About this property

  • Moat Hall is Grade II Listed, and offers wonderful period features. It is understood to date from approximately 1400. The early front section is thatched, and of timber frame, featuring two crown posts, brick flooring, and extensive exposed timbering internally. The staircase is Jacobean
    style, having been recovered from former Kings Head Inn in Stowmarket prior to its demolition. That staircase is in a spectacular hallway with inglenook style fireplace, and serving as a central circulation point for all main rooms. There are open brick fireplaces in the reception hall and the dining room, whilst the kitchen is well fitted, including an induction range master cooker. Double doors at the rear of the hallway lead to the attached annexe, which was built around 1980.

    Outside
    The house is approached by a tree lined driveway over the moat, with lawns to each side. Close to the house the moat forms an attractive pond area with adjoining terrace, and gardens lead around the house, to an extensive range of outbuildings, which may have potential for conversion, and have their own gated entrance from the road. (Subject to the necessary consents being obtained). Those outbuildings include a small barn, of historic origins, stable type building, previously used as a pottery, a covered open area, and a main barn which includes studio rooms
    to both ground floor and first floor for potential overflow accommodation. The barns form an excellent opportunity to convert subject to the necessary consents being obtained.

    Services
    Mains water, electricity and drainage. Oil fired central heating.
