A delightful farm house in a secluded setting with established garden and overlooking open countryside
This Grade II Listed house is an attractive example of a Suffolk farmhouse believed to date back to 1576. The house features exposed beams and stud work, brick floors, inglenook fireplaces and a rare fireplace in the main bedroom. There is a delightful and well-fitted Aga kitchen. The majority of the rooms have outlooks over the surrounding countryside. The unusual connecting Georgian addition to the rear of the house offers scope for a variety of uses including a home office or guest accommodation.
The first floor has a wide landing with exposed original wide elm floorboards and feature plank wall believed to be part of the original rood screen. There are 4 bedrooms which have delightful views over the gardens and open countryside that surrounds the house. The main bedroom has an ensuite shower room and there is a further separate family bathroom. There is an opportunity to extend the accommodation upward (spp). The same original wide boards can be seen across much of the roof space and there is evidence of original plasterwork and a window. It is also possible to see where a staircase accessed the roof space from the landing.
The house is approached off the lane and onto a parking area to the side of the property. The front gardens feature attractive borders with some established trees and a particularly fine bay tree to one side. To the back of the house are more established gardens, a former piggery/hen run, pond and an established orchard.
Services: Mains water & electricity. Private drainage. Oil central heating.

The house is in a lovely rural setting with a delightful garden. The features are very attractive and with the addition of the Georgian extension it really is a very lovely house.Tom Orford
