Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Plans offer accommodation spread over two storeys with an abundance of openings (existing and envisaged) affording an amazing amount of natural light throughout. The footprint of the wooden lean-to will be kept and re-built in Burwell whites (brick) and/or clunch and will provide a very spacious kitchen/family room with double oak-framed doors opening onto a walled kitchen garden. Also on the ground floor: a large entrance hall, study, utility room and lounge with a chimney as a provision for a wood-burner. Oak-framed double doors will open onto a walled garden from the lounge. Upstairs, under vaulted ceilings and oak beams, and  flooded with natural light, are the master bedroom with en-suite and two other spacious bedrooms with bathroom between them. On the south end, a tall French window with a Juliet balcony. 

The Barn 

Tunbridge Barn is a very substantial, structurally-sound, Grade II listed, clunch barn with full planning permission for conversion into a desirable three-bedroom country dwelling in the picturesque and well-situated village of Burwell in Cambridgeshire.

The barn sits in a comfortable plot of 7000 sq ft, well back from the road, and is secluded at the front by a mature evergreen hedge and by mature beech and chestnut trees on the south. Access will be gained through the hedge on one side with a drive leading to a two-car oak carport on the opposite side. The rest of the area will be framed by a brick and clunch wall, providing the surrounding enclosed gardens.

Located on the Low Road, Tunbridge Barn enjoys an enviable and unique position as, on the one hand, it is within walking distance of the centre of the village and on the other hand, it is situated on the edge, as Low Road marks the boundary between village and surrounding green belt. The barn sits within the beautiful estate of Tunbridge Farm, a Grade II listed, 16th century manor house.

Planning Consent 
FULL planning permission was granted by East Cambridgeshire District Council in April, 2015 for the conversion of a listed barn into a residential dwelling. Details are available on the Council's website : http//, reference number 15/00108/LBC. The emphasis is to bring the barn back into active use and preserve the unique historical features which make this building so special. As it stands today, most people agree that is extraordinary; no doubt, conversion will transform it into breath-taking.

Burwell is a friendly, attractive and vibrant village with a strong community spirit with a full range of amenities at hand: schools, churches, library, surgery, shops and pubs. Nearby are Anglesey Abbey and the extraordinary natural wildlife reserve that is Wicken Fen to explore. Also, nearby is Newmarket, the home of British horse racing and bloodstock. Within easy commuting distances are Ely, Bury St Edmunds, Cambridge and London, Burwell is an ideal place to settle.

No services currently connected however planning for connection to gas, electric and mains water.
