4 bedroom property – Allwood Green, Rickinghall, Suffolk

Guide Price £695,000

Property Details

Location The property is set in a peaceful, yet accessible rural location boasting stunning views and is within easy reach of neighbouring towns and villages. The Cattery business is presently closed due to retirement and hence the price reduction to reflect this. Set out in the countryside along a little used lane, this property has much to offer. The nearby village of Rickinghall (combined with Botesdale) is probably one of the area's most sought after, offering a Co-op store, health centre, schooling, public houses and food outlets. For wider facilities the thriving market town of Diss is just over the border into Norfolk around 7 miles away from where there is a mainline rail service to London Liverpool Street. Around 15 miles in the other direction is the fine old town of Bury St Edmunds.

The Property The property represents an excellent business development opportunity to rejuvenate the Cattery business but also introduce boarding kennels and equestrian livery, utilising the wide variety of outbuildings and land. The property is also registered with a Defra Holding number so other livestock such as sheep and goats may be kept on site too. The large American Barn could also be utilised to offer storage facilities.

The house, which benefits from oil fired central heating, has been totally refurbished and provides a comfortable family home including four double bedrooms, bathroom, study, large lounge with feature fireplace, German oak farmhouse kitchen/dining area with granite worktops and electric range cooker, inbuilt fridge/freezer and dishwasher. Separate utility room with wc.

Outside The property is set in nearly 6 acres including a garden which comprises lawn and mature shrubs, and there is a small play area for children as well as raised vegetable beds. There are three large fully fenced paddocks with water trough to each, and a small separate fenced paddock presently used for goats with wooden goat shed. The Cattery is very secluded and enclosed within its own landscaped courtyard away from the main house. The whole site is fenced and surrounded by mature hedges and trees.

Outbuildings There is a good range of buildings to the rear of the house including the following:

-Indoor stables and store 95'x24' providing excellent dry storage and six stables
-Large store barn 60'x51' with 18'6 ridge height
-Lean-to to above 60'x20'
