Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Entrance hall, sitting room, kitchen/breakfast room, dining room, conservatory, study, snug, bathroom, utility area, cloakroom and rear porch. Three bedrooms and bathroom. Double garage/workshop and stores. Garden. 

Location The Firs will be found in the centre of the village of Knodishall, fronting onto the Leiston Road. Knodishall is a well regarded village which benefits from a shop, garage, public house and primary school. Secondary schooling is available in Saxmundham, about 3 miles to the east, where there are further facilities including Waitrose and Tesco supermarkets, as well as rail services to Ipswich and some direct trains through to London's Liverpool Street station.

The Heritage Coast is within 2 miles with the popular coastal towns of Thorpeness and Aldeburgh, with Southwold a short distance up the coast. The County Town of Ipswich lies about 20 miles to the south-west. 

Description The Firs is a period property that has been extended and reconfigured over the years. It extends to approximately 1,615 square feet in all.

The current vendor has owned the property since 1994, and during that time has undertaken a scheme of renovation works, although not all of those works have been completed. The vendor has commissioned a condition report of the building, a copy of which is available on request.  

Planning Outline planning permission was granted by Suffolk Coastal District Council on 18th February 2016 for the erection of two new dwellings to the rear of The Firs to include improvement to the existing vehicular access to form a shared vehicular access. The planning permission reference is DC/15/5037/OUT, a copy of which is available on request. A copy of the proposed site plan, which accompanied the planning permission, is included within these particulars.

The purchaser of the building plots will be obliged to erect boundary treatments between the development site and The Firs within 6 months of the sale completing. This will be to a minimum of 6ft close boarded fence with concrete posts and gravel boards. There will also be a contractual obligation for the developer to complete the construction of the two plots within 24 months of the sale of the site being finalised. In addition, there will be a covenant in favour of The Firs preventing the development of the site for anything more than two houses.

The Firs will benefit from a right of way, at all times and for all purposes, over the new shared drive, subject to paying a fair proportion towards the upkeep and maintenance of the drive. However, it will be the developer's obligation to construct the drive. The owner of The Firs will also be granted the right to lay and connect into any services located within the drive.
