Property Description

GUIDE PRICE £250,000

An exciting opportunity to acquire two farm buildings with Full Planning Permission for the Change of Use to a single Residential Dwelling with an adjoining B1 Business use building situated within a plot of approximately 0.55 acres (0.22ha).

The building with consent for conversion to a Residential dwelling is a steel framed building with part concrete block walls and part open fronted under a corrugated sheet roof.

The building with consent for conversion to a B1 Business Unit is a timber framed building with part concrete block walls under a corrugated sheet roof.

Permission has been granted by Mid Suffolk District Council reference DC/20/04570 dated 24th December 2020, for the change of use and conversion of the steel framed barn into a residential dwelling with approximately 1,800 sq.ft of accommodation together a useful building extending to 2,150sq.ft with consent for B1 Business usage. We are informed that no CIL charges are payable in respect of the development.

The buildings and land are located between Stradbroke (2.5miles), Laxfield (1.5miles) and Fressingfield (3 miles). There is open countryside to the rear with the remaining farm premises to the north. Permission has been granted for a separate dwelling on the remainder of the site and it is anticipated that this will be constructed in the near future and at that point the agricultural use of the site will cease.

From the centre of Stradbroke head east on the B1117 towards Laxfield, after 2.75miles bear left onto the B1116 signposted Fressingfield. The barns will be found on the left hand side after a short distance.

We understand the property does not have the benefit of any services. Electricity is available nearby. The nearest water main is some distance away and it is anticipated that a private borehole would be more cost effective but prospective purchases should satisfy themselves of the location and availability of services and make their own relevant enquiries. There is no mains drainage and therefore a package treatment plant would be required as part of the development.

The buyers will be granted a right of way at all times and for all purposes over the area shaded green on the enclosed plan. The buyers will be responsible for a 50% share of the maintenance costs in respect of this area. The property is sold subject to and with the benefit of all existing wayleaves, easements, quasi-easements, rights of way, covenants and restrictions whether mentioned in these particulars or not.

The Freehold is offered for sale with Vacant Possession.

Included insofar as they are relevant and are owned in the freehold, subject to statutory exclusion.

An area to the north of the property as shown shaded blue on the enclosed plan of approximately 1.40acres (0.57ha) is available for purchase by the buyer of the barns at a fixed price with possession being available from 1st September 2021, either;

i. £50,000 without the mobile chicken shed.
ii. £60,000 to include the mobile chicken shed

The buyers would be required to fence the new northern boundary with post and three strands plain wire within 6 weeks of completion.

Potential buyers will note the mobile chicken building to the north of the site. The vendor has confirmed that they will not be re-stocking the shed once the current flock has left in July 2021.
