Agent Notes
There are 20 solar panels on the roof of the garage with 4.8 kW batteries, in the warmer months this powers the majority of the properties energy consumption, and feeds back into the grid. When the heat pump was installed, the owners were eligible to claim an RHI grant. This has been paying the current owners £274.65 per quarter and is payable until 7th June 2028. This stays with the property, so can be transferred to any new owner to continue to claim.

Location - Wicken
Wicken is a picturesque, rural village on the edge of the Fens in East Cambridgeshire, 10 miles north east of Cambridge, and 5 miles south of the cathedral city of Ely. 

The village is home to the internationally renowned National Trust Wicken Fen, one of Britain’s oldest nature reserves. This biodiversity hotspot is located a short distance from the village centre and is rich with wildlife, offering trails, boardwalks and bird-watching facilities.

The village hall regularly offers open events, and regular Sunday teas are held in the church, chapel, and hall. There is a traditional 13th-century thatched public house, The Maid’s Head, serving food on the village green and hosting regular exciting events and activities. There is also the rare example of a fully operational smock windmill dating from 1813, which still grinds flour and is open to the public to explore on the first Saturday of each month.

Wicken benefits from a wide range of clubs and societies, including a baby and toddler playgroup, a local brass band, an amateur football club, and a flower and produce show committee with classes for children. 

The village’s proximity to Soham, Newmarket and Ely means residents can access many other amenities, including the train stations offering regular services to Cambridge, London Kings Cross and Ipswich. The A11 and A14 are also easily accessible and provide access to Cambridge and Bury St Edmunds in less than 30 minutes.

If you’re looking to purchase in the area, we highly recommend giving this lovely village a visit!
