LOT 2 - DASHES FARM HOUSE SET IN 6.79 ACRES (2.77HA) A fine example of a modern version of a traditional style Suffolk farm house with over 2,150 sq ft of living accommodation. The property has generous proportions, with a large kitchen/breakfast room and triple aspect sitting room. In addition, there is a snug, utility room and study all with southerly aspects on the ground floor. A generous entrance hall leads up to the first floor with a large landing area providing access to all four bedrooms and the family bathroom. The master bedroom has ensuite facilities. Leading back downstairs, there is also a pantry off the kitchen/breakfast room, rear lobby and downstairs WC. An attractive entrance porch leads into the hall, which connects to an inner lobby area taking you through French doors into the garden. The garden benefits from a roofed veranda covering a large flag-stoned area. The flag-stones extend the full length of the property enclosed by a low brick wall, which then leads into the lawned garden. The garden is laid to lawn and there are two areas of woodland planting on either side of the property.

To the south of the garden is an area established with grass. To the west is presently cropped with arable crops, but this could conveniently be grassed and fenced off for livestock if required.

If the purchaser for Lot 2 is different to Lot 1, then they will be required to erect a boundary fence demarcating its southern, eastern and western boundary within six months of completion of the sale.

The property has private drainage and mains electricity; and there is a private water supply, which comes via a borehole located on Lot 3. If the purchasers of Lots 2 and 3 are different, then the purchaser of Lot 3 will be required to continue to provide water to Dashes Farm House, subject to a fair charge being paid for the same to reflect similar charges being applied by local water authorities and it will reflect also the amount of water consumed.

The property benefits from central heating, with an oil fired boiler.
