Pryor Jones presents this substantial Grade II listed period home, which enjoys a tranquil village location and mature, private grounds of roughly an acre (sts). Believed to date to the early 16th Century, heavily timbered and displaying a wealth of character throughout, Ebbs House backs onto open countryside and offers spacious, extremely well presented accommodation, having been well maintained and updated over the years. For example, in the last few years, the boiler has been replaced, all of the sanitary ware has been replaced, extensive re-wiring implemented, etc. This property could be your very own 'Escape to the Country', having featured on the TV programme of the same name. The current owners viewed Ebbs House during the making of the programme!

Ideally suited to those requiring a quiet semi-rural location, within easy striking distance of main commuter links and the market town of Stowmarket, with its main line commuter rail link to London Liverpool St. and easy access to the A14, which itself provides access to Ipswich to the East and Bury St Edmunds and Cambridge to the West.

Briefly, the accommodation comprises: sitting room, study, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, family room/snug, utility, ground floor cloakroom, four bedrooms, family bathroom and family shower room.
