Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Planning permission and Listed Building Consent have been granted for the conversion of The White Horse and outbuildings to provide two separate dwellings, together with the construction of three new houses on a site extending to just under half an acre (0.2 hectares) in all.

Location This prime residential development opportunity is located within Well Close Square, in the centre of the ever popular market town of Framlingham. The town 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.  In recent years Framlingham was voted the number one place to live in the country and is perhaps best known for its magnificent medieval castle, which is managed by English Heritage.

Framlingham is surrounded by delightful villages, many of which have popular public houses. There are lovely walks from Framlingham into the surrounding countryside, and amenities such as golf in nearby locations such as Cretingham (6 miles), Woodbridge (12 miles) and Aldeburgh (13 miles). The world famous Snape Maltings Concert Hall is within easy reach (10½ miles). There is also bird watching at the RSPB centre at Minsmere (15 miles). Framlingham is only 12 miles from the coast as the crow flies with the popular destinations of Southwold, Dunwich, Thorpeness and Orford. The county town of Ipswich lies approximately 18 miles to the south-west and from here there are regular services to London's Liverpool Street Station, scheduled to take just over the hour. There is also a railway station at Campsea Ashe, 7 miles to the south, with regular connecting services to Ipswich. 

Description Planning permission was granted by Suffolk Coastal District Council on 8th September 2016 for the change of use and conversion of a public house and outbuildings to provide two dwellings plus the construction of three new houses. The planning permission reference is DC/16/2115/FUL, a copy of which is included within these particulars.

The planning permission provides for the conversion of the White Horse into a substantial dwelling of over 4,000 square feet, with the principal accommodation offering up to six bedrooms arranged over three floors, together with additional accommodation (or adjoining annexe if required) to the rear. There will be a large courtyard at the rear, together with a south facing garden beyond.

Beside The White Horse is the Former Stable. It is proposed that the existing building will be retained and extended to provide a detached two bedroom dwelling.

Beyond the Former Stable, to the west, will be the two new build townhouses (Plots 2 and 3). These will be arranged over three floors with a double garage on the lower ground floor, with a kitchen/dining room, living room and decked area on the upper ground floor. On the first floor will be four bedrooms and a bathroom. Both properties will benefit from good size south facing gardens to the rear.

To the front of the site will be Plot 4, the Former Smithy. Despite the name, this will also be 'new build' and comprise a kitchen, bathroom and bedroom on the ground floor together with a large open plan living room on the first floor. Outside there will be a garden and parking area to the rear.

Extracts of the consented site plans are included within these particulars by kind permission of the architects, Hollins.
