Property Description

Eldernell Farm lies to the east of Peterborough, north of the A605. It is situated approximately 600m north east of the village of Coates, and is accessed via Eldernell Lane, which is a ‘No through road’ terminating at South Bank and the Nene Way. The Nene Washes lie to the north. Whittlesey is the nearest town, and is approximately 3 miles to the west. It is an attractive Fenland Market Town, with a good range of services and amenities. Peterborough lies approximately 10 miles to the west, and from here there is access to the major road networks including the A1. Peterborough also has a Mainline Railway Station from where services to London take approximately 1 hour.

There are a number of residential and commercial properties along Eldernell Lane, but otherwise, Eldernell Farm is located in a primarily rural area. The Nene Washes which lie immediately to the north are designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest and also a Protected Wetland Site important for the overwintering of bird life. The Nene Way runs along the South Bank, of the Nene Washes.

The total area of the site is approximately 0.725 acres (0.29 hectares). The site is accessed by an existing entrance off Eldernell Lane. The site comprises a range of traditional farm buildings of varying construction. The principal barn is timber framed with weatherboard cladding, whilst the other buildings are of brick construction covered with varying roof materials. The buildings are primarily orientated east/west, with the Nene Washes lying to the north, and open countryside lying to the south. The opportunity exists to create an extremely pleasant, private and rural residential scheme in a unique countryside environment.

It is believed that mains water and electricity are available in the vicinity of the site. Prospective Purchasers should satisfy themselves regarding connection costs by contacting the relevant service provider. A Drainage Strategy has been prepared for the site and is included within the Information Pack.

Offers in the region of £300,000 are sought subject to contract.

The site has the benefit of Detailed Planning Permission (F/YR17/1028/F) granted by Fenland District Council on the 24 May 2018. The approved scheme allows for the conversion of the existing buildings together with an element of new linked development, to create three single storey residential properties. Two of the properties are designed as three bedroom dwellings and the other as a two bedroom dwelling. The existing access is to be utilised, and the properties will enjoy a private enclosed courtyard area to the rear with parking provision. Each property will also have a private garden. A copy of the Planning Permission is available in the Information Pack detailed below, and prospective purchasers should note the conditions attached to that Planning Permission. These include a requirement to provide a passing bay along Eldernell Lane, as well as erecting a wildlife tower, to provide alternative nesting and roosting for barn owls in the area which utilise the buildings at present. Further details of the wildlife tower are also available within the Information Pack. This is to be built on the vendors’ retained land, with rights being granted to the purchaser. The purchaser may also be required to provide nest boxes and similarly the vendors will consent to these being erected on their retained land.
