Location Marlow House lies in the most lovely hidden position adjacent to Pytches Road and Fitzgerald Road, and within a few minutes walk of all that the town has to offer. Woodbridge is probably best known for its outstanding riverside setting. It is a very popular market town, offering a good choice of schooling in both the state and private sectors, a wide variety of shops and restaurants, a cinema/theatre and marina. Woodbridge benefits from rail links to Ipswich, where Inter City rail services to London's Liverpool Street station take just over the hour.

The popular Heritage Coastline destinations of Orford, Aldeburgh, Thorpeness and Southwold are also within a short driving distance. The county town of Ipswich is approximately 10 miles to the south-west. The A12 trunk road, which links the north and the south of the county, is just a couple of minutes from the property.  

Description Marlow House is a spacious property designed by local architects, Mullins Dowse. It dates from the 1970s and is of traditional brick construction under a tiled roof. Whilst the house offers practical accommodation, its greatest asset is its wonderful location and fantastic gardens, which extend to approximately half an acre. These have been beautifully maintained and provide superb privacy. In addition is ample parking. The house itself has versatile accommodation with a spacious drawing room leading to the dining room and then onto the 15'11 x 12' kitchen. In addition is the utility room, a study and shower room. From the reception hall is access to a secondary utility room/kitchenette, the sitting room and the fifth double bedroom, which has an en-suite shower room. This has scope to be used as an annexe if required. On the first floor are four double bedrooms, one with an en-suite bathroom, and a shower room. The property has been well maintained and there is UPVC double glazing throughout, along with oak internal doors. It extends to approximately 2,500 sq ft.

Outside Marlow House is accessed from Fitzgerald Road via cast iron gates that lead to a tarmac drive and on to a substantial shingle parking area, which has room for ample vehicles. Adjacent to this are productive vegetable beds that are bordered by lavender and rosemary. Here there is a greenhouse, a patio area adjacent to the sitting room, potting shed and access to the garage. The garage has been built to a high standard of brick and block construction under a tiled roof. Part of it was in the past used as a home office, and there are ample power and telephone sockets. To the front is an up-and-over door. One part is fitted with high and low level wall units. It measures approximately 18'5 x 18'.

The main gardens are bordered from the driveway by mature hedging. Immediately adjacent to the house are south-west facing patio areas that lead down to the gardens themselves. This has been beautifully landscaped and contains circular areas of lawn with pathways leading to separate hidden parts of the garden. The pathways are bordered by flowerbeds and shrubs. Whilst the property is located in the town itself, it has a wonderful feeling of privacy and is enclosed by substantial trees. In total, the grounds extend to approximately half an acre.
