    About this property

    • Understood to have origins dating back to the 18th century the property was originally the Old School House, owned by the Ickworth Estate. This stunning period home offers a wonderful lifestyle opportunity and displays a wealth of high quality and interesting architectural features one would associate with a home of its era, including exposed timbers and studwork, period fireplaces, polished brick and stone flooring and internal cottage doors. Listed grade II as being of specific architectural or historical interest, the property provides a surprising level of tastefully presented accommodation possessing a most homely atmosphere which currently comprises; entrance hall, cloak/shower room, large drawing room with a fine Inglenook fireplace, sitting room with a wood burning stove (not fitted) and beautiful arched casement windows, dining room, bespoke fitted kitchen with Rayburn cooker & larder.

      On the first floor there are four bedrooms, one with an en suite wet room and a family bathroom, all of which offer delightful views across the gardens and countryside.

      The cottage is approached along a sweeping shingle driveway leading to a double garage A particular feature of the property are the charming front and rear gardens, both of which provide delightful outdoor areas, stocked with an abundance of cottage plants, shrubs and mature trees. The Old School House occupies a superb setting, affording pleasant views across open countryside and the historic village church. The property also boasts a paddock and two stables, perfect for the equestrian enthusiast as well as a greenhouse and kitchen garden.

    I was surprised at how spacious and well proportioned the cottage is. Coupled with the stables and paddock this is a very special village property.
