A substantial 3 storey period town house covering some 3,000sq.ft including an A1 use retail shop, walled gardens and outbuilding with planning consent for an additional residential dwelling.

Occupying arguably the most prominent position along Hadleigh’s main thoroughfare, 85 High Street is an imposing Grade II Listed 18th century townhouse which is predominantly brick built with a distinctive slate mansard roof. Having been occupied by the same family for some 120 years, the ground floor retail frontage was once the towns bakery (circa 1900) which incorporated the existing sitting room. The remaining accommodation (excluding the basement) was also the family home which is principally to the rear of the house with the exception of bedrooms 1 & 2 and the attic rooms which front the High Street. As such there is much emphasis of the picturesque views over the rear walled gardens, neighbouring period buildings and the church from all floors which is a stark contrast to the vibrant street scene to Hadleigh’s High Street frontage. Despite the extensive residential living space its fair to say the accommodation requires cosmetic updating but gives great scope to improve and modify.

The front shop has been continuously let in recent times which is now vacant, as the previous tenants have relocated to a larger premises. The shop comprises two main retail areas with the main room having full height glazing to the street with its own independent access, as well as a fitted work surface and adjacent cloak room to the rear. The shop is classed as Ground Retail Zone A, covering 33.4 sq.m.

Adjoining the far south western boundary is a two storey ancillary outbuilding which has planning permission to convert into a separate one bedroom dwelling with courtyard garden and parking. The full planning application, design and access statement and listed building consents can be viewed via Babergh & mid Suffolk online planning portal under the references DC/18/02833 and DC/18/02834 respectively.

Vehicular access to the property is via Pound Lane which in turn becomes Church Walk, where a right of way over a shared driveway leads to the subject two storey outbuilding which is ripe for conversion. Its existing use is a general store/garage being of red brick with a hipped roof. Beyond is
the enclosed and private rear garden which is well stocked with a variety of shrubs and plants. Of particular note is the south facing crinkle crankle wall being an unusual and attractive feature.

The next steps...

Before making an offer on a property you will want to consider your financial situation, your income and outgoings.

Will you finance the purchase of your next property from the sale of an existing property which can put you in a chain, arrange a mortgage through your bank or buy the property outright.
To help you finance your next property purchase, we have a long established relationship with an independent mortgage broker who can discuss your situation with you.

Remember that having a 'mortgage decision in principle' can make you a more attractive buyer when you make an offer on a property. Contact our mortgage advisers for free, no obligation and impartial advice.
Some advantages of a broker are:

  • They do all the legwork for you, working on your behalf with the lender
  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • You get more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

However with your bank maybe able to:

  • Build off existing relationship (discounts if you have a checking/saving account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
  • Lower interest rates in some cases
  • Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.

When it comes to making an offer on a property a bit of negotiation is to be expected, however don't offer so little that you end up in a lengthy negotiation process, as you might lose the property altogether if someone else makes a higher bid.
