Land with potential for a variety of uses (subject to planning)


Fleam End Farm is situated adjacent to open farmland and a mature tree belt close to the edge Fen Ditton, a popular village. It is located approximately 1.75 miles from the historical city centre.


Fleam End Farm measure approximately 2.4 hectares (6 acres). The site is accessed via a private track from High Ditch Road on the left hand side.

Lot 1
The cottage is situated to the far end of the driveway and comprises rear hall, utility room, kitchen, study, dining and sitting room, bathroom along with 2 bedrooms. The property is dated, and is currently occupied on an Assured Shorthold Tenancy.

Lot 2
The driveway currently leads into additional land (Lot 2) which is currently designated green belt and bordered by mature tree belt and hedgerow to the south and east. There is a 90m frontage to High Ditch Road. The land includes a range of basic redundant agricultural/light industrial buildings, which are partially occupied by a commercial tenant and a verbal tenant. Vacant possession of all units is achievable with 3 months notice. Mains water, drainage and electricity is available. There is a public footpath which runs diagonally through the site.

An application was prepared by DPA Architects for the redevelopment of the front part of the Property in lot 2 for 12 dwellings. This was withdrawn in December 2015 following initial feedback from the Council since the Property is located within the Greenbelt. South Cambridgeshire District Council (SCDC) have a 40% affordable housing policy on schemes of two or more dwellings. The emerging local plan for SCDC suggests that this threshold will be raised to three or more dwellings, if adopted.

Tenure & Possession
The land is offered freehold with vacant posession.

Guide Price
The Property is available by private treaty. The vendors preference is to sell the property as a whole, although bids for the individual lots will be considered.

The guide price for both lots is £1.5 million. This Property has development potential, subject to the relevant consents.
