, together with an impressive 25 ft open plan kitchen/dining room. The fully fitted kitchen includes corian and granite work surfaces, together with integrated appliances, and the room, with its high ceilings has a wide feature window with central French doors opening onto a delightful canopied veranda with a ornate balustrade adorned with a productive grape vine from where there are views right across the rooftops of Ipswich towards both the Orwell Bridge and the Belstead Woods in the distance.
An elegant staircase rises to the first and second floor landings, set off which is a total of six bedrooms, a large family bathroom and a further spacious shower room. There is also a dressing room adjacent to the principal bedroom. One of the top floor bedrooms has been used as a study and there is also a separate laundry/ironing room on the second floor with plumbing for washers and dryers.
The basement includes a rear hall for the house which accesses onto the garden as well as the two bedroom basement flat, which has a living room, kitchenette and shower room. The flat is currently let on a short short-hold tenancy and provides a useful income stream (further details available from the agents).
A pedestrian gate accesses the south facing rear garden which includes a number of trees including cherry and crab apple.
In addition to well-stocked herbaceous borders and an enclosed gravel area the majority of the garden has a durable astro turf, which is both easy to maintain and consistent in colour (and does not require mowing!) and there is an area, immediately to the rear of the house, which is nicely sheltered by the veranda deck.
Although at present there is no dedicated off-street parking, the vendors of the property are entitled to parking permits to use the numerous dedicated permit holders parking bays within close proximity.
Planning permission has been secured for the creation of a drop kerb and a shared driveway with the neighbouring property, which would widen the access to the respective gardens and also provide off-street parking.
