Full descriptionThe Old Dog is a charming and spacious former Suffolk Inn dating back to the 17th Century and is Grade II Listed as a house of historic and architectural interest. The property displays many characterful features throughout including striking inglenook fireplaces in the living and dining room, original windows and exposed timber beams. The Old Dog has been well maintained by the current owners with sympathetic improvements made throughout.
Internally the entrance hall leads to all primary reception rooms including the substantial, triple aspect living room with views to the front and rear of the property, the characterful dining room with access to the former beer cellar which provides a useful storage area, or potential wine cellar. The breakfast room features a multi-fuel burner and leads to the kitchen with Raeburn cooker and benefits from a walk in pantry and separate utility room.

First floor accommodation comprises four double bedrooms, two with en-suite bathrooms, including the master bedroom which also benefits from a dressing room which could be utilised as a fifth bedroom.
The Old Dog sits on a quiet road enjoying a tranquil setting in the quiet hamlet village of Falkenham. The village is surrounded by countryside, with close proximity to the River Deben. It is well placed with access to the county town of Ipswich and Felixstowe both of which provides a full range of shopping, educational and commercial facilities. There are plenty of excellent walking and riding opportunities in the area together with access to the Rivers Deben, Orwell and Stour for the sailing enthusiast.
For the commuter the A14 is approximately 2 miles away with its fast access to the Midlands and via the A12 and M25 to London.
To the front of the property is a small parterre garden with shrubbery borders and a central pathway leading to the front door. The driveway is to the left of the property and leads to a turning circle which provides ample parking and also provides access to the rear garden.
The Old Dog benefits from a 2½ acre garden, which is mainly laid to lawn with an array of mature trees including evergreen and fruit trees.
Further natural grounds beyond the lawn form a natural wildlife habitat with trees and seasonal plants. The grounds provide sufficient room
for a horse if desired.
The property also benefits from a group of storage outbuildings near the turning circle and to the left of the property is a further useful outbuilding with W.C, which was the Inn's former Ladies and Gents W.Cs.
