Location Location is always one of the most important factors in buying a house and this property will not disappoint. It is set back and hidden from the road with just the former barns as nearby neighbours. There are lovely views to the rear across this property's garden, pond and onto a gently rolling landscape of fields and trees. The house is set between the villages of Stradbroke and Laxfield which provide good day-to-day facilities, and is only 8 miles north of Framlingham and 11 miles from Diss where there is a mainline rail station on the Norwich to London Liverpool Street line with a journey to London of around 90 minutes. For those enjoying the coast, Southwold and Aldeburgh are just 22 miles away. This is a house which combines a rural splendour with access to wider facilities.
The Property Low Farm is a truly delightful house believed to date back to the 16th century and listed as Grade II. It is clear to see why with so much of the original character retained and enhanced by the current owner who has had a gentle hand at the tiller of restoration during the last 16 years or so. This is not to say the house isn't in good order but rather that it hasn't been spoilt. It is clearly a house of quality with fine timbers on display, large open fireplaces, and rooms which are very wide for a timbered house. One of the favourite features is the stairs to the attic which are so simple in design and have rarely survived.
This is a great family house with accommodation spread over three floors.
Outside The house is approached over an unmade lane owned by the neighbouring farmer and through a five bar gate onto the shingled parking and turning in front of the triple garage (33' x 20') and mower store (12'6 x 8'9). Further space is provided in the brick and pantiled store (22'7 x 7'8). The grounds are principally laid to grass with various trees and a large pond stretching away to the west. Against the rear of the house is a large terrace which catches the sun from mid morning onwards and is an ideal spot to watch the wildlife in the garden and on the pond. Overall the house is set within 1.448ha (3.58ac).
