Full Details

A short drive ‘Down the Hill’ brings you into Melton which has a convenience store, fish and chip shop and pizza take away, butchers and train station with direct train to London Liverpool Street. A little further on and you are in the Market Town of Woodbridge. This picturesque town has pretty much everything you could need from boutique shops, supermarkets, restaurants, hotels, schools, leisure centre, doctors and medical centre. Being situated on the banks of the River Deban the town offers plenty of outdoor pursuits, whether you fancy a leisurely walk along the river or want to be a little more adventurous with a spot of sailing.

This property was purchased by the current owners in 2004, who then spent the next few years, sympathetically converting and extending this iconic, building. No expense was spared on this conversion and many original features have been retained, whilst incorporating modern facilities including a sprinkler system.

The double front doors open into an entrance hall with stairs to the first floor, WC/Cloak room and door to the Kitchen /Breakfast room with adjoining utility room. The “L” shaped lounge complete with fireplace wraps around the central octagonal dining room.

In the centre of the first floor is an impressive octagonal landing with fitted shelving and featuring the original water gauge. Doors lead off to the master bedroom with ensuite, 2 further bedrooms and the family bathroom.

The second floor provides access to the wrap around roof top with potential to convert to a roof terrace (subject to planning).

The remaining tower provides flexible accommodation currently comprising, study, family bathroom, bedroom and music room.

Outside there is off road parking to the front and a small courtyard style seating area to the rear with ‘fire escape’ stairs leading from the roof area.
