A fine Grade II Listed village house of great character and style with a wonderful, well-designed garden and extensive garaging
Having been painstakingly restored to a sympathetic and tasteful standard in 2006, Hardy House comprises two registered dwellings which have been merged to its original form as a Suffolk Hall House. Internally the house offers an unorthodox layout, yet it is both practical and pleasing, with emphasis to the principal rear reception rooms and bedrooms overlooking the fabulous gardens and Brett Valley beyond. Original features are evident, notably a 14th century arch adjoining the dining room and sitting room which gives a free-flowing layout. Two staircases lead to individual landings and as such the bedrooms are located on separate ‘wings’.
The south west facing gardens are a particular feature which are thoughtfully designed and beautifully presented which gently descend towards the Brett Valley, revealing delightful rural views towards Layham. Although extensive, the gardens are generally of low maintenance. Vehicular access is via Tinkers Lane providing parking for numerous cars which in turn gives access to a larger parking area. Beyond the carport and pergola is the detached triple garage and rear workshop with roof terrace which utilises the outside space to great effect, whilst also screening 8 solar panels. In all, the property covers some 0.26 of an acre.
Under Government guidelines from 13th May 2020 estate agents can reopen offices and people who wish to move home can now do so. Detailed Covid-19 guidelines and protocols have been agreed between the Government and industry bodies to ensure that key activities, including valuations and property viewings can happen safely, minimising health risks to clients, their families, or our employees.
Our offices are now open, and measures taken and implemented to ensure that they comply with all Government protocols in relation to COVID-19. Training and protocols have also been put in place, and detailed risk assessments undertaken.
Physical viewings and valuations are possible where our clients feel comfortable in doing so. This is the case across both our sales and lettings departments.
Our main offices at the Corn Exchange in Hadleigh allow for a distanced working environment for staff and visitors alike. We would ask all visitors to read the guidelines posted on entry, and to adhere to them when visiting our offices.
Our offices at 1 Market Place (Lettings) are compromised by their size and we are asking for clients to respect a ‘one visitor’ at a time protocol. Guidelines are also posted on entry.
When booking viewings, market appraisals, valuations or any appointment involving the need to meet, each appointment will be assessed, and protocols discussed with the individuals involved prior to the appointment taking place.
In relation to market activity we have been busy throughout the ‘lock down’ period, with a number of sales agreed, exchange of contracts on several properties, and strong market activity.
Please contact us to arrange appointments for viewings and valuations.
