Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Entrance hall, bathroom, lounge, dining room and kitchen. Four first floor walk-through bedrooms. Off-road parking. Range of single storey barns and outbuildings. Garden and grounds of just over three quarters of an acre.  

Location Rose Cottage is situated on a small lane within the Parish of Wherstead. The lane provides direct access to Jimmy's Farm, which offers a farm shop, butchery, nature trail, farm park, restaurant and activities for the whole family. Wherstead itself is approximately 2 miles from the centre of Ipswich and provides comprehensive educational, recreational and commercial facilities, together with main line station and access direct to London's Liverpool Street Station, scheduled to take just over an hour. Alternatively, Manningtree is approximately 8 miles to the south, again with main line connections to London's Liverpool Street Station, scheduled to take 55 minutes. The A14 is close by, with links to Felixstowe, the east and the Midlands to the west, together with London via the A12 and M25.

There are excellent local leisure activities with sailing at the Royal Harwich Yacht Club and Ipswich's picturesque Marina. The nearby Suffolk Food Hall sells local produce and has a fantastic restaurant. Locally, there is a wide choice of excellent schools in both state and private sectors. 

Description Rose Cottage is a brick-built, Grade II Listed, period dwelling under a pantile roof. Bearing in mind the size of the grounds, it offers great scope for further extension, subject to the normal consents. The cottage itself requires general refurbishment, but benefits from UPVC double glazed windows and an oil fired central heating system. The property is situated on a small, yet highly convenient, lane and has grounds of three quarters of an acre. Within the grounds is a range of single storey barns. Neither the vendor or their agent have investigated whether Babergh District Council's planning department would look favourably upon an application to develop the barns for residential use. However, the property is being sold with an overage clause whereby if Planning Permission or Permitted Development is granted/gained for any other independent dwellings/holiday lets within the grounds other than Rose Cottage within the next twenty years, the vendors will receive 30% of the uplift in value. For the avoidance of doubt, overage will not be triggered by the building of any extensions, annexes or outbuildings associated with the current dwelling.
