Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A substantial Edwardian family house set in 7 acres amidst delightfully mature gardens, paddock and woodland, close to Tunstall Forest

Campsea Hame, dating from 1913, is a classic Edwardian family house thought to have been built originally by Reades of Aldeburgh as the Dowager’s residence for the neighbouring estate. The house, with its classic Edwardian elevations has been home to the present vendors for over 30 years, and offers well laid out and well-proportioned accommodation with high ceiling rooms, original leaded light windows, wood boarded floors and solid doors. There are three principle reception rooms, together with a study/snug and a large open plan kitchen/breakfast room, together with a utility room and ground floor cloak/shower room.
On the first floor there are five double bedrooms, all of which enjoy views across the gardens and surrounding countryside, together with two spacious bathrooms.
On the second floor are two attic bedrooms, a washroom/cloakroom and box room and the property benefits from an oil fired central heating system.

Twin gates open to an extensive shingle parking and turning area to the front of the house with a driveway leading off to the side, fronting onto which is a substantial double garage with a range of stores beyond, together with a further service courtyard accessible from the kitchen door, with a further range of domestic brick stores.
The gardens, which surround the house extend to about 2 acres and are sheltered by a wooded backdrop and include areas of well-kept lawns, bordered by mature hedging as well as well-stocked and colourful herbaceous and shrub borders. There is an enclosed heated outdoor swimming pool and a timbered summer house.

Beyond the gardens and lying to the west of the property, is a 5 acre paddock and woodland belt, previously used to graze horses.

Campsea Hame enjoys a rural setting on the edge of Campsea Ashe. The village, created by the joining of the parishes of Ashe and Campsea many years ago, has the benefit of its own rail station (within walking distance), with regular branch and direct services running along the East Coast line, connecting to Woodbridge, Ipswich, Cambridge and beyond to London Liverpool Street Station.
There is also a local pub and village stores, whilst nearby Wickham Market, (3 miles), and the popular riverfront town of Woodbridge (8½ miles), both of which are easily accessed, provide an excellent range of local shopping and commercial facilities. There is a wide choice of educational opportunities, with top performing schools in both the private and state sectors catering for all age groups, whilst recreationally, there are well established golf courses on the edge of Woodbridge and Aldeburgh (8 miles).
The nearby Rendlesham and Tunstall forests provide numerous footpaths and bridleways and the picturesque Suffolk Heritage Coast, with its popular villages and towns of Orford, Snape, Aldeburgh and Thorpeness, lies to the east, with the nearby Ore, Alde and Deben estuaries providing a wide choice of water sports.
The A12 dual carriageway which bypasses Wickham Market, provides a direct link to the county town of Ipswich (15 miles), and beyond to London’s M25, Stansted Airport (via the A120), as well as Cambridge and The Midlands (via the A14).
