    About this property

    • The Willows is a delightful family home that dates back to around the mid-19th century, with features such as oak panelled walls, wooden flooring and fireplaces. The property is constructed of red brick with dry lined insulation in half the house, under tiled roofs. The current owners have updated and modernised this stunning home with exceptional attention to detail throughout now offering a highly efficient home, which also benefits from being very low maintenance. The property is approached over a long gravel driveway with views of the parish church and surrounding countryside. There is parking for several vehicles on the driveway which is bordered by lawns and mature trees offering a high degree of privacy and seclusion. To the side of the house and accessed from the drive is the garage and outbuilding courtyard.

      The accommodation comprises a handsome hallway reception room with a fireplace, exposed floor boards, under floor heating and timbers. Beyond the hallway is the kitchen/breakfast room, a spacious open plan living area also benefitting from underfloor heating, a cloakroom and bi-fold doors out on to the large terrace. The kitchen includes a range of appliances, base units, shelving and wooden worktops. To the rear of the kitchen is a useful utility and game larder. The inner hallway leads through to the well proportioned, light and airy drawing room with a large bay window, fireplace and doors through to the garden room. The garden room connects the drawing room to the dining room, which has a dual aspect and fireplace with log burning stove. The first floor provides a large principal bedroom with fireplace and built-in wardrobes, an en-suite shower room and a charming original balcony off it to the front. A dressing room/bedroom also leads off the principal bedroom. There are a further three well proportioned bedrooms and a family bathroom with an original enamelled bath and separate WC. The annexe, with independent access, is ideal for accommodating guests or to rent out and benefits from a double bedroom, en suite shower room and kitchen/reception room.

      The gardens are a real feature of the property with a wide rear terrace, lawns, shrub and flower beds and borders, a productive kitchen garden, fruit trees and a garden tool and machinery store. The outbuildings consist of a boiler room, tack and feed rooms, garden store, kennel, oil and bin store, tool shed, workshop. There is an enclosed seasonal pond and two further ornamental ponds in the rear of the garden. Beyond the garden there are three fenced paddocks with mature paddock land with a gated rear access. There are also a range of outbuildings that include two stables, two good storage sheds, a pole barn, feed store with power and water and a range of six former pig pens. The property affords approximately seven acres.

    The Willows is an amazing house. I particularly love how the current owners have updated a period house into an energy efficient family home. The private gardens are delightful, surrounded by the superb Suffolk countryside.
