Potential development site comprising existing barn and waste ground in the desirable conservation area to the rear of Church Street in the centre of Gamlingay.
The existing barn extends in total to c1,300 sq ft gross external area. The extent of the land for sale amounts to c0.5 acres.
Gamlingay is 12 miles from Bedford and 14 miles from Cambridge. The property is located on the eastern side of Gamlingay to the rear of existing residential properties fronting Church Street close to the Wheatsheaf Public House and the church of St. Mary the Virgin. Gamlingay is four miles from Sandy with its access to the A1 and main line railway station, which has frequent trains to London Kings Cross.
A feasibility layout has been prepared by Matchbox Architects which is incorporated into the brochure and shows the existing barn converted into garaging or annex with a new single storey dwelling of c1,600 sq ft being constructed on the plot. It may well be possible to improve on the level of accommodation on the site. Matchbox Architects would be pleased to assist any potential purchaser in preparing detailed proposals.
The property is available on a subject to planning basis. The site is located partly within and partly outside the settlement policy area for Gamlingay. The area within the settlement policy area is also within the conservation area. The existing barn was originally within the curtilage of 53 Church Street which is a Grade II listed building. The existing barn has a lawful development certificate ref S/0906/11 for the garaging of 3 domestic motor vehicles. Our planning consultants have advised that it should be possible to secure a residential planning permission for the site subject to achieving a satisfactory design.
The prospective development proposals prepared by Matchbox Architects and included in these details show a proposed new single storey dwelling of c1,600 sq ft although it should be possible to incorporate an element of chalet style two storey by converting some or all of the loft space. It may also be possible to create further residential accommodation by converting all or part of the existing barn.
It is believed that mains drainage and all utility services are available to the site but prospective purchasers must satisfy themselves with respect to availability and cost of connections.
