The House
The Farmhouse is timber framed with a tiled slate roof, with the original building thought to date back to the 15th Century with later additions. The main house offers a generous 3815 square feet of versatile living accommodation which has served our client’s family very well over the past 30 years.

The large front porch area leads to the sitting room featuring a beautiful open fireplace with wood-burning stove and brick surround. To the left of the living room is a small library area which leads into another reception room, currently used as a dining room with office. The right of the living room leads to a useful boot-room with WC and separate laundry/airing room, which then leads through to the kitchen.

The kitchen is a good size and is fitted around a central island and family table and chairs. There is a range of wooden wall and base units, an electric oven and hob, and space for a fridge freezer. Off the kitchen is a large rear porch leading out to the garden, a useful space for coats and shoes. Finally, through the left of the kitchen is a third reception room, currently used as a second reception room/drawing room.

There are two staircases on the ground floor, the stairs to the left-hand side of the house lead to the master suite which has immediate access to a bath and shower room. The other staircase leads up to three further bedrooms which all share the use of a shower room. The second floor has two further rooms (currently set up as a living room and bedroom) with access to a bathroom.

The History
The Farmhouse is thought to have been home to Thomas Mills, an historic businessman known locally for his help to the poor and huge contributions towards the education of the town and surrounding area. Schools were opened in his name from 1751 through to the Thomas Mills High School of today.

The Grounds
The house lies within 4.8 acres, which include a large area of lawn to the front of the house, a shingle in-and-out drive, woodland, two ponds, a three-bay cart-lodge, former pigsties (used for storage) and a number of paddocks which provide equestrian potential or income from letting.

The Clinic
The clinic is a converted barn to the rear of the house which is currently set up as a physiotherapy and hydrotherapy rehabilitation centre, complete with a heated indoor pool, shower facilities, changing rooms, waiting area / reception and treatment room. Another part of the barn is used for storage and the first floor has been converted. This extremely versatile building is currently let at £6,000 per annum but has the potential for several other uses if required.

The Cottage
This charming renovated cottage is self-contained and whilst currently empty, it could be let out to provide an annual income of around £6,000 per annum, alternatively it would make an ideal annexe. The accommodation includes a living room, kitchen/dining room, bathroom and double bedroom, as-well-as a small conservatory. The cottage also has its own garden area which could be fenced off from the rest of the land, adding to its rental appeal.

The property sits in a screened location in the heart of the peaceful village of Pettistree in Suffolk. The village has a thriving public house ( and is only a short drive from Wickham Market which includes most necessary day-to-day amenities. The thriving and extremely popular market town of Woodbridge is just a few miles away.

For commuters, Suffolk’s County town of Ipswich is accessible via the A12 and provides direct trains to London Liverpool Street with a journey time of just over an hour.

Points to note
The property is on mains drainage and electricity; the house has night storage heaters with an economy7 supply.
The property may fall under ‘mixed use’ estate and thus the stamp duty is lower. The house is Grade two listed.
