Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A rare opportunity to acquire an unconverted brick & timber built barn with detailed planning permission (Mid Suffolk/Babergh Ref: DC/18/03891) to convert to a two bedroom detached dwelling on a plot of approximately one quarter of an acre. The dwelling overlooks a pond in an idyllic position adjacent to Crow Hall which is surrounded by rolling Suffolk arable fields and is equidistant to the villages of Willisham, Offton & Somersham and is approximately 8 miles from the county town of Ipswich.

The Barn does not currently have services. The purchaser would need to put in place a treatment plant for foul water drainage along with an electricity and water supply. We are advised by the vendor that UK Power Networks have previously quoted £1,675.00 to install a new 100 amp electricity connection. Anglian Water have quoted £2,870.00 to provide a new water connection (quote valid until 31/03/2019). The neighbouring properties have BT fibre broadband with speeds of 40mb and we understand there is a spare capacity on this line. We also advised that as a condition of the planning approval, a bat licence and Bio Diversity Enhancement strategy must be completed before building works commence. It is estimated this will cost between £600 - £900 and will take 4-6 weeks to complete.

The plans show that the accommodation will include: an open plan kitchen/dining/living room on the ground floor together with a shower room, utility room and study. On the first floor, there will be two bedrooms and another bathroom. To the eastern end of the property will be an integral garage and there is to be a sizeable area of decking overlooking the pond.

The adjacent Crow Hall has been fully renovated recently and the conversion of Halls Barn is nearing completion. The Stock Barn is being converted at present so Pond Barn will be the last of the conversions within this exclusive group of four exceptional dwellings.

About The Area
Willisham is ideally located for access to Ipswich, Stowmarket and Hadleigh.
The village falls within the Claydon High School catchment area and there is a broad choice of primary schools locally to include: Elmsett C of E, Ringshall School and Somersham Primary School. Neighbouring Offton boasts a traditional country public house; The Limeburners, whilst in Somersham the Duke of Marlborough public house has been purchased by the community and has been enthusiastically welcomed by the local community.

The thriving county town of Ipswich is set on the River Orwell and has undergone an extensive gentrification programme in recent years, mainly around the waterfront, and has become popular with rail commuters to London (journey time 65 minutes). There are a wide range of shopping, commercial and leisure facilities including a full range of sports clubs and societies, restaurants and high street stores.
