INDIVDUAL BUILDING PLOT WITH OUTLINE PLANNING APPROVED FOR DETACHED DWELLING IN DESIRABLE VILLAGE LOCATION & BREATH-TAKING COUNTRYSIDE VIEWS
Occupying an idyllic situation, in an elevated position on the rise of a hill, with breath-taking undulating views across some of the best of Suffolk countryside is a desirable building plot to realise a dream project.

The site is bounded to the north by open countryside, to the west by an existing dwelling, to the south by a road / mature hedging and the east by mature hedging. Site size in all 0.11 acres.

The University City of Cambridge is easily reached via the A14 east-west major road link to facilitate commuting ease, and with the M11 providing a fast route to London. Reputable private and state schools, an eclectic range of high street and independent shops, and some of the country’s finest restaurants – including the only Michelin star in Suffolk – and leisure facilities can be found within a short drive as is majestic rambling Ickworth Park & Gardens.
