Church Farm is well located for access to the Heritage Coast at the popular villages of Southwold, Walberswick, Dunwich, Thorpeness and Aldeburgh and also popular nature reserves such as Minsmere, located just to the north of Westleton. There is a wide range of sporting facilities in the area with a number of good golf courses within easy reach as well as sailing on the rivers Alde and Deben.

The nearby town of Saxmundham provides a range of day to day facilities including a bank, two supermarkets, a high street with a variety of shops and a train station with access to London via Ipswich. Snape is the home of the Aldeburgh Festival at Snape Maltings which is within easy reach. Ipswich is the country town of Suffolk and has a mainline rail service to London taking from 65 minutes. There are excellent schools close by within both the private sector with Framlingham & Woodbridge Schools & state sector with Thomas Mills & Farlingaye.


Church Farm is a substantial period farmhouse constructed predominantly from brick with painted colour washed elevations under pitched pan tiled roofs and set within its own grounds of 7 acres.

The house, which requires renovation, has great character with exposed beams and studwork, several open fireplaces, French windows and exposed brick floors. Planning permission is currently being sought but pre-application approval has been given for a sizeable extension, as well as extensive renovation and modernisation plans which will enable the buyer to upgrade and personalise the property to their own requirements. The permission will also formalise the new road access next to the church.

The accommodation is light and airy and the house has great flexibility for improvement incorporating some the the existing and adjoining outbuildings. The grounds of Church Farm are a particular feature of the house lying to the north west of the house and the neighbouring Grade II Listed St John the Baptist village church. The grounds are made up of paddocks served by the range of stables and outbuildings with the house.

From Ipswich take the A12 north bypassing Woodbridge & Wickham Market. Turn right signposted Snape and enter the village. The entrance to Church Farm will be seen just opposite the garage on the left.

Acreage: 7 Acres
