Advert Description

Back on the market again through no fault of ours or its.
Been let down 3 times now by buyers when the chain further down the line falls through - most recently a few weeks ago when our buyers buyer pulled out.
Our buyers still want the property but have no interest in theirs at present so hence why we are having to re-market ours.
It's a 3-4 bedroom house - detached in a quiet location.
Situated on the outskirts of Soham which is mid-way between Ely, Cambridgeshire and Newmarket, Suffolk.
The house does need some work done on it (new windows and sills needed, plus if you wanted central heating throughout, it would need a new boiler) - boiler is 100% in working order at present.
We've been here for 24 years so it's been a happy home for us but now need to downsize as soon as possible due to health reasons.
Has been run as a livery/stud yard and prior to that as a transport yard.
Has huge potential and an ideal project for someone.
Needs hands-on now with a bit of TLC to get it back to how it was before health problems set in.
There is no agricultural restriction but there is a covenant on the land which means no housing to be built.
You can extend the house with usual planning permission and you can build anything agricultural on the land - i.e. stables, barns, etc etc.
The grounds extend to approximately 7.5 acres - all post and railed and surrounded by blackberry bushes.
There are 16 stables, plus office/tack room, feed room, and large wooden outbuilding, plus 5 Horse Monarch Horse Walker in the main yard.
There is also a large barn with 4 internal stables and plenty of room to turnout, or storage for hay/straw or horsebox.
Some of the stables need a little work on them but have been until recently housing horses and are safe and secure.
The yard itself is very secure.
There is a loading ramp plus menege (needs topping up).
There is a very big front, back and side garden - laid to lawn and a very big U shaped drive plus single garage.
Ideal investment for livery yard or any other business, or just for pure personal use.
Has been reduced substantially in price since our first buyer and subsequent buyers and is now a give-away price.
The house has been surveyed by different buyers with no problems at all (save for above, and just a bit of re-pointing on back of garage), plus has also had a half day survey from equestrian surveyor on the land, stables, barns etc.
There are no certificates - i.e. electrical, boiler etc and we do not intend to get these.
All electrical work over the years has been carried out by qualified electricians and the boiler, as I've said above, would now been replacing.
Septic tank has now just been emptied (14.9.18) .
We are on mains gas, water and electric.
Septic tank drainage - which all the neighbouring properties also have.
No time wasters please - we are very keen to move as soon as possible so am looking for either cash buyer or someone who has sold and ready to do the deal immediately.
We've lost a lot of money over the past 16 months in legal fees on the sale of this and the purchase of other property which we sadly had to pull out of because of being let down by others, so am keen to get someone who doesn't tell me that they have the cash and then find out just before exchange that they are however many thousands short of the money!
It is now on with Morris Armitage estate agents in Newmarket and any viewings can be arranged through them or myself.
More photos are available on request.
