A stunning village house with a wealth of features and stunning grounds leading down to the delightful river.


The village nestles between the nearby well-known and pretty villages of Chelsworth and Bildeston and the historic former wool town of Lavenham. Monks Eleigh has a thriving public house and community post office/village store as well as a new village hall. It is also home of Black Barns that houses art, crafts, garden and antiques (formerly known as Corn Craft). In addition, Lavenham and Bildeston provide daily shopping requirements. Monks Eleigh is a pretty Suffolk village, bisected by the river Brett and surrounded by undulating countryside. The nearby Sudbury station is also a favourite with commuters to London with recently updated trains and parking.


Alexanders is a delightful village house built from timber frame
and brick with rendered exteriors under pitched tiled roofs
(completely re-roofed in 2013). The house is believed to date
back to the 15th century and is Grade II listed of Special
Architectural and Historical Interest. There is a wealth of character including mullion windows, wide oak floorboards, brick floors and high beamed ceilings.

The house is set back from the road in the centre of the village and close to the attractive village green. The property has a southern aspect and benefits from large windows and which creates a light house with well-proportioned rooms and high ceilings. There are a wealth of features throughout the property including fireplaces, period doors, exposed beams, stud work and stone and oak floors.

From the property there are outstanding views from across the gardens which lead down to the river. There is a low level wall along the front garden with shrubs and paving. A drive along the side of the house leads down to the extensive parking area and four bay cart lodge that includes a lockable garage. The delightful gardens to the south are edged with flowering shrub borders and sloping lawns which continue past a pond, a small wooded area and down to the river.

Mains electricity, water and drainage.
