THE PROPERTY **Guide price: £ 650,000.00 to £ 700,000.00**

Preston Barn is the larger part of a magnificent seven -aisled timber barn. The rooms are large and bright with the majority looking forward facing south west over the pond.

On the ground floor there is a bright sitting room with high ceilings, double French doors and a woodburner, a light and airy dining room and a spacious kitchen/breakfast room which is where the current owners tend to spend most of their time and where the newly installed combination boiler can be found as well as the water softener. There is one double bedroom downstairs (currently used as an office) with an en-suite shower room, providing the perfect solution for when guests stay over or alternatively it could be used as a self-contained space for a relative choosing to stay longer. There is also an abundance of storage and a cloakroom as well as an ever-useful utility room.

Upstairs is a very large galleried landing looking up at the wonderful timbers, with three double bedrooms all offering pleasant views onto the pretty landscaped gardens and two further bathrooms, one with a roll top bath and walk in shower cubicle.

There is a detached double garage with car port alongside, ample parking and plenty of space to create more. The approach is via an impressive drive passing in from the road between brick walls with an electric gate, which also serves the other half of the barn.

A particular feature of the mature grounds is the very large south and west facing sun terrace with a summerhouse, looking out across the large pond which is owned by Hall Barn but jointly upkept. The grounds contain some fine trees and adjoin the historic parish churchyard.


 

LOCATION Preston St Mary is a small and exceptionally pretty village around 2 miles from Lavenham. It is surrounded by the delightful countryside of the Brett valley and at its centre is Preston Hall and an historic parish church - the property is set in between the two. There is The Six Bells the busy village pub within easy walking distance and medieval Lavenham provides a wonderful range of interesting shops, a doctor's surgery, primary school and a number of good restaurants and public houses. There are two co-operative stores, a traditional grocers, butchers and bakery. From Preston St Mary there is easy access up to the cathedral town of Bury St Edmunds with links by the A14 to Ipswich and Cambridge, and to the south is the market town of Sudbury with good facilities. Both towns have rail links through to London's Liverpool Street (Colchester mainline station 35 minutes by car with Intercity Express connections to London 47 minutes on the ½ hour). The setting of Preston Barn is truly delightful, overlooking its large pond and beyond the grounds is the historic parish church.
