6 Bedroom House For Sale in Cumberland Street, Woodbridge

4 6 3

The Manor House is a stunning Grade II* Listed six bedroom attached family home that enjoys a convenient location in the heart of Woodbridge. The property is situated on Cumberland Street in a highly regarded part of the town that is within walking distance of the local schools, railway station, River Deben and the shops and facilities within the Thoroughfare.

ABOUT THE PROPERTY
The Manor House benefits from a well-stocked, part-walled southerly facing garden, off street parking and a garage abutted by a garden shed. We are advised that an architectural historian believes that the property dates from 1520 and features a wall painting above the drawing room fireplace and a jettied first floor. The house was sympathetically restored and refurbished for the current owners during and they have made it their home for the past twenty-five years.

The accommodation is laid out over two floors, three attic rooms and a cellar providing beautifully presented, flexible family accommodation comprising: entrance hall, cloakroom, a triple aspect split level drawing room, sitting room, dining room, study, kitchen/breakfast room and an Amdega conservatory overlooking the garden. The main staircase provides access to the en-suite master bedroom with walk in wardrobe/dressing room, the family bathroom, a WC and two further double bedrooms. A staircase accessed via a lobby between the sitting room and study provides access to the fourth and fifth double bedrooms. An enclosed staircase off the main landing leads to the sixth attic double bedroom, an attic landing/work room and the loft that houses the water tanks and two gas fired boilers. The cellar is equipped with a Butler sink and is used for wine storage, but has the potential to incorporate a utility room if required.

The property retains many period features including red brick inglenook fireplaces, panelled walls, sash windows and exposed timbers.

The layout may offer further potential for annexe style accommodation or multi-generational living (subject to the necessary consents).

Outside, the property is approached via a pair of gates opening to a brick paved parking area to the front of the garage and adjacent garden shed. The part-walled southerly facing garden is predominantly laid to lawn with well-stocked flower and shrub borders, established trees, shrubs and bushes, brick footpaths, willow fencing and a brick outhouse store incorporating a garden WC under a pan tiled roof. 

ABOUT THE AREA

The town is widely known for its beautiful historic buildings and wide ranging amenities which include a library, two theatres, cinema, sports facilities (including sailing, rowing, tennis, bowls, rugby and football clubs), dentists' and doctors' surgeries and a selection of highly reputable schools.

There are stunning riverside walks from the heart of Woodbridge and the town is well placed for visiting some of the Suffolk's best loved attractions, such as Aldeburgh, Southwold, Orford and Framlingham Castles, Sutton Hoo and the world-renowned Concert Hall at Snape Maltings. For lovers of the outdoors and nature, nearby attractions include RSPB Minsmere, Shingle Street, the forests at Rendlesham and the foot ferries at Bawdsey and Butley.
