    About this property

    • Greensleeves is a delightful Georgian style modern house constructed from brick with rendered elevations enhanced by particularly attractive sash windows and stone column entrance porch under pitched tiled roofs. The house was built with high quality materials including terracotta roof tiles, the staircase, the kitchen units are all individually handmade and the reception rooms are individually designed and of elegant proportions.

      The accommodation is particularly well laid out with an impressive entrance hall featuring a curving central staircase. The main reception rooms open off the hallway, with the sitting room and dining room on one side, with doors leading onto the spacious south facing orangery. The orangery has folding doors leading to a natural stone patio. The kitchen is fitted with a solid oak fitted Neptune kitchen with granite worksurfaces and an island unit. The kitchen has a fitted induction range style cooker, Belfast sink and a complete range of fitted appliances, as well as a ceramic tiled floor. This adjoins the good size rear entrance hall with a cloakroom and fitted utility room.

      The house benefits from wet under floor heating on the ground floor and dry under floor heating in the bathrooms and orangery, double glazed windows and excellent thermal qualities which should keep the running costs of the house at a minimum. There is also a timed hot water circulation system for instant hot waters.

      The first floor affords two main en suite bedrooms both of which benefit from large sash windows overlooking the garden along with bedroom three. The second floor offers a further two double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

      Greensleeves is approached through electric gates over a gently curving shingle driveway which culminates in a parking sweep to the front of the house with a fine oak tree to one side. A spur leads to the double cart lodge, constructed in a barn style with side machinery store with a studio above, accessed from an external staircase The gardens and grounds are beautifully landscaped, mainly laid to lawns with sloping staged banks from which there are attractive rural views over the village and the impressive historic tower of St Peter and St Paul, one of the most famous of the parish churches of Suffolk. There is an enclosed south facing terrace with rose beds and shrubs and at the rear of the property lies a kitchen garden with raised beds providing flowers, vegetables and soft fruits. A gate leads through to the parking area and cart lodge.

    I loved the setting of Greensleeves, set within beautiful gardens and on the outskirts of the popular village of Lavenham. The house is exceptionally well presented over three floors and I was impressed with the light and airy well proportioned rooms throughout.
