Riby House, 9 Riby Road, Felixstowe
An exciting residential development site offering the opportunity to create a scheme to suit this attractive site in grounds of approximately 0.29 of an acre (subject to survey).
Due to the size of the plot, we are of the opinion this is a rare chance for a developer to realise the full potential of the land and design a proposal that would best suit the location and street scene subject to planning approval.
There is currently no planning permission in place for the site, however, historic planning applications have been passed for a pair of semi-detached houses or one detached bungalow in the grounds of the house (reference: E7819/2 application permitted on 18th April 1968). As agents, we believe there is potential to demolish the existing house and apply for planning permission to construct three pairs of semi-detached houses or three detached bungalows.
The site is within a short walk from both the seafront with a rejuvenated Pier and Felixstowe town, which provides an excellent array of local amenities, shops, restaurants and entertainment venues. The town offers excellent transport links including Felixstowe train station along with the A14 which links up to the A12 heading to London or onto further coastal areas and surrounding countryside. Suffolk's county town of Ipswich lies only a few miles to the north west. Ipswich offers a wide range of shopping and recreational facilities as well as a mainline railway station to London Liverpool Street.
Also close by is the hamlet of Felixstowe Ferry which is home to the Ferry Boat Inn, a charming pub/restaurant dating back to the 15th century, the Ferry Cafe, a further cafe at the ferry jetty, fish shop selling the local catch, boatyard, moorings and the Felixstowe Ferry Sailing Club. There is also a Ferry providing access across the River Deben to Bawdsey. For the golfing enthusiast Felixstowe Golf Club offers two courses, one nine hole and one eighteen golf courses.
