Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Location Whilst within the Parish of Worlingworth, Moss Farm is situated almost equidistant from the villages of Tannington, Worlingworth and Bedfield, adjacent to agricultural land. Framlingham is approximately 6 miles from the property and offers a good selection of independent shops and businesses, including cafes, restaurants, hairdressers, antique shops, a travel agency and delicatessen. It is also home to The Crown Hotel, Barclays Bank and a Co-Op supermarket. Off the Market Hill are a number of others businesses providing day-to-day services, including pubs, vets, a medical centre and schools. Both Worlingworth and Bedfield have well regarded primary schools. The nearby larger village of Debenham has an excellent high school and further shops and businesses.

The property is only 19 miles from the coast as the crow flies with popular destinations such as Southwold, Dunwich, Thorpeness and Orford. The county town of Ipswich lies approximately 20 miles to the south-west and here there a national shops and services, together with a regular train service to London's Liverpool Street Station scheduled to take just over the hour. The town of Diss, 16 miles away, offers direct rail services to London, as well as Morrisons, Aldi and Tesco supermarkets.  

Description The farmhouse, which is Grade II Listed, is believed to date from the sixteenth century and is of timber frame construction with heavy rendered and white washed elevations under a tiled roof. It should be noted that an independent structural survey has not been commissioned by the vendors, but the property is dilapidated and requires complete renovation. The cottage, in more recent decades, has been used as two dwellings. On 28th October 2016, Mid Suffolk District Council's planning department granted Planning Permission for alteration and extension under reference 3252/16. Listed Building Consent was granted under reference 3253/16. This allows for renovation and extension as per the associated plans, extracts of which are included within these particulars.

The house stands in a pleasant position in rural countryside with grounds of 1.1 acres. The grounds are predominantly concrete yard and contain substantial dilapidated brick buildings, which do not have roofs. The main building measures approximately 45' x 43'. Permitted Development was gained on 26th October 2016 for a change of use from agricultural building to dwelling house, in accordance with the associated plans, extracts of which are included within these particulars. Interested parties will note that the plans allow for two semi-detached dwellings.

Copies of the Planning Permissions/Listed Building Consents/Permitted Development documents are available on the Mid Suffolk District Council planning website, along with the plans.  

Community Infrastructure (CIL) Payment With new dwellings/extensions being created, it is understood that a CIL payment of £115 per metre squared will need to be paid to Mid Suffolk District Council. We are lead to believe that the payment will be circa £61,000. Such a payment will be the responsibility of the purchaser, and interested parties should make their own investigations with Mid Suffolk District Council.
