Full description

Tenure: Freehold

DESCRIPTION Listed Grade II as being of architectural or historical interest, the house (subject to the relevant planning consents) offers tremendous potential to justify the outstanding position the property enjoys. Approached over a long driveway the immediate grounds to Broad Green Farm extend to approximately six acres with a further eight acres being available if required by separate negotiation. This is a renovation opportunity and a great deal of hard work, not to mention a significant financial outlay stands between the successful purchaser and the finished utopia…!  

SITUATION Located a fifth of a mile down a driveway which serves Broad Green Farm and the adjacent Broad Green Cottage, the position of the farmhouse provides the occupants with a most pleasing degree of privacy and seclusion. Chevington is situated approximately seven south west of the Cathedral town of Bury St Edmunds with its excellent range of schooling, shopping, recreational and cultural facilities.
