Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Potash Farm is a contemporary farmhouse which was completely rebuilt in 2004 by the current owners. As a result the property is an energy efficient farmhouse which is beautifully presented whilst retaining a wealth of charm and character with period features throughout such as exposed timber beams and fabulous fireplaces.
Potash Farm benefits from light and spacious accommodation throughout. On entering the property you step into a reception hall which provides access to all reception rooms.
Of particular note is the wonderful kitchen/ breakfast room with AGA that serves as the heart of the home, with access to a utility and laundry room, also the generous drawing room with feature fireplace and access to the gardens.
First floor accommodation enjoys beautiful far reaching countryside views and comprises the master bedroom suite, with walk in dressing room and en-suite bathroom. There are three further double bedrooms, one with en-suite shower room and the other two feature vaulted ceilings. There are two further bathrooms. It is worth noting that there is potential to create either two further bedrooms or a more generous master bedroom by converting the roof space.
In addition to the main house is a detached 2 bedroom self-contained cottage which has previously been run as a very successful holiday let. It could also be utilised as an annex for guests or family members.

The property sits in a secluded and idyllic position near the hamlet of Thorpe Morieux, set in the undulating countryside of the River Brett Valley. This area of Suffolk is very beautiful, renowned for its gently rolling countryside, and within easy reach of good amenities.
Lavenham, just under 3 miles away, is a popular medieval town which offers extensive shopping and an exceptional range of restaurants. There are also a number of well-regarded schools in the area including Old Buckenham Hall and Moreton Hall.
Ipswich, Bury St Edmunds and Stowmarket have a much wider range of shopping, educational and recreational facilities. Communications are excellent with fast and frequent trains leaving Stowmarket, reaching London Liverpool Street from 85 minutes. There is easy access to the A14 linking with Ipswich, or to the west Cambridge and The Midlands and provides access to London via the M11. There are also good road connections to the east coast ports, and to the West with links via the A12 to the country's motorway network.
