A landmark house tucked away in the very heart of Woodbridge with fantastic views across the town’s roofscape and River Deben.

Dating from 1816 this listed Grade II, Georgian town house enjoys a wonderfully central and tucked away position, just off Church Street and behind the Thoroughfare.

Formerly used by Suffolk Seeds Stores for many years, the property was reconverted to a house in 1986 by well reputed local firm Ingram Smith. Somewhat of a landmark property when viewed from a distance, Alexander House, is probably the tallest house in Woodbridge. The views improve at each level and take in, both of the town’s churches, the Shire Hall, Tide Mill and the varied roofscape of the town, along with fantastic views over the River Deben and countryside beyond.

The accommodation, which extends to approximately 2,500 sq ft, is arranged over four floors with basement and is light and elegantly presented throughout. The house features an impressive first floor drawing room with deep sash windows, 12ft high ceiling, gas fireplace and a fully glazed bay window which opens onto a delightful balcony. Adjacent is a study accessed through a ’secret door’, whilst on the ground floor an impressive fully fitted kitchen/breakfast room has an AGA, Georgian style tiled floor and light granite work surfaces, beyond which is a sitting/dining room with full height French doors opening onto the sheltered and secluded part walled courtyard garden.

Across the second and third floors are three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The master bedroom at the top of the property offers a large walk-in wardrobe, formally the forth bedroom, and could easily be reinstated if desired.

The property, which benefits from a gas fired central heating system, also has a basement/workshop and separate ground floor cloakroom. There are many fine features including the circular staircase, sash windows, panelled doors, ornate ceiling cornices, high skirting and wrought iron window balconies.

Approached from Church Street via a right of way, the property has a garage and parking space within Stone Place and a secluded and secure part walled, sheltered courtyard garden.


Alexander House enjoys a hidden location, tucked away in the very heart of Woodbridge. Vehicular access is via Stone Place off Church Street.

The picturesque riverfront town, with its thriving Thoroughfare and Market Hill, offers a wide choice of local shopping and commercial facilities. There are top performing schools in both the state and private sectors, catering for all age groups and a wide choice of restaurants and pubs, together with a cinema, library and doctors’ surgery.

From the town’s railway station there are connecting services via Ipswich to London’s Liverpool Street Station. There are numerous local societies, together with a wide choice of recreational opportunities, including golf courses, tennis, football and rugby clubs and water sport opportunities on the river. The A12, which bypasses Woodbridge, links to Ipswich (8 miles) and beyond to London’s M25, Stansted airport (via the A120) as well as Cambridge and the Midlands (via the A14).


From the rail station in Woodbridge, proceed up Quay Street and beyond the crossroads with Thoroughfare/Cumberland Street. After passing Barclays Bank, turn right, immediately after the pet store and through an arch into Stone Place. Proceed across a small parking area and into an inner courtyard, where Alexander House has the middle garage of the three with parking in front. An adjoining personnel gate (No.3) provides access to the private garden, and in turn, leads to the front door.
