Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The Property

Yvans Hall is a substantial old farmhouse dating back to the 16th century with a later Victorian extension, affording the character and charm of the earlier era. Fabulous exposed wide floorboards, some exposed wall and ceiling timbers
and a superb fireplace with exposed brick chimney breast, pamment tiled hearth and bressumer beam with inset log burning stove. The rooms to the ground floor are well proportioned with high timber beamed and plastered ceilings, and large windows principally to the front elevation. The current owners have, over the 24 years that they've owned the house, maintained the property and made general improvements such as rewiring, and plumbing and a modern oil fired central heating system. There is good scope and versatility for improvement, subject to the relevant
consents, with a now lapsed permission having been granted to extend the house over two storeys to the rear. There may also be options to increase the bedroom accommodation by
converting some of the loft space.

The Location

Polstead is a popular and picturesque village centred around a green and duck pond. Village amenities include The Cock pub, an active village hall, community shop and post office as well as the beautifully positioned St Mary's Church. In addition, there is an excellent network of footpaths across the surrounding rolling countryside. Further amenities and popular restaurants can be found
in neighbouring Stoke-by-Nayland, Nayland and Hadleigh. Extensive amenities are provided in Colchester including a mainline station with fastest trains to the City taking 48 minutes. There is an excellent choice of schools in both Colchester and Ipswich and nearby prep schools include Littlegarth (about 3 miles) and Holmwood House in Colchester.


The property is set to the rear of its 7.1 acre grounds at the end of a long private drive, giving it outstanding privacy whilst also benefitting from the ease of access to the local amenities.
The majority of the land is dedicated to the two pasture meadows to the front and either side of the long drive that leads up to the front of the house. There is a garden area to the rear of the house which has recently been cleared and is in essence a blank canvas upon which to create whatever is preferred. There is a spacious gravelled parking area to the front of the house and a 5-bar gate gives access to the various outbuildings to the side. The Old Bull pens are now
utilised as double garaging with workshop to the side. An open portal framed agricultural barn is partially enclosed by 2 good stables, a further single garage/studio building and a recently collapsed timber framed outbuilding with
clay pantiled roof. This could be reinstated and offers good further versatile scope. To the rear of this there is a further part collapsed clay pantiled roofed outbuilding, again offering further scope, and due to its vicinity to the main house, the potential as an annexe.
