Believed to date back to the 17th Century, with later additions including the red brick facade and most recently the link through to the Bake House, is this fine family home.

The accommodation radiates from the entrance hall, offering spacious and well-proportioned rooms of some elegance. On the ground floor are three principal reception rooms together with a kitchen/breakfast room, utility and boot room along with cloakroom and the link through to the Bake House. Whilst on the first floor are four bedrooms, and a family bathroom; there are two further rooms in the attic.

The Bake House forms part of the main house, offering additional ground and first floor accommodation to include the open plan family/dining room with part vaulted ceiling, a separate office/study, cloakroom, bedroom and bathroom.

Overall, the property allows for much versatility, either as a modest home with ancillary wing for guests, or a space to work from home, or for those that simply want room to entertain the whole family.

The property does require some modernisation to take it into 21st century living and make the most out of all the space which is on offer.

Local Authority: Babergh District Council Services: Oil fired central heating, private drainage, all other mains services are connected.

This property has 1.1 acres of land.


The house is set back within its grounds of about 1.1 acres, with mainly lawned gardens subdivided by some screening, beautiful arrays of planting and areas for outdoor entertaining. There is also a vegetable garden with greenhouse, pond, and a variety of mature trees to the borders. A triple bay cart lodge with store, garage and ample parking.


Little Wenham is a small village or hamlet with a local public house and church and is situated approximately two miles from Capel St Mary, which offers a range of local facilities and amenities including a doctors surgery, shop and primary school.

Littlegarth School at Nayland is 6 miles away, and Orwell Park at Nacton is easily accessible via the A12 and A14, and is approximately 12 miles away.

Ipswich and Colchester, the oldest recorded town in England, are nearby and both provide a much wider variety of shopping, educational, leisure and recreational facilities.
