Yoxford, Saxmundham | Guide Price, £479,000

A beautiful 19th century converted coach house in a secluded location in 0.7 acres (sts) and a south facing terrace. Three very large reception rooms, kitchen/breakfast room, three first floor bedrooms and bathroom, cloakroom and utility room, wide garage. Many lovely unique architectural features.
This beautiful 19th century coach house which was formerly part of the stables for Satis House at Yoxford, was skilfully converted during the 1970s and since 1984 has been a much loved and well used second home. The house occupies a beautiful garden, which was once a part of the original park for Satis House and is thought to extend to about 0.75 acres (subject to survey). The property, which is hidden from the road in a secret location, is approached via a private road which serves Satis House, Satis Coach House and Manger Cottage. There are views from the garden towards the magnificent Cockfield Hall (a historic country house famous for the incarceration of Lady Catherine Grey in 1556). The well-planned, versatile, accommodation is arranged on two floors. There are three large reception rooms plus a generous sized kitchen/breakfast room. The largest room, the music room, has a dramatic beamed and vaulted ceiling and opens out to the south facing terrace. The unique curved wall of this room was designed to facilitate the turning of carriages into the old courtyard. There is also a useful ground floor cloakroom and a utility lobby. The first floor comprises two very large double bedrooms, a single bedroom and a family bathroom. The landing has a Juliet balcony via the old hayloft door and there maybe scope to re-arrange the upstairs space to create a second bathroom. The property is centrally heated by oil fired radiators and benefits from a large wood burner in the living room and a pretty fireplace in the master bedroom which was once the groom's quarters. Satis Coach House's extensive lawn is fringed by beautiful mature trees. There is an attractive paved terrace on the southern side of the property, ideal for outdoor entertaining, which is accessible from the music room, and reception hall/dining room. The driveway at the front of the Coach House leads to a wide (attached) garage. The property, which offers potential for a programme of careful modernisation, and conservation of the beautiful period architectural features, deserves an early internal inspection.

Satis Coach House is situated for easy access to both the forest and heathland of the Heritage Coast and the charming rural towns and villages of inland Suffolk. Yoxford is convenient for the A12 and Darsham railway station. The pretty village has a general store, primary school, surgery, garage, antique shops and more. Yoxford boasts a hotel, a fine restaurant, a café and two pubs, and the area is known for its specialist food producers, farmers' markets and food festivals. Golf courses and sailing can be found nearby and at Southwold and Aldeburgh, and the nearby Snape Maltings complex is home to the internationally renowned Aldeburgh Music Festival. There are ancient castles to explore at Framlingham and Orford and many remarkable churches including Blythburgh's 'Cathedral of the Marshes'. The RSPB's flagship reserve of Minsmere is within easy reach, and there are other wonderful nature reserves at North Warren, Havergate Island and Shingle Street.

THIS PROPERTY Proposals exist to build park and ride sites and a workers campus, in the nearby area as well as make road and rail improvements, to service construction of the proposed new Sizewell C power station. Whilst no decisions have been made on the power station or the exact location and details of the facilities or improvements, public consultation is continuing.

There are restrictive covenants which may preclude development of land and/or extending the main house in a manner that is out of keeping with the original architectural style. We believe that rights of way exist in favour of Manger Cottage to the front of the terrace and there are reciprocal rights for the driveway for turning etc. Applicants should rely upon their sales pack and searches via their solicitor for verification.
