The East Wing comprises almost entirely a large, custom fitted kitchen/breakfast/family room with glazed doors opening into the garden and large full length windows providing views over the surrounding countryside. The West Wing currently comprises a remarkably large space, sub divided into leisure and a garden room; however, could well be utilised to create a fabulous reception and entertaining room.

Marshland House enjoys distant views over the River Ore and towards the sea, the property sits within a large stand of ancient oak trees called Captain's Wood between Orford and Snape, amid Suffolk's popular and beautiful Heritage Coast.

Snape is also well served with a church, community hall, primary school, three good public houses and a village store. To the north lies the vibrant town of Aldeburgh, which offers superb recreational facilities including sailing, golfing, fishing and walking. The town also provides a good selection of shops, restaurants, public houses and a cinema.
The property is a short drive from the A12 giving good access to London. Branch line train stations at Campsea Ash and Melton offer a train service to London Liverpool Street via Ipswich.

Marshland House stands within its grounds of mature gardens which surround the property and extend to approximately 15 acres. The property is approached via a gravelled driveway which sweeps around to the front of the property, culminating in an area of hard standing and access to the garaging in front of the house.
Marshland House benefits from some superb leisure facilities including a detached indoor swimming pool complex with its attendant changing rooms, and there is also a hard tennis court. Also, adjacent to the house, is a substantial detached double garage with shower room, WC and room above which could potentially be used utilised as an office or studio (subject to any necessary consents).
