A significant Georgian fronted Grade II* listed building in about 0.92 acres including spacious parking area. Previously run as a community centre and now providing an interesting residential conversion opportunity in the centre of this popular town.
East House is an impressive Grade II* listed property which probably dates back to the 1600s. It has a handsome Georgian frontage which belies its earlier original timber frame construction; features include red brick elevations, sash windows and a central portico with doric columns framing the front door. Internally, elegant original features include fireplaces, high ceilings, carved architraves and coving. In recent years East House served as a community centre but, having been left empty & partially boarded-up for a number of years since, it now requires considerable refurbishment in order to convert it into a residential property or similar. It is likely that the property and meadows were a private residence until about 1960.
ON THE INSTRUCTIONS OF BABERGH DISTRICT COUNCIL, East House is now available to purchase along with the south east facing garden to the rear and a spacious car park area bordered by mature lime trees and horse chestnut to the northern elevation. The grounds in total amount to about 0.92 acres.
The property comprises about 9517 sq ft (884 sq m) and architect's plans have previously been drawn up showing a proposed conversion into 2 residential dwellings (stp). These Wincer Kievenaar' plans can be provided by Carter Jonas upon request.
