Exceptional house overlooking the Dedham Vale

About this property

  • The Frith is an exceptional and very rare modern house set in a highly sought-after position on the edge of the village of Dedham and benefiting from far reaching views over the Dedham Vale. The house which was constructed by the current owners benefits from the character of a period house yet with the convenience and functionality of a contemporary property. The accommodation and outbuildings total just under 5000 sq ft and is remarkably well laid out with both the main spacious drawing room and kitchen/breakfast room benefiting from bi-fold doors opening out to the terrace and gardens. The drawing room also has a large open fireplace fitted with a wood burning stove and exposed oak flooring throughout. The kitchen/breakfast room is a particular feature of the house measuring 9.05m x 6.27m and benefits from a bespoke handmade kitchen with a four oven Aga, spacious central island and a large dining area opening out to the gardens and overlooking the Dedham vale. Outside, the house has a double garage with a studio above which is remarkably flexible and could be used as a home office. The mature gardens lead away from the house to a heated swimming pool and beyond a grass tennis court. The gardens are beautifully maintained with a fine selection of mature specimen trees, shrubs and borders. Beyond are fine far reaching views over the valley.
