Property description

A development opportunity for the conversion and extension of a Victorian School

This charming old school house was built in 1872 and closed sometime between 1944 -49. Despite being abandoned for almost 70 years the original structure is unaltered and many of the original internal features remain. Planning Consent has been granted under Mid Suffolk District Council reference: 1122/17 for the conversion and extension to provide one residential dwelling, with vehicular access and parking. This is a superb opportunity to restore the original structure and create a picturesque home in a delightful rural setting.

The proposed plan is for the main building to become a lounge and for a kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, three bedrooms and two bathrooms to be created to the rear – around an enclosed courtyard. A new access and parking are also planned and will leave the property with a good sized, wrap around garden – with open fields to the rear.

Location:
Redlingfield is under 4 miles from Eye, which has a range of shops and services and renowned schools and less than 8 miles from Diss mainline railway station; which has a mainline service to London Liverpool Street.
