Location Campsea Hame stands prominently in a standalone position on the edge of the village of Camspea Ashe. Campsea Ashe is a rural yet convenient village with easy access to the A12, Wickham Market and Woodbridge. The village has a shop and railway station with services running to Ipswich, which has connecting trains to London's Liverpool Street Station. The village is also home to Clarke & Simpson's Auction Centre. The property is conveniently positioned close to Suffolk's Heritage Coast with the popular town of Woodbridge being 7 miles to the south-east. Snape Maltings, with its world famous concert hall, is just over 4 miles away and Aldeburgh, with its sailing and 18 hole golf course, is approximately 10 miles. The pretty riverside village of Orford is 7.5 miles.  

Description Campsea Hame is believed to have been built by Reades of Aldeburgh in 1913. The late Edwardian era was well known for its impressive and solid building techniques and the house is of predominately brick construction with heavy rendered elevations under a pegtile roof. The majority of rooms have substantial leadlight windows which take advantage of views over the gardens. The house benefits from large rooms with tall ceilings which are approximately 8'11 on average. In total the property extends to some 4,600 sq ft and on the ground floor the house has four reception rooms, as well as a kitchen/breakfast room, utility room and downstairs shower room. All seven bedrooms, which are located over two floors, are doubles and, in addition, there are three substantial bathrooms and a second floor cloakroom and washroom. Campsea Hame has the great advantage of not being Listed, giving the buyer the opportunity to stamp their own mark. The house stands in lovely, relatively low maintenance grounds extending to approximately 6.8 acres. The majority of the garden is laid to lawn but contains mature trees. There is a paddock as well as a copse. The property has ample parking, a double garage and various other outbuildings. The grounds are also home to a heated outdoor swimming pool.

Outside The property is approached from the highway by a double gate which leads to a substantial shingle parking area. From here, access can be gained to the house, gardens and also the double garage. This is built in a similar style to the main house of brick construction with heavy rendered elevations under a peg tile roof. There are two up-and-over garage doors to the front, one of which is remote controlled. Internally, it measures approximately 23'9 x 19'9. There is a window to the side and rear and a personnel door. Adjoining the rear of the garage is a timber store which is home to a now redundant woodchip style boiler which used to serve the central heating system. Beyond this is an open-sided store. Immediately to the rear of the house is a range of brick built domestic outbuildings which include a wood store, shelved machinery store of 10'1 x 5'7 and a boiler shed which is home to the oil fired boiler.

Mature gardens surround the house and are predominately laid to lawn but contain an assortment of attractive and mature trees and shrubs. There is a fully enclosed heated swimming pool and a summerhouse which is home to the filtration plant and air source heat pump.

Adjacent to the gardens is a range of timber built store sheds, which could be an excellent footprint for new stables. Next to this is the paddock which, in total, extends to approximately 4 acres. Whilst laid to grass, it includes mature trees. The paddock has a field shelter and a secondary access point onto the highway. To one side of the paddock is a copse, which has a woodland walk with an abundance of bluebells in the spring. In all, the grounds extend to approximately 6.8 acres.
