Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Sitting room, study, kitchen, shower room and two first floor bedrooms. Adjoining outbuilding. Grounds of 2.7 acres.  

Location The property is situated between the villages of Hollesley and Shottisham but is officially with the Parish of Hollesley. The village has a thriving community with a well supported primary school, shop and Post Office, public house, village hall where local GPs hold surgeries, recreation ground, church and community bus service. The village of Melton, just over 6 miles away, offers free parking at the railway station, which is on the Ipswich-Lowestoft East Suffolk Line, as well as additional services including a butcher, a whole foods shop, laundry and petrol station.

Woodbridge, just 8 miles away, is probably best known for its outstanding riverside setting. It is a very popular market town, offering a good choice of schooling in both the state and private sectors, a wide variety of shops and restaurants, a cinema/theatre and marina. Both Melton and Woodbridge benefit from rail links to Ipswich, where direct rail services to London's Liverpool Street station take just over the hour. The popular Heritage Coastline destinations of Orford and Aldeburgh are approximately 9 miles and 15 miles respectively, with the coast at Bawdsey and Shingle Street being 3 to 4 miles. The county town of Ipswich is approximately 16 miles to the south-west. 

Description The house, which is believed to be of timber-framed construction, has rendered elevations under a slate tiled roof. It is envisaged that an incoming purchaser will either carry out a complete renovation project, possibly extend the property or will apply for planning permission to demolish the existing dwelling and construct a new house.

The property is in a pleasant location and stands in grounds of 2.7 acres. Part of the land is cropped and let under an annual Farm Business Tenancy to a local farmer. Whilst it may be possible to obtain vacant possession sooner, interested parties should assume that the farmer is most likely to require holdover of the agricultural land until after harvest 2019.

The property is being offered to the market by private treaty but it is envisaged that there will be strong interest which may result in the agents requesting informal tenders by a set date.  

Overage The property is sold subject to an overage clause whereby if Planning Permission or Permitted Development is granted for any further dwellings within the grounds within the next twenty years, the vendors will receive 30% of the uplift in value. For the avoidance of doubt, the overage will not be triggered by constructing a replacement dwelling on the site, or building an annexe or any outbuildings including stabling.
