From top to bottom the exceptional presentation of this striking property becomes immediately apparent. Character and charm flows throughout the original part of the farmhouse, dating back to pre-18th century, from inglenook fireplaces to stunning beams and timbers. The more modern additions to the property in recent times have been partnered well with the traditional nature of the house, flowing seamlessly between the two. A vast reception area and spacious kitchen/breakfast room provide the ideal family hub and social space, opening out on to the impressive south-facing terrace via bi-folding doors. The more intimate rooms of the original part of the house provide a sitting room with inglenook fireplace, study, games room and other useful spaces. The ground-floor also provides a double bedroom with ensuite plus ground-floor shower room. One landing gives access to three double bedrooms, each with ensuite, and a second landing provides another two double bedrooms and main bathroom suite. A sixth double bedroom can be found by climbing the spiral staircase from the lobby.
An unassuming five-bar gate gives way to 2.3 glorious acres of grounds (STS) where a long gravelled drive leads up to the house, detached indoor swimming pool and double cart lodge. The house is surrounded by many impressive terrace areas that catch the sun, including the incredible South-facing main terrace, ideal for entertaining and alfresco dining. The main garden is laid to a large lawn area and bordered by mature trees and shrubs. As you move down the garden it evolves into a sizeable orchard area and open space, ideal for a playing field. The recently constructed indoor swimming pool with shower room and boiler room is thoroughly insulated and heated for use all year round. Beside the pool, a double cart lodge offers sheltered parking. To one corner of the plot is a beautiful unconverted brick and timber barn providing plenty of scope for conversion subject to planning.
The property is situated at the end of a quiet track within the popular village of Market Weston. Market Weston is a mostly un-spoilt village and offers local amenities including a village hall, public house and church. The two neighbouring villages of Hopton and Barningham provide further day-to-day facilities including shops, a post office, take away, public house, coffee shop and schooling. The village provides excellent access to the main road networks including the market town of Diss with its main line rail link to London. In addition, Bury St Edmunds is approximately 12 miles away. Both of these towns have a wider range of facilities including high street supermarkets, a shopping centre and schooling up to sixth form level.
