The town of Framlingham is located approximately 6 miles to the south-east where there are excellent schools in both the state and private sector - Sir Robert Hitchams Primary School and Thomas Mills High School - and in the private sector, Framlingham College. There are a number of highly respected pubs and restaurants in the town including The Station public house and The Crown Hotel.

Description Oakwood Farm is a relatively modern country house of brick and block construction with rendered and weather boarded elevations under a pantile roof. The property provides extensive and flexible family accommodation over two floors, which take full advantage of the rural views. The house can quite easily be used as one substantial dwelling or, if desired, as a house with adjoining annexe. The annexe is ideal for additional family occupation or, potentially, as a first rate holiday let, having just been converted/renovated to a very high standard.

Throughout the property are UPVC double-glazed windows and oil fired central heating served by an external boiler fitted in recent years. In the annexe, the ground floor has an underfloor central heating system with first floor radiators. The main house offers particularly large rooms with a spacious kitchen/breakfast room, 25'6 x 14'11 sitting room, dining room, study and snug. The master bedroom has an impressive vaulted ceiling with windows taking full advantage of the views. In total, including the annexe, there are six bedrooms, two bathrooms and an en-suite shower room. Externally, the property sits in over 1¼ acres of lawn and meadow. This includes outbuildings with two stables, which have electricity and water.
