Property description

Offered for sale in two separate lots or as a whole, this converted Grade II listed barn is tucked away in the heart of the town                                                                                                                                                                           


Fire Cart Barn is a most attractive, link-detached brick and weather-boarded barn, believed to date from 1814. The barn would have housed the local fire cart for the fire department in the Georgian/Victorian era. It was converted into two dwellings in 2004 and provides surprisingly spacious and light accommodation over two floors, with good ceiling heights and an abundance of beams.

The property is being offered as a whole or as two separate lots. As a whole, the barn may be of interest to those looking for split/annexe accommodation, rental income or even to look at combining the two into one (subject to the necessary consents).

The property is tucked-away in a secure setting behind the Rose & Crown Hotel and represents a rare opportunity to purchase a property of character in the heart of the town, within a short walk of the High Street.

Outside, the property benefits from a gated parking space in the courtyard to the side and a dedicated space in the adjoining car park. There is a delightful, walled garden to one side and a separate walled garden area associated with the property.

- Both properties feature an abundance of exposed timbers and are full of character.

- Each is self-contained with their own individual kitchens and bath/shower rooms.


Fire Cart Barn is set in a very convenient and tucked away position, in the shadow of the Parish Church and just a short walk of the High Street, Warders Medical Centre and Stradbrook Dental Surgery.
