General information An exceptional country house with a beautiful interior and landscaped grounds of about 4.5 acres on the rural edge of a popular and well-served village.
Coddenham Hall is an impressive Victorian family house believed to date back to 1868. The house was built on the site of the original Coddenham Hall tudor manor and estate of 216 acres that is believed to have been demolished in 1865. The generous proportions, pleasing layout, fine period features, high ceilings and large sash windows make this property very special indeed.
The property is approached along a beautiful tree-lined driveway leading to a parking circle in front of the house. One is instantly impressed by the portico entrance with columns and a traditional front door with brass furnishings and carriage lamps to either side. This opens into the welcoming reception hall from which all the ground floor rooms radiate; these include a beautiful drawing room and sitting room, both with open fires. There is also a study/snug and a dining room that adjoins the kitchen.
The stunning kitchen/breakfast/family room forms the hub of the house with 4 sets of arched glazed double doors opening onto an alfresco dining terrace; there is also a sky lantern above providing much natural light. The bespoke fitted kitchen has painted wooden units with wooden and granite worksurfaces incorporating a double butler-style sink as well as an induction hob within the island unit. A cream Aga is set in a fireplace recess and there is an additional double oven. An adjoining boot room with storage gives access to the utility room as well as to one of the two ground floor cloakrooms. The cellar is accessed through a floor hatch in the study/snug.
The traditional staircase leads to a mezzanine floor incorporating the master bedroom with fitted wardrobes, wonderful views and an ensuite bathroom. The principal landing gives access to the four further double bedrooms, family shower room and bathroom. All the bedrooms have far-reaching countryside views.
The outside The grounds of about 4.5 acres (sts) form an important feature. There is a wonderful approach along a tree-lined driveway leading to a circular parking sweep in front of the house with 2 single garages situated either side; there is a further generous parking area to the eastern elevation. To the front of the house there is an expanse of lawn interspersed with and bordered by a fine variety of trees. Trees throughout the grounds include a redwood, cedar, poplars, walnut, maples, oak, ash, larch, lebanese cedars, white multi-stemmed birches, magnolias, a tulip tree, cherry, apple and medlar.
To the east is a beautiful 'serenity garden' enclosed by neatly tended yew hedging incorporating a shallow wildlife pond, water feature, tall ornamental pear trees, irises and three multi-stemmed river birch trees. Further defined areas of interest include a 'romantic garden' with an abundance of scented roses, as well as an enclosed 'sculpture garden' (sculpture not included). A flagstoned sun terrace adjoins the rear and side of the house with climbing roses enjoying a sunny south westerly aspect. This gives way to a further expanse of lawn which stretches to the rear boundary bordered by a row of poplar trees with neighbouring open countryside providing a lovely outlook. In addition to the 2 garages, outbuildings include a detached barn and garden store.
Where? Coddenham Hall is situated on the rural edge of the picturesque and popular village of Boxford which has previously been included in The Sunday Times' Best Villages list. The village offers a good range of amenities including shops, a bistro pub, coffee shop, a doctors' surgery and a popular primary school.
