A beautiful Grade II Listed house in this popular village, with garden and off-road parking.

Formerly part of the Angel Inn public house, and found in the centre of this popular Mid-Suffolk village, Seraph House has been lovingly converted into a beautiful family home. Dating in part to the 16th Century, the timber-framed Grade II Listed property offers an abundance of character throughout coupled with more recent modernisation; benefitting from an enclosed garden and central location, creating space ideal for modern family life.

A welcoming entrance hall leads through into the main reception room; a large sitting room with feature inglenook fireplace, complete with wood burning stove, beams and tiled floor, providing ample space for the bustle of everyday life. This leads along an inner hallway, with stairs to the first floor, past a cloakroom, to the kitchen/breakfast room and garden room beyond. The kitchen is a welcoming space, with bespoke cabinetry, wooden floor and room for a large table; with space for entertaining, the kitchen forms the heart of the property, perfectly mixing period features with a contemporary feel. Beyond is the garden room, a recent extension, which beautifully creates a flow between outside and in. Large, bi-fold doors offer a modern aspect, and a sky lantern provides plenty of natural light into the versatile space.

The period character remains upstairs; the main bedroom, with separate dressing area, which is currently used as a nursery (this does not have permission and is a stud wall which can be removed if required), and en suite shower room, create a principal suite. There are a further two bedrooms and family bathroom. Pale wooden flooring throughtout the majority of the first floor and velux windows along the landing help to highlight the period charm of the house, whilst adding a more contemporary twist.

Access to the property is via an arch off the main High Street, which leads through double gates to a gravelled area with parking space for a number of cars. The newly constructed brick wall curves attractively towards the rear of the property, to help create a private and secure outside space. A comfortable size, the garden faces east with an area to the side which is south east and is predominantly laid to lawn, and is bordered with mature trees with an area of decking ideal for al fresco dining and entertaining. The garden offers opportunity for further landscaping and further planting to provide an outside sanctuary in the centre of the village; the vendor's were in the process of doing this before they decided to move.


Situated at what was once the navigable source of the River Deben, the rural parish of Debenham is a popular, picturesque village with a thriving local high street and abundance of amenities; numerous independent shops, small supermarket, post office, vets, cafe, pub and doctor’s surgery.

There are two schools within the village - the well-regarded Debenham High School, rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted, and Debenham primary - as well as nearby independent schools, Framlingham College and Woodbridge School. A number of recreational activities can be accessed from the village itself, including at the community/leisure centre, various local walks and wildlife at the lake to the eastern edge of the village. In the wider area, there is sailing and fishing on the estuaries of the Deben, Orwell and Alde together with golf courses at Cretingham, Ufford and Aldeburgh.

Communications links are excellent: the nearby A14 offers access to the greater road network; a regular train service runs from Stowmarket station to London Liverpool Street.


From the A14 heading west, take the A140 north, turning right onto the A1120. After one mile, bear left onto Scotts Hill towards Mickfield. Continue for 3.5 miles. Upon entering the village of Debenham, continue on Gracechurch Street. At the T-junction, turn left onto the High Street. The property can be found less than a hundred yards on your right hand side.
