The property can be found in the very centre of the historic market town of Woodbridge.

Recreational facilities include sailing on the River Deben, a number of well regarded local golf clubs, including Woodbridge Golf Club, which was founded in 1893, a cinema and sports centre, as well as a wonderful network of footpaths. Woodbridge also benefits from rail links to Ipswich, where Inter City rail services to London's Liverpool Street station take just over the hour. The popular Heritage Coastline destinations of Orford and Aldeburgh are approximately 10 miles and 15 miles respectively. The County Town of Ipswich is approximately 8 miles to the south-west.

10% deposit and pay the Buyers Administration Charge, well in advance of the auction date. An offer will not be considered unless a potential buyer has read the legal pack and is in a position to immediately sign the contract. The seller is under no obligation to accept such an offer. It should be noted that Clarke and Simpson cannot keep all interested parties updated and at times will be instructed to accept an offer and exchange contracts without going back to any other parties first.
