An elegantly proportioned seven bedroom family house situated in one of the most sought after roads in Newnham


Millington Road is a private road owned by Kings College which is situated off Barton Road on the west side of the city. Number 27 is located on the southern side towards the end of road.
This much sought after road is situated in Newnham, a desirable and leafy district of Cambridge. Newnham is well served in terms of everyday shopping facilities which include a chemist, butcher, bakery, post office/delicatessen, mini supermarket, church, a popular pub, The Red Bull and a weekly fishmonger (on Saturdays).

Newnham Croft Primary School is nearby on Chedworth Street, there are independent schools along Grange and West Roads - St John's and King's College Schools respectively and state schools for all age groups in Cambridge. Excellent shopping facilities including a busy market square and The Grande Arcade shopping mall are available in the city centre. There are also a wide range of recreational and cultural amenities available in Cambridge. The railway station has mainline services to London from around 48 minutes and the M11 (junction 12) heads south towards London via Stansted Airport and north towards the A14, A1, M1 and M6 and is within easy reach via Barton Road.


27 Millington Road is an imposing detached property dating back to 1926 constructed of Cambridge yellow brick with steel windows beneath a clay pan-tiled roof and is in an enviable position with a south facing garden.

The property extends to 3,536 sq ft and has accommodation extending over ground, first and second floors. From the upper floors there are far reaching views over gardens and college playing fields beyond.

The current owners, following their acquisition of the property, embarked on a major refurbishment and sympathetic extension program in 2002 which included a partial re-wiring, re-plumbing and reconfiguration.

The property is approached along a lavender bordered stone path which leads past an enclosed small lawn on the left and a gravel stone driveway with parking for two cars on the right. A large hard wood door opens onto the entrance hallway with a mix of polished brick and narrow boarded wooden floors and it is lined on either side with book shelves. The hallway opens into a large reception hall which communicates with all the principal rooms on the ground floor and is enhanced by a well positioned round window providing views of the garden beyond the dining room.

To the left of the hall there is an architect designed drawing room with a vaulted ceiling and views over the front garden. At the rear of the room a set of double doors lead into a sitting room with pretty fireplace, views of the garden and access to the hall and dining room through a further set of glazed double doors. The dining room, painted in an attractive blue has a large bay window overlooking the garden, access to the terrace through glazed French doors and the kitchen breakfast room to the right.

The kitchen which benefits from a large "picture window" also overlooking the rear garden has a comprehensive range of wooden cabinetry with integrated Bosch appliances including a four ring hob with extractor over, twin ovens, space for an under-counter fridge and plumbing for a dishwasher. Beyond the kitchen there is a smaller hallway with large door giving access to an enclosed paved and gravelled area which is ideal for bike and bin storage. Behind this there is a utility room with space for a fridge freezer and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble drier and a boot room which also accesses the garden. There is a further reception room which in our opinion would make an ideal playroom or TV room and a WC completes the downstairs accommodation.

The first floor is approached via a wide wooden staircase lit with natural light from two long windows. Here are three double bedrooms and a family bathroom. Of particular note is the master bedroom with stripped wood floors, access onto a south facing covered balcony overlooking the garden and playing fields beyond. This exceptional bedroom also benefits from a large dressing room [formerly a bedroom] separate WC and bathroom with white sanitaryware and fittings by Barber Wilson and Armitage Shanks with twin sinks, separate shower and bath.

On the second floor there are three further bedrooms and a further bathroom. The largest room identified as bedroom two on the attached plan has a Juliet balcony with double doors and far reaching southerly views as well as access to a large walk-in loft room.

Outside, the rear garden has been divided into a number of distinct areas. Closest to the house a loggia opens onto a wide terrace which extends the width of the property and leads through a gate in wrought iron park railings to a wide manicured lawn which is surrounded by curved flower beds, stocked with mature shrubs and interspersed with attractive tree specimens. A pathway running alongside a mature beech hedge leads to a fenced swimming pool area with a lined and insulated heated pool.

There is a further area which has been planted with fruit trees and a couple of useful garden sheds.

In all about 0.25 of an acre.

Square Footage: 3,536 sq ft
Acreage: 0.25 Acres


From Queen's Road (The Backs - rear of King's and Queen's Colleges) proceed south, passing Silver Street on your left, over the mini roundabout at Fen Causeway and continue bearing right onto Barton Road. Take the third exit on the left onto Millington Road. Number 27 can be found on the southern side after the bend on the left hand side.
