Part of a former Victorian school, now converted into a family home, has come up for sale in the Suffolk market town of Saxmundham.

Situated off Fairfield Road, The Hall was once part of the former primary school and dates back to the Victorian era.

It was converted by local developer Fielden Ltd between 2019 and 2020 and is now for sale offering a wonderful blend of old and new features - including the original sash windows, which have been retained and refurbished.

The open-plan sitting and dining room is a real highlight, as it makes the most of the space available and features double heighted ceilings in parts and a set of French doors, which lead out and into the garden.

The Hall enjoys a sought-after location and is set back from the road, approached by a wrought-iron gate and accessed by an Indian stone pathway.
