Full description

A 0.25 acre / 0.1 ha individual building plot with consent for a superb detached house of about 300 sqm / 3200 sqft GEA, set at the north edge of the village, about 5 miles west of Cambridge.

The plot stands at the edge of the village, close to the north end of Highfields Road and its junction with the old St Neots road. It is the mature former front garden of Leylands, an individual, detached single storey property set in about half an acre and the plot is being divided in two, with the owners retaining and living in Leylands.

Planning consent was granted at appeal in July 2016, ref: S/2889/15/FL

The land is currently mainly vegetable garden with timber sheds and a timber garage that will require demolishing. The house will stand towards the front of the plot with a double garage in front and the driveway passing by and leading on to Leylands. This orientation gives the new house a generous, south facing rear garden and a total plot size of about 0.25 acres / 0.1 hectares. The boundaries of the site are mature and keep it well screened from its neighbours and the road.

Planning consent was granted in August 2016 for an individual, four bedroom house of about 300 sqm / 3200 sqft GEA with some stunning design features including a vaulted reception hall with a galleried landing over and an open plan living kitchen measuring over 10 m / 32 ft long.

Highfields Caldecote is an appealing established community about 5 miles west of Cambridge and is well served by a local shop, primary school, social club and village hall. There is also a petrol filling station and further shop just at the edge of the village.
