5 bedroom semi-detached house – Hoxne, Suffolk

Guide Price £490,000

Property Details

Location Hoxne is, and has been for many years, considered as one of the best villages along the Waveney Valley and Low Street in particular is highly regarded having seen little change for generations. Market House is set back behind a small area of green and is just a stone's throw from the village shop and renowned Swan Inn, and a little further away is the village hall and the school. Hoxne has a very active community supporting varied social activities and is also steeped in history being the site of the largest hoard of Roman silver (now in the British Museum) and with its connection to King Edmund.

The village is very conveniently placed for access to wider facilities with a mainline rail station (London Liverpool Street 90 minutes) at the bustling market town of Diss just 4 miles away. Norwich and Ipswich are within 25 miles and the Heritage Coast around Southwold and Walberswick being within 40 minutes. This wonderful village house combines a peaceful setting with access to facilities.

The Property Market House is a fine village home Listed as Grade II indicating a house of architectural or historical importance. Whilst having a Georgian façade, the house is considered to be much earlier probably dating from the early 17th century. It is certainly an elegant house with a very balanced aspect, lovely sash windows with shutters and generous ceiling heights throughout. Whilst having a series of reception rooms, the current owners who have lived here for many years, tend to use the kitchen, sitting room and breakfast room as the hub of the house and these three rooms have an open plan feel which is quite unusual in an older property. There are the more formal rooms too making it both a wonderful family home as well as somewhere to entertain.

There are four bedrooms on the first floor with a fifth in the attic and each have been used as doubles. The bathroom is classical in style with a white suite of bath, twin basins, toilet and shower.

Outside One of the true delights of Market House is its garden which has been designed and created by the current owners over many years. The central lawn is flanked by sweeping borders giving a riot of colour and textures. Architectural features such as the gothic stone church window give structure and character to the garden throughout the year and there are various areas to sit and while away a Victorian summer evening including a summer house and flagged terrace beside the ornamental pond. For the keen gardener there is a greenhouse and at the far end of the garden there are mature trees and a walled lawn garden.

The driveway beside the house is shared between Market House and two others (one being the current owner's new property) and leads past an outbuilding which is part of the sale and used as a utility area for storage. Beyond this is a parking space and the drive continues further up to a grassed area for additional parking for perhaps three cars. Overall the property is set within 0.13ha (0.32ac).

Services Mains water, electricity and drainage are connected to the property. An oil fired Rayburn provides heating to radiators and domestic hot water, supplemented by night storage heaters.

Directions From Diss connecting with the A140 at the Scole roundabout and heading south towards Ipswich. Straight over the next roundabout and then first left onto the B1118 signed to Stradbroke.
