It is also home to the Crown Hotel, Barclays Bank and a Co-operative supermarket.

In recent years Framlingham was voted the number one place to live in the country and is perhaps best known for its magnificent castle which is managed by English Heritage. More latterly, Framlingham was included within the top four places in the country to live by the Sunday Times.

Framlingham is surrounded by delightful villages, many of which have popular public houses. There are lovely walks from Framlingham into the surrounding countryside and amenities such as golf in the nearby locations such as Cretingham (6 miles), Woodbridge (12 miles) and Aldeburgh (13 miles). The world famous Snape Maltings Concert Hall is within easy reach (10½ miles). There is also bird watching at the RSPB centre at Minsmere (15 miles). Framlingham is only 12 miles from the coast as the crow flies with the popular destinations of Southwold, Dunwich, Thorpeness and Orford. The county town of Ipswich lies approximately 18 miles to the south-west and from here there are regular services to London’s Liverpool Street Station, scheduled to take just over the hour.

Description The original period house is to the front of the plot and is adorned by wisteria. Approximately twenty-five years ago, a most impressive and substantial extension was added which more than doubled the size of the original dwelling to approximately 2,600 sq ft. The house is now deceptively spacious and on the ground floor is a superb reception hall which has east and west facing floor-to-ceiling windows. This leads off to a 22’3 x 17’4 drawing room, sitting room, dining room, downstairs shower room and kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen/breakfast room was refitted in circa 2010. From here, doors lead off to a garden room and utility room. On the first floor are four bedrooms, including a master suite with dressing room and en-suite shower room. In addition is a family bathroom. The house stands in mature grounds extending to 0.25 acres and includes a large double garage with an extensive parking area.
