Full description

Tenure: Freehold

York's Barn is a charming two bedroom detached house which was constructed to a high standard by the owners of the neighbouring property, Yorks Tenement. It is sited on the foundations of a building constructed in the 1940's, prior to which there was an old barn on the same site. In 2010 the vendors obtained planning permission for the construction of York's Barn which they went on to build in a traditional Suffolk style with the use of many reclaimed materials.

In recent years, York's Barn has been successfully let on assured shorthold tenancies and the ground floor has been used as an antiques gallery. The property includes an enclosed and very private garden which benefits from the sun most of the day. There are also included two designated car parking spaces within the gravelled area adjacent to the property. Yorks Barn would make a wonderful holiday home or, being located so close to the Heritage Coast and all that is has to offer, a second home or holiday let.

York's Barn forms part of the desirable village of Yoxford in an accessible location close to the Heritage Coast. Yoxford is a very popular village with a village store and an assortment of antique shops and galleries, a primary school, two pubs, a café and two restaurants. It is home to the annual Arts Festival held in August each year which features musicians, actors and poets with many workshops, master classes and exhibitions being held in the village. The village is located adjacent to the A12 trunk road giving it easy access to the north and south of the county as well as the nearby market town of Saxmundham at just 4.5 miles to the south which provides a good selection of amenities, including Waitrose and Tesco supermarkets, banks, doctors surgery, chemist, ironmongers and dry cleaners. The Heritage Coast is nearby with the popular coastal resorts of Aldeburgh, Dunwich, Southwold and Walberswick and the pretty villages of Westleton and Snape, the latter being home to the Aldeburgh Music Festival. The RSPB Minsmere with its fantastic coastal nature reserve is only 5.5 miles to the east. The nearby railway station at Darsham, which is within walking distance of the property provides regular services to Ipswich and London Liverpool Street.  

DIRECTIONS: Heading north along the A12 from Saxmundham, proceed through the village of Yoxford and the property will be found on the right hand side, just before the turning to Westleton and Dunwich.
