Hillside, Orwell


A detached 3 bedroom house with an adjoining 0.2 acre, 800 sqm building plot with consent for a pair of three bedroom semis, looking out to farmland front and rear about 6 miles south west of Cambridge.

Hillside is a short residential row of houses on the outskirts of Orwell on the A603, near to the National Trust’s Wimpole Estate.

The property comprises a detached 1960s 3 bedroom house with a large side garden on which planning consent was granted in January 2018 for the erection of a pair of semi-detached houses of excellent individual design by Cambidge practice PIP Architecture.

The finished properties will each be around 106 sqm and in the current market would be expected to sell for around £425,000 each.

Full details of the consent can be emailed to interested parties or downloaded from http://plan.scambs.gov.uk/swiftlg/apas/run/wphappcriteria.display using the reference S/4061/17/FL

Hillside is on the A603, at the edge of Orwell a lovely, traditional Cambridgeshire village about 7 miles south west of Cambridge and a similar distance north of Royston.

The pretty centre of the village carries very little through traffic and its compact size gives it a close sense of community aided by a thriving primary school, handsome dining pub, general convenience store, post office and hairdresser.

There is a large recreation ground and a Parish Council owned hillside nature reserve that is a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest. A 15th Century Parish Church overlooks the village and there is a village hall and Methodist Church. There are tennis and football clubs, an am dram society, singing group, gardening group and golf society.

The National Trust’s Wimpole Hall and Home Farm are nearby and can be accessed by a network of footpaths running off Hillside and out into the countryside.

For the commuter the A603 gives easy access into west Cambridge by Barton Road or on to the M11 in about 6 miles. Royston’s mainline station gives access to Kings Cross frequently and quickly, often in under 40 minutes.
