This early Victorian former Baptist chapel was built in 1842 and has full detailed planning to convert into a stunning 3 double bedroom property (REFS: S/2234/18/FL and S/2235/18/LB).

There will be a separate utility room, cloakroom WC and ground floor bedroom with an en suite shower room.

Outside there is a shared driveway which in turn will lead to a gravel driveway and pathway to the main entrance. Permission has been granted to reposition a number of gravestones.
A comprehensive video tour is available upon request from Cooke Curtis & Co.
Caxton is a small, attractive village about 10 miles west of the city boundary with easy access along the A428. It is surrounded by open countryside yet easily accessible and about equidistant from Cambridge, St Neots and Royston all of which have an excellent train service to London. The village is bypassed by the A1198, meaning it carries limited through-traffic.
It is within the catchment of the Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ rated primary school at neighbouring Bourn which feeds the high-achieving Comberton Village College and there is a similarly well rated nursery in Bourn also.
Caxton has a number of local facilities including a church, village hall and a popular Thai Restaurant and Bar.Further day-to-day facilities, including a major supermarket can be found in the next, larger village of Cambourne, the centre of which is less than 2 miles by car or 1.5 on foot.
