Full descriptionSmallwood Farm House is a stunning and enchanting Grade II Listed property filled with character and charm. The property was part of a working farm for over 500 years and has been sympathetically restored, retaining many original features, such as two large inglenook fireplaces, one of which has the original salt cupboard, mullion windows with the notches from the original shutters and 18th century metal window latches.
Smallwood Farm House opens into a light and airy reception hall, which features a large brick inglenook fireplace fitted with pamment hearth and bressummer beam and original re-laid herringbone brick floor. The reception hall provides access to the main reception rooms including the double aspect drawing room, partially divided by open studwork, with exposed timbers, mullion windows and a substantial 18th century corner fireplace with herringbone brick hearth. This provides a fantastic and character filled space for entertaining. The formal dining room also features an open inglenook fireplace and has stunning exposed beams and wide oak floorboards. A small staircase leads up to the Cheese Loft which is full of character, offering a bedroom which has a dramatic vaulted ceiling, a bathroom with exposed chimney breast and beams, and a single bedroom.
From the dining room, a utility room, cloakroom and the kitchen/breakfast room can be accessed. The kitchen has triple aspect views across the gardens, painted beams and studwork. The ground floor is completed by a study with built in desk, work surfaces and a fantastic outlook over the garden and stream.
The first floor of Smallwood Farm House comprises a large master bedroom, with walk in wardrobe, ensuite bathroom and fantastic views across the pond and surrounding countryside. A library landing, further bedroom and family bathroom complete the first floor. Stairs lead up to the second floor in the eaves with two further bedrooms, one of which is currently used as an office.
Smallwood Farm House enjoys a fantastic position, surrounded by undulating countryside and country walks with the benefits of easy access to local road and rail links. The property is set 1.5 miles from the charming village of Felsham which provides a post office store, a delightful pub and a thriving community. Bury St. Edmunds, 8.4 miles away, provides a more extensive range of amenities. There is also a wide selection of both public and private schools in the district.
Communications are excellent with fast and frequent trains leaving from both Bury St Edmunds and Stowmarket, reaching London Liverpool Street in 75 minutes. There is easy access to the A14 linking with Ipswich, the A12 to the east and Cambridge and London via M11 to the west.
The exquisite gardens of Smallwood Farm House have been carefully created and maintained, with a variety of plants, wild grasses and trees. Key features of the garden include a small stream which runs along the side of the house, a formal herb garden, a mini orchard with crab apple, quince and mulberry trees, two natural ponds, a large vegetable garden with raised beds and an extensive ancient meadow.
Smallwood Farm House and its gardens have been featured widely in national magazines including Country Living, Homes and Gardens and The English Garden and BBC2's Great British Garden Revival as well as the best-selling Dream Gardens of England.
Two Suffolk Barns provide plenty of versatile space and have been stabilised by the current owners. One of the barns provides ample storage space and retains the original threshing floor and the other has the potential to be converted into an annex (planning permission was previously granted although it has now lapsed).
