    About this property

    • Set at the very end of a 500 meter private driveway this
      elegant period farmhouse enjoys unlisted status and is located
      within the rural Suffolk village of Willisham. Conveniently placed
      for the market towns of Hadleigh, Needham Market and county
      town of Ipswich, the property is the principal residence amidst three converted farm buildings. Crow Hall is the principal residence as the former farmhouse and has recently undergone a comprehensive program of extension and improvement with
      high-specification contemporary detail blending with original
      period features. Offering an accommodation schedule of over
      3,000 sq ft (including a one bedroom annexe), the property is
      arranged via two distinctive ground-floor reception rooms, a
      central staircase and rear study. There are lovely views from the house across the wooded gardens and countryside. There is a triple aspect L-shaped kitchen/ family room with underfloor
      heating, an outstanding entertaining space with nine-foot
      ceiling height and bi-folding doors opening to both the side
      and rear terrace and gardens beyond. The first floor has four
      light-filled bedrooms with the principal bedroom with an
      ensuite bathroom, a further ensuite shower room and family
      bathroom.

      OUTSIDE
      There is a wide parking sweep to the front of the house with a
      double cart lodge and just below the cart lodge is the self- contained annexe. The annexe is a former farm building with a
      south facing walled courtyard. The open plan living room has a
      vaulted ceiling, attractive countryside views and a fitted
      kitchen to one end. Beyond is the double bedroom with large
      shower room.

      The main farmhouse has a wrap around L-shaped terrace with stunning countryside views with oak border immediately accessible via the open plan kitchen/dining room and embracing the southerly side aspect. The lawn garden to the rear leads up to an area of woodland interspersed by various paths and walkways. The gardens are largely wild to the southern curtilage with a ditch to the north with a single-width
      bridge to a further expanse of lawn with post-and-rail fencing to the front and further planting to the rear. The lawned garden to the front of the house has a brick outbuilding to one side for garden storage and neighbouring the house is an outbuilding used as a laundry/boot room and further storage.

    This really is a great house and the contemporary finish is superb. The tucked away setting and elevated views make it very special.
