A substantial period property with a wealth of character, set within its own paddocks and gardens, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the outskirts of the highly desirable village of Dedham.

The property is entered via a porch leading into an imposing entrance hall; the downstairs cloakroom and principle reception rooms are accessed from here. A kitchen, pantry and utility room complete the downstairs accommodation. There is access to the gardens and an outside store from this end of the house. The first floor accommodation is comprised of five double bedrooms, two bathrooms and a shower room. On the second floor are two further double bedrooms connected by a spacious reception area.

Outside, there is a highly productive and well established kitchen garden, which is walled in part to the front of the property. To the rear of the house a swimming pool with surrounding terrace offers space for al fresco dining and entertaining. A series of outbuildings, including a coach house, barn, coal shed and store offer ample storage. A particularly special feature is a Wendy House built within the paddocks, with views across the woods and countryside beyond.

Grove Hill House is located on the outskirts of Dedham village, part of Dedham Vale which is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village benefits from a range of local shops and restaurants, along with a church and a primary school. Dedham is well located for access to the A12 for onward travel to London, which can also be reached via the direct train service from both Colchester or Manningtree stations.

Dedham lies between the larger towns of Ipswich and Colchester, which are 13 and 8 miles away respectively. Both provide a range of further commercial and recreational amenities, as well as many well regarded educational facilities, with schools such as Ipswich School, Orwell Park at Nacton, the Grammar School in Colchester and Holmwood House and Littlegarth at Nayland.

Manningtree (trains to London Liverpool Street from 60 minutes) 5 miles, Colchester 8 miles, Ipswich 13 miles


Driving South from Ipswich on the A12, take the B1029 signposted to Dedham. Continue over the bridge and pass the converted mill. At the T-junction in the centre of the village, turn right along the high street, continuing along the road out of the village. After approximately 1 mile, the entrance to Grove Hill House can be found on your right hand side.
