Understood to have origins dating back to the early 20th Century when part of the current property formed the stables to what is now the fabulous Grange Hotel, this unique family home provides a surprising level of particularly spacious and versatile accommodation extending in all to approximately 2200 sq ft and retains a wealth of unique and quality features throughout.

This fine property, which is full of personality and charm, has more recently been lovingly restored with extensive works carried out including a smart new roof and now results in an exceptional home occupying a wonderful setting at the end of a long driveway and extending in all to about one and a half acres (s.t.s).

The beautifully presented accommodation currently in brief comprises: a pair of impressive entrance doors opening to a reception hall with stone flooring and staircase off to first floor. The 16' x15' sitting room is a comfortable reception with fireplace and stove and French doors to gardens. The family room retains a fireplace and French doors to the rear gardens and terracing with door to a study. Of particular note is the splendid 36' x 10' kitchen breakfast room with its excellent vaulted ceiling displaying exposed timbers and a polished herringbone polished brick floor. The kitchen, made by Neptune, is fitted with an extensive range of quality storage units with granite and wooden preparation surfaces further enhanced by built-in appliances including dishwasher, space for fridge/freezer and a range oven with extractor beneath a traditional pelmet.

From the kitchen breakfast room a door leads to versatile accommodation which could be used as an annexe or extra living space currently comprising: upgraded cloakroom, utility room, recently re-fitted bathroom, 14' bedroom and a lovely 15' x 3' dining room with its polished wooden flooring and feature arched window.

On the first floor are three generous bedrooms (two with wardrobe cupboards and wash basins) and a family bathroom.

To the front of the property is a large driveway providing extensive vehicle parking and turning space with a further gravel driveway at the side of the building. At the front is also a fantastic south facing paved courtyard garden area providing a real suntrap particularly during the summer months. The grounds are an exceptional feature extending in all to approximately 1.5 acres (s.t.s) and provide the occupants with an excellent degree of privacy and seclusion. There are lawned gardens, wooded copse stocked with a myriad of spring bulbs. There are paved terraces and a wealth of magnificent mature trees. Within the grounds is a timber games room / studio (23'x7') with power, lighting and an adjoining 23' garden store. There is a recently built double garage / workshop (21'x15') with a useful storage area behind. To the rear of the house is a large stone terrace and original well.

The Old Stables occupies a stunning secluded setting at the end of a long private driveway (owned by The Grange). The property is situated within part wooded grounds on the outskirts of the village and is within easy reach of the excellent local amenities Thurston has to offer which include a well-regarded community college, primary school, excellent shop/post office, garage, two public houses, community centre, village hall and Church. Thurston has a thriving community and is situated approximately four miles to the East of the historic market town of Bury St Edmunds. Excellent access is gained to the A14 dual carriageway linking the East coast ports, Cambridge and London via the M11 motorway and access to Stowmarket with its main line link to London.
