    About this property

    • Church House is one of only a few true Georgian properties in the town presenting brick elevations under a pitched slate roof. The property is wonderfully presented with well proportioned and light filled rooms.

      The house is located in a stunning part of Hadleigh designated as a conservation area due partly to the historic building connections that surround the house. A gateway at the front of the house leads through a pretty front gravel garden with box hedging and steps up to the front covered entrance.

      The front door has a decorative window light above and opens into the tiled entrance hall. The hall runs along the side of the house with high ceilings, a panelled feature archway and a side door to the outside courtyard.

      The elegant staircase has a mezzanine cloakroom with cupboards. The dining room has exposed floorboards, a large sash window with working shutters and an open fireplace. The drawing room is a wonderful light-filled room with a central full height sash window which opens out to garden steps. There are working shutters, an open fireplace flanked on either side by recessed alcoves and intricate cornice work to the high ceilings.

      The basement floor has a laundry room on a lower mezzanine landing and the stair continues to the lower hallway which gives access to a further cloakroom, sitting room and a playroom (formally a cellar). The kitchen is well fitted with a comprehensive range of Shaker style units. There is a two oven Aga, recess for fridge freezer, granite worktops and modern kitchen appliances. A half glazed stable door gives access up to the garden. Off the kitchen is an arched former wine cellar which is now fully tanked and used as a side kitchen prep area/utility/storage.

      The first floor offers two double bedrooms and a family bathroom. From the master bedroom are stunning views across the churchyard and Deanery Tower. There are built-in wardrobes and a walk-in dressing room. The second floor has two further double bedrooms and a second bathroom.

      Outside
      The south facing walled garden is a particular feature of the house. There are established flowering plants around the walls of the garden, a seating area with pergola and a stunning back drop of the church. To the far boundary is a parking area with double vehicular gates. The gardens benefit from established planting which offers a high degree of privacy and seclusion. To the side of the house is a courtyard with an outbuilding which is divided into two areas used for machinery and general storage purposes and there is a gateway leading to Church Walk.

      Services:
      Mains water, drainage, electricity & gas central heating.
