A substantial period property located in the very centre of Hadleigh offering retail space and extensive residential accommodation with development opportunity and garage parking to the rear
85 High Street is arguably the most distinctive property located in the centre of Hadleigh. Listed as Grade II, the house is believed to date from the early 18th Century and is chiefly of brick construction under a slate mansard roof. Arranged over 4 floors (including a substantial cellar and 2 large attic rooms), the property is currently mixed use comprising a ground floor retail shop, with full height glazed frontage onto Hadleigh High Street. The remaining residential accommodation is immediately behind the two front retail areas with independent access which covers all floors, including the cellar/ basement. Although the property does require modernisation, the extensive accommodation coupled with retail/office space provides great scope for a purchaser to put their own stamp on 85 High Street to create a wonderful family home, or restore to its former glory as a thriving retail enterprise – subject to the necessary consents.
Vehicular access to the property is to the rear via Pound Lane and Church Walk, where a right of way gives access to a brick-built store/double garage/parking with storage above. This outbuilding has been granted planning permission and listed building consent to convert into a separate residential dwelling with courtyard garden and parking. The full planning permission, listed building consents, and the design and access statement can be obtained on Babergh & Mid-Suffolk’s planning portal under references DC/18/02833 and DC/18/02834 (please find links to these at the bottom of the page).
Between the outbuilding and the rear of the house is a delightful south-west facing walled garden with a feature serpentine wall and numerous shrubs and plants. The garden is private and backs onto Church Walk giving a particularly attractive outlook over the historic hub of Hadleigh, as well as access to river walks.
