A charming and characterful detached listed home with a substantial annex. Enjoying magnificent landscaped gardens and a rural aspect yet less than a mile from the station.
This delightful Grade II listed home has been lovingly extended and updated over the years to create a wonderful family living environment.
Internally the house offers an abundance of character with features including vaulted ceilings in the principal reception spaces, exposed brickwork, a mix of flagstone, brick and timber floors, together with some lovely open fireplaces. The kitchen provides the hub of the house with a multi oven Aga. All of these rooms have a pretty aspect over the gardens.
On the ground floor the accommodation comprises of a triple aspect sitting room, dining room, kitchen / breakfast room, snug, study and utility room. There is a guest cloakroom and additional shower room which is next to the pool area.
Upstairs, accessed via two staircases, there are three bedrooms and a family bathroom. There is a further store/snug/occasional bedroom over the kitchen.
On the outside and just to the side of the house is the self contained cottage style annex - which offers three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a kitchen. This is adjacent to the swimming pool area, which is partly walled and enjoys a sunny south westerly aspect.
The house itself is approached off the lane via a private driveway which pass through a paddock and yew lined parade, sweeping around in front of the house and through the gardens. These are a notable feature and provide a dazzling array of mature specimen trees, shrubs and borders with an aspect over the Stort Tributary along one aspect. One area of garden to the south east has been used as an open air wedding venue, with a pergola and formal lawns. Within the gardens sits a greenhouse and a large L shaped outbuilding / garden store.
In all, the house sit in a plot of around 2.24 acres.
Both the Annex and Wedding field have been rented out on occasion, providing a useful additional income (the current wedding license is for limited use)
