Detailed Description

Manor Farm provides an architecturally designed courtyard style development of five detached dwellings. The development will appeal to those seeking to move from the town to the country with space around them whilst also appealing to those looking for modern living accommodation. The adjacent Grange farm development was designed by the same architect and has been praised for the quality of its design.


Great Raveley is a charming village in Huntingdonshire, known for its picturesque countryside. The village benefits from a broad blend of traditional as well as modern architecture and scenic landscapes. Positioned north of Huntingdon and St Ives in Cambridgeshire it has easy access to the recently upgraded A14 connecting to Cambridge and the A1, with mainline train services available in Huntingdon.


The site is located to the east of the village of Great Raveley in a superb rural setting with outstanding views across the Cambrideshire countryside. There are open arable fields to the south and south west, an area of grassland to the east and the original Manor farmhouse located to the west. The site comprises a group of agricultural barns and farmyard of
approximately 0.546 Ha (1.35 acres) located south of Raveley Road. The block of grassland to the east of the barns which sits between Raveley Road and Huntingdon Road is approximately 0.247 Ha (1 acre) and may be available by separate negotiation.
