Located in the Village of Wherstead and close to the River Orwell and the Shotley Peninsular you will find this very well presented, converted former school.

The ground floor will offer you versatile accommodation including a large living room, glass fronted conservatory/ family room, bespoke cottage style kitchen with range cooker, dining room and ground floor shower room.

The first floor has many of the exposed beams and original features of the former school, with the master bedroom and two good sized bedrooms and family bathroom.

To the rear of the Property is a large mature garden which commences with a sunny patio area and is mainly laid to lawn, with well stocked borders and fences to the boundaries and field views to the rear.

The current sellers have turned this former victorian school which was built in 1843 by Lady Harland in memory of her late husband and it remained a place of education until the 1960’s. Since 2001 the property has gone under a series of renovation and extensions, which has turned it into a beautiful three bedroom detached family home.

Conveniently located within 3.9 miles of Ipswich's historic town centre, its array of high street based shopping, bars, restaurants and the beautiful quayside. The property is also in close proximity to the famous Jimmy's Farm, The Suffolk Food Hall and the stunning hamlet of Pin Mill.

Transport links are excellent giving access to the A14 East to Felixstowe, West to Stowmarket and Bury St Edmunds and the Midlands beyond.
Regular trains are available to London and Norwich from either Ipswich or Manningtree train station (7.0 miles) which makes this an ideal home for the commuter.

In the opinion of Aaron the Local Property Expert for Purplebricks "This is a beautiful property and has been respectfully renovated, the rural feel is a huge draw and the convenience of the town close by will satisfy the townie amongst us. Take a look to appreciate what's on offer"
