Property Insight
Ensum Brown are delighted to offer for sale this opportunity to renovate or develop a home on this nicely sized plot of land in Bassingbourn. Due to fire damage, the property in situ requires significant works and currently benefits from a village location, an enclosed spacious garden, and driveway parking. Cash purchasers only considered.

The property currently in situ was a spacious home at around 1800 sq ft, and new buyers have the potential to renovate or develop a property along the same size, extend, or create a completely unique and bespoke residence, as required.

To the ground floor, there is currently a spacious lounge with windows and double French doors to the garden, a spacious dining room with windows and a door to the side and rear, a nicely sized kitchen with a utility space, a cloakroom and a large double garage with side access. To the first floor, there were 3 well-proportioned bedrooms, integrated storage and wardrobes, a family bathroom, an en-suite to the master, and access through to the storage space above the garage. All of these features can be rebuilt very easily within a plot of this size, extended and/or improved upon.

To the rear, the garden is very spacious, fully enclosed in fencing and with a new family home being built, this will offer a lovely area for new owners to sit and enjoy the sun, have family meals and entertain guests. New owners could also increase the footprint of the house by extending more into the garden.

Bassingbourn is a pretty parish village, located in South Cambridgeshire, a couple of miles north of the town of Royston and just 14 miles from the city of Cambridge. The village is fortunate to have a network of 24 public rights of way extending over 13 miles, and another 1 mile of permissive paths, where landowners give permission for the public to walk. The network of paths gives ample opportunities for circular walks, and footpaths also link the parish with Whaddon, Melbourn, Litlington and Abington Pigotts.

The village has a number of facilities and shops, including a doctor's surgery, a dental surgery, a garage, sub-Post Office, coffee shop, chemist, hairdressers and general grocers. It also has two remaining pubs: The Hoops, occupying a 17th-century building in the village, and The Belle (formerly the Pear Tree) at North End. On the edge of the village, you will find located Bassingbourn Village College, Bassingbourn Community Primary School and Bassingbourn Pre-school, providing a continuation of education from the age of 2 1/2 up to school leaving age.

The Church of St Peter and St Paul is a stunning building with a rich history - older than the Church of England itself - and is pleasantly situated near the centre of the village, in an excellent rural setting among trees and hedges. There is a busy service schedule and many activities for residents of all ages to attend.

The village's proximity to Royston means that residents have access to the town's many other amenities, such as the mainline train station offering regular fast services to both Cambridge and London Kings Cross. There is also a leisure centre, sports clubs, dentist's surgeries, and highly-regarded schools for all ages. Also, from Bassingbourn, you can pick up the train line from the neighbouring village of Meldreth. The A1M and M11 are within a 20-minute drive via the A10/A505, and London Stansted and Luton Airports are both 30-minutes away.
