Location Little Wickham Place is to be found in the very heart of the popular and sought after village of Wickham Market, almost adjoining the churchyard. The village has a range of businesses and shops, including a destinaton butcher-Revetts-and also a Co-operative supermarket, restaurants, a health centre, dentists, pharmacy and library. There is also a well regarded primary school. As well as the village primary school, there are many other excellent schools within easy reach in both the state and private sectors, including Brandeston Hall, Framlingham College and Woodbridge School. The property is understood to be in the catchment area of Thomas Mills High School.

Wickham Market is conveniently situated for access to the A12 and the railway station at Campsea Ashe, which provides a connecting service to London via Ipswich. The historic town of Framlingham lies about 6 miles to the north, whilst the attractive market town of Woodbridge is about 5 miles to the south-west. The County town of Ipswich lies approximately 13.5 miles to the south. The popular Heritage Coast resorts of Aldeburgh and Thorpeness are within easy reach as is Snape, home to the famous Maltings Concert Hall. 

Description Little Wickham Place is a stunning semi-detached Grade II Listed Georgian townhouse. According to the Listing Schedule, the original core of the property probably dates from the early 18th Century, but as with many houses of that era, a Georgian façade was added during the early 19th Century. In recent years Little Wickham Place has been used as a second home as well as a successful holiday let. The vendors have continued to maintain Little Wickham Place to a high standard both internally and externally, including the refurbishment of the bathroom and en-suite facilities with impressive contemporary alternatives. The remainder of the house, however, retains many of its original features including the stunning inner hall, with groin vaulted ceiling, staircase and galleried first floor landing, the impressive sitting room with large bay window overlooking the rear garden and spacious master bedroom.

Outside there is a small garden to the front of Little Wickham Place enclosed within railings and partly screened by mature shrubs and established espaliered lime trees.

Vehicular access is to the side, with side hung double gates opening into the gravelled courtyard, where The Barn is located providing parking and storage facilities.

Above The Barn is an additional room that could provide ancillary accommodation to the main house, subject to the necessary consents, if required. The rear garden faces in a southerly direction and therefore benefits from the sun for the majority of the day.

Outside Little Wickham Place is set along Crown Place, besides All Saints Church and a short distance from the Market Square and village centre.

The front garden is relatively modest and enclosed within low level railings. A gate opens onto a brick path which leads up to the front door. The garden has been laid to gravel for ease of maintenance, but contains a number of established shrubs together with espaliered lime trees. Vehicular access is to the side of Little Wickham Place, where a pair of side hung gates open into the parking and courtyard area. Here this is a brick path linking the Garden Room with the gardens, together with a barn that provides garaging for Little Wickham Place and the neighbouring property. The ground floor of the barn has been divided into three garages/stores, two of which serve Little Wickham Place with the third used by the neighbour.

NB. To the north of the garages is an open gravelled area. This area is used by another neighbouring property, The Granary, who has access rights to this area.

An external staircase provides access to a room set above the garaging and stores. This measures approximately 31' x 15'9, and has the potential to provide useful ancillary accommodation to the main house, subject to the necessary consents, and benefits from a WC connection and night storage heaters.

The Garden Room is extremely private. It faces in a southerly direction and enjoys the sun for the majority of the day. The garden is well screened and fully enclosed by a mixture of established laurel hedging, fence panels and a high level brick wall. There is also a mature yew tree enclosed within a circular brick border. The garden is mainly laid to grass, but with a border around the perimeter containing a variety of established shrubs.
