Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This spacious and versatile detached barn conversion, which offers five to six bedrooms, two self-contained one-bedroom apartments and a workshop or studio, is set in nearly one and a half acres of gardens on the outskirts of the village of Hundon. The property also includes a stable block with three stables and a tack room.

The current owners were attracted to the property 12 years ago by the flexibility of its accommodation and by its workshop, which provided an ideal artist's studio for their interior design and mural painting business. They also loved the quiet countryside setting of the house in rural Suffolk, which was nevertheless within easy reach of the A14, the A11 and M11. Hundon's amenities include a shop with a Post Office, a primary school and a village hall, while other local shops and services are to hand in Clare, Haverhill and Sudbury. In addition, Cambridge, Bury St Edmunds and Newmarket are all within easy reach, and convenient railway stations can be found at Audley End and Sudbury.

The main part of the house has a large reception hall, which gives access to a kitchen and breakfast room, a triple aspect dining room and a large L-shaped sitting room. A passage and an inner hallway lead to a flexible suite of rooms, which include two shower rooms, a study, a bedroom and a further bedroom or sitting room with a kitchen area; this part of the house could provide annexe accommodation. On the first floor, a landing with a mezzanine sitting area gives access to four bedrooms, a bathroom and a shower room. A completely separate ground floor wing provides two mirror-image one-bedroom apartments, while a further ground floor wing offers a utility room and a large workshop or studio.

Outside, gravelled areas around the north side of the house provide plenty of space for parking. Adjoining the south side of the house is a gravelled terrace; wide steps cut into a low retaining wall lead up from the terrace to the remainder of the garden, which includes extensive areas of lawn, two herbaceous beds with roses, and a pond fringed by three large weeping willows.

Owls Hall's flexible accommodation offers not only a lovely family home but also the possibility of space for an extended family, a home business or holiday lets.
