An appealing and spacious period property, with four bedrooms and established garden.
26 Marlowe Road is an attractive period property with a well-presented interior and retained character details including solid wood flooring, original fireplaces and ornate plasterwork. The well-proportioned accommodation is arranged across three floors and offers semi open-plan living areas.
On the ground floor, the welcoming reception hall leads through into an open plan front aspect sitting room that benefits from a highly attractive fireplace. A second sitting room, that can be utilised as a dining room, flows from here and features bespoke built-in storage. The kitchen and breakfast room is a generous space at the rear of the property, with a long skylight providing additional natural light. The kitchen features classic shaker style units, with modern integrated appliances and seamless white countertops. The sunny breakfast area features two built-in window seats with storage and space for a good-sized dining table with French doors with shutters opening the space to the patio.
The first floor is home to three bedrooms, one of which is particularly spacious and features an ornamental fireplace and built-in wardrobes, while a further bedroom also benefits from integrated storage. There is also a well-appointed family bathroom. The generously sized principal bedroom is located on the second floor, and benefits from an en suite cloakroom, while dual aspect windows and a skylight offer ample natural light.
The property is set on a well-presented residential street and features a paved front garden with original red brick wall, and a tiled path leading to the main entrance. At the rear of the property, a paved patio offers the ideal spot for al fresco dining, thanks to its south-west facing orientation. A good-sized garden is laid to lawn and features established planting including semi-mature trees, creating a secluded feel to the outside space. A large shed is located at the bottom of the garden.
Situated just south west of Cambridge's historic centre, the property enjoys a quiet location with convenient access to a host of amenities, independent shopping and dining options, as well as the mainline station. Newnham Croft Primary School is well-regarded and is located very close to the property, while there are also several independent schooling options in the local area which are featured in The Good Schools Guide, including Stephen Perse Rosedale Pre-Prep, The Leys School and King's College School.
