With 12 bedrooms, 15 acres of parkland and unlisted status, Cransford Hall is an exciting opportunity for buyers looking to expand. James Fisher is watching.
Cransford Hall is a classic Edwardian mansion set in 15 acres of gardens and parklands in the Alde Valley near Saxmundham.
The sprawling property is currently up for sale through Jackson-Stops with an estimated price of £2.75 million.
Originally built as a private residence in 1910, the hotel has also been used as a nursing home and boarding house, but has since been remodeled for family use.
Surprisingly, Cransford Hall and its 15,800-square-foot living spaces are not listed, meaning that potential owners can rebuild and renovate relatively easily, making this purchase attractive to those looking to create their own home without the need its actual construction.
Inside, the mansion boasts 12 master bedrooms spread over four floors (all serviced by an elevator if necessary), as well as four impressive living rooms.
The accommodation is extensive and includes a large basement. Many rooms feature dark wood panelling, as well as decorative cornices and large fireplaces.
Outside, the gardens and grounds are a mixture of regular lawns, mature trees, including a few large oaks, and abundant borders, as well as pastures and parklands.
There is also a separate two-bedroom gardener’s cottage on site.
Cransford Hall occupies a quiet retreat in the Alde Valley, just four and a half miles from Framlingham, home to a historic Norman castle and pretty town square. Here you will find many shops, as well as primary and secondary schools in both sectors.
Saxmundham – also four and a half miles away – has a train station with regular trains to London’s Liverpool Street, as well as large supermarkets.
The Suffolk Heritage Coast is easily accessible as it is only 13 miles to the east, and the Alde, Stour and Deben estuaries offer additional water sports opportunities.
