Exceptional converted barn & cottage in a quiet setting
Ivy Lodge Barn is a light and airy conversion of a period barn and outbuildings in a tranquil setting. The home and extensive grounds are exceptionally well presented. All the accommodation benefits from double glazing and central heating. The main timber cladded barn has great character with its original beams and open studwork combined with modern features like underfloor heating and a contemporary finish. Its sitting room has a double height vaulted ceiling with a full glazed gable overlooking the courtyard and rose parterre with pond beyond. It has an impressive full height brick chimney breast housing a woodburner. Open studwork leads to the dining room which flows into the music room. An oak staircase crafted by a local carpenter leads from the dining room to the mezzanine study providing a perfect place to work from home. Open studwork leads from the hall with its full height and full width glazing to the contemporary kitchen/breakfast room crafted by a local company. The oak staircase leads to a vaulted bedroom. Other bedrooms are arranged in the brick west wing.
The brick east wing houses the annexe accommodation. Accessed from the main house or via its own front door this self-contained cottage again blends period and contemporary features to a high standard. It includes a sitting/dining room, modern kitchen, 2-3 bedrooms, bathroom and shower rooms. Ideal for letting or extended family living. The attached workshop has its own stable door.
Off the driveway, near to the vegetable garden and greenhouse is a purpose-built double carport with 2 garages. Lawns lead to a pond, post and rail fenced paddocks and a belt of mature woodland. A delightful natural space for wildlife, this is enhanced by meandering paths and timber bridges leading to a further natural pond.

Ivy Lodge Barn is a very rare property in the market - Set in a wonderful peaceful rural position it blends a contemporary finish with real period character remarkably well. Set between Woodbridge & Framlingham & with fine views I am sure Ivy Lodge Barn will attract great interest.Peter Ogilvie
