This late Victorian, semi-detached house has been sympathetically updated to retain its period charm, while providing a comfortable home with a wonderful feeling of space and light. The sitting room at the front of the house is a cosy room with a feature fireplace. The back of the house has been extended to incorporate the kitchen and the original side-return, creating a bright, open plan room with plenty of room for a large kitchen table, overlooking the garden through a part-glazed stable-style door. To the rear of the kitchen a utility room leads through to the downstairs shower room, which has been retained in addition to the luxurious en-suite bathroom upstairs. Upstairs you'll also find two good double bedrooms. The courtyard garden is particularly pretty and provides a calm space to rest and enjoy the sun.

Castle Hill is a quiet residential area just a short walk from the restaurants and bars of Bridge Street and the open spaces of Jesus Green and the River Cam. From St. Lukes Street, take a walk down Carlyle Road, past Alexandra Gardens with their bowling green; cross Chesterton Road at the zebra crossing and you'll find yourself at Jesus Lock Bridge, where you can cross the Cam to Jesus Green. Alternatively, walk straight down St. Lukes Street and through the alleyways to Castle Street; pass the Cambridge Folk Museum on your right and cross Chesterton Road at the traffic lights; continue along Magdelene Street, across Magdelene Bridge and you're at Bridge Street in the heart of the city.
