INTRODUCTION The barns, which are curtilage listed, at Hawkedon Hall Farm are located in the centre of the village with road frontage opposite the church and situated on the edge of a traditional farmyard.

The two barn conversions offer an excellent opportunity to create family homes in the popular village of Hawkedon whilst retaining the traditional characteristics of the Suffolk barns. The North Barn will provide 4 bedrooms and the West Barn will provide 3 bedrooms. 

DESCRIPTION The property comprises two timber framed buildings with access off the public highway into a shared drive and parking area. Planning Consent has been granted by St Edmundsbury Borough Council for the change of use and conversion of the traditional buildings to two separate dwellings with associated garaging and access.

The existing and proposed site layout is shown on the Plans within this brochure and further details are available from the Vendors' Agent.

WEST BARN The smaller of the two barns with consent for a 3 bedroom barn conversion with an entrance hall, open plan kitchen and living area, bedroom with en-suite and further WC. On the first floor will be a further bedroom with en-suite, family bathroom and second bedroom.

Current floor area - approximately 108 sq m (1161 sq ft)

PLANNING Full Planning Consent and Listed Building Approval was granted on the 23rd December 2013 for the change of use and conversion of the traditional barns to 2 separate dwellings with associated garaging and access (Reference: DC/13/0286/LB and SE/13/0925/FUL). Conservation Area Consent was also granted for the demolition of a more modern agricultural building and grainstore on the 23rd December 2013 (Reference: SE/13/0928/CAC).

Under the same Planning Consent, permission was granted for the conversion of the separate building for holiday lets, but this does not form part of the property being offered for sale.

There are two Unilateral Undertaking Agreements dated 23rd July 2013 and the 27th September 2013.

The Unilateral Agreement dated the 27th September 2013 requires a payment of £10,681.50 to be paid to St Edmundsbury Borough Council prior to the commencement of work. The purchaser is expected to settle two thirds of this prior to starting work on site, with the Vendor covering the other third. There are further obligations under this agreement relating to the retained land and buildings.

Since grant of consent, the Vendors have demolished the more modern agricultural building and started to dig foundations for the garage. This is considered to be the commencement of the development for the purpose of the Planning Consents granted.

Copies of the Consents and Agreements are available from the Vendors' Agent. 

ACCESS The ownership of the access (Coloured Blue on the Site Plan) to the buildings will be retained by the Vendor with the Purchaser having a right of way for all purposes to access the barns. The Purchaser will have the right to upgrade the surface at their own cost with future maintenance according to use.

It should be noted that there is a separate access to the farmyard. 

SERVICES Mains water and three phase electricity are connected to the property and the Purchaser will be obliged to install a sub meter and to ensure a supply of electricity is connected to the retained property. 

METHOD OF SALE The property is offered for sale by Private Treaty as a whole with vacant possession upon completion. 

RESTRICTIVE COVENANT The property is sold with a restrictive covenant requiring the site to be developed in accordance with the Planning Consents granted as referred to in these Particulars only, unless prior written consent is given by the Vendors, which will not be unreasonably withheld.
