The Huntingdon office of Barker Storey Matthews - now part of Eddisons - has been appointed by the Royal Papworth NHS Foundation Trust as the agent for the sale of two sites on which former nurses homes stand on Church Lane in the South Cambridgeshire village of Papworth Everard.

The Queen Mary Nurses Home and the St Peter’s Nurses Home closed upon the relocation of the Royal Papworth Hospital to the Addenbrooke’s Hospital campus in Cambridge earlier this year (May). 

The Queen Mary property sits on a 1.63 acre site with a three storey, 55-bedroom residence extending to approximately 16,446 sq ft.  The St Peter’s property is on a 1.01 acre site with 39-bedrooms and buildings offering approximately 13,099 sq ft of accommodation in total. 

Both properties are being offered for sale as development sites with potential for refurbishment or redevelopment. 

With guide prices in the region of £1.4 million and £995,000, respectively, Barker Storey Matthews is inviting offers for the Queen Mary and the St Peter’s sites and properties by Wednesday 07 August 2019. 

Richard Adam of Barker Storey Matthews’ Huntingdon office is handling the marketing of both instructions.  He commented, “These are two well known buildings for which we anticipate good interest.  

“The sites will be of interest to a variety of buyers, including parties looking at either the refurbishment of the accommodation or possible redevelopment of the sites, subject to planning permission.  

“We are arranging various open days for parties wishing to inspect either property. Further information, including floor and site plans, is available on request for parties with qualified interest.”
