LOCATION Cottenham is a well-served village situated about 6 miles north of Cambridge and about 4 miles from access onto the A14, which in turn links to the M11 and M1. The village offers a wide variety of local amenities including playgroup, primary and secondary schooling, selection of local shops, dentist and doctor's surgery.
The site is well placed for access to the village and enjoys a mature wooded setting offering a good degree of seclusion, to the rear of 354 High Street, Cottenham. The access to the site is via Ellis Close, just off the High Street and near the village green.
PLANNING Outline planning consent (Ref: S/0582/18/OL) was granted by South Cambridgeshire District Council on the 11th April 2018 for the erection of two detached 1 ½ storey (rising to 2 storey) homes if around 1900 sq. ft, (180 sq m) with associated access, along with modifications and extension to the existing property (No.13 Ellis Close).
The overall site extends to around 0.3 acres (edged red on the attached plan). The mature setting offers a green backdrop to the site and once developed will create a truly unique scheme, tucked away in a peaceful village setting. The plans have been carefully considered to ensure that the properties do not overlook the neighbouring homes, whilst ensuring they offer practical sized accommodation to meet modern day needs.
EXISTING PROPERTY 13 Ellis Close is a two bedroom semi-detached single storey property with accommodation that comprises entrance hall, living room, kitchen, two bedrooms, bathroom. The property is currently tenanted, although it would benefit from general modernisation, as part of the consent, the property has permission for a rear extension. The existing side porch and garage will need to be removed to create the new access and once the development is complete the property will have an enclosed rear garden and off-street parking to the rear.
RESALE VALUES We have studied the approved drawings for the three dwellings and are of the opinion that the site once developed is likely to have a GDV in the region of £1,700,000, subject to specification and design.
