Full description

Candlet Farm is Grade II Listed farmhouse believed to date back to the 17th Century and has been beautifully restored and extended by the current owners, to create an impressive and family home which retains much of its charm and character.
The traditional farmhouse presents a central dining hall and an elegant drawing room whilst a stepped hall, spacious enough to be utilised as a further reception room, links to a stunning oak framed, part vaulted, open plan kitchen/breakfast/family room which has oak floors and a fully fitted Aga kitchen. The kitchen also leads to a flexible use mezzanine room. The living room area with its glazed elevation opens on to a wide deck and overlooks the delightful trout lake. There are six bedrooms on the first and second floors above with a large central landing and two luxury bathrooms and shower room.

Candlet Farm stands alone, with access via a third of a mile farm track within the parish of Walton, on the edge of Felixstowe. The nearby village of Walton provides a good range of day-to-day facilities which complement those of nearby Felixstowe. The coastal town with its thriving port and award winning beaches offers a full range of shopping and commercial facilities and has numerous recreational opportunities including its Links golf course and sailing club. The A14 dual carriageway which is easily accessed links the county town of Ipswich and beyond Cambridge and the Midlands as well as London's M25 and Stansted Airport (via the A12/A120). The town's station provides rail services to Ipswich and beyond to London's Liverpool Street station.

The Cottage
Adjacent to the Farmhouse and with the potential to be linked is a two storey period cottage annexe offering flexibility for a variety of uses which has two bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor and a sitting room/kitchen on the ground floor.

Outside, Candlet Farm enjoys a delightful tranquil setting, at the end of a 1/3 of a mile private driveway. The Property stands amidst delightfully mature and sheltered gardens. These include a mixed woodland belt with a large natural pond, formal gardens which surround the house and more open gardens with the potential for the creation of paddocks. There is a picturesque trout lake and in all the property extends to about 5 acres.
To the west of the Farmhouse is a sheltered swimming pool overlooked by a series of terraces accessible from the main hall and comes complete with an open ended pool bar/barbecue lodge. A long shingle driveway sweeps past a traditional timber framed barn to an extensive parking and turning area fronting onto which there is a further range of park lodges and stores together with a workshop and hay barn. There is also a self-contained office.
