The property

Vine View is a wonderful period terraced city property which offers huge potential and would benefit from a programme of renovation. It has many original features including sash windows, decorative cast iron and tiled fireplaces, cornicing and architraving and stained glass. On the ground floor is a good-size sitting room, a dining room with doors to the garden, a kitchen/breakfast room and a cloakroom. On the first floor are three bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room and a family bathroom. Stairs lead up from the landing to the loft which has been converted into a fourth bedroom, or potentially a study/office. Properties such as these rarely come to the market and viewing is a highly recommended.


Hemingford Road is situated in the Romsey Town area of the city, accessed from the thriving Mill Road. No 125 is located right at the end of the street, next to Vinery Park and Romsey Recreation Ground. It is a typical Cambridge street populated with attractive period homes with the benefit of on-street parking. The property is very close to immediate local amenities including diverse cafes and restaurants, cafes and public houses, convenience stores, green grocers and hardware stores, hairdressers and a gym. It is readily accessible for the city centre, the open spaces of Parker's Piece, Addenbrookes Hospital and a Sainsbury's superstore. For those needing to commute it is a short walk to Cambridge railway station or a short drive/cycle ride to the A14 and Science Park.


There is a small amount of outside space to the front bordered by a brick wall. An attractive tiled path leads to the front door. There is a pedestrian gate to the side leading down to the rear garden. The gardens to the back of the house are unique in terms of size and length; they do require some tending and landscaping but offers excellent levels of privacy.


Services Mains water, drainage, gas and electricity.
