The Property
Pushing open the leaded stained-glass door, one finds oneself in the spacious kitchen which runs along the back of the property and thus enjoys stunning views into the garden and across the river and meadows beyond. A utility room is found next to the front door, featuring solid oak base units beneath a speckled laminate worktop, and a shower room is just beyond. Back into the kitchen, one finds solid oak base units running along one side of the kitchen with speckled worktops sitting above, a large eight burner range oven, and a stainless steel double sink beneath a window which enjoys views into the garden. As one enters the dining room ones eye is immediately drawn to the stunning Inglenook fireplace with a large oak beam supporting the exposed brick chimney breast. A pretty sash window fills this room with natural light and is found across from the doorway through to the spacious entrance hall, which features a charming stained glass door to the outside, doors to the two further reception rooms, and the staircase to the first floor. The sitting room is found in the original part of the house and thus features exposed beams, sash windows to the front and rear, and a wood-burner. Across the entrance hall from the sitting room is the snug, which is also found off the kitchen, and enjoys spectacular views across the garden and to the river through a pair of French doors. Climbing the staircase brings one onto the landing where a circular stained glass window sits above. The master bedroom is found at the top of the stairs and enjoys sublime views across the river, fitted wardrobes, exposed floorboards, and a walk-in wardrobe. Across from the master is a generous bathroom with walk-in shower, separate bath, wc and pedestal sink beneath the opaque window. The boiler room is found next to the bathroom and across the landing from a generous guest bedroom with charming fireplace, exposed floor boards, fitted cupboard and walk-in wardrobe, exposed beams and a sash window. At the far end of the landing, beside the stairs to the second floor, is another charming bedroom which is brimming with character from the exposed beams and sash window. The final bedroom of The Willows is found up in the eaves and leads through to a rather unique observatory which enjoys simply sublime views across the river and meadows beyond, and opens out onto the two-tiered roof terrace.

Driving up to the property brings you past the brick and flint wall and through a pair of wooden five-bar gates into a large gravelled drive. Opposite the house is access into the large paddock which has a wooden fence following the boundary line and separating the paddock from the gardens. Past the front door and through a gate in a tall flint wall brings one into the large rear garden which is laid to lawn. An external staircase leads up to the extraordinary roof terrace which provides a fantastic space from which to enjoy the views. A further roof terrace can be found up another set of stairs from which the observatory can be accessed and gives a higher vantage point to survey the stunning scenery. To the side of the property a vegetable patch with raised beds sit in front of a small barn which provides useful storage. Past the vegetable patch the lawn extends down to the idyllic river with a variety of mature trees encircling the extensive lawn. By the waters edge, a number of mature Willows drape across the riverbank and a wooden bridge links the garden with the paddock.

The Willows is found on the outskirts of Earsham which is a peaceful rural village just outside the historic market town of Bungay. Bungay offers a good range of all the necessary amenities and shops, schools, antique shops, restaurants, The Fisher Theatre (now showing films) and leisure facilities including indoor swimming pool and golf club. The Cathedral City of Norwich is about 30 mins drive to the North and has a mainline train link to London Liverpool Street (1hr 54mins). Diss provides another mainline link to London and is 19 miles distant. The unspoilt heritage coastline of Suffolk with the lovely beaches of Southwold and Walberswick are a short distance away.
