Full description

This substantial and unique family house, stands in a splendid elevated setting, approached off a small country lane, in a mature gardens of 1.75 (sts). The house was built approximately thirty seven years ago to a unique design, providing both living and sleeping accommodation on both the ground and first floors, allowing for unique flexibility and possible dual occupation if so required. The property offers superb scope for remodelling / some updating and the accommodation extends in all to about 3000sqft (including the garaging with room above) and represents a rare opportunity and an ideal project for someone with vision.

The spacious accommodation currently in brief comprises: A pair of traditional style entrance doors opening to a porch leading to the reception hall with stairs off to first floor and door to a study and a family room (15'x14') with fireplace, windows to front providing views to gardens and door to a kitchen breakfast room (20'x10') fitted with a matching range of units with built in appliances, oil fired boiler and door to a rear porch. Further receptions include a dining / playroom (14'x10') and a sitting room (14'x10'), both with windows overlooking the rear gardens. A conservatory (18'x9') and a ground floor bedroom / further reception or annexe room (12'x8') with adjacent ground floor bathroom, completes the ground floor accommodation.

On the first floor is a landing leading to a huge master bedroom (17'x14) plus dressing room (10'x7'), formally a first floor sitting room with feature fireplace, exposed stud work and french doors providing stunning views across the gardens. There are three further bedrooms (all affording wonderful views), large en-suite bathroom with an original suite, and a further shower room completes the first floor accommodation.

Outside - The mature garden setting is of particular note - approached along a small lane and over a sweeping driveway to parking and turning spaces, both at the front and side of the property, where a generous detached double garage / workshop (27'x16') is situated with a useful studio/office room (23'x8') over. The gardens are a superb feature extending in all to about 1.75 acres (s.t.s) providing the occupants with a good degree of privacy and stocked with an abundance of mature trees including a small orchard, shrubs, well stocked flower beds, pond with willow tree and lawned gardens.

Situation - The house stands well within its own grounds, enjoying an elevated setting in a tucked away location, situated off a small lane on the edge of the village. Stanton is a thriving village with an excellent range of local amenities including a primary school, village stores, public house, post office, garage and doctor's surgery. Stanton is situated approximately 10 miles north east of the historic cathedral town of Bury St Edmunds and its excellent range of schooling, shopping and recreational facilities. The market town of Diss (approximately 10 miles distant) also provides an excellent range of everyday amenities and has a main line rail link to London's Liverpool Street.

Directions - When entering Stanton from the direction of Bury St Edmunds on the A143, turn left towards Barningham. Follow the road and the lane leading to the property will be found a short distance further on the right.
