Property Summary

CHATTERIS is an ancient market town (reputedly the last refuge of Boadicea as she fled from the Romans) and has a population of about 9,000. It has a good range of facilities including primary and secondary schools. The city of Ely, which has rail links to Cambridge and London, is about 12 miles to the south-east. Other nearby centres of population include March (9 miles north); Huntingdon (15 miles south-west) and the city of Peterborough (18 miles north-west).

THIS 3 BEDROOM DETACHED HOUSE is believed to date from the 1970s and has brick elevations with an interlocking tiled roof.

Until recently the property has been in mixed use as a residence with plumber's yard and stores and is suitable for continued occupation by a similar trade.
