Full description

Tenure: Freehold


The property represents a very rare opportunity to acquire an old blacksmiths shop situated in a rural location with potential for alternative uses. The main buildings has been unoccupied for many years and comprises a predominately brick built structure with timber cladding and pantile roof with the front part being a 1 ½ storey pitch measuring 3.95m x 9.03m with a single storey lean-to to the rear measuring 4.04m x 1.43m. The remainder of the property is overgrown with several mature trees and scrub and extends to approximately 0.43 acres (0.17ha).

The property is situated in a rural location within the village of Topcroft, at the junction of Church Road and Rookery Lane. There is a bus stop immediately outside the property. Topcroft is about 13 miles from Norwich the commercial shopping centre for the county with the mainline rail link to London Liverpool Street. The market town of Bungay is about 7 miles away with a wide range of shops and schools for all age groups, an 18 hole golf course and public swimming pool.

It is believed that mains water and electric are available nearby. Prospective purchasers should make their own enquiries with the relevant statutory undertakers.

The property is sold subject to an overage agreement which will run for a period of 10 years from the date of completion, and will require a payment of 50% of any uplift in value as a result of the granting of planning permission for residential use. For further details see legal pack.
