A seven-bedroom home in Grundisburgh, near Woodbridge, has come up for sale at a guide price of £1.6m - and with a shop and a cafe attached, it offers so much potential.
The Grade II listed home is currently on the market with Fine & Country and is believed to be one of four original manor houses in the village and dates back to the 1500s.
For centuries the property has been used as a site of business and commerce and offers the potential to continue this legacy.
Its charming period details, which include high ceilings, wooden floors and timber beams, lends itself to a number of attractive options, including as a boutique hotel, wedding venue or even a restaurant, although there’s also plenty of potential to develop and renovate it as a residential property in its own right – subject to the necessary permissions.
Currently, the property includes a large shop at the front which connects to an established coffee shop, fitted with kitchen units, an open fireplace and plenty of retail space. Towards the rear there is a two-storey store and a workshop, which offers further potential to become a studio.
The main house is accessed by a lovely wooden door at the rear, which features beautiful stained glass detailing and opens into an entrance hall.
There is a drawing room, dining room and sitting room on the ground floor, all of which are of a good size and include various charming details including a bay window in the drawing room, a marble feature fireplace in the sitting room and an impressive brick hearth in the dining room.
The kitchen is well-fitted with a good range of units, lots of beams and space for a cooker, while a separate utility room offers an additional place to put a washing machine, tumble dryer and freezer. There is also a ground-floor shower room.
Upstairs, there are seven bedrooms, a bathroom and a cloakroom, most of which have lovely period details, although some layout changes might make better use of the space.
You may also want to watch:
Bedroom one, which has its own dressing area, is adjacent to a good size bathroom and offers the potential to be converted into one en suite master.
Bedroom two retains an inglenook fireplace, exposed beams and original oak flooring, while a spiral oak staircase leads up to a large loft area with a window overlooking the garden.
The second floor is more or less split-level, with three bedrooms on one level and a further four accessed by a small staircase.
There is further potential to convert bedroom four into an en suite, as it currently includes a walk-in cupboard, and three remaining bedrooms are well-sized, with lovely views over the village green and the church. There is also a small kitchenette.
The grounds are mostly laid to lawn and there is a small stream setting part of the boundary, as well as plenty of off-road parking and access to a substantial barn.
