Cambridge 2000: Chaucer Road: Vicarsbrook, 14A
This is perhaps the most expensive house ever built in Cambridge, and
quite possibly it also took the longest to finish, although the basic
structure was ready after a year or two.
There was an existing 1950s house, split into two dwellings, that was
demolished to make way for this new house. Most of Chaucer Road is
late Victorian or Edwardian, and so, although this mock Georgian house
looks nice enough, it is an odd style to choose to insert into the road.
It is unfortunate that the plot was too narrow to allow proper space
for the two coach houses at the front (one almost hidden behind the
tree at the left), and as a result they detract somewhat from the
view of the house.
