A five-bedroom property in the heart of the pretty village of Boxford, near Hadleigh, is up for sale at a guide price of £850,000. 

The house on Broad Street probably dates back to the early 16th century, with a later façade.  

Estate agent Carter Jonas said the property offers “incredible features such as exposed honey-coloured timbers, fine inglenook fireplaces and, owed to the Georgian façade, large sliding sash windows, which flood the property with natural light”. 

The six-panel front door, with architrave, opens into the entrance hall. A door to the left of the hallway leads to a spacious sitting room. 

This room features original brick flooring, a large inglenook fireplace and a tall ceiling with exposed beams.
