This unique Property shows a date stamp 1637 and is believed to be The Manor House , magnificent timbers throughout the home certainly substantiate this. Circa 1980 a complete restoration programme was carried out by master Craftsmen, no expense was spared in maintaining all original features whilst installing all new utilities along with cavity walls suitably insulated.

THE PROPERTY
The interior features solid hard wood flooring in the hall and drawing room together with a most attractive reconstruction of a solid Oak staircase , most of the windows feature double glazing and views from all the window are a delight, in fact most of the rooms enjoy a double aspect. Whilst it will be realised that the present occupiers have carried out a regular routine maintenance schedule the new owners have scope to now modernise, if required, in line with current trends.

An impressive entrance hall, with carved staircase leading to the first floor, gives access to the principle reception rooms. The drawing room as with the dining room displays impressive wall and ceiling timbers and a jet master open fireplace set into the brick chimney with bressumer beam.
From the drawing room a door leads through to the garden room, with patio sliding doors to the terrace and a superb outlook across the private grounds to the rear.
The formal dining room boasts more outstanding character with oak panelled walls, and a magnificent inglenook open fire with bressumer beam. There is also a china cupboard and another door to the kitchen.
The spacious Aga kitchen breakfast room benefits from the same secondary glazed leaded light windows that the property predominantly benefits from throughout, to both front and rear elevations. There is access to a very convenient snug room, with a pantry store adjacent. A boot room to the rear also gives access to the terrace.
Brick steps lead down from the hall to the superbly versatile Family/Play room. This has a window to the rear, storage cupboards and a further store room and boiler room, which houses the oil fired central heating boiler.
To the first floor there are 3 comfortable double bedrooms with fitted wardrobes and cupboards served by 3 bath/shower rooms, off the central landing with a charming and useful Study/Reading room to the front.
A further 3 bedrooms occupy the top floor served by a cloakroom that could easily be improved to accommodate a shower if desired.

LOCATION
This unique property is well set in the outskirts of this conveniently located Suffolk village, with superb access to the A11 and A14 trunk roads. This affords good links with Newmarket, Bury St Edmunds and Cambridge. Newmarket 9 miles away is well known as the headquarters of the British Horse racing industry and offers a comprehensive range of services and amenities. Whilst Bury St Edmunds 11 miles away is greatly appreciated by many as being the Jewel in the East Anglian Crown and is a very well regarded market town.
Tuddenham itself is a small village that benefits from the acclaimed Tuddenham Mill, a chic and stylish restaurant with bedrooms, the White Heart village pub and the nearby organic farm shop. There is a rail link at Kennett that gives
access to the mainlines at Cambridge (London Liverpool Street or Kings Cross connections) and Ipswich. Cambridge is around 22 miles distant by road.

THE GROUNDS
Immediately on entering through the wrought iron gates one realises that a lot of thought has gone into the planning of the 3.5 acres indeed they were landscaped some 30 years ago with great care and imagination to create easily managed grounds to include a formal front pond which overflows, together with storm water, down to the rear lake in the paddock. Specimen trees create a certain parkland feel together with various areas bounded with hedges give the feeling of interest with numerous bulbs and rare species of
plants. In addition there is a Paddock, organic garden, greenhouse and productive orchard; The paddock in particular is a haven for wild life, kingfishers being a regular sight bounding as it does this tributary of he River Lark.

OUTBUILDINGS
The swimming pool and pavilion are enclosed within a sheltered area which enjoy complete seclusion, the pavilion features two changing rooms, kitchenette, seating area
and plant room with associated heat exchange unit and pool equipment as required.
The workshop and two modern barns are accessed from the main drive and are enclosed around a square courtyard bordered by flowering and climbing plants together with an attractive arch. The buildings have been carefully pargetted to
soften the appearance of these low roofline buildings.
The traditional Barn is of great character and if so required could be converted to ancillary accommodation (subject to the usual consents)
