A theological institute in the centre of Cambridge is on the market, with offers sought in excess of £5 million. 

Agents Savills say the period property at 12-14 Grange Road occupies a prime location and could be repurposed for a range of uses including residential, education, healthcare and leisure.

The 1.12-acre site lies within the West Cambridge Conservation Area and includes a large three-storey former Edwardian house with rear wing extensions from the 1960s and 1980s, as well as a chapel, detached coach house and extensive gardens.

The property is currently used as a theological college – providing specialist theological education and open learning opportunities for both individuals and groups.

It offers courses, study days, workshops, seminars and conferences, while there are also 36 rooms used as student accommodation alongside offices, a library and a teaching space.

Richard Janes, head of development at Savills Cambridge, said: “The sale of Grange Street provides an exciting opportunity to purchase a freehold asset.

“The building is superbly placed and subject to planning it is suitable for a range of uses – from education and residential through to healthcare and leisure to name just a few.

“We anticipate high demand for this site due to its location and the scarcity of available properties of this size in the immediate area.”

Ed Meyer, head of residential said: “Grange Road is a prime Cambridge address, with residential homes a rare commodity and usually selling far in excess of £1 million. Set within the Newnham area of Cambridge, it’s a ten-minute walk to the Sidgwick site of Cambridge University and is also near to Newnham, Wolfson, Darwin, Clare Hall and Selwyn colleges as well as the university’s West Cambridge Site. It is also close to both Kings and St John’s schools and within easy reach of the city centre.”
