Leys Road forms part of a highly regarded residential area just north of Cambridge City centre close to good local facilities including a parade of shops on Milton Road catering for most day-to-day needs. There are bus and cycle routes along Milton Road into the centre of Cambridge and the location will prove convenient for anyone needing access to the Science & Business Parks as well as the new train station at Chesterton. The property is within the catchment area for both Milton Road Primary School, Chesterton Community College and North Cambridge Academy.
Set well back from the road on a larger than average plot, the property is approached by an ‘in-and-out’ driveway which extends via a large drive-through carport to a 30ft x 9ft garage/workshop at the end of the garden. Built in a mock-Tudor style during the 1930’s the property has been well looked-after during the present lengthy ownership and considerable care has been taken to preserve the original character of the building. Extended some years ago in-keeping with the original design, the property has tremendous character and offers well-proportioned, extensive family living accommodation with many original features including particularly impressive period fireplaces in the dining room and sitting room.
As well as an intruder alarm and hard-wired smoke detectors there is extensive Cat5 data cabling throughout. Ideal for family occupation the accommodation includes 4 reception rooms arranged radially around an impressively spacious reception hall with parquet flooring which also extends to the dining room; upstairs there are 4 double bedrooms and shower/WC off the landing. There is also potential for 2 en-suite shower rooms and a bathroom within the current floorplan.
The established gardens are also a major feature of the property, the 100ft x 50ft rear garden enjoying a south-easterly aspect and including features such as a large paved terrace and sunken lawn.
