Location Wheatsheaf House is one of four new houses in a private development set off Victoria Mill Road, close to the centre of Framlingham. The development, which has been undertaken by local niche developers, is located within walking distance of the thriving centre of Framlingham, with its good selection of independent shops and businesses including cafés, restaurants, hairdressers, antique shops, a travel agency and delicatessen. It is also home to the Crown Hotel, Barclays Bank and a Co-operative supermarket. Off the Market Hill are a number of other businesses providing day-to-day services including pubs, vets, a medical centre and schools. Sir Robert Hitcham's Primary School is highly regarded and Thomas Mills High School is considered one of the best state schools in the East of England. There is also Framlingham College, which is served by its prep school at Brandeston Hall, some 5 miles away.
In recent years Framlingham has repeatedly featured in the top ten list of places 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 nearby locations including 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, scheduled to take just over the hour.
Description The four new houses in this bespoke development have been built and finished to the highest of standards, each being constructed so that no two are the same. Although benefitting from modern and energy efficient building regulations standards and interiors designed for modern life, the dwellings have been designed as a modern interpretation of the traditional Suffolk style.
Each of the four new houses has a ten-year new home warranty. There is underfloor heating to the ground floor with first floor radiators, each with independent zone thermostats. The houses have double-glazed factory finished timber windows from Bereco with ten-year warranties.

The kitchens are fully integrated from Howdens classic Burford range. Each has a Bosch oven/hob/extractor fan, as well as a fridge freezer, dishwasher and integrated washing machine. There are granite work surfaces throughout each kitchen. With regard to flooring, all of the houses have tiled floors in the hallways and kitchen/dining rooms, as well as the bathrooms and en-suites. All other rooms have fitted carpets. Throughout each house are ample double plug sockets and a TV/satellite aerial system in the sitting room, kitchen and master bedroom. In the en-suite/bathrooms are concealed cistern WCs and Roca Nexo contemporary sanitaryware in white. The showers in the en-suites and bathrooms are by Bristan, with Bristan taps and fittings in chrome.
