Handsome country house with views over the surrounding parkland.
Horringer House is a fine example of a Grade II Listed country residence, just three miles from the historic town of Bury St Edmunds and within walking distance of the grounds of Ickworth Park. The house enjoys 18th century origins with considerable early 19th century alterations, including a unique four storey tower constructed in 1850 in the Italianate style. The original house boasts mellow red brick, large sash casement windows with working shutters and dentil cornicing befitting of the era of build.
Of particular note is the splayed two-storey bay along the south elevation, offering spectacular views from the top bedroom. The accommodation is laid out over four floors and affords five reception rooms, a grand entrance hall with flag stone flooring and cantilevered staircase leading to the galleried landing. The central AGA kitchen/breakfast room is well equipped with a matching range of base and wall mounted units, with marble work tops over. An island unit provides further work space and storage. From the kitchen access is given to a lower ground floor utility and wash room as well as a tack room and additional store rooms. The property has been renovated in the last decade and now presents to a high standard whilst still retaining the original marble fireplaces, ornate décor and delicate plaster work throughout.
The annexe enjoys independent access providing an idyllic space for guest accommodation or short-term residential lets. Accessed initially by a door from the kitchen/breakfast room of the main house, which in turn leads to an internal hallway, walk-in boot room and a secured door leading to the courtyard. The accommodation provides a bedroom with en suite, kitchen/breakfast room and sitting room.
The property enjoys access via an in and out driveway bisecting two separate parts of the grounds to the house, both of which follow the sweeping pea shingle drive to the central courtyard around which the residence and various outbuildings are set which include; garage, log store, stable block, carport and further store rooms. The grounds are tastefully divided comprising a formal lawn to the west, a substantial water garden to the south-west and complimented by a maturing kitchen garden set within the walled grounds. To the east of the residence is the majority of the parkland as well as two individually fenced paddocks. Paths meander further throughout the woodland which comprises many fine trees including Oak and Beech. In all about 30.6 acres.
