The Weavers is located in the idyllic and picturesque village of Debenham in the heart of Mid Suffolk. This Grade II* listed property takes its name from times gone by when it was a thriving outlet for the farming/ ancillary trades industry producing rush baskets and containers.

This is just one of the historic uses of this charming period building up to the present day. One of the joys of this house is its amazing flexibility of use from a grocery shop to a much loved residential home.

The 4,575 square feet (426sqm) of area offers both flexibility and much potential to be realised for a new owner to utilise and make their own. For instance, as a family home, with sufficient space for elderly relatives, as office/ shop space working from home - there are 8 telephone lines installed and ample room for a large number of employees to work in a pleasant village environment, away from the hustle & bustle of city life. Alternatively, the large rooms offer excellent space for antique sales/ book collectors or simple hobby space.

The source of The River Deben runs all the way from Debenham village to the mouth of the Deben at Woodbridge. It is said that this route from Woodbridge was a popular passage to the centre of Debenham during Medieval times.

Wool was transported to Flanders via this route as the sheep trade prospered in Suffolk/ north Essex as demand grew for woollen cloth throughout most of Europe. In the reign of Henry VIII many people from Flanders fled the raging wars and emigrated to England. How things have changed!

Today Debenham is not a primary manufacturing centre, although Bloomfield Installations (farming related) remains. There are many local amenities to include co - op, hardware shop, jewellers, large community/leisure centre, butcher, florist, hairdresser, bakers, chemist, doctors' surgery, fire station, antiques shops and newsagent.

The Weavers represents a unique opportunity to acquire a fascinating Grade II* Listed period residence believed to originally date back to the 15th/16th Century and retaining a wealth of character features including exposed beams and timbers and pargeting to the side elevation adjacent to Water Lane.
A substantial Victorian barn is located to the rear of the main house and has been sympathetically converted in more recent times to living accommodation on the first floor and currently include a vast area of over 50ft in length on the ground floor which is presently used as an indoor cinema with adjacent workshop and store. The property has enjoyed a varied history and has had a commercial/business use and was a prominent shop known as Baldry Brothers Grocery Store around 1910 and more recently has been a gallery. The property is now a residential dwelling but does provide interesting options for further conversion of the ground floor area of the barn subject to planning consent and may offer prospects for commercial use subject to the necessary consents.
