About the property

DESCRIPTION Sans Souci is an imposing period house, traditional in its layout, with large rooms and high ceilings. Well positioned within its plot that extends to approximately one acre (sts). Currently the vendors run a successful bed and breakfast, but are not selling as a commercial venture. The property has vast accommodation including a separate self-contained annexe. Although Sans Souci would make a lovely family home, there are many possibilities to further develop, subject to discussions with East Suffolk council and gaining relevant planning permissions and consent. Please note that no approach to East Suffolk has been made by the agents or the vendors. Outside the property is approached via a large gravel driveway providing ample off-road parking for several vehicles. This also gives access to the courtyard and garage immediately behind the property and further access to large established gardens to the rear with large tin shed/store and large greenhouse. To the opposite side of the property there is a walled garden that services the annexe, with separate access and timber shed. Additional pedestrian access to the front currently blocked.

LOCATION Often referred to as "The Garden of Suffolk" the pretty village of Yoxford lies just off the A12 Great Yarmouth to London Road and was in the 19th Century a coaching post on the London turnpike. Today Yoxford is a much sought after and well served typically Suffolk village centring around its fine parish church of St Peters with its grand tower and spire. Yoxford is also home to the annual arts festival held in August each year and which features musicians, actors, poets and artists with many workshops, master classes and exhibitions being held in the village. The village has the old established Horner’s grocers, public houses, antique and book shops and is well served by public transport. The nearby railway halt at Darsham lying on the East Suffolk line gives regular services to Ipswich and London Liverpool Street.

DIRECTIONS From Saxmundham heading north bound on the A12, enter the village of Yoxford following the road round to the right and Sans Souci can be identified by a Flick & Son for sale board on the right hand side.
