Broomheath, Woodbridge, IP12
Guide Price £2,500,000


This exceptional detached home sits within gardens of over 3.5 acres in one of the most desirable locations in Woodbridge. Surrounded by trees and with a beautiful outlook we believe this to be a residence of significant local importance.

Originally built around 1930 this family home is now in need of updating and improvement and as such offers a truly rare opportunity. The generous accommodation extends to over 3,200 square feet and includes five bedrooms, three shower/bathrooms, four reception rooms, and double garage with workshop.

The property is approached by a sweeping driveway and accessed through a vestibule in to a spacious hallway with a grand, galleried staircase and feature window. Off the hall there's a generously proportioned Sitting Room with a bay window and glazed double doors that open to the garden and allow a wonderful amount of natural light in. Also accessed from the hall is a cloakroom with separate WC, a storage cupboard and door to the beautiful dining room with oak panelled walls, an ornate feature fireplace and another bay window overlooking the rear garden. The kitchen which is light and airey is fitted with an extensive range of cupboards, has an island unit, and integrated appliances including fridge/freezer, dishwasher and cooker, and delightful views over the front garden. In keeping with the age of the property there is a generous larder and access in to a study which provides an excellent space for those working from home. From the Kitchen there is access to the Sun Room, with glazed roof where there is a wood store, a further storage space and door to outside. Glazed doors from the Sun Room leads to the Garden Room which has views over and door to the garden.
On the first floor a spacious central landing has access to the bedrooms and bathrooms. The principal bedroom has a large bay to the rear and fitted storage with access to an en-suite bathroom. Bedroom Two is similarly proportioned and the further three bedrooms are all doubles of diminishing proportions as one would expect from a 1930's home. It is worth noting that access to the third bedroom is through one of the bathrooms, as per our floorplan.

The gardens extend to just over 3.5 acres with a generous lawned fontage and a double garage with power and light connected and an electric door. The surrounding garden is predominantly lawned with planting beds, mature trees and shrubs and an enclosure once provided a tennis court that could be re-established. The easterly boundary borders on to Broom Heath and to the south there are some partial views of Martlesham Creek.

Location - Set in a prime position within the vibrant riverside town of Woodbridge close to the Deben and a wide range of amenities. The town offers excellent schools both private and state run and a superb choice of shops, restaurants, cafés and bars. Leisure facilities are abundant with theatres, gym/pool, parks and sailing on the Deben being a particularly popular attraction. Other sports are well catered for including golf and tennis. Local historic sites of interest include the Tide Mill and Sutton Hoo and further along the coastline to the north are Snape with its famous concert hall and the beautiful coastal resorts of Aldeburgh and Southwold. The area is well connected by road, with the A12 less than two miles away, providing access to the A14 and beyond, while Ipswich mainline station provides regular services to London Liverpool Street (1 hour 10 minutes).
