About this property

  • 10 Quay Street is an exceptional three-bedroom Victorian villa, which has been remodelled and improved by our clients to an impressive standard, winning the RIBA Suffolk Award for Craftsmanship

    Believed to date from 1876, the house has an elegant façade of white brick, sash windows and a slate roof.

    Internally, the contemporary and stylish accommodation flows remarkably well. The majority of the ground floor is taken over by the wonderful, open-plan kitchen and living area, with polished concrete floors.

    The sitting area, to the front of the building, is arranged around a handsome wood-burning stove; it flows through to the dining area and kitchen.

    The bespoke kitchen has beautiful Carrara marble work surfaces, integrated gas hob and double oven; bi-folding doors lead out to a courtyard with a wood-burning oven.

    Stairs lead to the first floor, comprising a generous principal bedroom with an en suite shower room, a further bedroom and the family bathroom.

    On the second floor is a charming third bedroom with skylights, a circular window with views towards the River Deben and exposed red brick.

    To the front of the house is an attractive tiled courtyard garden. At the rear of the house is a further decked courtyard with tiled walls and a pizza oven.

This is a particularly special house in Woodbridge, one of my favourite places in Suffolk. I especially love the fantastic, open plan kitchen/reception room, with bi-folding doors out to a private courtyard with a wood-burning oven.
