About this property

  • The General Wolfe is an enchanting Grade II listed village house set nicely back from the high street. The property features in Sir Nikolaus Pevsner's ‘Building of England' series and is believed to principally date from the 16th century. Situated in the heart of the most delightful village of Laxfield, the house has a beautiful sheltered rear garden and useful garden outbuildings.

    The house has handsome rendered elevations, large sash and leaded windows and an oak studded front door. Internally, the accommodation flows remarkably well, comprising wonderfully proportioned and light-filled rooms.

    The double aspect reception hall has a red brick fireplace and views over the garden; an oak staircase leads to the first floor landing and doors lead to the drawing room, dining room and a side cloakroom.

    The triple aspect drawing room is particularly impressive, with a red brick chimney piece with an inset wood burning stove, sash and mullion windows and French windows out to the beautiful terrace and garden.

    The dining room is equally impressive with windows to the south and east elevations and a further fireplace; a door leads through to the kitchen/breakfast room.

    The double aspect bespoke kitchen/breakfast room has a four-oven AGA, a further integrated oven and gas hob, and a larder. There is also a secondary staircase to the first floor side landing; beyond the kitchen is the utility room.

    The first floor comprises a large main landing/study area, four double bedrooms (two with adjoining shower rooms) and a family bathroom. There is a large attic space which is ideal for general storage.

    The General Wolfe has a delightful garden with lawns, specimen trees and delightful flower and shrub beds. To the far corner is an attractive raised fish pond with terrace. There are useful outbuildings including a work shop, a first floor store room over the garage and a wine store. There is off street parking with the house and a double garage.
