DESCRIPTION The Clock House is a Grade II Listed property believed to have been built in the 1830's. The property was once part of the Garrett Works and is believed to be the original site of Richard Garrett's first forge - an enterprise that was to grow over subsequent generations to provide iron works across the empire. After the demise of the business in the 1970's the property, along with a select number of other buildings at High Green, were sympathetically converted to an attractive and spacious private house as part of an award winning conversion project. The property which offers spacious and flexible accommodation still retains a number of features which gives clues to its past, these include the wonderful iron kitchen window and a number of iron brackets which support the property's exposed beams with a scope to develop the accommodation further. There is a very large roof space which could, subject to the usual planning permissions and consents, be converted to additional accommodation. A small ladder leads from the attic into the clock tower itself and this provides a fascinating view of the town. Other notable features of the property include a cottage style garden which was designed and carefully laid out by the previous owner and is well stocked with a wide range of herbaceous plants and shrubs and affords a high degree of seclusion. The Clock House may also appeal to anyone with an interest in steam as its neighbour is the excellent Leiston Longshop Museum.
