Property Details


Hoxne lies in an outstanding rural area on the south side of the picturesque Waveney Valley and is surrounded by a network of lovely country lanes and footpaths giving easy access to not only the village amenities such as the post office stores, pub and primary school but also Eye and the wide variety of facilities on offer there. The active village community attracts all age groups and throughout the year traditional activities take place ranging from monthly Parish Council Meetings in the Village Hall, to Fetes and events on the Village Green and Playing Field. Neighbouring Eye is fortunate in having supermarkets, butchers, a baker, chemist and a variety of other shops and businesses allowing the area to be essentially self sufficient. A Health Centre, Primary School and High School with Sixth Form combine to appeal to a wide ranging age group ensuring as wide as possible demographic is capable of having a full and varied life in the area. Moreover at Diss, approximately 5 miles distant, a mainline rail station has commuter services to London Liverpool Street in a journey time of around 90 minutes.


This unique building is believed to date from the early 1800's and designed with classical Greek architectural influences evidenced by the pedimented gable, cornice and three-quarter engaged columns. Of timber frame construction beneath a slate roof, the property features the shop front window along with further glazed and shuttered openings at either side. Furthermore, either side of the main window sit a fine pair of stained glass panels featuring a bulls head and rams head no doubt harking back to the buildings time as the village butchers shop.

In more recent times a small separate space has been created within which sits a WC along with stainless sink permission granted in 1991 following a Listed Building consent application along with Change of Use from retail shop to office use (A2).
