About this property


An opportunity to acquire a parcel of land with a range of outbuildings in a quiet and picturesque location, in close proximity to the River Great Ouse and with views of Ely Cathedral.

The property features a flat and level plot which is laid to grass/scrub, a vehicular gate from the access road, and is bounded by fencing and mature trees, while also abutting farmland.

There are two main buildings, one of which includes stable boxes, and both are of timber construction beneath corrugated sheet roofs. The land and buildings benefits from mains water and electricity connections.

It is understood that this was formerly the site of a Chapel. It is believed that the Chapel was dismantled in 1571 and that some of the stone may have been used in the construction of St. George's Church, Little Thetford.

Location From the centre of Little Thetford, proceed along Main Street to Holt Drove. Cross over the railway line (taking all necessary precautions) and continue along the track. The property can be found on the left hand side, just before the riverbank.

Planning The property benefits from a Certificate of Lawfulness for Existing Use as a Dwelling house. The certificate was issued in May 2016, following the submission of information to prove that the site has been in use as a residential dwelling.

Potential purchasers should make enquiries of East Cambridgeshire District Council regarding potential uses.

A planning application for 2 dwellings has previously been rejected, but the established use as a dwelling remains.

The land is sold subject to an Overage Clause. See Legal Pack for details.
