The Pound is situated in the attractive conservation village of Higham, which is set in the undulating countryside of the Stour Valley between the popular and picturesque villages of Stoke-by-Nayland and Dedham. The area has been designated as one of outstanding natural beauty and is famous for the works of John Constable. The nearby village of Stratford St Mary offers day to day amenities and the A12 gives ready access to, (being midway between), Ipswich and the ancient Roman town of Colchester with their extensive shopping, schooling and recreational facilities. Direct fast train services to London's Liverpool Street from Colchester take approximately 50 minutes.


Believed to date from the 16th century, The Pound is Grade II Listed of Special Architectural or Historical Interest. Constructed from a timber frame with rendered elevations and a 19th century red brick wing under a plain tile roof. There are many period features including open fireplaces, exposed beams and sash windows.

The ground floor accommodation comprises an entrance hall which leads through to 2 reception rooms, a study and downstairs cloakroom. The rear hall gives access to the dining room which benefits from an Aga and offers delightful views out across the gardens and surrounding countryside. The kitchen and downstairs shower room are also at this end of the house.

The first floor is reached via two staircases, which lead to 5 bedrooms and 3 bath/shower rooms.

The gardens are a real feature of the property with formal gardens mainly laid to grass with fabulous views out across the Stour valley. The gardens and grounds are flanked on either side by mature woodland leading away from the house with a series of ponds providing a beautiful outlook from the house. There is a large agricultural barn along with a series of brick built stables/bull boxes all centred around a large courtyard/hard standing. The paddocks lie mainly at the rear of the property.
