A beautiful Grade II Listed early Georgian house which was built to incorporate a shop which later served as the village post office. The property has been the subject of a sensitive programme of restoration and modernisation during the last several years in which the owners have gone to great pains to preserve and enhance original features like the inglenook fireplaces. The property benefits from oil fired central heating and has a small but private and sunny west facing courtyard garden. There is a double garage with vehicular access to the rear. The shop has been used as a third living room and the original store room at the back has been adapted for use as a luthier's workshop. These two rooms offer the possibility (subject to consent) for the property to fulfil a new commercial function, perhaps specialised retail, office or therapy space. The large bedrooms and living rooms might also lend the house use for bed and breakfast. Other possibilities include adapting the former shop and store room to create an integral self contained annexe. Shop Lane which runs to the side of the house is a "no through" lane and there are footpaths off the lane providing wonderful countryside walks. We strongly recommend an early appointment to view.

Little Glemham is perfectly located for access to the Suffolk Heritage Coast, the Suffolk Market towns of Saxmundham, Framlingham and Woodbridge and the sea side town Aldeburgh. The village has its own pub and there is an excellent farm shop and café in the neighbouring village of Marlesford. The nearest railway station is one village on from Marlesford at Campsea Ashe with connecting services to London, Norwich and Cambridge, via Ipswich. Little Glemham is well known for the magnificent Glemham Hall: a privately owned country estate which plays host to country fairs and open air music events. There are fine local walks along the village's many public footpaths and excellent cycle routes nearby. Other attractions in the area include the Snape Maltings Concert Hall, Orford Castle and the beautiful sea side towns of Aldeburgh and Southwold. There are many nature reserves, the most famous of which: RSPB Minsmere, has played host to recent series of the BBC's Springwatch. There are golf courses at Aldeburgh, Woodbridge and Ufford and sailing on the rivers Alde, Ore and Deben. Saxmundham has both Waitrose and Tesco supermarkets. There is a Coop supermarket at Wickham Market where there is also a primary school and health centre.
