PROPERTY DESCRIPTION Wood Farm is located in a semi rural location on the edge of the village of Hintlesham, between the south Suffolk market town of Hadleigh and the county town of Ipswich. The property includes a main family residence, annexed single storey cottage, outbuildings and about three acres of land.
Originating from circa 1460, there is a great deal of character and period charm to this family residence. With accommodation over three storey's plus a cellar, there are some interesting features and scope for people to put their own mark on the place.
The front door takes you into the hall way with doors into the study, drawing room, living room and the main stairs to the first floor. The drawing room has a bay window to the front and an ornate wood surround to the open fire. The generous study could easily act as an additional reception room, with double aspect windows onto the pond and front garden area. The living room has plenty of space for family relaxing and dining, it has a brick open fire, french doors into the Oak framed garden room and walk through to the kitchen. The large kitchen has an Aga, room for a breakfast table and a pantry. From the living room, there is a door leading to a utility room and ground floor bathroom, a door leading onto the 'servants' stair case and further stair case down to the cellar, which has an external door with steps leading up to the front of the house.
On the first floor, there is a grand landing area, which would lend its self to a family room, with views over the garden and beyond, or perhaps the creation of a further room leaving a smaller landing. There are three bedrooms on this floor, a bathroom and a smart en suite shower room to one of the rooms. The 'servants' staircase takes you up to the second floor, where there is a further bedroom and access into the useful loft space.
Converted from an agricultural building about 5 years ago, the single storey dwelling, with its own services, can provide independent living for extended families, or an income from letting to third parties. The cottage has a high standard of fixture and fitting and is charmingly presented with half vaulted ceilings, Oak floors and doors and a brick fire place with a multi fuel stove. The accommodation consists of a open plan kitchen and reception area, utility room, study, two double bedrooms, the larger one having an en suite shower room, and a bathroom. Outside, a private enclosed courtyard garden, with french doors into the reception room and one of the bedrooms.
There is a detached stable block with three horse bays and a hay bay. There is a detached cart lodge with three car bays, a work shop and plenty of storage above.
There is a total of just over three acres of land with the property. The gardens surround the house with a formal area, wild meadow and chase, pond, vegetable patch and lawn tennis court. The fenced paddock is to the rear of the plot and measures about one and a quarter acres.
