An impeccably presented two-bedroom Grade II listed converted granary. Old Granary Cottage, is positioned adjacent to the historic Woodbridge Tide Mill and features accommodation over three floors with wonderful river views from every level. The house is located on a no-through road at the edge of the River Deben, and minutes’ walk from the town centre and train station. This ‘best in breed’ unique property has been crafted with great style and flair by the current owner. Parking available for personal use (permit for a parking space behind electric gated obtained from Tide Mill Yacht Harbour). Small west-facing gravel terrace area with wonderful river views.

The River Deben itself, was a working river for many hundreds of years. Today, it is the domain of the leisure sailor and a haven to wildlife, a place of hidden creeks and moorings, tranquillity and charm. Central London can be reached from Woodbridge in a little over one hour and 30 minutes by train.

Externally clad in white weatherboard, Old Granary Cottage is the last in a row of former working quayside buildings. There is a private shingle courtyard at the front of the house.


The ground floor:

A stable front door leads into a hallway with muted brick flooring, and lined on one flank with Suffolk brickwork, which features a lovely touch in the form of an oak pull-down boot seat. An under-stair cupboard houses, on raised plinths, a Miele washing machine and a Bosch dryer. A latched timber door leads to one of the two bedrooms. This is a bright room with hand-built cabinetry and lovely views out to the quay through the louvre-shuttered windows. The modern en-suite bathroom, part walled with white metro tiles, has a tongue-and-groove panelled bath (with chrome shower fittings), chrome towel rail. There is a mirrored medicine cabinet with shaver point.


A painted timber staircase and painted feather board wall leads up to:

The first floor:

A dramatic and beautifully bright open-plan living space with dining area. The walls are timber-clad and coloured in light lime-wash. Far-reaching views look out to Sutton Hoo, the Tide Mill and the River Debden’s yachts, schooners and river boats. The sitting room intercommunicates with the kitchen, which has been bespoke fitted with quartz matt work top and a range of low-profile handle-less units. A stainless-steel sink sits inset to the worktop with mixer tap. Metro tiled splashback. AEG hob and oven. Integrated AEG fridge/freezer. Integrated dishwasher. Potterton Titanium boiler (gas).


The staircase continues up to:

The top floor:

The master bedroom is positioned on the second floor; a wonderful light and bright room decorated in neutral colours, white-painted floorboards and in-built storage and cabinetry. A workspace is set beneath the window, with elevated views of the river; the surrounding landscape providing a peaceful and quiet backdrop. A tiled shower room is set adjacent on this level with ceramic flooring chrome fittings, and chrome towel rail. WC and wash hand basin. Store room cupboard. There is a loft hatch in the landing area.


A picturesque and thriving market town, often described as the ‘gem in Suffolk’s crown’, Woodbridge is dotted with independent boutiques and shops, a thriving independent cinema and an excellent variety of restaurants and cafes. The town hosts annual music festivals and there are a number of clubs and facilities catering for sporting interests. There are several highly-rated state and private schools in the area catering for all ages. Suffolk’s coastal highlights of Aldeburgh, Orford and Thorpeness are just a short drive away.

The station at Woodbridge is around seven minutes’ walk from the house. Services to London Liverpool Street run from Woodbridge via Ipswich with a journey time of approximately 97 minutes. The popular seaside towns of Aldeburgh and Southwold and Snape Maltings are also within easy reach, further up the Suffolk coastline.


Further information:

A SONOS sound system is integrated across all three storeys.

A private parking permit in the Tide Mill Yacht Harbour is also available for application (NB available only for owner occupiers).

Windows are double glazed throughout.

Gas central heating and hot water system with Nest system remote control.

The quay on rare occasions can be subject to a tidal surge but the house itself has in place a tidal defence barrier which easily slots into place outside the front door.


Agent's note:

Parking - no parking outside the property however NB a permit can be obtained from Tide Mill Yacht Harbour for a parking space for owner's personal use (not for holiday let guests) - this space is located immediately behind the property through electric gates.

Outside space - there is a small shingle area immediately adjacent to the front door which is west facing and affords wonderful sunset views over the river.

Information from the owner in relation to flood risk: Very rare tidal surges cause minor flooding at quay level (well notified in advance by the Environmental Agency via text and email) the house is protected from these surges by a defence barrier which is easily deployed by slotting into place. This has not effected any mortgage being provided, partly due to the comprehensive buildings insurance provided via The Old Granary Woodbridge Limited. This company is owned and run by all the owners of the properties in the building. Purchase of the cottage automatically entitles a place on the board of directors.



Residents maintenance charge:  Approx. £1,154 per quarter (NB includes buildings insurance, ground rent, reserve fund, exterior maintenance/repairs, decoration, legal/accountancy/admin charges).

Reserve fund: Currently holds circa £25k.

Tenure: Share of Freehold

Guide price: £450,000 subject to contract
