No.5 Old Hall, as the name suggests, forms part of the renovation of the Old Hall and is a four bedroom dwelling that has been created and enhanced by the current vendors to provide a fusion of elegance, style and country living. This delightful home is one of only 11 exclusive and highly individual properties standing in approximately 19 acres of scheduled parkland (now largely privately owned) which together form Carlton Park, the former home of the renowned Victorian engineer Richard Garrett. This charming house offers very modern convenience, whilst retaining a distinctly period feel with its high ceilings and internal features including craftsman moulded cornicing to all rooms.

The accommodation comprises entrance hall with its high ceilings and returning staircase with large sash window overlooking the parkland, accentuating the sophistication of this property. The farmhouse style kitchen/dining room highlights the practicality of country living with a gas fired Aga being at its heart. A mullion style opening has been cleverly created by the vendors from the kitchen providing a stunning vista through the living/dining room into the orangery, which was built to provide a link to the sitting room and gives a wonderful outside/inside feel which adds to the already light and spacious accommodation. The living/dining room has a range of floor to ceiling hand built bookcases with cupboards under, adding a contemporary feel to the property, with a glass sitting area giving additional light and a great space from which to enjoy the gardens to the rear. The sitting room has a wood burning stove which is flanked by shelves and has a wide bay window overlooking extensive views over the landscaped gardens to the front of the property and meadows beyond directly towards Carlton Church. A utility room and cloakroom complete the ground floor accommodation.

On the first floor the master bedroom is a dual aspect room enjoying stunning views to the front and rear, a range of fitted wardrobes and recently refitted en-suite shower room with twin basins and large double tray shower with W.C. The remaining three bedrooms, each with their own views, share the family bathroom and a separate shower room. Throughout the property the current vendors have taken great care in creating additional storage areas and finishing touches which really do complete the property to a very high standard, and as selling agents we highly recommend internal viewing to fully appreciate what's on offer.

Outside the gardens have been inspired by the desire of the vendors to create gardens that look good throughout the year and need little maintenance, benefiting from an integrated watering system. Much of the front and rear gardens are surrounded by a living fence composed of pleached hornbeam. The front garden is landscaped in keeping with the surroundings and has an eclectic mix of well trained conference pear, quince and cox apple, plus magnolia and various clipped evergreen shrubs. There is a side access to the rear which has been covered to create an outside work space with a timber shed and log store. The rear garden has been designed to merge into the woodland behind, giving a spacious feel. The main features are a miniature Malus (crab apple), holding its red fruit well into the winter and an Amelanchier, a Canadian woodland tree which flowers and bears fruit as well.

Carlton Park, which comprises approximately 19 acres of parkland, some of which is available for private enjoyment of the individual owners, lies just to the north of the market town of Saxmundham which offers a good range of shops in a traditional High Street setting, together with both Waitrose and Tesco supermarkets. The town also benefits from having a railway station which gives connecting services via Ipswich to London Liverpool Street. The delightful Suffolk Heritage Coastline is easily accessible to the east with the genteel and unspoilt coastal towns of Southwold and Aldeburgh both lying within easy driving distance. For music lovers Snape Maltings Concert Hall is the venue for many of the concerts that make up the Annual Aldeburgh Music Festival, whilst those with sporting interests are well catered for in the area with first class golf courses at both Aldeburgh and Thorpeness, a modern sports centre and swimming pool complex at nearby Leiston and for sailors the Rivers Alde and Ore provide some of the prettiest sailing waters on the East Coast.
