The property is set in a rural location between the villages of Cowlinge and Stradishall, approximately 9 miles from the world renowned horseracing town of Newmarket. Newmarket has an excellent range of local shopping and leisure facilities with further services available at Haverhill (8 miles) and Bury St Edmunds (14 miles).

Planning

Prior Approval (General Permitted Development) was approved by St Edmundsbury Borough Council on 27 January 2016 (ref DS/15/2450/PMBPA) to create 2 no. dwellings with a total gross internal area of approximately 2520 sq.ft. Copies of the planning documents can be downloaded from the St Edmundsbury Borough Council website or are available from the selling Agents.

Description

The existing building comprises a timber framed and weatherboard barn measuring 22.80m x 5.80m (externally) plus a central mid-stray and lean-to at the rear. The approved scheme for conversion of the building provides for the following accommodation:

Unit 1: Entrance lobby leading to vaulted Dining Hall; Cloakroom; Living Room; Kitchen; first floor galleried Landing; 2 Bedrooms with en-suite shower rooms. Approx. 1270 ft² GIA.

Outside the site extends in total to around 0.33 acres with a number of mature trees and pond. The scheme provides for off-street parking and landscaped grounds, with patio areas overlooking the pond.

The additional land comprises a single parcel of land extending to 9.59 acres immediately adjacent to the barn. The land is currently in arable use and has a number of mature hedgerow boundaries with good road frontage and separate road access.
