Ensum Brown are delighted to offer for sale 'Dottrell Hall Farm', a unique and rare opportunity to acquire a substantial detached Victorian home with accommodation in excess of 2100sq t, 12 acres of land and a range of outbuildings and barns with the potential for a variety of commercial uses or for potential conversion into dwellings, all subject to planning permission.

Located off the A505 between Royston and Duxford and within the civil parish of Fowlmere, this location is ideal for access to Royston, Cambridge, the M11, Stansted airport or to commute by train to London Kings Cross from Royston or several local village stations. You approach the property via a private driveway with the offering on your right-hand side, you will immediately see the before mentioned range of outbuildings and barns, we will detail this more below and in our floorplans. The property itself is a Victorian detached farmhouse that offers extensive and flexible accommodation that has been regularly updated and offers extremely well-presented accommodation throughout.

You step into an entrance hall, ideal for kicking off the muddy boots after a day on the land or from a countryside walk. The ground floor comprises of two main reception rooms, a snug or perhaps a study if preferred, with a feature fireplace and a very generous lounge with windows on two aspects making it feel very light and airy, once again has a feature fireplace. What is a very pleasant surprise, is when inside you can hardly hear the road noise from the A505, the home is double glazed with thick walls and being well insulated.

The heart of this home has to be the re-fitted kitchen/dining room, a generous space where you could spend much of the day as a family if you wished and a great space to entertain. There could easily be space for a seating area within the room if desired. The kitchen is fitted with a bespoke range of wall and base units with a solid woodwork surfaces, ceramic Butler sink and a central breakfast island. Integrated appliances include an eye level BOSCH double oven and electric hob with extractor over, SMEG dishwasher and space for an American style fridge/freezer. This delightful room is completed with tiled flooring and inset ceiling spotlights. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a useful utility room for additional storage and appliances and also a cloakroom with w.c.

Going to the first floor this home continues to impress and again feel extremely spacious. There are four generous double bedrooms and an extremely generous master bedroom with feature vaulted ceiling with wooden beams. The master bedroom benefits from its own luxury re-fitted en-suite bathroom with a four-piece suite in white that includes both a bath and separate shower cubicle. The other bedrooms all share use of a family bathroom, again with a three-piece suite in white including a bath with shower over.

One of the main attractions of this offering is certainly the outside space and the existing buildings on the land. The grounds stretch overall to approximately 12 acres with acres of flat meadow land, ideal perhaps for farming, grazing, paddocks or future development. There are a variety of outbuildings, barns and sheds, all of which you can see on our separate floorplan, which includes sizes of each. You have 4 very large buildings, 'Pole Barn', 'Large Barn', "Cattle Barn" and 'Long Barn'. In addition, you have a building consisting of cart sheds and stables, a car port with adjoining mess, bike shed and garden shed. Several are fully enclosed, have brick walls and watertight roofing.

There is so much potential with this variety of buildings, including commercial uses and potential streams of income and we believe very likely that conversion to dwellings on one or several will be possible with precedents already set-in nearby locations. This offering is sold without any permissions and is for the new owners to pursue at a time of their choosing, if desired, following completion of the purchase.
