Penn Commercial markets The Magpie Public House, Little Stonham for freehold sale

Penn Commercial is marketing the historic Magpie Public House in Norwich Road, Little Stonham, outside Stowmarket, for freehold sale, as exclusive sole agent.

The Grade II Listed public house, adjacent to the main A140 Ipswich to Norwich trunk road, is available for freehold sale, for offers in the region of £300,000.

The premises dates originally from the 15th Century, with additions from the 16th and 19th Centuries. An unusual feature until recent times has been the unique over-the-road gantry sign advertising the pub.

Offering a total area of approximately 471 sq m (5,069 sq ft), the property comprises the following:

• Ground floor bar and restaurant, with seating for circa 26 covers
• Games room, kitchen and customer WCs
• First floor: 7 bedrooms, manager’s flat, bathroom/shower facilities and laundry room
• Rear courtyard: beer garden, car park and pond
• Possible development opportunity, s.t.p.p.

Penn Commercial’s Rachael Jackson said:

“This historic public house, conveniently located on the main arterial road between Ipswich and Norwich, presents an attractive opportunity for a like-for-like use, or for redevelopment as a restaurant or boutique hotel.

"With a high volume of passing trade, significant on-site car parking and excellent connectivity, we are expecting this property to prove extremely popular.”
