A gorgeous Grade II listed home of almost 3,000 square feet with waterside views and ancillary accommodation in central Manningtree.


Northlight on Quay Street, Manningtree was last available 22 years ago and has been much loved and thoroughly enjoyed by its current custodians.

As mentioned the total accommodation measures almost 3,000 square feet and is arranged over three floors with cellar beneath. Throughout every niche of this unique period home is an abundance of character that can really only be appreciated by coming to visit.

Currently there are three self-contained areas within the curtilage of this period townhouse each with their own purpose. The first and second floors contain the primary and beautifully appointed living accommodation that incorporates four double bedrooms, beamed receptions rooms, bathroom with sky lantern and an Oak fitted Kitchen (plus Utility) with an elevated view of the river Stour from the 'River Room' and second floor bedroom.

On the ground floor lies 'The Beaches Annex' - a modernised yet character filled self-contained beamed cottage with two double bedrooms, feature rich reception room with exposed beams and full height brick fireplace, modern bathroom and a spacious contemporary Kitchen / Diner.

To the front of the property, adjoining the high street is a prominent 'shop front' with existing popular and friendly business in situ.

The business occupying the shop is really well reputed locally and generates an income of £450pcm. Preference would be for them to stay on their existing terms, this area is completely self contained and operates Tuesday to Saturday 9am to 5pm as a hairdressers.

Externally the property is accessed via a secure gate from Quay street adjacent to the detached garage and this leads through to a charming paved terrace where French doors lead into the Beaches (ground floor) and wrought Iron steps lead up the the main house (first floor). More steps lead up to the roof of the garage which has the potential itself to create a further terraced area that would make the most of the beautiful panoramic view of the estuary.
