About this property

For sale by online auction on 6th December 2023. Bidding window opens 5th December at 11am. Guide £125,000 plus fees.

DESCRIPTION We are delighted to present the opportunity to acquire part of the historic RAF Flixton site in Suffolk. The parcel of land and buildings is part of the former Royal Air Force base and offers a range of potential uses and development opportunities, subject to planning, but will also appeal to buyers looking for a parcel of arable and woodland for amenity purposes.

The property comprises approximately 4.78 hectares (11.80 acres) in total and comprises a combination of arable land, woodland, concrete access track and buildings. The sale boundary is outlined in red on the sale plan. Buyers should be aware that there is a small part of the field, close to the roadside, which is registered to another party and outside of the sale boundary.

The property has historical significance with RAF Flixton playing a crucial role in World War II as a base for the United States Army Air Forces. The three buildings on the site were part of the base; the largest of which measures approximately 27.50m x 8.60m and is understood to have been a gymnasium.

There is a gateway off Grange Road into the arable field as well as a concrete access road along the northern boundary which provided access to the woodland and buildings. Third parties have rights over this access road.

Services: There are no services connected to the property.

Wayleaves Easements and Rights of Way: The property is sold subject to and with the benefit of all existing rights, including rights of way, whether public or private, light, support, drainage, water and electricity supplies and other rights, easements, quasi-easements, and all wayleaves whether referred to or not in these particulars.

How It Works: Unconditional Timed Auction Online: This is a binding method of sale similar to a traditional public property auction. The only difference is the bidding takes place online. The successful purchaser will be required to pay a 10% deposit (subject to a minimum payment of £5,000) on the fall of the virtual gavel and contracts will be exchanged. Bidding for properties online works in a similar fashion to eBay. You can place bids using your PC, tablet or mobile phone and the minimum amount you can bid is defined by the 'bid increment' level. When you place a bid, the property listing page will show you if your bid was successful and whether or not you are the highest bidder. When you are the highest bidder on a property, if another bidder outbids you the system will notify you by email so that you can place another bid if you wish. The major difference from eBay is that our system eradicates sudden death 'bid sniping' through the use of auction 'extension times'. If you have any questions or require any clarification please contact the auctioneer.
