Substantial farmhouse in an elevated position with stunning views.
The property is a fine Grade II 16th & 17th century farmhouse constructed of a timber frame and plastered with the timber-framing exposed on the front, under a tiled roof. A wealth of original features remain including; wooden floors, exposed timbers, stone floors, modern mullioned and casements, with leaded lights and open fireplaces. The accommodation is laid out over three floors and internally the rooms are light and airy with high ceilings, large doors and attractive outlooks across the grounds. The kitchen is fitted with a range of units with work surfaces, an electric oven and hob and a utility room plus a cold room. The largest reception room at the rear is a more recent addition with French doors out onto the gardens. There is a ground floor bedroom and bathroom. The lower ground floor comprises the laundry, boiler room, games room, cellar & store room. The first floor accommodation provides eight bedrooms, two dressing rooms and six bathrooms (five en suite).
The house is approached over a long, shared driveway entered through a five bar gate over a graveled drive with a parking area to the front and side of the property. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn with established trees, offering fantastic views across the surrounding Suffolk countryside. A terrace runs along the side of the house, perfect for al fresco dining. At the rear of the garden lies an informal grass tennis court, kitchen garden with poly tunnels and a woodland area. Post and rail paddocks lie along the eastern boundary, perfect for the equestrian enthusiast.
