Description

OPPORTUNITY TO CREATE A DESIRABLE COUNTRY RESIDENCE NESTLED IN A 4.2 ACRE RURAL IDYLL WITH EQUESTRIAN FACILITIES AND A TWO BEDROOM CONVERTED STABLE YARD.

Formally part of the adjacent ‘Potash Farm’, a striking Suffolk farmhouse, which itself has recently been totally rebuilt, Potash Farm Barn is of traditional timber-frame construction with outline planning permission granted for conversion into a substantial four bedroom dwelling. Not a listed building, the barn is very much a ‘blank canvas’ with immense scope to be transformed from the ground up into a desirable family contemporary country residence: the ultimate turnkey dream development. Additionally a self-contained two bedroom annexe stable yard conversion comprising a large open-plan living room / kitchen and shower room could be used for multiple purposes: for immediate occupation while converting the large barn complex, as further bedroom accommodation, as a separate annexe for a relative or groom or to derive an income from (subject to the necessary consents).

Situated at the end of a long (0.5 mile) sweeping drive among rolling Suffolk countryside, a high degree of privacy and seclusion is guaranteed – with only one neighbour – complemented by breath-taking views across farmland towards a picturesque woodland beyond. In all, private grounds extend to approximately 4.25 acres (subject to survey).

Incorporating equestrian facilities to include part converted stable yard with two loose boxes and a tack / feed room, plenty of lorry parking, large purpose-built manège, two established post and rail paddocks with water connected.

LOCATION:

Potash Farm Barn is situated equidistant between Sudbury and Bury St. Edmunds on the outskirts of the hamlet of Thorpe Morieux (pronounced M’roo) – a small group of houses and a church, set in undulating countryside of the River Brett valley – one of the last places in Suffolk you cannot hear the hum of distant traffic.

FULL DETAILS:

On 24th April 2018, outline planning permission was granted by Babergh District Council for conversion of Potash Farm Barn into a residential dwelling. With partial first floor rooms already in situ, the barn currently extends to approximately 267m² (2,875ft²).
