About this property

  • Grade II listed and constructed of part brick with a thatched roof and part brick and flint with a tiled roof, Sudbury House is a particularly attractive early 17th Century farmhouse. There is a wonderful feeling of light throughout the house due to the majority of the rooms benefitting from a dual-aspect.

    The entrance hall with parquet floor opens through to the drawing room which has an inglenook fireplace and original bread oven. This room has French doors opening onto the terrace and gardens beyond. The sitting room has a parquet floor and two window seats overlooking the garden. The dining/breakfast room has a quarry-tiled floor, an inglenook fireplace housing a traditional range cooker and offers access to a lobby/boot room with a door to the outside. It also opens through to a good-sized laundry room with a door to a covered porch accessing the back garden. The kitchen which has great potential to update, has fitted cupboards and integrated appliances and benefits from a walk-in larder. A shower room/cloakroom complete the ground floor.

    Upstairs, there are four good sized double bedrooms, all dual-aspect, and a family bathroom.

    The house sits comfortably within very pretty gardens to the front and rear including a walled side garden, and has wonderful rural views across farmland, towards the ancient Drove on the hillside beyond.

    The gardens are mainly laid to lawn, with deep herbaceous borders, and numerous mature trees, under-planted with bulbs. Brick pathways and hedging separate different areas of the garden, including an orchard and a rose garden.
    Both ends of the house are flanked by brick, cob and flint outbuildings, one double- height. These are in addition to a pretty Grade II listed thatched staddle barn at the far end of the lawns, beyond a stone pond.

    Through double gates from the lane, a gravel driveway leads to parking for numerous cars in front of the double car port, which also has an integrated wood store and garden store.
    In all, about 0.7 acres.

I love the atmosphere inside the property, the large gardens and excellent walks straight from the door.
