Full description

A most handsome Grade II* Queen Anne country house


The village of Dickleburgh is still well served by a village shop and post office as well as a village school and thriving social club in the village hall. Norwich, the Cathedral city and regional centre of East Anglia, lies approximately 18 miles to the north and the county town of Diss which is about 4½ miles has a mainline railway station with regular trains to London Liverpool Street and a journey time of approximately 90 minutes. There are also good shopping and banking facilities in the nearby town of Harleston (3½ miles). Ipswich lies 19 miles to the south.


Dickleburgh Manor is a most handsome Grade II* listed Queen Anne country house. The house is traditionally constructed of red brick with a steeply pitched hipped tiled roof with modillion eaves cornice, so typical of the best houses of the period. Much period detail remains with fine sash windows and elegant and well proportioned rooms.

The current owners acquired the house about 25 years ago and have carried out numerous and extensive improvements and much refurbishment work over the period. The house was sympathetically extended in 2000 when the billiard room/games room was added as well as two porches and in 2011, the orangery was also added. In addition, the original Victorian glasshouse in the grounds has been completely renovated. In 2013, the top floor of the house was totally refurbished and there are now 3 double bedrooms on the top floor, each with en-suite bath or shower rooms as well as a study/sitting room.

There are extensive gardens and grounds with a heated swimming pool and Astroturf hard tennis court as well as open fronted garaging and a workshop. The range of outbuildings to the north of the house were converted into two separate self-contained cottages, The Old Office and The Stables. These are both currently let on Agreed Shorthold Tenancies with a combined annual rent of £12,840. Vacant possession can be obtained if desired, subject to the usual notice period.

The house is approached from the east through wrought iron gates onto a large gravelled forecourt which lies to the front and east of the house. There is a further gravel drive to the north where the two cottages are situated and the drive also continues round behind the house where there is a further large gravelled parking area and where the three bay open fronted garaging and workshop is situated.

To the south of the house there is a paved terrace approached off the orangery and the kitchen/breakfast room. This leads onto the heated swimming pool which is surrounded by decking and a low brick wall. Continuing to the south there is an area of extensive lawned garden with fine mature trees and a large natural pond. The Astroturf hard tennis court is situated to the west of the garaging. Continuing to the west there is an extensive area put down to grass of meadow/paddock and this is bounded to the west and north by a large earth bank which provides effective sound protection from the A140 which runs along the western boundary. The land in all extends to 5.07 acres (est).
