The Property

Lavrock House is a superb Grade II Listed village house with outbuilding potential, a stunning established landscaped garden and paddocks extending to 8.3 acres in all. Believed to date back to 1830, this attractive period property has a portico porch with Doric columns, stuccoed walls with rusticated qoins and rendered elevations under a hipped slate roof. Approaching 3,500 sq ft this lovely family home retains a wealth of attractive features including sash windows with hinged louvred shutters, panelled doors with oblong fanlights, high ceilings, decorative cornicing, ceiling roses and open fireplaces with wood burning stoves.

The owners have significantly improved the property with further potential to re-instate bedroom five to provide a sixth bedroom or an additional bathroom. Particular features of this fine and well proportioned house are the welcoming reception hall, generously sized reception rooms with full height sash windows and wood burning stoves, double aspect playroom/study and wonderful 27ft bespoke kitchen/breakfast room with underfloor heating. The property has five bedrooms, a family bathroom and separate cloakroom, with a useful utility/boot room and a small cellar with a wine store below the breakfast room.


Lavrock House has a sweeping in and out gravel driveway providing parking for several cars and access to the house and garden. A pair of electric gates to the side lead to the south facing courtyard and range of former livestock buildings (100ft x 25ft), workshop and garaging. The outbuildings are of brick and flint elevations under a slate roof, offering huge potential for a number of uses.

The stunning professionally landscaped garden is a particular feature of the property offering a high degree of privacy and ideal for entertaining. Impressive Indian stone terraces adjoin the rear of the house with cast iron railings and steps down to a lawn with mature trees and shrubs, orchard, herb and vegetable garden, child-safe koi pond and children's play house. The dog proof garden has a watering system, and electricity and water are supplied to the field. To the north, alongside the well maintained clunch wall, a grass strip leads to a gated bridge providing agricultural/horse box vehicle entry. Further along North Street, the 0.68 acre paddock can be accessed (both entry points access the large field). The 6.5 acre field is enclosed with horse proof fencing and has recently yielded hay.


Approximately six miles north-east of Newmarket on the Cambridgeshire/Suffolk border, Lavrock House is situated on a quiet lane, on the edge of the unspoilt village of Freckenham, largely surrounded by farmland, the village has a public house, village hall and church. Chippenham Fen, a national nature reserve and the popular La Hogue Farm Shop and Café are located just outside the neighbouring village of Chippenham. The nearby towns of Newmarket, Ely and Bury St Edmunds offer a wide range of local facilities including shopping, hotels, restaurants, schools and leisure facilities, with health clubs, swimming pools and golf clubs. Cambridge is approximately eighteen miles away and has excellent schools, shopping and other facilities. There is easy access to the A14, A11 and M11 and via these to the national road network. There is a branch line connection from Newmarket to Cambridge and Ipswich. Cambridge, Ely, Audley End and Whittlesford offer direct rail lines into London, with the fastest trains taking under one hour. Stansted International Airport is approximately an hour's drive.
