Lot No: 4
Longfield, High Street, Hopton, Suffolk IP22 2QX
Location: This property is set centrally within the Conservation Area of the popular village of Hopton. The village has a good range of day-to-day facilities including a mini market, public houses, church, dentist, plant centre and primary school (Ofsted 'outstanding'). With its location, Hopton provides good access to a choice of further education in the state and private sectors in Suffolk and Norfolk. The surrounding countryside is very attractive and offers numerous walks with Knettishall Heath just a short distance away where three of the country's long distance walks meet. Hopton is well placed for a number of larger towns and cities including Bury St Edmunds (12 miles), Diss (10 miles), Norwich (27 miles) and Cambridge (42 miles) with the journey much easier now with the A11 fully dualled and there are train stations at Diss and Thetford with commuting access to London (Liverpool Street and Kings Cross).
The Property: It is understood that Longfield once served as a village shop but most
recently as a private residence. Over the years the property has been updated with upvc windows and the accommodation has been altered to cater for the occupier’s needs with a ground floor shower room being added, but the property now requires a complete scheme of refurbishment. Overall, the accommodation amounts to 2,356sqft (218.8 sqm) including the two lean-to workshops attached to the south westerly elevation and therefore there is ample scope to reconfigure to provide for larger light and airy rooms to create one large family home or alternatively return the property back to two semi-detached homes.
Outside: The property sits directly on the street and there is off road parking. There is access to the rear garden via a right of way with or without vehicles over the neighbour’s driveway. The rear garden is currently quite overgrown but offers a blank canvas to budding garden enthusiasts.
Services: Mains water, drainage and electricity are connected to the property. There is a right of way to take services through the service media of the neighbouring property however there is no information on exactly where these services run or what services are available. There is currently no central heating system.
Directions: From Diss head west on the A1066 towards Thetford. At Garboldisham turn left onto the B1111 and continue out of the village and into the village of Hopton. Proceed along the main street and the property will be found on the right hand side immediately before The Vine public house.
