Fulbourn Old Drift, Cambridge


A substantial detached house with large attached workshops and a 0.23 acre plot, offering brilliant possibilities for home business use. Conveniently located adjoining greenbelt countryside on the south east edge of the city.

Fulbourn Old Drift is a no-through-lane off Gazelle Way at the edge of Cherry Hinton close to the Tesco superstore and within walking distance of the village High Street.

The house was originally a Victorian railway cottage and was comprehensively rebuilt and updated when the current owners bought it in the 1970s. Large workshops were added to the side at this point to accommodate their business vehicles and provide storage and these offer great potential for a variety of business uses now or conversion to additional accommodation, subject to planning. There is one main workshop of about 10.85m x 6.1m / 35ft 7in x 20ft which has a high ceiling and large folding metal door and a second of about 11.45m x 3.05m / 37ft 7in x 20ft with a mezzanine storage area above. The total area of the workshops is about 100sqm / 1090sqft and they could store up to 8 cars.

The main house is traditionally arranged around a central hall and staircase with two reception rooms either side at the front and a large kitchen /breakfast room and further reception room at the rear. Behind the kitchen is a lean-to porch. The first floor has four good size bedrooms and a large wet room.

The house adjoins the lane along one side with secure pedestrian and vehicle gates opening on to a driveway that gives parking for a number of vehicles and leads past the house to the workshops. The main garden is in front of the house and is about 37m / 120ft long.

The property would benefit from some general updating but has been well maintained and has gas fired central heating to radiators. It is offered for sale with no onward chain.
