Lot One Manor Farmhouse
There is a real sense of arrival as you approach this magnificent Farmhouse with its wide, grass-fringed driveway serving the separately owned Sudborough Manor and Manor Farm Bungalow (Lot 3), before arriving at Manor Farmhouse to gravel parking, garages to the north east of the house and secondary access to Newton Lane. With elegant and symmetrical principal rooms retaining the grace, proportions and sought after features of the Georgian era, the front door opens from the garden into an inviting entrance hallway giving access to the reception rooms, laundry room, cloakroom and kitchen. The beautiful drawing room, an amalgamation of two rooms spanning the length of the house, has a window seat overlooking the attractive gardens and a wood burning stove within the fireplace set beneath a bressummer beam. The elegant dining room has a similar window seat and attractive fireplace, with two steps leading up to the kitchen.
The spacious family kitchen and breakfast room allows plenty of room for informal dining. It is fitted with a hand-made Neptune suite beneath granite work tops, incorporating a two-door Everhot electric range together with separate hob and oven encased within the large central island. There is a separate pantry and access to the garden and driveway from two kitchen doors.
The first floor landing provides access to the elegant principal bedroom, with large en suite bathroom and two further double bedrooms; one Jack and Jill to the family bathroom. The second floor occupies the remaining four bedrooms, together with a family shower room.
The gardens wrap around the house and are beautifully presented. The principal largely walled formal garden lies to the south, with landscaped lawns, deep flowering borders and mixed deciduous and fruit trees. To the north of the house, there is extensive gravelled parking and a detached double garage block, offering a large storage area with electricity and light, close to the secondary access to Newton Lane. The land lies across the drive from the garden and extends to the north in a ring-fenced block, ideal for grazing or for children's games and extending to circa 3.4 acres (subject to measured survey).
