A substantial south facing plot of approx. 3.6 acres (subject to survey) with detailed planning consent to erect a single storey, contemporary, sustainable house which has been designed by Beech Architects to incorporate stabling and a workshop. The proposal which is reminiscent of some of television's Grand Designs, is unique and employs straw bales and a green roof in its eco-friendly construction. The design creates open plan living spaces and views to the south overlooking the post and railed paddocks which have already been established by the owners. There is a mobile home on site which is connected to electricity, water and drainage. This may be available by negotiation.

Meadow View is an Equestrian property, situated on the northern edge of the well-served Suffolk village of Knodishall. It lies within walking distance of the village shop, pub and primary school. There is also a small market garden. The village is ideally located for the sea side town of Aldeburgh and its Fantasy Village neighbour: Thorpeness. There are nature reserves at the next village of Aldringham and wonderful walks in the area including the Common at Knodishall, Iken Cliff along the Alde estuary and the heath and woodland at Tunstall Forest and Blaxhall Common. There are also bridleways which link from Knodishall to Friston and to Aldeburgh and the beach. Attractions in this area include the world famous Snape Maltings Concert Hall and the RSPV reserve at Minsmere. There are excellent amenities at Leiston which include a sports centre and swimming pool, a cinema, local shops and an excellent museum dedicated to the town's proud industrial heritage.
