About the property

DESCRIPTION Dating back to the 17th Century and modernised over the last 200 years, the Old Rectory offers an array of accommodation. The current owner has restored the property to its former glory and many of its original features remain, whilst new additions have been thoughtfully added.

LOCATION Spexhall is a small village which lies to the west of the A144 road leading from Halesworth to Bungay. Spexhall itself has a parish church and a public house which is situated on the main A144 road located to the east of the property. The popular market town of Halesworth is centred around a pedestrian precinct with a wide variety of shops which cater for every day needs. Halesworth has a primary school, library, arts centre, doctors surgery and cottage hospital, which make it very self contained. The town is also well served with transport communications having a railway station which offers a service via Ipswich to London Liverpool Street.

DIRECTIONS Heading North on the A144 out of Halesworth, turn left at the Spexhall crossroads on to Church Lane. At the crossroads turn left on to Wash Lane where the property can be found on the right hand side after St Peters Church.
