Full description

History & Background
A stunning late medieval Grade II* listed country farmhouse set in enviable, part moated grounds with a traditional farmyard containing an extensive arrangement of useful barns, workshops and a beautifully appointed guest cottage.
The grounds include a wonderful outdoor pool garden with an enchanting pavilion for al-fresco banquet dining/party entertaining, a hard tennis court and there is plenty of scope for the equestrienne with two post & rail meadows together with one of the barns which would be ideal for internal stabling arrangements and associated storage.
The house itself has been beautifully restored, dating back in part to 15th and 16th Centuries with later 20th Century additions. The interior offers surprisingly high ceilings, together with notably bright accommodation; whilst retaining its characterful ambience, with some magnificent exposed timbers and fireplaces. The rooms are well proportioned too, each with differing but appealing views. There are also two staircases to the first floor allowing for a degree of versatility.
Setting & Location
The property is situated in a prominent position on the edge of Brettenham village, set centrally within its grounds, just off a country lane location and set amidst glorious surrounding ancient woodland and farmland. The area is both a noted conservation area and part of a renowned sporting/shooting estate (the season runs from October through to the end of January) and the rich village community is envied for its traditional country way of life.
The house, having been thoroughly enjoyed by the current owners for some 23 years, offers everything for those seeking leisure and lifestyle; from the sheltered sunset croquet lawn, to the outdoor pool with its great party pavilion to a modern tennis court, outbuildings for hobbies, horses and potential conversion to ancillary accommodation and mature gardens with productive kitchen gardens and orchards.
Located within daily commute for the City, choosing either Sudbury branch line station for connection at Marks Tey or Stowmarket.
