Property description

Believed to date back to the 17th Century, with later additions including the red brick facade and most recently the link through to the Bake House, is this fine family home.

The accommodation radiates from the entrance hall, offering spacious and well-proportioned rooms of some elegance. On the ground floor are three principal reception rooms together with a kitchen/breakfast room, utility and boot room along with cloakroom and the link through to the Bake House. Whilst on the first floor are four bedrooms, and a family bathroom; there are two further rooms in the attic.

The Bake House forms part of the main house, offering additional ground and first floor accommodation to include the open plan family/dining room with part vaulted ceiling, a separate office/study, cloakroom, bedroom and bathroom.

Overall, the property allows for much versatility, either as a modest home with ancillary wing for guests, or a space to work from home, or for those that simply want room to entertain the whole family.

The property does require some modernisation to take it into 21st century living and make the most out of all the space which is on offer.

Local Authority: Babergh District Council
Services: Oil fired central heating, private drainage, all other mains services are connected.
