THE PROPERTY

Commanding an elevated setting amidst 11 acres and with far reaching rural views, an historic Listed hall with impressive accommodation and outbuildings. Set well within its gardens and grounds at the end of a long tree lined driveway, The Hall is an imposing country house enjoying a commanding position on the edge of the village, with far reaching views across the picturesque countryside of the Deben Valley. The house, with its impressive chimneys, dates from the 16th Century and is Grade II* Listed. Within, the well laid out accommodation features two stunning principal reception rooms each with 9ft 6in high ceilings, impressive brick fireplaces and deep sash windows. There is a further sitting room and study, together with an inner hall, beyond which is the fabulous kitchen/breakfast room by Plain English with a spacious boot room/utility room and separate pantry beyond. On the first floor the stunning twin aspect principal bedroom, enjoys wonderful views and includes a modern open plan en suite shower room and bathroom. There are four further bedrooms, family bathroom and separate shower room. The second floor provides two further bedrooms, a living room, kitchenette and bathroom, providing the potential for use as a self-contained flat. The accommodation which extends some 4880 sq ft benefits from a modern oil-fired central heating system. OUTSIDE The tree lined driveway sweeps between paddock and meadows, and beyond the house and gardens to an extensive courtyard, fronting onto which is a multipurpose range of flexible use barns including a traditional timber framed former granary (40 x 20) providing three parking bays and a lean-to store with a multipurpose store room/office above. Adjacent is the cart lodge barn (34 x 17) providing three further parking bays and utility stores either end and above, which has previously had planning consent for an annex conversion. There is a secure garaging/workshop range (50 x 20) with a large concrete frame portal building (65 X 45) beyond which links into the multipurpose barn (65 X 54), which would be ideal for the inclusion of stalls to create an American style stable range. To the rear of the house beyond is an enclosed courtyard garden with a further timber framed range of domestic stores. GARDENS & GROUNDS The part walled gardens lie mainly to the west of the house and are sheltered by mature hedging. There is a wide terrace to the side of the barns which opens onto areas of lawn, interspersed with well stocked colourful herbaceous beds and borders and a variety of mature trees, including copper beech, horse chestnut and ash together with numerous productive fruit trees. Beyond the gardens are grassland meadows and a post and rail paddock. There is also an attractive natural pond overhung with willow trees beyond which is a further grassland meadow enclosed by mature hedgerow. In all the property extends to about 11 acres.
