Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The sale of Abbey Yard provides a unique opportunity to purchase a former agricultural building with Permitted Development approval for change of use to a single residential dwelling. The property is set on the edge of the popular village of Brinkley, on a generous mature plot extending to 1.25 acres or thereabouts, and benefits from superb far reaching views across open countryside.

Brinkley has a range of local amenities including a public house, village hall and recreation ground and is well located for access to Cambridge (12 miles) and Newmarket (5 miles). The university City of Cambridge provides extensive educational, recreational and shopping facilities with more local services available in the world famous horseracing town of Newmarket. Brinkley is well located for the A11 road network, with railway stations at Dullingham (3 miles) and Whittlesford (13 miles). Stansted International Airport is approx. 30 miles.

The existing building measures approx. 23.50m x 9.0m and is of portal concrete frame construction with part concrete block walling and fibre cement side cladding and roof covering. The site has a number of mature hedgerow boundaries and trees that add to the amenity value and provide a degree of privacy to the property.

The approved consent is subject to agreeing the final detailed design with East Cambs District Council, providing an excellent opportunity for the purchaser to create a unique architect designed dwelling.

A change of use from agricultural use to residential was granted by East Cambridgeshire District Council on 10th December 2015. A copy of the consent is available from the Agents, or can be viewed on the East Cambridgeshire District Council website under planning reference: 15/01226/ARN.

The vendors have commissioned a ground investigations survey as required by condition 1 of the Planning Consent, and the results of the survey have not identified any material which poses a risk to future site users. An application to discharge condition 1 of the decision notice has been made to East Cambridgeshire District Council and this condition has now been discharged.

It is understood that there is a mains water supply to the property, however no other mains services are connected.

The vendor and the vendors agents will do their best to specify the ownership of boundary hedges, fences and ditches, but will not be bound to determine these.

The property is available for inspection and the purchasers will be deemed to have satisfied themselves as to the ownership of the boundaries.
