Iken is a small village situated within the Suffolk Coast & Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, close to the River Alde estuary and with Tunstall Forest to the west. Snape village and the popular coastal town of Aldeburgh are 2.5 miles to the north west and 8 miles to the north east respectively. Woodbridge is 12 miles and the county town of Ipswich 20 miles to the south west. The property is situated on Snape Road between Fazeboons and Facons Bottom Farm.


The property comprises a traditional timber framed barn, approached via a shared driveway, the site being shown edged red for identification purposes only on site plan opposite. The building is believed to have been constructed in the late 16th/early 17th century with later additions. The main barn is constructed with a low plinth wall and timber frame with timber cladding, under a pan tile roof and accessed via large double doors to the front and a further pedestrian door to the eastern flank wall. A small lean-to structure with brick walls is attached to the west gable. A range of outbuildings adjacent to the main barn doors are of timber frame and brickwork construction under a pitched pan tile roof and provide a workshop and four further stores at ground floor level. Stairs from within the main barn and also one of the stores provide access to a refurbished first floor area, understood to have been previously used as a gymnasium. A single storey block of three further outbuildings adjoin the eastern flank wall of the main barn, constructed of brick and blockwork under a pitched pan tile roof. The grounds of the property include a surfaced yard in front of the main barn, a fenced and surfaced tennis court and further open ground to the rear of the barn.
