Stunningly renovated six bedroom country house with contemporary design, panoramic countryside views, and landscaped gardens.
Abbotts House, a six-bedroom country home situated in the village of Meeting Green near Newmarket and Bury St. Edmunds, has recently undergone a comprehensive re-modelling and renovation project that was completed in October 2022. The house has been thoughtfully designed to create contemporary living spaces that offer stunning views of the surrounding countryside. The property occupies an elevated position and is set within 1.3 acres of private gardens that have been landscaped with mature trees and manicured hedges.
Access to Abbotts House is via automatic Iroko hardwood gates through to a sweeping driveway that is bordered by lawns, leading up to the east façade of the house. At the heart of the ground floor is the bespoke kitchen, which leads to living spaces configured in a predominantly open plan. The neutral-toned spaces are designed for sociable entertaining and family life and feature expansive roof lights within the vaulted ceiling that invite natural light into the house. The west and southward aspects have glazed French doors that offer enticing views of the gardens beyond. This exceptional space is further enhanced with limestone tiles and underfloor heating. The formal drawing room is a wonderful period space that can be closed off at both ends. It features a large fireplace with a wood burner, and a Lewis & Wood wallpaper feature wall with a large bay window with a southerly aspect. The entrance hall leads to an adjoining study with dual aspect views of the surrounding grounds, designed with a bespoke floating work desk and integrated office storage.
A turning staircase leads to the first floor, which has six bedrooms and three bathrooms accessed via two corridors. The principal bedroom features a panoramic feature window that frames the exceptional countryside views, while the principle guest room has glazed doors that open to a Juliet balcony overlooking the terrace below and the far-reaching vistas beyond. All the bathrooms in the house have been designed with meticulously chosen materials and elegant finishes. The new heating system, currently configured for oil, is fully compatible with air and ground source heat pumps, future-proofing the house for renewables.
The landscaped gardens, which surround Abbotts House, are bordered by beds rich in herbaceous plants and perennials, abundant in colourful blooms during the warmer parts of the year. The ground floor spaces open onto a large, west-facing semi-circular terrace that basks in the sun for most of the day. Stone paths wind through the lawns to the tennis court, gated swimming pool and the par-terre garden, overlooking the rolling fields.
Set in grounds of about 1.3 acres
