A beautifully presented Grade II Listed townhouse with courtyard garden in the heart of Woodbridge.
Forming part of a group of listed buildings arranged around The Shire Hall and once home to Isaac Johnson, a renowned surveyor and topographical artist, 7 Market Hill is a charming 16th century timber-framed family home offering stylish accommodation arranged over four floors. The property has many retained character features including sash and casement windows with glazing bars, exposed wall and ceiling beams and some original fireplaces. As is usual in properties of this age, the 18th century six-panel front door opens into a generous sitting room with front aspect bow window, and feature fireplace with woodburning stove. Much like the sitting room, the spacious dining room has solid oak flooring, and features an exposed brick fireplace with steps descending to a rear aspect kitchen/breakfast room with a range of modern wall and base units including a feature circular breakfast bar. There is also an Aga, a double Belfast sink and two doors, one to the courtyard garden and the other overlooking the church. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a study, a useful cloakroom and a door off the inner hall to a stunning courtyard garden. The property also benefits from a basement utility with sink, suitable for a variety of uses, and a cellar/store which is accessed from the courtyard.
The first floor offers a generous principal bedroom with built-in storage and en suite cloakroom, two further well-proportioned bedrooms, one with a sink and the other a dressing room; all with feature cast iron fireplaces. There is also a contemporary family bathroom. A separate staircase off the landing gives access to a spacious second floor studio, suitable for a variety of uses including home office or as a fourth bedroom if required.

The property lies in a prominent position at the heart of Woodbridge and enjoys stunning views over The Shire Hall, the historic market square and St. Marys Church. The property benefits from a delightful south facing walled courtyard garden paved with limestone and bricks and accessed from the inner hall and stable door from the kitchen; an ideal secluded space for entertaining and al fresco dining. The vendors have also created a further small seating area at the rear of the property, accessed via the courtyard and the kitchen, a lovely retreat from the hustle and bustle of the town centre overlooking the church.
