Description The Pink House is a beautiful Grade II Listed landmark village property believed to have been built around the time of the Battle of Agincourt which has been extended over the years to include a Georgian façade and to provide a very spacious family home.

The property has a lovely cottage homely feel with a wealth of exposed beams and period charm which are complimented perfectly with the tasteful décor and modernisation which has included modern bathroom suites and luxury handcrafted 'Orwell' kitchen.

The tastefully presented accommodation is very flexible in its use and comprises: central entrance hall, drawing room, dining room, sitting room, inner-hall, luxury kitchen/breakfast room, cloakroom, snug/boot room, cellar, four generous bedrooms (one with en-suite), family bathroom and versatile landing room (which has previously been used as a fifth bedroom/play room/study) and large attic space.

This exceptional property boasts some fine period features including six panel front door, timber studwork and beams (note the 'dragon' beam to dining room), carved stone fireplace to drawing room and former bakery to the rear with a retained brick bread oven.

More modern features include secondary double glazing, engineered oak flooring to dining room, luxury bespoke Aga kitchen, oil central heating and focal log burner set in the inglenook to the sitting room.

Outside there are largely walled private gardens to the rear. Immediately behind the house is a colourful patio garden with private sheltered seating areas along with a feature raised ornamental pond. A brick archway then opens to the lawned area of garden which gives access to the various outbuildings including the barn with hay loft, workshop, garden shed and double garage with additional large workshop area.  

Note The garage is accessed via a shared drive which is approached from the High Street. 

About the Area Coddenham is approximately seven miles north of Ipswich and is a typical English village with church, village shop, recreation ground and village hall. It won village of the year in 2002 for its community spirit and there are some fantastic country walks around the village.

It has a good mix of 'native' Suffolk families and newer arrivals and of older and younger people.

Within 100 yards of The Pink House are two nature reserves (Broom Hill and Mill Hill), both with masses of snowdrops and bluebells in spring, and the churchyard, a County Wildlife site with one of the best shows of wildflowers in Suffolk. The church itself is noted for its fine 'angel' roof and interesting medieval graffiti. Also within 100 yards of the property are the prize-winning village shop and café and the Country Club. The fine village hall which is suitable for badminton, dramatic and music productions, parties and other events also offers tennis and basketball courts and a bowls green. Opposite the hall is the recreation ground and football pitch and a great children's play area. The village even has its own beauty salon, The Beauty Spot. Haysel House and Mary Day Close provide award-winning accommodation for older people.

Coddenham is in the catchment area for the excellent Debenham High School (with bus service) and many Sixth Formers attend the outstanding Farlingaye High School in Woodbridge.

The village has an active church, History Club, Tennis Club, Mothers and Toddlers, Youth Club, conservation groups and football team. There are yoga and dance classes and Coddenham is also well-known for its biennial 'Open Gardens and Scarecrows' event.

There is easy access to the A14, A12 and A140 and regular train services run to London Liverpool Street from Ipswich and Stowmarket, both about 20 minutes' drive. 

Directions From Ipswich proceed out along Henley Road and through the villages of Henley and Hemingstone. At the Hemingstone Bridge turn left along the B1078, and proceed into Coddenham village along the High Street. The property will be found on the left hand side just after the left hand turn. Initially parking can be found opposite or adjacent to the village store. The property does have its own garaging and parking to the rear, however it may be difficult to spot the access track on the first visit.
