Hadleigh is an historic and thriving Suffolk market town, which contains an abundance of fine houses and cottages of many periods dating from early Tudor times through to the Georgian and Victorian periods. The town centre has a good selection of shops, schooling and recreational facilities and there is a good drive through to Ipswich with links to the A12 and A14 and multiple amenities. Queen Street is a short cul-de-sac leading off the historic High Street containing two rows of handsome early Victorian town villas, clearly once amongst the best houses in Hadleigh. The road leads down to the magnificent parish church and rectory with a pleasant green in front.
4 Queen Street was built in 1858 in the late Georgian/early Victorian style with Suffolk white bricks under a slate roof. The rear part is typically constructed in soft red brick and the house retains almost all its magnificent double hung sash windows. It provides extensive accommodation, including above the side archway. Internally there are many good features including high ceilings, fine marble fireplaces and elegant staircases and banisters.
The property has been the subject in recent years of extensive improvement and the construction of a magnificent vaulted garden room to double the size of the kitchen. There is an excellent Shaker kitchen with real wooden work surfaces and a large Heritage bathroom en suite to the main bedroom, with two further bathrooms. There are five bedrooms, although the one above the archway would make a charming studio or home office. Most unusually the house has off-street parking under the archway, which leads through to the garage and a delightful fully walled courtyard garden, beautifully laid out. As well as the garage there is a further brick workshop at the rear. The house is in impeccable decorative order throughout and much use is made of light contemporary materials, such as real oak floorboards and doors.
