About this property

Detailed Description

The main building is double height and was built by the Papworth Hall Estate in 1901 to educate the children on the estate. It is of brick construction and was extended throughout the 1900s which added three single storey extensions. There is a detached single storey brick and tiled pitched roof building at the rear of the site which is believed would originally have been a toilet block. The property was most recently used as a county music school (Use Class F1) and has been vacant for several years. The property requires extensive refurbishment and upgrading.

The main building sits centrally and set back from the road with a tarmac playground to the front and rear, with the front previously used as off-road parking. The toilet block is situated along the rear boundary of the site. The site has an established hedge along the road frontage and generally hedges and greenery around the boundaries.


The village of Papworth Everard is located 10 miles west of Cambridge, 8 miles east of St Neots and 6 miles south of both Huntingdon and St Ives. The village offers a mixture of both period properties and more recent developments.

The village offers a wide variety of amenities including a Village Hall, Church, Veterinary Surgery, Doctors, Post Office, Sports Clubs, Primary School, Library, and convenience stores such as a Co-op. Leisure and retail opportunities are well served in the city of Cambridge along with further health clinics, restaurants, and employment opportunities.
Papworth Everard is conveniently located for road links via the A1(M) and M11 (North/South) and A14 East/West with Huntingdon Rail Station approx. 7 miles away and St Neots Rail Station approx. 8 miles away (Peterborough - Kings-Cross).
