Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This impressive property was built and designed in the mid-noughties to make the very best of its unique position on the banks of the river Stour. Consequently, all its reception rooms enjoy exceptional views over and beyond the river towards Higham, one the most picturesque areas of Suffolk.

Interestingly The house is thought to have been built on ground that was once the subject of John Constable’s 1820 painting “Stratford Mill” - one of a six piece collection that included “The Hay Wain”. With its entertaining space, views and location close to some of the area’s best restaurants, the property would be an ideal downsize for retirees or even a second home for those escaping London.

The House
The property was recently improved with a beautiful orangery that compliments the already open-plan living, dining and kitchen areas. Features within this space include hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings, wooden sash windows, a modern kitchen with a gas hob and wall uplighters.

At the back of the house there are two double bedrooms (both of which have en-suites), a WC, a utility room and cupboard storage.

The house sits in a good size plot that includes over 130-feet of tree-lined frontage following a meander on the river Stour. There is a private mooring (the house is just a few minutes row from Le Talbooth restaurant), good-sized areas of lawn and parking plus a private west-facing terrace for summer evening entertaining. There is also a detached single garage.

The Location
Within an easy walk, buyers will find an array of excellent public houses and restaurants (including The Swan, Le Talbooth and Milsoms) plus a shop/post office and a farm shop. For those needing fast access to London or Colchester there the A12 is easily accessible and Manningtree mainline station is less than fifteen minutes by car.

Points to note
We understand the property is connected to mains gas, electric, water and sewerage. We also understand the property has never flooded (there are flood plains on the other side of the river). EPC rating C.
