Auction Venue


A substantial former restaurant with outline planning for 7 flats

Situated in the heart of the town centre is this large detached period building which was formerly a public house and most recently a restaurant. Leiston is well served by a range of local amenities and located some 4 miles from Aldeburgh and Sizewell and 3 miles from Thorpeness on the Suffolk Heritage Coast. The property currently offers 4 bedroom accommodation but Outline Planning Permission was granted by East Suffolk Council in November 2019 under application number 19/2585 for conversion and extension to provide 7 flats comprising 1 x 1 bedroom, 3 x 2 bedroom and 3 x 3 bedroom together with parking spaces. The consent and drawings can be viewed in the online Legal Pack. An outstanding development opportunity which warrants close attention.
