Victorian country house in Holbrook near Ipswich on the market for first time for £2.75m




A seven-bedroom property that dates back to 1845 is on the market for the first time, having been home to five generations of the same family since the Victorian era.

Woodlands, a historic country house in Holbrook, near Ipswich, boasts stunning formal gardens, parkland and woodland, as well as a heated swimming pool, and is up for sale with a guide price of £2.75m.

Estate agents Savills says Woodlands is an 'impressive and substantial' property, which also has a three-bedroom and a one-bedroom flat incorporated within the main house.

Inside, it's clear this home has a rich history the moment you step in, thanks to the reception hall's double panelled carved timber doors flanked by ornate stone columns and carvings.

Prospective buyers will also find four bathrooms and four reception rooms in this spacious property.

Set in about 45 acres in total, Woodlands' outdoor offering is just as impressive, with a courtyard of outbuildings, a home office wing, garaging, a conservatory/studio and the heated swimming pool.

You'll also find extensive shaped lawns, well-stocked flower beds and established shrubberies in the gardens which surround the house to the south, east and north.

There are a number of trees with a backdrop of shrubs, predominantly rhododendrons and mature trees, including beech, copper beech, cherry, holme oak, maple, horse chestnut and walnut.

There are around six acres of parkland in total, as well as a belt of woodland and three arable fields which are farmed under a farm agreement secured for three generations.

A bridle way cuts through two of the arable fields.

If that wasn't enough, Woodlands also offers a three-bedroom detached bungalow with stables to one side and cottage gardens.
