Handsome farmhouse with excellent outbuildings
Ivy House Farm is a rare offering of a handsome farmhouse, set in a rural position, and retaining associated outbuildings including a wonderful timber frame thatched barn.
The main house, with 17th century origins and later additions, enjoys a south to south-west aspect looking out over the grounds and beyond to unspoilt and gently undulating countryside of the neighbouring Raveningham Estate. The house enjoys plenty of period detail from exposed beams to fireplaces and sash windows. There are lovely rooms throughout, in particular a kitchen/breakfast room with Aga, a sitting room with Jetmaster, a dual aspect drawing room, and a charming dining room. There are four main bedrooms on the first floor, two with distinctive vaulted ceilings, and two bathrooms. There are three attic rooms, one of which could be a further bedroom, and a useful bedroom on the ground floor, with adjoining wet room.
Many of the rooms enjoy views out to the delightful gardens and farmland beyond.
Within the grounds is an impressive Grade II listed timber frame barn, in excellent condition given the age having been well preserved during the current ownership including a completely new thatch in 2019. The barn measures 58'10 x 33'8 and would be suitable for a variety of uses, with the open aspect out to open countryside. To the north of the main barn are some former farm buildings, now used for storage, with a large room with window providing an excellent view of countryside. These buildings could be utilised in many ways.
Ivy House Farm is approached via a gravelled drive sweeping down to a parking and turning area adjoining a two bay car port. This area leads on to the house and barns. The mature gardens and grounds of about 1.75 acres connect all the buildings and provide many points of interest. There are two ponds, some fine specimen trees, orchard, kitchen garden with raised beds, hard standing area adjoining the outbuildings, and a garden to the main house with herbaceous beds and shrubs. The boundaries are mature to the north and west but left open by design to the south-west to make the most of the rural setting.
