About this property

  • The house was built in 1972 and is constructed from brick and block with rendered elevations under pitched peg tiled roofs. The ground floor features well organised and light-filled accommodation. There are attractive views from the house over the delightful countryside to the front and rear of the house. There is a studio building to the side of the property which has a ground floor kitchenette and stair to the first floor studio which looks over the pool and woodland. A further door leads through to a long play room/ box room with Velux lighting. This building offers scope for annexe potential, subject to planning.

    Millfield House is approached over a short gravel drive with the double garage to one side. The established gardens surround the property on all sides and are interspersed with a variety of trees and with a heated swimming pool to one side of the property (the pool requires a new liner). The delightful gardens neighbour an ancient woodland and also open countryside. Beyond the main garden is a gateway which opens into a small paddock approaching half an acre and planted as an orchard with a further field gate leading back to the lane via a right of way over the farmers track and providing direct access to Polstead's 27 miles of acclaimed public footpaths.

    Mains electricity, water and private drainage (by Klargester unit). Oil fired central heating. NSH in studio.

The owners have had the house for almost 40 years and it does now require some updating but also enables a buyer to add their own mark to what is a lovely family house in a secluded rural setting.
