About this property

  • Little Haugh is a charming period house in superb grounds extending to the River Deben of about five acres (subject to survey).

    Believed to date back to the early 19th century, the house is a pretty, thatched building with primarily red brick elevations. It is accompanied by a spacious three-bedroom annexe and sits centrally within the plot.

    The accommodation flows remarkably well and comprises well-proportioned and light filled rooms over two floors.

    The reception hall opens on to the magnificent, triple aspect drawing room, with a central open fire; a kitchen/breakfast room, with wonderful views over the garden and out to the river, and an AGA; the study, with a bay window; and lavatory.

    The first floor consists of four bedrooms, the family bathroom and a shower room. All the rooms enjoy far reaching views over the surrounding countryside with the west facing rooms benefiting from river views.

    To the side of the house is an outbuilding encompassing a three-bedroom annexe, an office and a car port. The annexe has a fantastic vaulted sitting room and mezzanine bedroom/office, a further two ground floor bedrooms, a kitchen/breakfast room and a shower room.

    Within the spectacular grounds are expansive areas of lawn, manifold mature trees and two large ponds. The land stretches to the banks of the River Deben and the western boundary lies within the Deben River Estuary SSTI. Included in the sale is a former landing stage, now requiring restoration.

On the banks of the River Deben, Little Haugh is in one of the most special and spectacular positions I have seen, with incredible views over the river and towards Woodbridge.
