Set at the end of half a mile long no-through lane, Ashbocking House is surrounded by well-maintained agricultural land in a charming, mature setting. The house is constructed in part render and part brick and flint under a slate roof.
Internally, Ashbocking House has been beautifully refurbished, combining light and spacious reception rooms with comfortable bedroom accommodation on the first and second floors. A substantial reception hall with a galleried staircase and open fireplace on a York stone floor gives access to all the principal reception rooms including the "long" dining room/library.
Outside is an excellent collection of outbuildings including the guest annexe providing very comfortable ancillary accommodation. There is a further outbuilding providing useful storage and a separate double garage.
Planning Planning consent was granted on 15th January 2019 for a two bedroom ancilliary annexe situated in the woods. Reference DC/18/04754.
This property has 9.6 acres of land.
The gardens and grounds have been carefully landscaped, providing a tranquil setting with a selection of mature specimen trees. The property includes a heated swimming pool whilst across the lane there is a paddock with timber stables and the all-weather tennis court.
Situated at the end of a no through lane, Ashbocking House is perfectly positioned with stunning views in a peaceful and rural setting. The village of Coddenham is just 2.5 miles away and benefits from a village shop for essentials. The property is only 8.5 miles north from Ipswich, Suffolk's county town, which has a variety of amenities including further shopping and commercial activities, along with the town's railway station which offers direct links to London's Liverpool Street taking approximately 70 minutes. The A14 and A12 are both in close proximity and enable access to cambridge, The Midlands and the M25.
Ipswich itself offers many recreational facilities including sports clubs, golf clubs and water sports. There are good schooling options available in both the state and private sectors including Framlingham Prep and College, Ipswich School, Debenham High School and Woodbridge School.
