The Garage lies near the south-east edge of the village in a well timbered setting with the site being bordered by a tributary of the River Gipping to the north.

Both house and garage premises date largely from the 1970’s; the former (Forge View) is of traditional chalet style construction in cavity brick with later additions providing a ground floor Bed/Bath suite and a large conservatory; there is a single garage and small garden area to the rear. The property is largely double glazed with gas fired central heating from radiators. The Garage is of concrete portal frame construction under profiled roof with 2 good Workshops (one with inspection pit) a Reception/Office and useful storage areas; there is oil fired warm air heating plus a gas fired radiant heater unit. The present owner has run the business for 35 years and this has included an MOT bay and fuel sales (with business rate relief from the latter). The sale will include the established goodwill if required by a purchaser. Alternatively there may be potential to redevelop the site for residential purposes (subject to planning permission).
