A charming detached listed house in an iconic sought after village.

Location

Bridge House is situated in the picturesque and sought after village of Kersey to the north west of the market town of Hadleigh and 11 miles from Ipswich, Suffolk's county town. Kersey has a parish church and is centred on a small ford running through the village, which runs into the nearby river Brett. Hadleigh provides an extensive range of day to day leisure, recreational and educational facilities together with the popular village of Lavenham to the north west. Ipswich, which is within easy reach, provides a far more extensive range of services and commuters can take advantage of the main line station with regular trains into London's Liverpool Street Station. Other communications in the area are good with ready access onto both the A12 and A14 trunk roads giving access to London, the Midlands and the major motorway network beyond.
