This warm and inviting period home lies at the edge of the picturesque Montague Road, a tree-lined street in the coveted De Freville area of Cambridge. Elegantly decorated, and with four generously sized bedrooms, this Victorian semi-detached home cultivates an atmosphere of calm and comfort. 

A quarry tile path leads you to the front door, taking you into a light and bright hallway with original plaster detailing and sanded floorboards, which continue through to the open plan living room. The open plan living room has dual aspects thus creating plenty of natural light, with a stone bay window to the front, and French doors to the back leading to the side return and rear garden. A focal point is found in the open fireplace, offering a cozy sanctuary on cooler evenings. 

The well-appointed kitchen occupies the rear of the property with contemporary Shaker-style cabinets, metro tile splash-backs, tiled floor, and the galley layout means that there is plentiful worktop space. There is an electric cooker and hob, overhead extractor fan, and spaces for freestanding appliances. There are windows to the side and rear, as well as access to the rear garden adding to the home's indoor-outdoor flow providing a welcoming entertaining and dining space. Under the stairs there is a handy storage cupboard, ideal for coats and shoes, as well as a contemporary downstairs WC. 

The stairs and landing to the first floor are carpeted in hardwearing and durable coir carpet and leads you to three of the four bedrooms. The master bedroom sits at the front of the property and boasts a stunning fireplace and timber sash windows, which flood the room with natural light, providing a wonderful retreat. There are two further double bedrooms on this floor and the present owner currently uses the third bedroom, directly overlooking the lawned garden, as a studio and home office. There is a family bathroom, with glazed mosaic tiles, contemporary sanitaryware, and a bath with shower over.

Ascending to the second floor is a further large double bedroom with a full width dormer and further Velux window to the front. There are built-in wardrobes and access to the eaves for further storage.

The garden is easily accessible from both the kitchen and the open-plan living room. A side gate leads to the front garden, featuring a wider than average side return. The mostly lawned garden is complemented by a patio adjoining the house, a convenient garden shed for storage, and additional utility space in the side return.

This beautiful family home is located in an ever popular residential area just north of the river Cam and Midsummer Common and is less than one mile from Cambridge's bustling city centre. There are plenty of amenities close by including the ever popular Stir café; The Old Spring, Fort St George and The Tivoli pubs; superb restaurants; and local shops. The catchment area schools are the very well-regarded Milton Road Primary School and Chesterton Community College, which was last rated 'Outstanding' by Ofsted.
