Tenure: Freehold

Haughley House is an attractive Grade II Listed house that can be utilised for a variety of uses. Dating from the 15th Century with a 19th Century extension, the property retains many period features including oak panelling, ornate fireplaces, ceiling roses and a priest hole in the hallway.

The drawing room is a particularly impressive room with wood panelling, an open brick fireplace with mantle and French windows leading out to the gardens. The dining room and study both have French doors leading out to the croquet lawn.

The kitchen is well equipped with a four oven Aga set in a brick fireplace, a range of timber base units and a shelved pantry cupboard.

The attic rooms on the second floor are of a good size and are currently unmodernised. There is a kitchenette and a bathroom on the second floor, making this an ideal annexe.

Haughley House is located on the edge of the conservation village of Haughley, which benefits from shops and further amenities.

Haughley is approximately 2 miles away from the market town of Stowmarket, which has a range of shopping and recreational facilities, including a mainline rail service to London Liverpool Street taking approximately 85 minutes. The A14 is a short distance away and connects to Bury St Edmunds and the Midlands to the west and Ipswich and the A12 to the east.

There are a number of good schools in the area, including Finborough School, Old Buckenham Hall and Culford School.

Haughley House is approached via gates leading to a parking area for several cars. This leads to a detached double garage with a one bedroom annexe over. From the parking area, there is an archway at either side of the property leading to the rear of the property.

To the rear of the house is an area of garden currently laid out as a croquet lawn. Formal and informal gardens surround this area, including the walled and highly productive kitchen garden with temperature controlled greenhouse, a gravel garden and a picturesque shrubbery. There are magnificent trees in the grounds, including a large beech tree and an historic cedar tree.

There is a good range of outbuildings in the grounds, including two stables, sheds and a chicken run. There are a number of former agricultural buildings and a pole barn which could all be used for further storage or stabling, subject to the necessary consents.

To the rear of the house is a hardcore track which could be used as a separate driveway and parking area giving access to the agricultural outbuildings.
