General information

General information This substantial detached residence occupies a predominant position opposite Christchurch Park, a short walk from Ipswich school. It is offered to the market for the first time in many years having been a former family home and in later years converted to provide first floor commercial use and second floor apartments. The ground addition to the rear has created an annexe space. Substantial renovation works would bring this residence back to its former glory and create a generously proportioned family home.

As an alternative use this property has been granted full planning permission for the conversion to six two bedroom apartments, which include demolition of existing single storey extension and re-modelling of the garage. Full details can be reviewed on the Ipswich Borough Council website. The application reference number is IP/17/00532/FUL. All of the apartments would have parking and the two on the ground floor would enjoy their own garden space.

Planning permission was also sought for a three bedroom detached house in the rear garden, which in this instance has been declined. These grounds are available by separate negotiation. Plans attached offer an insight into the current layout and plans for the conversion to apartments. It is quite simple to see from these images and window positions how the original house may have been laid out and what could form a re-modelled family home. Traditionally these properties have four principle rooms on each floor with bathrooms and scullery. There is a useful cellar and to the rear of the residence is a single storey annexe with sitting room, dining room, bedroom and bathroom.

The outside The property is enclosed on three sides by a traditional red brick wall. The driveway leads into a generous parking and turning area for numerous vehicles which is enclosed by border shrubs and mature trees. There is an attached double length garage with brick construction with up/over door and power connected.

The rear garden has been sub-divided into three areas. Immediately to the rear of the property there is a paved patio and lawn with border shrubs and panelled fencing to the rear. Beyond is an additional formal garden available by separate negotiation and which planning permission has recently been refused. It is laid to lawn with border shrubs and enclosed by brick walls.

To the far end there is a further area of uncultivated ground behind three garages, which is also available by separate negotiation. The grounds enjoy a Westerly facing aspect.

Where? Henley Road lies on the Northern side of Ipswich, a stones throw from Christchurch Park with its 85 acres of parkland, mansion and tennis courts. Further South is the town centre, which offers an excellent range of shopping facilities, coffee houses and bars and beyond is the thriving Waterfront and marina. This property lies within the Northgate school catchment and is on the doorstep of Ipswich School. A short walk through the park takes you to St. Margaret's primary school.
