A substantial (2,524 sq ft) Victorian 3 storey semi detached property with long south facing garden


Lyndewode Road is situated between Glisson Road and Tenison Road with number 8 being situated on the favoured south side of the road, closer to the junction with Glisson Road. There are excellent everyday shopping facilities including Tesco and Co-Op mini supermarkets and a post office along nearby Hills Road along with a bank and 2 churches whilst close by, along Mill Road are a further eclectic mix of shops and continental cuisine available.

Schools in all age groups in both the state and independent sectors are available in Cambridge which include state Parkside Secondary and Sixth Form just beyond Parker's Piece which is a large public grassed open square.

Cambridge railway station is within walking distance (for most) and has mainline services to London from 48 minutes and Stansted Airport for those looking for international travel.

Cambridge has a wide range of cultural and recreational amenities including a number of museums, the University Botanical Gardens - a large 40 acre university owned garden with several thousand plant species and Victorian glass houses along with Cambridge Leisure - a large multi screen cinema/bowling alley complex and The Junction - a popular live music/comedy venue within approximately 500 metres.


8 Lyndewode Road is a well proportioned 2,524 sq ft Victorian property constructed of Cambridge brick elevations with sash windows beneath a slate tiled roof. The property has wide double bay windows to the front and rear of the property and has accommodation extending over ground, first and second floors. Of particular note, compared to the majority of houses along Lyndewode Road is the broad ground floor accommodation which has 3 large reception rooms including a drawing room with painted marble open fireplace, a wide bay window which looks into the rear gardens. Adjacent to the drawing room is a mostly glazed garden room with glazed sloping roof and painted brick walls. The property can be accessed via either one of two hallways, the main hallway is substantial and has stripped wooden floors, a wide archway with corbels, an elegant staircase and moulded ceiling cornicing, the second hall and entrance to the east leads past a wet room/WC towards the kitchen/breakfast room which has a comprehensive range of fitted cabinetry and integrated appliances including fridge/freezer, oven, hob and extractor fan.

At first floor, via an attractive landing there are two very large bedrooms, the front bedroom has an attractive arched sash window and the rear, a marble fireplace and wide bay window. There is a family bathroom and separate WC. On the 2nd floor, again via an ample landing, are 2 further large bedrooms, the front bedroom has a vanity unit and a built-in double wardrobe.

The property has been occupied by the current owner for just over 50 years and retains many original features such as sash windows, marble fireplace surrounds, deep skirting boards and substantial pine panelled doors. The house, which has exposed wooden floorboards to the majority of the ground floor rooms might possibly lend itself to some re-configuration to increase bedroom accommodation and could benefit from some refurbishment. The current owner has more recently had some recent re-roofing works carried out with new felt, battens and slate tiles.

To the front, the house is set back behind a dwarf brick wall and there is a pathway to the left and the right leading to each side hallway, the left having a bin/cycle shed.

To the rear and at the far end of the garden is a well proportioned brick built artist's studio with a pitched tiled roof, there is power and light connected (along with a potter's kiln which is in need of attention and fuelled by portable gas canisters) which could be used as an home office, if required. The rear garden is walled, extends to 83 feet (plus the depth of the studio) and is largely overgrown but has some tall mature and interesting trees within and provides a 'blank canvas' for those looking to design their own garden.

Square Footage: 2,524 sq ft
