There aren't many properties that can boast a former blacksmiths forge as one of their features, but Crown Point is far from the norm. 

This one of a kind Grade II listed home brings together part of a Georgian townhouse with what was once a workshop to create a truly spectacular home. 

The property comprises the southernmost section of this elegant Ely townhouse.

Property agent James Barnett, from Savills Cambridge, said: “This is such an interesting house in a picturesque part of Ely with views of the river and many period features.

"Of particular note is a converted blacksmiths at the rear of the property which is now a characterful living/dining space with the original hearth and bellows still in place – linked to the Georgian side of the house via a modern glazed stairwell.”
