Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Burrell House is a deceptively spacious three storey individual detached five bedroom house which lies in a rural location between the market towns of Halesworth and Bungay. The property overlooks open farmland and is set in an agricultural working village. The property, which was built to the present owners' own design and specification, takes its name from the famous Burrell steam engines which were used on the farm where the house now sits. The neighbouring cottage attests to this history with a small private collection of vintage tractors and farm machinery. The accommodation benefits from oil-fired central heating and double glazing. The down stairs rooms benefit from under floor heating, the upper floors being served by traditional radiators. The ground floor comprises a large reception hall, a sitting room with a wood burner, a large separate dining room and a fabulous open plan kitchen/dining/ living room which opens to the private rear garden via French windows. The kitchen units have been handcrafted in oak to the owners' own specification. There is a large utility room with good built in storage. The first floor boasts an impressive galleried landing and an oak staircase. The master bedroom has its own en-suite dressing room and shower room. Bedrooms two and three are served by an enormous family bathroom. The top floor bedrooms share a shower room. All five bedrooms are well proportioned and will accommodate double beds. The garden is laid to lawn and flanked by a native species hedge along the boundary with the adjacent building plot. There is a good sized garage and plenty of off street parking.

Ilketshall St Margaret is a small rural hamlet set deep in the rural Suffolk countryside, about four and a half miles from Halesworth and within easy reach by car of the Suffolk Heritage Coast and the gateway to the Broads at Beccles. There is a local bus route for the High School. The village offers wonderful country walks along public footpaths through open, unspoilt farmland. Both Bungay and Halesworth offer excellent local amenities. Bungay is an historic town with the remains of the former castle which dates back to Norman times. The town has a selection of independent shops, restaurants and public houses. The Fisher theatre hosts a number of events throughout the year and Halesworth, which also offers good local shops and restaurants, benefits from the Cut which hosts many live music events. The town of Diss has a railway station with services to Norwich, Ipswich and London. Norwich is about 25 minutes away by car.
