    Retail, restaurant, leisure, day nursery opportunity


    The former cricket pavilion is a chalet type detached property, comprising of two wings and a central shared area. The property is of traditional masonry construction with a pitched tiled roof. The central tower is of timber framed construction with windows to the top of the spire. The two wings of the building were the former changing rooms. Currently the pavilion is unoccupied, however the proposal is to reinstate the building into a usable condition, suitable for a range of uses which will compliment the wider residential development that is to be built around it.


    Strictly by appointment with the agents.


    Cambridge is an historic university city with a population of over 130,000 people, including 25,000 students. The Darwin Green development is located approximately 1.6 miles north west of Cambridge city centre, accessed via Huntingdon Road, which is approximately 200m away and is one of the main arterial routes in and out of Cambridge connecting the city with the A14 and beyond. The Pavilion is situated at the front of the new development, off Huntingdon Road, one of the main roads leading into Cambridge's historic city centre. The Pavilion fronts The Pavilion Square which is one of the main focal/meeting points of the development. Other nearby amenities will include a new supermarket, six retail units, community rooms, a primary school, library, health centre and sports facilities.


    Offers are invited on an unconditional or subject to planning basis.


    Development Opportunity


    The approved land use master plan for Darwin Green identifies the Pavilion as an opportunity to restore it to residential use. However, It is believed that other uses which would compliment the wider development will be considered (subject to planning). The current application seeks to change the use to retail, covering A1 (retail) and A3 (restaurant and cafe), along with D1 (creche/day nursery).
