Herbert Street’s location is ideal for access to the city acrosss Jesus Green. The area is particularly well served with plenty of amenities very close by including local supermarkets, banks, public houses and restaurants, as well as being in the catchment area for the popular Milton Road Primary School and Chesterton Community College.

Arranged over 3 storeys, 5 Herbert Street is a delightful city home offering well-presented and spacious accommodation throughout. Briefly it comprises; entrance hall, 2 reception rooms, large open-plan kitchen / family room, downstairs W.C, 5 bedrooms and 2 bath / shower rooms.

The 2 principal reception rooms remain in their original configuration. The entrance hall continues through to the rear of the property into a particularly bright and spacious L-shaped room which is perfect for both entertaining and everyday family living, overlooking the rear garden.

The kitchen has been tastefully refitted with hand-made cabinetry and is complemented with black granite worktops and wood-effect Amtico flooring. At the rear of the kitchen, the open-plan family or dining area has a dual aspect providing pleasant views over the rear garden and side courtyard. The kitchen / family room also has the benefit of bespoke feature roof lantern and a partially glazed roof which provides an abundance of natural light.

The sitting room situated at the front of the property is a generous room with an open fireplace and a large bay window. The original dining room, also with an open fireplace, is currently used as a children’s playroom, however, it would also make a good snug lounge or could be used as a more formal dining room.

Across the upper two storeys, there are five bedrooms, 4 of which would comfortably accommodate double beds. The 5th bedroom is currently used as a study, however, it would be a great children’s bedroom / nursery. Of particular note, the bright master suite occupies the 2nd floor of the property and is well equipped with en-suite facilities and a balcony which commands far reaching views over neighbouring rooftops towards the river.

The property is set back behind a small front garden and is approached via a path leading to the front entrance door. There is a charming mature garden at the rear which is made up of a paved courtyard area which wraps around the property and a lawn at the rear which is bordered by a range of attractive shrubs, rose bushes and small trees. There is a garden shed for storage.
