THE PROPERTY

Enjoying a tucked away setting on the edge of the sought after village of Lower Ufford, a well-presented five bedroom family house with an annexe, traditional barn, sheltered gardens and meadow. Malt House Farm is a complete property, enjoying a nicely tucked away position on the edge of one of East Suffolk's most popular villages, and with delightful views over the picturesque countryside of the Deben Valley. The house itself is understood to date from the 17th Century and has been carefully extended in recent times. Within, the well laid out accommodation, which benefits from a mains gas fired central heating system, includes a central entrance/reception hall, a well-proportioned drawing room, a snug sitting room, breakfast room and kitchen, complete with Aga, beyond which is the utility room. On the first floor there are five bedrooms, the majority of which enjoy views over the gardens and surrounding countryside plus an en-suite bathroom and family shower room. Beyond the house, the self-contained granary barn annexe offers flexibility for a variety of uses with a large ground floor room, a kitchenette and shower room off, together with two first floor bedrooms above. OUTSIDE Five bar gates access a shingle drive, which sweeps up to a parking area beyond the house and provides access into the former farmyard, which is enclosed by a fine traditional barn, ideal for utility storage/stabling. Adjacent is a workshop/playroom barn and a range of stores. Sheltered by mature hedges, the house sits amidst picturesque gardens, which are mainly laid to lawn with colourful shrub and herbaceous borders. To the south is a suntrap terrace, whilst beyond the granary is a large greenhouse. A track runs beyond the traditional barn to the top meadow, which is laid to grass and would be ideal for paddocks or as play space, from where there are fabulous views across the countryside of the Deben Valley.
