General information


Woodbridge is a market town of great character located on the west bank of the River Deben, a stretch of tidal water much enjoyed by those who sail and row, while for the less energetic there are appealing walks along the river bank. The town has well regarded schools for students of all ages, medical facilities, a library, a variety of restaurants, two hotels, as well as a swimming pool and cinema. The railway station is close to the River Deben and has links running through to Ipswich, Suffolk's county town, some eight miles to the south west from where frequent services run through to London, Liverpool Street station.

There are good opportunities to play sport in the surrounding district and the picturesque Suffolk countryside provides many attractive walks and rides. The coast at Aldeburgh, Thorpeness and further north at Southwold is easily accessible and the proximity of the Snape Maltings Concert Hall is a further attraction of the district.

The property

The property is located towards the end of Drybridge Hill, nearest to Seckford Street, with the walk to the Market Hill passing the Seckford Almshouses and Fen Meadow.

The house is thought to date from around the 1930s and has proportions and internal features in keeping with the era. The front of the property is enhanced by the double height bay window and the internal rooms featuring tiled and other fireplaces. Alongside this, modernisation has taken place with a well fitted Kitchen and Bathroom and the front windows have been replaced with small paned sealed double glazed units.

An area in front of the house has been surfaced in brick paviors to provide parking for two cars and another addition to the property has been the erection of a workroom/studio room within the back garden which is insulated, heated and currently has sky and telephone connections. The building, which is lined internally in pine, makes an ideal home office.

The garden has been thoughtfully landscaped with established shrubs and trees creating an attractive setting.

The accommodation briefly comprises two separate reception rooms, one with direct access to the rear garden, a kitchen and a cloakroom on the ground floor, while the three first floor bedrooms are served by an attractively fitted bathroom.
