*SOLD with an AUCTION CONTRACT*

Believed to originally date back to the 17th Century, this substantial Grade II Listed farmhouse offers particularly well-proportioned accommodation configured over 2 floors together with several attic rooms which also have potential for residential use (subject to any necessary consents).

Kenton village is a picturesque hamlet situated within a mile and a half of Debenham which offers a supermarket, doctor's surgery, leisure facilities and highly regarded primary and secondary schools. Framlingham is some 7 miles to the east and offers the 'Outstanding' Thomas Mills High School together with, for 6th form education, the highly regarded Framlingam College.

The property retains many of its original features including exposed timbers and framework, inglenook and open fireplaces to the principal rooms and overall accommodation briefly comprising: drawing room, sitting room, dining room, study, farmhouse kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, ground floor shower room, 5 bedrooms (1 with former dressing room off which would lend itself to an en-suite), 2 bathrooms and a separate WC.

The property is set within around 0.5 acres and approached by a semi-circular 'in and out' driveway from which access is gained to the single garage. A courtyard area to the side leads to the BRICK BUILT BARN/WORKSHOP which extends to around 800 sq. ft.

The property is in need of general improvement but would no doubt provide an elegant and highly individual home well suited to the larger family.

The delightful Suffolk countryside location and space on offer will no doubt contribute to what is sure to be strong prospective purchaser interest.

NOTE: During 2013 Japanese Knotweed was identified in neighbouring Sycamore Farm and had encroached into the gardens of Sycamore Farmhouse (albeit some way from the property itself).
This received specialist eradication treatment and a 25 year Warranty Certificate was issued in 2014.
Copies of the Report and Certificate are available within the online Legal Pack.
