Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Old Newton Hall A pleasantly situated Grade II* Listed timber framed former manor house which is coming to the market for the first time in over 150 years. The property is believed to date back to the early 1600s with later additions.

Of particular note is the sitting room with inglenook fireplace with bressumer beam over, with attractive soft red brick surround on a raised brick hearth with an inset wood burner.

Also of note is the Aga kitchen/breakfast room with a full range of wall and base units giving access into a good sized larder with a range of wall hung units for storage.

The ground floor also comprises drawing room, dining room with views over the rear garden, shower room, snug, study, boot room and scullery. The main staircase leads to the first floor from the hall, where access is given to a long landing with 6 bedrooms, dressing room and bathroom, with one of the bedrooms being fully panelled, which subject to the necessary consent, would make an ideal en suite. From the landing a staircase leads up to the attic room which, again subject to the necessary consents, could be made into further accommodation. 

Outside Old Newton Hall is approached over a hardstanding private driveway giving access to a gravel driveway with circular drive. The front garden is predominantly laid to lawn featuring a Folly with slate roof and decorative arched windows.

The property is partially moated and beyond the front garden there is a small area of paddock with gated access to the rest of the land. The garden at the rear of Old Newton Hall is again predominantly laid to lawn with a range of mature trees and shrubs. There is also a greenhouse. This area of garden is enclosed, with a gate giving access into the further grounds beyond, which is currently divided into paddocks where there is also a stable block and tack rooms (both in need of updating).

Within the rear garden there is a range of useful outbuildings which again, subject to any necessary consents would make an ideal annexe or such like. 

Location Old Newton Hall is situated on the outskirts of the village of Old Newton with the most wonderful undulating countryside views at the rear. The property is some half a mile away from the village itself which provides a church, village school, village shop, takeaway and bus service.

Nearby towns include Stowmarket approximately 3.5 miles (3 miles from property to train station), Needham Market 7 miles, Debenham 10 miles and Bury St Edmunds 16.5 miles and Ipswich 15 miles.
