Handsome 19th century town house with delightful walled garden


Crown House is situated in the heart of the Suffolk town of Needham Market. The town retains its country town facilities and includes full community services, schools, recreational walks along the Gipping Valley where Needham Market is located and a variety of shops to meet everyday needs. The town also has The East Anglia Main Line railway through the town, with Needham Market railway station providing trains to Ipswich, Cambridge and Peterborough. Stowmarket and Ipswich have more comprehensive shopping, recreational and educational facilities. The A14 trunk road provides road links to Colchester, Cambridge and London.


Grade II Listed of special architectural or historical interest, Crown House dates from the late Georgian/early Victorian era and is believed to have been built in the 1840's. The vendors have, during their ownership, undertaken a comprehensive programme of renovation and refurbishment including secondary glazing, sash windows, roofing, new h/w cylinder and internal and external redecoration. The property contains many of the original features associated with both periods and of special note is the 19th century staircase, the deep skirting boards, picture rails, plaster mouldings and original fireplaces in bedrooms and main reception rooms. The house has a classic layout and is prominently located in the High Street with steps up to the front door. There is an entrance lobby with double doors to the centrally located reception hall. The main reception rooms are off the hall as is access to the cellar and there are numerous built in cupboards for storage. The sitting room has an attractive bay window which outlooks the gardens. The kitchen is well fitted with a comprehensive range of storage cupboards with an integral double oven, four plate hob and integrated dishwasher. The first floor landing has further storage cupboards and an elegant mahogany hand rail. Panelled doors lead to the four bedrooms, shower room and the bathroom with white heritage style fittings including a roll top bath. The second floor rooms are reached from the main landing and provides for a home office/bedroom and a study.

The rear walled garden has been professionally landscaped and has a wide lawn edged with attractive flowering borders and a stone terrace fronting the rear elevation of the house. To the far end of the garden is a Summer House (12'9" x 9'5") and there is a small barn range, which at ground floor level provides an outside WC, and garden store, with an external staircase rising to a workshop 19'3" x 9'10".

There is a vehicular access from a side lane (The Causeway) through a courtyard which also serves the neighbouring property and garages. There is a gravelled parking area within the rear courtyard.
