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, York's Tenement. It is sited on the foundations of a building constructed in the 1940s, 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. York's Barn would make a wonderful holiday home or, being located so close to the Heritage Coast and all that it 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, an assortment of antique shops and galleries, a primary school, two pubs, a café and two restaurants. It is also 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, just 4.5 miles to the south, which provides a good selection of amenities, including Waitrose and Tesco supermarkets, banks, doctor's 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 Station.

York's Barn provides simple but spacious accommodation. The entrance on the ground floor is through a pair of bespoke solid wood double doors with glazed toplights which open into the sitting/dining room, an impressive reception room with a large crittal window providing views to the front of the property and fitted with a woodburning stove with exposed flue. There is a door to an understairs storage cupboard, wall mounted radiator, spotlighting and door to the downstairs cloakroom with WC, wall mounted basin with tiled worksurface too side, wall mounted Heatray Sadia electric boiler with extractor fan. The kitchen/breakfast room has a large window to rear overlooking the rear garden, door providing access to the rear garden and stairs rising to the first floor landing. A range of bespoke cupboard units with tiled and wooden worksurfaces incorporating a butler sink and appliances, including an oven, dishwasher, washing machine and fridge/freezer. Matching high level storage cupboards, tiled floor, radiator, recessed spotlighting and TV point. First floor landing with built-in storage cupboards housing pressurised hot water cylinder, radiator and doors off to bedroom 1. A pretty double bedroom with partly vaulted ceiling and windows overlooking the front drive and gardens. Radiators, access to roof space, recessed spotlighting and TV point. Bedroom 2 with window providing views over the rear garden and countryside beyond. Partly vaulted ceiling, radiator, TV point. Bathroom with suite comprising panelled bath and tiled surround with Bristan mixer shower over, WC, and mounted wash basin with tiled surround and cupboard under, recessed spotlighting and extractor fan.

York's Barn is set well back from the road and is accessed via a right of way over a driveway retained by the vendors leading to the designated parking spaces. A right of way will naturally be granted also from the parking area to the main entrance at the front of York's Barn. At the side of York's Barn is a wooden gate set within high level close boarded fencing that provides access to the garden. This is fully enclosed and very private and being an open space is exposed to the sun throughout the day. Currently laid to grass for ease of maintenance, the area offers great potential for a keen gardener. It is of good size with an approximate width of 60' and a depth of 20'. 

AGENTS NOTE Prospective purchasers should note that the vendors will impose covenants within the sale contract to ensure that the exterior of York's Barn, together with the fencing enclosing the garden, is not altered, so as to safeguard the look of the curtilage of their retained property, York's Tenement, and to comply with the conditions of the planning consent.
