An exquisite example of a heavily beamed Grade II Listed period town house located in the very heart of central Manningtree.


Manningtree is an attractive and desirable small town situated at the head of the Stour estuary being ideally suited for the water sports enthusiast, retirees, commuters and young families looking to benefit from well reputed local schooling.

The commuter can take advantage of fast train services to London's Liverpool Street (1 hour) from Manningtree's main line station whilst good main road connections are close by via the A120 and A12.

The picturesque High Street provides excellent local shopping facilities for everyday needs and includes a post office (sited at the Co-Op), bank and a library as well as an interesting and useful blend of the usual establishments you expect to find at an historic and traditional market town.

Schooling in the immediate area includes East Bergholt and Manningtree High Schools with Lawford's Church of England and Highfields primary schools.

There is a wider range of shopping and educational facilities in Ipswich and Colchester which are both connected by local bus and train services.

Recreational pursuits in the area are extensive and include sailing on the Stour and Orwell estuaries and also on Alton Water and Ardleigh Reservoirs where there are well known sailing clubs.

An afternoon walk from the front door can take one into the heart of nearby Constable Country with both Dedham and Flatford Mill, areas of outstanding natural beauty, within close proximity.


Be it the full height red brick inglenook fireplaces, the arched Oak frame stripped doors, the 18th Century wall paintings to the dual aspect first floor sitting room or the 16th Century circular staircase, no matter where you find yourself, a timestamped and captivating feature can be found throughout the approximate 3,100sq foot frame of this charming home situated just 100 yards from Manningtree's historic High Street.

Dating back originally to the 15th Century, The Corner House consists of accommodation sprawled across three storeys with interlocking attic rooms set below the red pan tiled roof with a large cellar boasting a full height red brick inglenook fireplace beneath.

Accommodation is flexible with three designated double bedrooms to the first floor and a dual aspect first floor sitting room having every potential to become a fourth bedroom.

On the ground floor a generously sized and South facing hand crafted Kitchen / Diner is particularly well lit naturally and beside the exposed baker's oven to the rear lies a thoughtfully designed Utility room. At the heart of the house, the beamed snug invites you to relax infront of another impressive Inglenook whilst the East wing, formerly of commercial nature, has been altered from two rooms to create a large dual aspect study space that extends to the depth of the house.

Outside to the front, off street parking is provided leading to the attached garage with wood braced barn doors to the front and a more conventional up and over door to the rear that leads into the established South facing courtyard garden to the rear of the property.
