Description

Located in the popular peninsular village of Wherstead lies this stunning three bedroom detached house which was formerly a Victorian school and has been beautifully and respectfully converted by the current owners to make the perfect family home. The building dates back to 1843 and was built by Lady Harland in memory of her late husband and remained a school until as late as the 1960s. The property is full of original character features including stripped wood flooring and exposed beams and boasts an impressive south-facing rear garden with field views, ample off-road parking for several cars, and detached garage.

The village of Wherstead is situated in the Shotley Peninsular approximately three miles south of Ipswich. The county town of Ipswich is served by a wide range of local amenities including schools, University, shops, doctors, dental surgeries, hospital, two theatres, parks, recreational facilities and mainline railway station providing direct links to London Liverpool Street Station. The town has also undergone an extensive rebuilding and a gentrification programme principally around the vibrant waterfront which now boasts some lovely bars and restaurants.
