Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Clonmara Manor is a substantial Victorian country house offering spacious light filled accommodation set out over three floors. The property dates back to 1864 and is a fine example of high Victorian gothic architecture. The current owners have carried out an extensive yet sympathetic renovation project on the property inside and out including completely re-roofing and restoring the original attractive red-brick elevations.
Internally, Clonmara Manor retains many Victorian features including original skirting and detailed architraving, full length sash windows, mosaic quarry tiled floor in the hall and ornately carved stone fireplaces.
The ground floor consists of a spacious galleried reception hall which leads to the principle reception rooms and generous kitchen/ breakfast room which features a 6 oven AGA and serves as the heart of the home. An impressive drawing room with wood burning stove and attractive feature alcove is inter-connected to the formal dining room also fitted with a wood burning stove. It is worth noting that the cellar has been converted into a generous utility room/ home gym.
First floor accommodation comprises of five generous and beautifully presented bedroom suites all featuring en-suite bath/shower rooms. On the second floor there are three further double bedrooms and a well-appointed family bathroom.

Clonmara Manor is situated on the edge of the thriving and peaceful village of Elmswell which has a good range of amenities including a village store, post office, 2 public houses, school and a church. The nearby market towns of Stowmarket and Bury St Edmunds are approximately 6 and 9 miles away respectively and have a wider range of shopping and recreational facilities. The A14 is nearby linking to Ipswich and the A12 to the east and Bury St Edmunds, Newmarket and Cambridge to the west. Elmswell also benefits from a railway station connecting to mainline rail services at Cambridge and Stowmarket.

The property sits back from the road and is approached via a sweeping driveway that leads to the front of Clonmara Manor through landscaped gardens. The grounds themselves approach 3.12 acres and are primarily laid to lawn with a wide variety of mature trees providing privacy and seclusion. The gardens are established to the north, south, and west of the property and there is a secondary driveway that runs down the eastern boundary of the property and leads to a generous parking area. It is worth noting that there is a substantial timber outbuilding/workshop to the south of the main house which could be linked (via the cinema room) to the main house or could serve as a self-contained home office or gym if required.
