Full description

Straddling three great architectural and regal eras of Tudor, Georgian and Victorian, this Grade II Listed property has something for everyone.

Let’s start with the oldest part of the dwelling - built around the late 1400's, the reign of the first Tudor monarch, Henry VII. It was created originally as a convent and remained in church possession until the 1950s.

The second part of this impressive Cambridgeshire home was added in the early 18th century and expanded further in the mid 19th Century, the reign of Victoria.

Historical heritage aside, you may be interested in its practicalities?

Despite its quiet rural position overlooking a tributary of the river Nene (complete with anglers and longboats), the city of Cambridge is only a 45 minute drive away and travelling to London from Downham Market station takes under 2 hours.

The present owners are relative newcomers in the chronological footprint of this house, having moved in just 11 years ago. He and his family intend to relocate to a new area, as he is originally from Durham, and also downsize.

The house doesn’t just offer 3 acres, an enviable rural location and a wealth of history, but the property, you should note, has lapsed planning permission for half an acre of its grounds to be divided into four new dwellings.

Winkworth think this is both a home with history and one with great development potential.
