Property Description

Tenure: Freehold

River House is a nationally important Grade II* Listed building that makes a major contribution to one of the most picturesque scenes in Britain. The starred listing relates to its exceptional Tudor brick porch and a rare wall painting depicting life-sized figures in Elizabethan dress.

Steeped in history and believed to date from 1490 with 16th century and later additions. The original construction is on a jetted oak timber frame, many parts of which are still visible throughout the property. In around 1560 the distinctive Tudor brick tower was added to the front, and in Georgian times the jetted front was replaced with a flat fa?ade with sash windows.

The rear 'maltings' wing running alongside the stream has been derelict for some years, but clearly very early in origin. It is built with a timber frame and retains some fine original mullions and window shutters. It looks to have been constructed initially as an upper floor building only with bays underneath, possibly used as some form of meeting room or hall perhaps for a guild.

To the rear of the house is a fully walled courtyard garden, alongside which is a range of brick stables and former pottery workshop. Beyond the former maltings wing is a garage barn, a collapsed 16th century timber-framed barn and a large 19th century brick barn. Beyond here is another long rear garden running alongside the stream with open fields behind.

23ft reception hall, side and rear halls, drawing room, sitting room, dining room, 21ft kitchen/breakfast room, cloakroom and WC, former wash house and bakery room, boot room. Huge landing, 4 double bedrooms, bathroom, potential further bedrooms, derelict 60ft long Medieval rear wing on two floors.

Private driveway, fully walled courtyard garden 76' x 50', stream-side rear garden adjoining fields, garage barn and various outbuildings: Substantial 19th century brick barn, 58ft range of brick stables/workshops (former pottery), and collapsed 16th century timber-framed barn.

Requiring major renovation but with the potential to be a very fine house with generous outside space for a village location and period outbuildings.

Offered for sale with detailed planning permission and listed building consent under application number DC/21/01607 (Babergh District Council).

Location:
The village of Kersey is regarded as one of the prettiest villages in East Anglia, straddling a ford (known locally as 'the splash') across the River Brett and up the slopes of a little valley with St Mary's Parish Church crowning the hill on the southern side. The village thoroughfares are lined with a wonderful array of period houses and cottages. Kersey is also a vibrant community centred on its primary school, parish church, village hall and 14th century inn.

The surrounding area contains many other delightful Suffolk wool towns and villages, including medieval Lavenham. The market towns of Hadleigh (2 miles) and Sudbury (11 miles) each provide excellent everyday amenities whilst Colchester (15 miles) and Ipswich (12 miles) offer highly regarded schools and mainline railway stations for London's Liverpool Street.

The surrounding Stour Valley countryside is absolutely delightful - gently sloping, quintessential rural Suffolk. Country walks and numerous country pursuits are quite literally on your doorstep. The whole area has been immortalised by the paintings of Constable and Gainsborough.
