A single residential building plot with planning consent for a three-bedroom detached "period" style house in a highly sought-after village. Proposed accommodation: entrance hall, sitting room, kitchen/breakfast room, dining room and cloakroom. First floor master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, two further double bedrooms and a spacious family bath/shower room. Driveway and parking, side and rear gardens and a detached single garage. THE PROPERTY The plot extends to approximately 0.09 of an acre (0.04 of a hectare) sts and is situated in a peaceful position set back from the village road just off Upper Green in Felsham. Planning consent was applied for under application 920/04 on the 21st July 2004 and following the refusal notice on 12th October 2004, was granted on appeal under appeal number app/W3520/a/041155835 and extended in December 2010. The planning consent is now granted in perpetuity as the consent required works commence within 3 years and the house to the front of this site, formed part of the same consent and works commenced on that within the necessary 3-year timeframe. - there is no statutory period in which the development must be completed. The original application allowed for the erection of two detached dwellings, the plot for the front one having been sold separately and the archaeological survey completed. We are offering the plot for sale as outlined edged in red on the attached site plan on the front of the brochure. There is permission granted for the construction of a detached two storey dwelling house on the plot with a detached garage. The elevations show a vernacular style village house with rendered elevations on a redbrick plinth under a predominantly clay tile and pan tile roof. The detached garage features weather boarded elevations which, in a barn style, compliment this very appealing design. The consented accommodation shows an entrance hall, kitchen/breakfast room, sitting room, dining room and cloakroom and on the first floor a master bedroom would benefit from an en-suite shower room and the two further double sized bedrooms would be served by a family bathroom. The plans produced by Kilngrove Architects numbered 3442-10 are attached at reduced form, to these sales particulars and our calculations indicate a gross internal area of approximately 1,500 sq ft. (139.37 sq m) excluding the garage. Purchasers should confirm the size of the dwelling by their own calculations prior to exchange of contracts. LOCATION Felsham is an attractive and popular Suffolk village which benefits from a fine parish church, popular public house and well stocked village shop and post office store. More comprehensive facilities can be found in the market towns of Stowmarket and Bury St Edmunds or the village of Lavenham, all being equidistant from Felsham and approximately 8 miles away. There is good access, being 6 miles from Junction 46, to the A14 and for the rail commuter a fast and regular service operates from the mainline station at Stowmarket into Londons Liverpool Street. The plot, which is broadly rectangular in shape sits in a conservation area and is accessed over a private drive off Upper Green, Felsham, adjacent to Mausoleum House, a fine late 18th century house which occupies an imposing position on the Green.
