Fine village house set in delightful gardens
Daphne House is a particularly attractive and well situated south-east facing village property and Grade II Listed being of Special Architectural or Historic Interest. The house dates back to the early 19th century and is built of Gault white brick to the front of the house and mellow red brick to the rear under slate hipped roofs. There are numerous features throughout the house including open fireplaces, well proportioned rooms, large sash and French windows with working shutters and a cellar. The central entrance doorway leads through to two well proportioned reception rooms, both with open fireplaces and sash windows. The family room has double doors that lead through into the conservatory which in turn have two sets of doors out on to the terrace and gardens. At the far end of the hall is the dining room which provides a wood burning stove and access through to the kitchen and utility room. The hallway also leads through to the cloakroom and down to the cellar. The landing on the first floor carries through to four good sized bedrooms reached by two separate staircases. Two of the bedrooms benefit from en suite bath/shower rooms and there is also a family bathroom. From the first floor there are views over the river towards the lighthouse and the sea beyond. In addition there is a study area next to the rear staircase.
The house is set back from Daphne Road behind an established hedge. The graveled carriageway drive leads to the front of the house and also to the side where it fronts a garage. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn, surrounded by established trees and shrubs providing the property with a high degree of privacy and seclusion. A terrace runs along the rear of the property perfect for al fresco dining.
Pre-application advice exists for the creation of a new wing on and above the existing conservatory if required. Further information can be obtained from East Suffolk Council.
