Virtual Tour

An elegant and sophisticated Grade II listed town house with period features throughout in the centre of Thorpe-le-Soken.

Brimming with restored and retained character throughout the beautifully finished accommodation at Ashdon is particularly impressive from the moment you walk through the front door.

Classic features such as high ceilings, tall sash cord windows with folding shutters, half wood panelling to the walls and exposed structural beams provide the ambience and a respectfully sympathetic nod back to the 17th Century origins of this well maintained property.

On the ground floor a vestibule porch leading from the Georgian facade opens into a light and air living room with an impressive focal inglenook fireplace with wood burner.

An inner hall leads round to the rear of the property into a good sized Kitchen / Diner that provides a wonderfully social space, be that for the family at meal times or for those occasions that we are permitted to entertain!

From the inner hall you can access a pretty and private terrace that lies between the shingled parking area at the front of the house and itself leads into the more formal South facing rear garden. Here you will also find a useful external laundry room with an adjacent outside cloakroom.

For a property in the centre of the town the plot size is generous and the rear garden commences with a sandstone terrace retained by picket fencing that is, in part, beneath a large pergola with climbing vines offering a sheltered retreat for outside entertaining and relaxing.

The remainder of the garden is predominantly laid to lawn with shrub and flower borders and is home to a large summerhouse with light and power connected and also a shed.


On the first floor you will find three double bedrooms with the first having a contemporary shower room fitted, two tall sash windows and a cast iron decorative fireplace. The second and third bedrooms are also doubles which can be found off the main landing. The contemporary bathroom off the landing opposite the first bedroom is particularly well fitted with a panelled bath with folding shower screen and thermostatic shower (standard and rain fall shower heads), heated towel rail, vanity sink, extractor fan and window to the rear elevation.

Also accessed from the landing is a potential fourth bedroom in the attic. This does have a permanent access and it spans the entire width of the loft space (into the eaves).


The current owners have diligently improved and restored the property during their stewardship to a high standard and we encourage an early viewing to avoid disappointment.
