Wickhambrook is a large, historic Suffolk village dating back to the Saxon times built around local farms and scattered houses, sitting in rolling countryside. It has a thriving community with much to offer; there is a post office and stores, a public house, a primary school, a doctor's surgery and a social centre. It is conveniently situated 10 miles from Newmarket, Bury St Edmunds and Haverhill, and 22 miles from Cambridge, all offering varied and diverse amenities both in terms of schooling, shopping and culture. For the commuter, there is a rail station in Newmarket, linking to Cambridge and on to London and a regular bus service runs from the village to the nearest major towns. For those wishing to travel by road the A11 is a 13 mile drive leading to the M11, Stansted Airport and the M25.

Commerce House occupies a very pleasantly secluded position in the village with excellent views across the neighbouring countryside. It is approached over a gravel driveway which provides ample parking for numerous cars and gives access to the extensive garaging and the barn. These versatile outbuildings provide excellent storage for up to 10 cars but could also be converted, subject to planning, for a number of other uses. A shower room has been fitted in the barn to provide changing facilities for the outdoor pool which sits behind the barn and is surrounded by paved terracing offering private outdoor dining and recreational areas. The lawned gardens wrap around two sides of the house and extend to approximately one acre and there is hedging to the front with a path leading to the front door. The two paddocks extend to a further 4 acres, one having its own water supply.
