A once in a lifetime opportunity to purchase this stunning plot with planning in an idyllic and tranquil setting on the periphery of the Huntingdonshire village of Brampton.
The plot which abuts the golf course measures approximately 3.6 acres and includes a lawned area, woodland and a small stream with jetty. It is a very short stroll to the river and the highly regarded Brampton Mill pub and restaurant.
The approved planning is to create a luxury 4/5 bedroom family home with a double garage with studio/office accommodation above. There is also further scope to convert, under permitted development, the additional outbuildings into a leisure complex and pool.
Within the woodland spinney there are two further outbuildings with vehicular access which have potential (STPP) for replacement and the creation of a creative retreat or annexe.
Huntingdon town centre is less than one mile away and offers an array of shops, a regular market, high speed rail links to London and Peterborough as well as Hinchingbrooke hospital and highly regarded local schools.
This unique Victorian timber bungalow stands on its own large acreage of land surrounded by ancient woodland. Peaceful and idyllic, it is very close to The River Great Ouse, although very secluded at the same time it is very close to Huntingdon Mainline Rail Station, ten minutes by car. It is a superb, handy location for all main amenities.
During the 1960s the owner spent her honeymoon at the nearby Brampton Mill, a Guest House at the time. She was so impressed with the amazing location when the opportunity arose in 1986 to purchase the property it was done. The large barn complex was used for cattle and horses in the past and more recently has been used for storage. The space and freedom of this plot was great for the owner's family growing up with a tree house to play in, a stream to go boating in and it was also a lovely setting for parties. Holmeclose is also a great place to enjoy the changing seasons and is a haven for a variety of wildlife.
It is now time for the next chapter in the owner's life and is an opportunity for another family to build a home in a unique location and have a wonderful lifestyle.
The village has a good selection of shops including a post office, health services and several public houses to enjoy an evening out. Brampton Park, an 18-hole golf course, is just a few minutes away. The Memorial Playing Fields has a multi-use games area and the Memorial Centre is a popular venue for community and private events. Sitting in open countryside Brampton and nearby Hinchingbrooke Park provides access to many walking routes for ramblers and dog walkers to enjoy.

For London commuters, Huntingdon mainline rail station is about two miles away and provides fast trains into London King's cross in approx. 50 minutes. There is also a regular bus service through the village with services to Huntingdon and St Neots.
There are two Ofsted rated Outstanding day nurseries within the village and the Brampton Village Primary School is Ofsted rated Good, a little further afield is Buckden CofE Primary School (about 2.5 miles) which is Ofsted rated Outstanding.
