DESCRIPTION Rebuilt approximately ten years ago on the site of a previous farmhouse, Potash Farm offers the enticing combination of period character with the convenience and comforts of 21st Century living. Providing generous accommodation displaying a host of attractive characteristics the house stands in grounds of approximately 8.5 acres including formal gardens, paddocks and ménage. Together with a two bedroom guest cottage, there is extensive garaging, a purpose built stable yard and the barns (currently utilised for business purposes) offer further scope and potential.  

SITUATION Located at the end of a long driveway amongst rolling Suffolk countryside, Potash Farm provides wonderful privacy and seclusion. Approximately five miles from the nearest major road the village of Thorpe Morieux (pronounced M'roo) is one of the last places in Suffolk you cannot hear the hum of distant traffic. The walk up to the church is between cow fields and for the people who live here Lavenham is the local "big town".
