Understood to date from the early 20th century, Harram Hill House is a substantial detached family home in a delightful country setting just outside the village of Horringer. As the name suggests, the property occupies an elevated setting and enjoys some exceptional views over gently rolling Suffolk countryside whilst being only a few miles from Bury St Edmunds.

The house has been the subject of a comprehensive program of renovation and remodelling which has included re-roofing, re-plumbing, re-wiring, re-fitting of bathroom, shower rooms and an impressive kitchen/breakfast room. The grounds have also been re-landscaped and a new heritage style cart lodge constructed.

Extending to 3300sqft and possessing a light and airy atmosphere enjoying magnificent countryside views from most windows, the beautifully arranged accommodation currently in brief comprises: traditional entrance door opening to the entrance porch and entrance hall with an elegant tiled floor and new staircase off to first floor. The largest reception is the splendid drawing/sitting room with a fine stone fireplace and dual aspect windows affording open views. A family room has a fireplace and window to front overlooking undulating countryside and a formal dining room is an elegant room for entertaining with double doors opening fully to a delightful snug/breakfast room with fireplace with wood burning stove. The luxurious kitchen is fitted with an excellent range of quality units complemented by stunning Granite preparation surfaces including a large central island and integrated appliances. Door to utility and cloakroom. At the southern end of the house is a gym with en-suite and a study. The gym area could easily provide potential to be altered to form a granny annexe or home office with its own entrance if desired.

First Floor
Stairs rise from the entrance hall to a first floor landing with airing cupboard and doors to all five bedrooms all affording spectacular views (master and guest bedroom both with en-suite shower rooms) and a family bath/shower room completes the first floor accommodation.

A gravel driveway provides ample parking for several cars and leads to a recently constructed detached two bay cart lodge with oak front posts, weather boarded elevations under a pantile roof. The front gardens feature two lawns which are enclosed by a recently planted evergreen hedge. The gardens sweep round to the back of the house where there is a newly laid sandstone terrace and a large central lawn adjoining farm and woodland. Adjoining the rear of the property is a substantial workshop (20' x 15'3) offering potential for conversion into further accommodation subject to the necessary consents, it currently houses a 'Grant' oil fired central heating boiler. On the southern side of the house there is a small timber built shed providing further storage and on the northern side an oil storage tank. The exceptional views need to be seen to be appreciated, therefore inspection is highly recommended. The superb grounds extend in all to about half an acre.

Harram Hill House is located on the southern edge of Horringer, close to the village of Whepstead. This delightful rural setting is convenient for Bury St. Edmunds which offers an excellent range of schooling, recreational and shopping facilities, including the newly opened Arc shopping centre. The property is well located for road communications with the A14 being some 3 miles to the north and for the rail commuter there is a fast and regular service to London King's Cross from Cambridge taking approximately 60 minutes and from Stowmarket to London's Liverpool Street taking approximately 85 minutes.

From Bury St. Edmunds head South West along Horringer Road taking the first turning left onto the B1066. Proceed towards Whepstead for approximately 2 miles where Harram Hill House can be seen on the your left hand side indicated by a for sale board.
