A grand village home
This substantial Grade II listed house in The Street, Woolpit has its origins in the 16th century.
With mainly 18th century influences and additions, it has been more recently updated and improved by its current owners.
That work includes converting a dairy into an annex of holiday cottage.
The seven-bedroomed house occupies a prominent village centre setting but stands well within its own generous grounds of about half an acre, with backdrop of Woolpit’s magnificent village church.
