Iken is a small village situated within the Suffolk Coast & Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, close to the River Alde estuary and with Tunstall Forest to the west.

Snape village and the popular coastal town of Aldeburgh are 2.5 miles to the north west and 8 miles to the north east respectively. Woodbridge is 12 miles and the county town of Ipswich 20 miles to the south west.

The property is situated on Snape Road between Fazeboons and Facons Bottom Farm.

The property comprises a traditional timber framed barn, approached via a shared driveway, the site being shown edged red for identification purposes only on site plan opposite.

The building is believed to have been constructed in the late 16th/early 17th century with later additions. The main barn is constructed with a low plinth wall and timber frame with timber cladding, under a pan tile roof and accessed via large double doors to the front and a further pedestrian door to the eastern flank wall. A small lean-to structure with brick walls is attached to the west gable.

A range of outbuildings adjacent to the main barn doors are of timber frame and brickwork construction under a pitched pan tile roof and provide a workshop and four further stores at ground floor level. Stairs from within the main barn and also one of the stores provide access to a refurbished first floor area, understood to have been previously used as a gymnasium.

A single storey block of three further outbuildings adjoin the eastern flank wall of the main barn, constructed of brick and blockwork under a pitched pan tile roof.

The grounds of the property include a surfaced yard in front of the main barn, a fenced and surfaced tennis court and further open ground to the rear of the barn.

Refurbishment Works
Previous refurbishment works appear to include the re-roofing of the main barn and the installation of a new concrete floor. The first floor area benefits from the installation of velux windows, plastered/decorated walls and ceilings and the installation of fluorescent lighting. One of the lean-to areas of the main barn has been similarly refurbished.

According to our measurements the property provides the following approximately gross internal floor areas:

Main barn: 2,731 sq. ft. (253.75 sq. m.)

South outbuildings (workshop & 4 stores): 1,363 sq. ft. (126.67 sq. m.)

Total gross internal floor area: 5,168 sq. ft. (480.22 sq. m.)

The mains electricity supply serving the adjoining dwelling and holiday let also currently serve the property and will be disconnected in due course. The purchaser will therefore be responsible for contacting the relevant utility companies to arrange a separate electricity supply and any other services required, including water and broadband connections. It is anticipated that foul drainage could be accommodated via the installation of a private drainage system within the grounds of the property.

The solar panels upon the roof of the property are owned by a third party and will be removed in due course, unless acquired by the purchaser by separate negotiation.

We have not tested any of the services and all interested parties should rely upon their own enquiries with the relevant utility companies in connection with the availability and capacity of all of those serving the property including IT and telecommunication links.

Planning consent was granted on 30th March 2017 for the conversion of the property into 5 letting units and the erection of a pavilion building (reference DC/16/3167/FUL). Further details are available via the local planning authority's website: This planning consent has now lapsed although the property is still considered suitable for redevelopment and conversion for a variety of alternative uses and all interested parties should make their own enquiries with the local planning authority.
