Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Horseyards is an exceptional barn conversion in a discreet edge-of-village setting, forming part of a small and attractive farmyard development. The property offers good privacy, added to which the space and striking features of the interior are a wonderful surprise. In particular, the open plan kitchen/dining room/drawing room is truly stunning with a bespoke spiral wooden staircase leading up to a mezzanine gallery which is currently used as a study. The reception space is free flowing and glazed double doors open into the garden room; this has a lovely outlook over the walled garden, plus a cleverly designed glass roof light which opens via a remote control. Adjoining is a vaulted double bedroom suite. There are 2 further double bedroom suites, one with an ensuite shower and the other with a Jack & Jill bath/shower room which can also serve bedroom 4 which is currently used as a snug. As virtually all the accommodation is on the ground floor, the property has a flexible layout; there is also plenty of storage throughout.

We understand Horseyards is not listed although it falls within the curtilage of a Grade II listed farmhouse. The original construction is both brick and timber framed, with red brick elevations under pan tiled, peg tiled and slate tiled roofs. The current owners bought the newly developed barn in 2012 and have since improved and extended the accommodation as well as landscaping the grounds. They have converted a cartlodge into a double garage with 2 sets of doors and built an additional double garage.

The grounds form a further delightful feature. The principal garden to the rear is fully enclosed by a red brick wall and enjoys a south westerly aspect. Automated double gates open onto the gravelled parking area giving access to the 2 double garages, one of which is currently used as a workshop. The garden is laid to lawn with well stocked and colourful flower beds incorporating roses, foxgloves, irises and other typical English country garden plants. A flagstoned sun terrace adjoins the rear of the house. There is also a pretty front garden enclosed by a brick and flint wall with a lawn that is bordered by similarly planted flower borders. There is also a further gated parking area to the front.

Lavenham is famed as the best preserved medieval village in England with about 340 listed buildings, all of which are centred around a delightful village square which features The Guildhall. The village offers an excellent selection of amenities including a post office, butchers, bakery, grocery stores, pharmacy and more. In addition there are many popular restaurants, pubs, galleries and The Swan Hotel
