Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Permitted Development has been granted for the separation and conversion of the barns to create three contemporary detached dwellings with large gardens, located in a delightful rural setting. Each of the proposed dwellings will provide three bedrooms and occupy a site, in total, of approximately 3.4 acres (1.37 hectares). 

Location The barns will be found along a quiet country lane in a delightful rural location, just a short distance from the centre of the rural village of Brundish. Brundish benefits from a popular public house, The Crown, together with a community centre and the village church, St Lawrence. The neighbouring village of Wilby has an excellent primary school. The well served village of Laxfield is within 4 miles and this has a small Co-operative store, two public houses, including The Kings Head (known as The Low House), and a primary school.

The property is only 4 miles from the sought after medieval market town of Framlingham, which is best known for its Norman castle. Framlingham is home to a good selection of independent shops and businesses including cafés, restaurants, hairdressers, antique shops, a travel agency and delicatessen. It is also home to the Crown Hotel, Barclays Bank and a Co-operative supermarket. Off the Market Hill are a number of other businesses providing day-to-day services including pubs, vets, a medical centre and schools. Sir Robert Hitcham's Primary School is highly regarded and Thomas Mills High School is considered one of the best state schools in the East of England. There is also Framlingham College, which is served by its prep school, Brandeston Hall, some 5 miles away.

The town of Diss is 16 miles from the property and offers Tesco, Morrisons and Aldi supermarkets, as well as a range of smaller shops and services, and a railway station offering direct services to London's Liverpool Street station. The county town of Ipswich is approximately 20 miles from the property and the Heritage Coast, with all it has to offer, is just 17 miles away. 

Description Permitted Development was approved by Mid Suffolk District Council on 19th January 2016 for the change of use of former agricultural buildings to residential dwellings. The permitted development reference is 4151/15, a copy of which is included within these particulars.

The approved plans that accompanied the planning permission provide for the conversion of the barns to three contemporary designed detached dwellings, which are all similar in design. Extracts of the approved plans are included within these particulars.

Currently, the barns share an entrance with Dairy Farm House, which is being retained by the vendors. However, it is the vendor's intention to create a new access within the adjoining field as per the indicative site plan included within these particulars. The vendor will install the new access between exchange of contracts and completion, to a standard of rolled hardcore. Should a purchaser wish to improve the finish of the access, this will be permitted, but at the purchaser's costs.

Each of the proposed dwellings will benefit from large gardens, with the site extending to approximately 3.4 acres in all. Ultimately, a future purchaser will determine how the external boundaries for the proposed dwellings will be configured, but potentially Unit 1 would benefit from the largest of the plots, extending to circa 2 acres in all. Garaging and store facilities could also be accommodated within the former agricultural buildings on site, but this is subject to the necessary consents.

Being relatively modern barns, of (seemingly) cavity brick construction under pitched pantile roofs with high level crittall style windows, it is intended that the proposed conversion will be contemporary in its design. The approved plans allow for large open plan reception rooms with large fully glazed doors opening onto the gardens at the rear. The rear part of the barns will be double height, with the proposed first floor accommodation only being created within the front range. The vendors have also commissioned the architects, Brooks Architects Ltd, to produce building regulation drawings. This will allow a purchaser to start work immediately on site if required. Copies of the building regulation drawings are available on request. 

Services We are advised that mains electricity and water are currently available on site, although prospective purchasers should satisfy themselves in this regard. Drainage will be via private treatment plants. 

Covenants & Restrictions The vendors will be retaining Dairy Farm House, although they would give consideration to a disposal of the site as a whole. The purchaser will be granted a right of way over the new access, at all times and for all purposes, but subject to a fair contribution towards the upkeep and maintenance of the access.

The owners will also impose a covenant that prevents the site from being developed for more than three dwellings.

Currently the septic tank serving Dairy Farm House is located on land intended to be sold. However, the vendor will relocate this onto the retained land within 12 months of the sale completing. The vendor will not be obliged to remove, make good or backfill the septic tank once it has been disconnected. 

Fencing The purchaser will be obliged to install a new boundary fence between points A and D on the enclosed plan within 12 months of the sale completing. The design/style of the proposed fence will be agreed between the vendor and the purchaser, but it will be to a minimum of 6' close boarded fencing for the boundary between points B and C, and post with two rails for the boundary between the paddock/gardens.
