A site with development potential for up to seven houses or alternatively to retain and refurbish the existing period house which stands in approximately half an acre that backs onto open countryside.

Located on the edge of Gamlingay and set between mixed residential houses the property currently comprises a period three bedroom house, large mature gardens and outbuildings that is currently let under an Assured Short-hold Tenancy agreement. Pre-planning advice has been sought from the local planning authority with a proposed layout for seven dwellings submitted. The response from the local planning authority states that “the principle of residential development on the site is considered acceptable and to accord with policies S/7, S/11 and H/8 of the South Cambridgeshire Local Plan” and “the proposed development would have an acceptable impact on the visual amenity of the area and that the proposed dwellings would be compatible in terms of their scale, mass, form, siting and design.” The advice also states that the specific layout put forward “would not be supported by officers” as “certain plots would result in an overbearing impact or loss of privacy to neighbouring properties, most notably on the future occupiers of the proposed development.” A full copy of the advice will be included within the legal pack.



Existing House - Ground Floor Accommodation:

Porch, hall, large sitting room with a fireplace, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room and a bathroom.

The house is set back from the road with a large area of garden and a sizable stone barn in the foreground plus a parking area. The rear garden benefits from a good selection of mature trees and shrubs, lawns and another two outbuildings.


Currently let under an Assured Short-hold Tenancy agreement generating a monthly income of £1,000.
