Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Wedgwood House is one of Britain's undiscovered architectural gems. Set in approximately four acres of beautifully landscaped gardens in a tranquil Suffolk vale, this three / four bedroom house is an example of Modern architecture at its finest.

It was designed by the renowned architects Peter Aldington and John Craig in 1974, the former being notable for having more of his houses listed by English Heritage than any other post war architect. Like the classic Farnsworth House by Mies van der Rohe in Illinois, USA (an obvious influence on Aldington & Craig), Wedgwood House is conceived as a steel-framed glass pavilion floating in the landscape. Measuring approximately 2,161 sq ft, the house also has a large full height basement which would be fantastic for storage.

The grounds at the Wedgwood House are of a rare quality and are not only picturesque but highly productive. Fruits including apples, pears, plums, peaches, quinces and damsons grow in the historic walled orchard and many vegetables and herbs grow in the vegetable garden. As well as the walled orchard and vegetable garden there are level lawns, a car parking area, copse and field. There are also various sheds and small outbuildings for garden storage.

The house can be found in Higham, a much sought-after village in the Dedham Vale. The entire village is encompassed in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the surrounding landscape appears much the same as it appears in the artist John Constable's celebrated paintings of the area. The house occupies one of the most enviable positions in this favoured village.

Higham is easily reached by road from the A12 from London. By rail the nearest stations are Manningtree and Colchester, both of which run services to Liverpool Street in under an hour. Although there are plenty of good farm shops and country pubs and restaurants in the area, there are a wider range of services available in Colchester or Ipswich.
