Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The House
This detached, listed Suffolk Longhouse provides well-proportioned accommodation over two levels which totals 2116 square feet. The property has been almost entirely renovated over recent years by our clients who have been sympathetic to the house’s period. Features include numerous ceiling beams (none restrictive), a large brick chimney, studwork and oak doors.

The dining room is at the far end of the property and could be used as a fourth bedroom or a study if needed whilst the principal reception room is at the centre of the house and focuses on a log burner set within the aforementioned red brick chimney.

The kitchen has space for a eight-person dining table and includes black granite surfaces, hand-built units, hidden downlighters, space for a large fridge freezer and a door to the front garden. Other ground floor accommodation includes a pleasant entrance hall, a utility room and a WC.

Upstairs there are three double bedrooms with the largest being in the middle of the property and having an outlook across the grounds to the front boundary. The family bathroom is large and includes a bespoke double walk-in shower and a separate bath.

The Grounds
Importantly the house sits towards the rear of its plot meaning it enjoys an impressive approach via a gated driveway and it is set well back from the lane on which it is located. The garden totals 0.8 acres which includes a large pond to the front and several areas of lawn which are an ideal canvas for gardeners.

Subject to planning we expect it may be possible to re-route the drive around the pond and/or to build a cart lodge within the grounds.

Extension Potential
Although planning permission would be required, we believe this property is ideal for a two-story rear extension to create fourth first floor bedroom and en-suite, plus a second/third reception room beneath.

The farmhouse is found in a rural location with just one neighbour and Valley Road is a quiet lane with little in the way of passing traffic. Needham Market is found just four miles to the east where all day-to-day services can be found plus the A14 provides good road links to Ipswich, Bury-St-Edmunds and Cambridge.

Points to Note
We understand the property has an oil-fired central heating system, private sewerage and mains water. No energy performance certificate has been produced since the property is Grade Two Listed. Council tax band F. We have described the property as four bedrooms considering that the ground floor dining room could be used as such.
