Substantial flint and timber barn


A rare opportunity to acquire a detached barn located close to the heart of the popular village of Freckenham. The substantial barn is of brick and flint construction with timber cladding above, beneath a pitched roof with corrugated sheet covering. The attractive barn is of rectangular shape and features stunning exposed timber beams and rafters. The gross internal area of the barn is approximately 183m² (1,970ft²), with an internal ridge height of 7.82m and an eaves height of 4.86m. The private concrete driveway is accessed via Mortimer Lane via a timber 5 bar gate. The driveway leads to the barn itself. The remainder of the curtilage is laid to grass with some young trees interspersing. The boundaries are marked by various timber fences; note should be made that the left hand side boundary (when looking from Mortimer Lane) is marked by red stakes on the far side of the hedge.


Freehold with vacant possession


Mortimer Lane can be found just to the north of the village centre, with the barn being found after approximately 60m on the right hand side. The attractive village of Freckenham has a pub and village hall but a larger range of facilities and shops can be found in the town of Mildenhall to the north east, or Newmarket only 8 miles away.

Auctioneers Note

The property is sold subject to an overage clause - see legal pack for details.

Lot Type



Planning permission has previously been granted for the conversion of the barn to form a two storey residential dwelling. The approval (F/2004/0795/COU) has since lapsed, but positive pre-application discussions have been held with West Suffolk regarding a new scheme. See legal pack and West Suffolk planning portal for details.
