Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Location The site will be found to the rear of The Firs, which is located 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 Outline planning permission has been granted for the construction of two detached dwellings benefitting from garaging and parking. The suggested dwellings could potentially extend to approximately 1,700 sq ft (160 sq m) and 1,900 sq ft (180 sq m) on a site of approximately 0.6 acres. 

Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) The two proposed new dwellings will be subject to the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL). This will be determined and clarified at the detailed planning stage, but will be calculated on the rate of £150 per square metre. Based on the indicative drawings provided the CIL payment could potentially be in the region of £50,000 to £60,000. Further information on CIL is available from Suffolk Coastal District Council's website -

Services The Firs benefits from all mains connections including gas, water, drainage and electricity. However it is not known whether these services are of sufficient capacity to serve the two new dwellings and prospective purchasers should satisfy themselves in this regard.

Proposed Contractual Obligations and Covenants The purchaser of the site will be obliged to erect new boundary treatments and gates enclosing The Firs. The exact detail of the fencing is to be agreed with the vendor of The Firs, but will be to a minimum of 6ft close boarded fencing with concrete posts and gravel boards. The boundary treatment/fencing will need to be constructed within 6 months of the sale completing.

The purchaser of the plots will be obliged to install the shared driveway, with the owner of The Firs, and their successors in Title, benefitting from a full right of way over it, together with the right to connect into any services within it. The owner of The Firs will be obliged to contribute towards any future maintenance and upkeep of the shared drive.

The sale contract will also include a provision stating that the proposed dwellings must be completed within 24 months of the sale of the site completing. The vendor will also include a covenant to ensure that only two dwellings are built on site.
