Chippenham

Chippenham is a small village located on the Cambridgeshire/Suffolk border, located approximately 18 miles from Cambridge, 4 miles from Newmarket and 11 miles from Ely. With a population of circa 500 persons, the village has a range of facilities and activities including St Peter's Church, tennis and cricket clubs, a public house (The Tharp Arms) a traditional local hostelry. The village is centered around the Chippenham Park Estate and Chippenham Hall. Primary schooling is available in the nearby villages of Fordham and Kennett, with a range of nurseries and middle and secondary education establishments within a three mile drive in Newmarket.

Snailwell, Chippenham and surrounding villages are renowned for their connections with the training and breeding of race horses, this arising from the proximity of the villages to Newmarket Race course and the Jockey Club presence in the area.

The Property

The property, which is known as Park Farm Barn, comprises a large partially constructed new dwelling, which offers the opportunity to create a stunning character residence. It is located approximately one mile to the south east of Chippenham on the Snailwell Road, and forms part of a small cluster of rural housing all of which historically formed part of Park Farm.

Benefiting from impressive views over adjoining open fields, the barn sits on a plot which has an area of 0.274 Ha (0.68 Acres).

Accommodation

Park Farm Barn offers the opportunity to create a superb dwelling with a range of character features. The property is a partly constructed new dwelling, though the timber frame, which is non structural, has been recovered from the original Park Farm Barn which was blown down many years ago and was a Grade II Listed Building.

The approved plans which are reproduced within these sales details provide for living room, open plan kitchen/diner,
and four/five bedrooms, two of which benefit from en-suite bathrooms. In addition, the roof space is already partially
converted to living accommodation. An indoor swimming pool with full height vaulted ceiling was shown in the original plans, but the current owners had decided against this, and intended to use this area as a games room and family area.

The information above reflects the accommodation as set out in the approved plans. The internal arrangements may be configured differently to suit individual preferences, subject to planning and Listed building consents being obtained as necessary. (NB. The agents have been advised by the owners that no Listed Building Consent will be required for internal alterations as long as this does not affect the timber frame). The total built floor area measured on a gross internal basis is approaching 5,000 sq ft including the loft space.

Planning

Full Planning Permission for the conversion of Park Farm Barn was obtained on 9th May 1996 under LPA Ref: E/96/0217/F. Listed Building Consent was also granted at this time under Ref: E/96/0218/LB. There are various conditions attached to both the Planning Permission and Listed Building Consent.

It is understood that all conditions have already been satisfied and the planning permission has therefore been implemented and saved. The relevant documentation in this respect is included in the Information Pack - see below.
Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) In light of the fact that the planning permission was granted in 1996 and has been implemented, no CIL liability will attach to this development.

Access

Access to the property will be via the existing private gravel driveway serving the other dwellings within the cul-de-sac. The property is to be sold with the appropriate rights of way over this access route.

Services

It is understood that all mains services are either already connected to the property or supplies are readily available. The agents have been advised that foul drainage is already connected to a septic tank which is located close to the garage. It should be noted that the adjoining properties also discharge foul waste into this septic tank. There is a sharing arrangement in place which deals with the costs of maintaining and emptying this. It is intended that surface and storm water will discharge into soakaways. Whilst it is understood that all necessary approvals have been obtained in relation to drainage, this is subject to the proviso that the purchaser must satisfy itself in this respect.

Prospective purchasers will also be expected to satisfy themselves as to the availability and adequacy of other supplies by making their own enquiries to the relevant service company/authority. Please note that there are a range of reports, quotations and assessments available connected with the proposed electrical and mechanical installations within the building. These are included in the Information Pack.

Information Pack

An Information Pack, which includes various plans, documents, planning permissions, surveys, title information, quotations, technical assessments and other reports is available upon request.

Price

Unconditional offers are invited for this exceptional freehold opportunity. Guide Price: 570,000*.

VAT

It should be noted that Park Farm Barn is a new dwelling and not a conversion of an existing building. Accordingly, it is understood that a refund of VAT on building materials and services can be claimed back from HMRC - see www.gov.uk/vatbuilding-new-home/overview.

Viewing

An initial external inspection of the site and dwelling can be undertaken without prior appointment. Please however carry a set of these details to hand when visiting the site. Internal viewing of the building is by arrangement with the Sole Agent Barford + Co on 01480 213811.
