Guide Price £645,000

Property Details

Location This period house is at the end of a bumpy farm track but don't let that put you off as it leads to a delightful position with the gardens running onto farmland and woods. There are neighbours nearby including a working farm but they are pretty much hidden by trees and hedges giving this house the best of being rural but not isolated. Within 3 miles is the small town of Eye which has an active community supporting various shops and social activities. Hoxne with its renowned Swan public house is 2 miles in the other direction and for those looking to commute there is a mainline rail station at Diss just 6 miles away with a regular service to London Liverpool Street. There are plenty of country walks around this area and for those who enjoy the sea, the Heritage Coast around Southwold and Aldeburgh is within 40 minutes by car.

The Property This wonderful family home is Listed as Grade II indicating a property of architectural or historical importance. This is apparent internally where much of the timber frame is revealed and various mullion windows are clearly seen. There is a wonderful arched redbrick open fireplace in the living room and the remains of the timber panelling (probably from the original cross passage) is visible in the kitchen. The kitchen has a range of fitted units and a cooking range within the fireplace. One of the loveliest rooms is the garden room with its vaulted ceiling and glazed windows looking out across the garden. Upstairs are three bedrooms each with exposed timbering and the modern bathroom which has a white suite. The house has been loved and maintained over the years with care to preserve the character but it is fair to say that it is far from being a 'show home'.

The Barn This has been converted to provide additional living accommodation in connection with the main house and has been a great space for entertaining, used for many teenage parties. It has been quite simply converted and more could be made of this space if desired. Alternatively it would make a great home office area or perhaps provide an income through letting.

Agent's Note Online aerial views show the proximity of the farm and make the property appear overlooked and cramped. This is not the case and a viewing at the property will demonstrate its setting properly.

Outside The setting and extent of space this property provides is one of the main reasons the current owners purchased a number of years ago. The grounds extend to 1.424ha (3.52ac) divided between the garden and paddock (ideal for a pony or two!). The garden is laid mainly to grass with mature hedge boundaries, various trees and well stocked flowerbeds close to the house. To one side is a very good timber log store and workshop and there is plenty of space for further outbuildings if needed. This is a wildlife haven and also has a pond in the corner.

Services Mains water and electricity are connected to the property. Private drainage. LPG boiler providing heating to radiators and domestic hot water.

Directions From Eye head out on Hoxne Road (B1117) and continue for just over a mile. Turn left signed to Hoxne. Continue for 0.7 mile and turn right to South Green. Pass the post box on your left. When the lane forks take the left fork. Follow the lane to the end where Home Farm is ahead.
