Sycamore Farm is believed to date originally from the 15th century and is Grade II Listed as of being of Architectural and Historical Interest. It is of traditional heavy oak timber frame construction under a plain tiled roof. The house has been extended in the 17th and 18th centuries to provide extensive accommodation, which incorporates at the western end a self-contained cottage wing which is separately serviced, but could be easily used in connection with the house if required.
The house is set back from the road at the end of a gravel drive and is surrounded by established gardens with a large railed meadow to the rear, ideal for those with equestrian interests. A wrought iron gate through an old brick and flint wall provides access to the shingled drive area in front of the house. There is a superb and extensive range of farm buildings which lie to the north west of the farmhouse which are detailed later within these particulars. Sycamore Farm lies adjacent to the tributary of the River Gipping. Internally there is a wealth of features throughout the house including exposed timbers, open fire places, sash and casement windows with well proportioned accommodation.
