Full description

Originally built as a Rectory, this huge Edwardian house provides a substantial level of accommodation displaying original features and offering tremendous scope and potential to improve, complemented by stunning landscaped grounds approaching four acres (s.t.s).

Enjoying a private situation within this small Suffolk market town, the generous accommodation currently in brief comprises a pair of original entrance doors opening to an entrance hall, with door to a cloakroom and a further door to a study with bay window to side and walk-in cupboard. The main reception hall is a fantastic space with fireplace, oak flooring, doors to a conservatory and oak staircase off to first floor. The drawing room is a huge reception with fireplace, superb ceiling height, timber flooring and large bay window overlooking the gardens. The dining room is a superb room for entertaining with large bay window overlooking the gardens. An inner hall has a secondary staircase to first floor and door to the three cellar rooms. The kitchen is fitted with a matching range of units providing plenty of cupboard and drawer space with Aga (green). The breakfast room area is light and airy with sliding glass doors opening to the gardens.

On the first floor is a spacious landing, five large bedrooms all enjoying wonderful views of the grounds and two shower rooms (one en-suite). A family bathroom completes the first floor accommodation. Stairs continue from the first floor landing to the second floor accommodation, which comprises three further generous bedrooms (one en-suite) and a cloakroom.

Although somewhat dated in places, the proportions of the rooms and views afforded are simply superb, and the agents would thoroughly recommend an internal inspection in order to fully appreciate.

Outside - Abbotts Court is approached along a driveway providing extensive vehicle parking, turning space and access to the garaging/former cart lodge and outbuildings. The grounds are an exceptional feature, providing a high degree of privacy whilst extending in all to almost four acres (subject to survey) and comprising formal lawned gardens, a fabulous variety of mature and specimen trees and a lake with fountain.

Due to the size of the grounds and the central location, there may be scope and potential to develop part of the grounds (subject to the necessary planning permissions being approved by Forest Heath District Council).

Situation - The property is privately situated within its own grounds in a tucked away setting, whilst being within a short walk of the local facilities and town centre. Brandon is a small Suffolk market town with a thriving local community accompanied by a good range of local facilities and excellent access to the main road networks including the A11 linking to Norwich.

Directions - When entering Brandon from the direction of Bury St Edmunds on the B1106, turn left onto Rattlers Road. Follow the road and turn right at the traffic lights onto London Road. Take the next left into Victoria Avenue, where the driveway leading to Abbotts Court will be found.

Services - All mains services are connected.
