Full description

This fine home in a well-established central Cambridge cul-de-sac has Building Consent not only for re-development of No6, but also owns consent for an additional & independent 4,000sqft detached house on No6's adjoining land at No7.

This means the new owner of No6 can choose whether to sell or to develop its exceptionally valuable No7 land.

One can move into No6 immediately, or re-develop the property so as to move in during springtime 2017.

The superbly located No6 freehold property already has Full Planning Permission for two homes:

• to beautifully enhance the existing detached house at No6 Pearce Close, forming a total of 2,000 sq-ft / 186 sq-m of internal living space


• to build an additional and entirely independent 4,000 sq-ft / 380sq-m new detached-house, on the remaining land that is called No7 Pearce Close, i.e. the adjoining freehold land that is immediately north of, and owned by, No6.

All the No6 property comes with Clean & Clear Title to the Freehold, i.e. there are no Restrictive Covenants applying to any part of the property.

The new owner can apply to alter/tailor the current Planning Permissions to suit their own wishes; the Cambridge City Council Planning Department aims to respond within 8 weeks.


No6 Pearce Close house in its existing-form for sale today, is a 1983 detached 4-bedroom home with 1,530 sq-ft / 142sq-m of internal living space, set amid simple gardens, with driveway parking.
Services: Mains water, gas, electricity and drainage
Local Authority: Cambridge City Council Tax band F


The current Planning Permission for the re-development inside & out of the No6 house creates an elegantly curving-roof for the two-storey extension, and adds a Study-Bedroom above the tree tops. This versatile arrangement provides 3 or 4 Luxury-Bedrooms, a gorgeous triple-aspect Kitchen-Diner, three real fireplaces, and some lovely spots to work from home.

The gravel driveway will park two large cars, your bikes are well provided for, and the secluded Backgarden is sun-blessed from the east & south. An oak-framed Glass-Roof Conservatory, (you do not need building-permission for this), would be a fitting addition and the finishing-touch to a welcoming home of 2,000 sq-ft / 188m².
See the proposed Floorplans & Computer Images.


The current Planning Permission is for an entirely new and unique home on the No7 land, providing 5 or 6 Luxury-Bedrooms over four sunlit floors. The top floor is reserved entirely for the Principal Bedroom suite which enjoys a concealed roof-terrace and real fireplaces.

This fabulous home offers 4,000 sq / 380sq-m ft of indoor living-space, has a south-facing walled garden + a bike-yard, and capacity for two large family vehicles in the garage and car port, all with excellent access to the quiet cul-de-sac road.

See the proposed Floorplans & Computer Images for No7, which is advertised as a separate property located further down this 'Residential Properties' page you're already on. The land + plans are advertised as 'Offers over £1,100,000 Pearce Close, Newnham, Cambridge.'

The plans proposed for both 6 & 7 were created together by local Cambridge Architect, Angus Jackson, in collaboration with Cambridge University's Lecturer in Well-being, Dr Nick Baylis. The two homes have been considerately designed to complement each other, and to nurture the well-being of growing families.
