Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Elm House Elm House is a well situated Grade II Listed former farmhouse believed to date back to the mid-16th Century with early 17th and 19th Century additions.

The attractive Georgian front with handsome sash windows presents lime washed elevations under a slate roof. The rear of the property is of timber framed construction with Suffolk reed roof and rendered elevations. The property is coming to the market for the first time in 50 years and is now in need of some updating and modernisation.

The accommodation is arranged over 2 floors and of particular note is the south facing sitting room with exposed timbers and large inglenook fireplace with wood burner inserted on a raised brick hearth. The ground floor accommodation also comprises entrance hall, family room, kitchen/breakfast room with a range of base units and Rayburn which controls some of the central heating. There is also a dining room with open fireplace and opening through to a sun room. There is also a rear hall with shower room.

The first floor can be accessed via 2 independent staircases leading up to 4/5 bedrooms with a family bathroom. 

Outside Elm House is approached over a hard standing driveway giving access to a 2 storey brick garage which could (subject to the necessary consent) make further accommodation. The gardens at Elm House are predominantly laid to lawn with a mixture of mature trees. The gardens wrap around the house and feature a pond.

There is also a range of outbuildings, one in a dilapidated state of repair and an area of hardstanding. Again subject to any necessary consents these outbuildings could make ideal further accommodation or stables. Vehicular access is given to this area of the garden via a 5 bar gate. In total the gardens and grounds approach approximately 1.50 acres (sts).
