About this property

  • The Lakes is a select, private development of just five properties, situated just north of Cottenham in an attractive rural location.

    The property itself backs south onto a delightful private lake which is partly owned under the tile of the main house. The property is approached via a gravel driveway to which it has a right of way over.

    Lake House is a 2-storey property sitting in grounds of approximate 0.58 acres (un-measured) in total and is not in a conservation area nor is the house listed. Accessed via a gated entrance where there is parking and turning, a double garage and a front and rear garden. The existing floor area of the main house is 3,488 sq. ft. and the annexe 918 sq. ft.

    The main two storey property has undergone a partial programme of disability adaption building works in respect of planning application 21/03096/HFUL which were suspended early 2023 leaving the main property in an uninhabitable state. The self-contained annexe has been refurbished with new a kitchen/ bathroom and flooring.

    Mains services of electricity and water are connected. A separate Klargester for drainage and LPG provides central heating and hot water.

    Planning permission was granted 15th February 2023 to demolish the existing dwelling house and erect a new five bedroom detached property for an applicant who required wheelchair access and 24 hour care. The new house would have a total GIA of 2,666 sq. ft.

    Planning application number 22/03763/FUL. Any purchaser would need to make their own enquiries with the local authority should they plan to redevelop the site.
