OUTSIDE North Wing is set in the delightful, semi-rural village of Onehouse which is conveniently placed for access to the A14 and the mid-Suffolk market town of Stowmarket and its mainline railway connections, whilst within walking distance is Stowmarket Golf Club. The private school at Great Finborough is a short drive away. Bury St Edmunds with all it shopping and leisure facilities is 13 miles to the west in the direction of Cambridge

The accommodation extends to around 4200 sq ft and offers spacious rooms, many with fine views to the rear garden and surrounding countryside.

North Wing is approached via a private drive from the main road. This recently resurfaced road leads to a gravel sweeping driveway to the front of the house. This provides a parking area for several vehicles and access to the double garage with electric door.

A separate pedestrian gate at the side gives access to the rear of the property which leads to a large patio providing a superb sun trap area suitable for al fresco dining. It also provides excellent views of the lawned garden that gently slopes down to the large lake. There are three areas of wild garden around the lake which do not need to be mowed in the summer months.

Our vendor clients tell us the garden, although large, takes little effort to keep it looking lovely.

There is a woodland with mature trees and two large out buildings which provide space for garden machinery or cars as there is a separate vehicular access from a track by the local church. The outbuildings have pitched roofs and are 10' x 20' and 15' x 23' both with power connected. There is also a greenhouse 12' x 8'.

The superb lake is a haven for wildlife. The current owners have many happy memories of the family enjoying the gardens and lake with their rowing boat and kayaks which have provided hours of fun. The walking area around the lake is a delight. There is a floating pontoon bridge to an island which provides a fantastic area to picnic while taking in the view of the lake and back up to The North Wing. We understand from our clients that the lake is stocked with fish such as Mirror Carp and Rudd.

Various fruit trees and a fruit cage provide plenty of home grown produce.

In total the grounds are around 3.5 acres
