Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Entrance hall, sitting room, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, study, rear hall/utility room and cloakroom. Four bedrooms, bathroom and separate WC. Good sized driveway and integral single garage. Gardens and grounds extending to approximately 0.5 acres in all. No forward chain. 

Location The Rectory will be found on the outskirts of the charming rural village of Brampton and with rear gardens surrounded by agricultural land. Brampton benefits from a primary school that is currently 'Good' rated by Ofsted and Stoven Hall Veterinary and Rehabilitation Centre. There is also a 'request stop' railway station on the East Suffolk Line, linking to Ipswich to the south and Beccles to the north. Brampton is located approximately 5 miles to the north of Halesworth, 6 miles to the south of Beccles and 6 miles north-west of the popular coastal village of Southwold. Halesworth benefits from a good range of services together with a railway station. Beccles, also known as the gateway to the Broads, also offers a good range of independent shops, restaurants, cafes and other services, again including a railway station.

There are numerous recreational activities available locally including sailing and water sports on the Heritage Coast or Norfolk Broads, bird watching at the internationally renowned RSPB Minsmere and golf courses including those at Halesworth and Southwold. 

Description Believed to date originally from the 1970s, The Rectory offers well laid out, light and spacious family accommodation occupying a generous plot on the outskirts of the village.

Despite some recent remedial works, including redecoration, replacement oil fired boiler and new oil tank, together with replacement UPVC windows in, we understand, 2003, the property now warrants further renovation and refurbishment throughout. Given the size of the garden to the rear, The Rectory also offers tremendous scope to be extended and remodelled, subject to the necessary consents.

The property benefits from photovoltaic panels on the roof. These are owned by a third party, Triple Point, but will be sold, unencumbered, with the property, together with the benefit of the agreed Feed in Tariff and subsidised electricity. 

Certificate of Structural Adequacy Interested parties should note that The Rectory has suffered from some structural issues in recent years. The vendor, the Diocese of St Edmundsbury & Ipswich, has commissioned repair works following completion of which a Certificate of Structural Adequacy was issued by the surveyors overseeing the works. The cause of the damage was deemed to be clay shrinkage caused by nearby trees. These trees have now been removed. This may be an issue for some lenders and insurers, and we encourage prospective purchasers to research this at the outset.

Beside the front door and covered porch, steps lead down to the front garden.
