4 bedroom detached house for sale

Long Melford, Suffolk

Sold STC £400,000

Property Description

Full description

1920s industrial building with planning permission to convert into a residential house.

Situated within this highly regarded and well-served attractive village, this former malt roasting house was built on the site of some old cottages sometime around 1925 for the Melford Malt Co. Ltd, with an attractive grey-brick façade, together with a brick- and timber-framed rear ‘wing’.

It ceased operating in the mid-1960s, when it was bought by the building firm H.C. Janes Ltd in 1965, who converted it into offices. It was used by them until the mid-1970s. In 1978 it was bought by Mr A McKirdy, who fitted it out as a workshop for church organ building/restoration and maintenance. It was also used to restore chamber organs and other keyboard instruments, as well as some restoration of antique furniture.

For the last twenty-three years it has been used for the production of high-quality miniatures for dolls’ houses, bespoke furniture and fitted kitchens/bedrooms, etc. and is now offered for sale due to the retirement of the present owner.

The property has recently obtained Residential Planning for a single residential unit, which could potentially exploit the exceptional features and nature of the building, as the existing spaces and open-plan styling would make quite an extraordinary house, drawing industrial influences together with contemporary living.

The grounds extend to around 0.192-acre (sts), and bordered by mature hedging, trees and fencing. This area is also currently used for off-street parking.
