PROPERTY DESCRIPTION In the 16th century, Groton Place was the Winthrop family home. Adam Winthrop was the lord of the manor of Groton and from this house his grandson John Winthrop led the Great Migration to America in 1630. The original timber framed manor house with 15th Century origins was enhanced during the 18th Century to sit behind a Georgian façade with double-hung sash windows and cream rendered exterior. In 1985 this substantial house was redeveloped to create three individual homes. No. 4, the southern wing of Groton Place, has been further refurbished by the current owners to the most exacting of standards. The property retains many of the hallmarks and features associated with a property of this ilk and stature including an exposed brick fireplace with oak mantle, 9ft ceiling heights, double-hung sash windows, exposed timbers and studwork in addition to a large and impressive 16th Century wall painting. The accommodation is ideally suited as either a principle residence or weekend retreat. The principle residence is accompanied by further self-contained guest accommodation in the adjacent barn. Further benefits to the property include garaging, ample off-street parking and ornate south facing gardens offering an idyllic setting less than one mile from Boxford, one of the area's most favoured and well-served villages.
