The accommodation in brief comprises: entrance door to entrance hall with stairs to the first floor, stone flooring, two windows to the side aspect and doors to dining room with window to the front, built-in shelving, cupboard and feature fireplace with stone mantle and hearth. Double doors lead to the magnificent garden room which has been a later addition to the property, offering beautiful views overlooking the gardens on two sides and comprising bi-fold doors opening onto the rear garden, wood flooring and exposed brickwork. Open plan layout through to kitchen/breakfast room, again with wood flooring, exposed original wall of house and windows to the side aspect overlooking the gardens and fitted with a quality range of hand built units, complemented by integrated appliances including AGA oven and hob. The utility room provides space for washing machine and tumble dryer, fitted units with worktop over, stone flooring and hot water cylinder. The sitting room is a superb reception with windows to side and window seat, fireplace with wood burning stove and built-in bespoke bookcase. Rear hall with tiled flooring and two windows to the rear aspect. Cloakroom with wc and wash hand basin. A comfortable family room enjoys views to the gardens and completes the ground floor accommodation.

First Floor Accommodation
Stairs rising from entrance hall to first floor landing with access to loft and doors to five comfortable bedrooms enjoying fabulous views across the gardens and most with built in wardrobes. There are two stylish en-suite shower rooms and a luxurious family bathroom with twin sinks, bath and separate shower enclosure which completes the first floor accommodation.

Maynard House stands within beautiful mature, well stocked grounds, providing an excellent degree of privacy whilst extending in all to just over an acre. The house is approached over a private carriage style driveway providing extensive vehicle parking, turning space and access to the garaging/former fruit shop which could provide a variety of uses/potential to convert into studio or large home office if desired.

To the side of the house is a detached single storey two bedroom annexe cottage with adjoining workshop, which extends to over 800 square feet, providing an excellent opportunity for either further accommodation, office space or any other business use and comprises entrance hall, sitting room, kitchen, two bedrooms, bathroom and garden area. The grounds are private in nature and predominantly lawned, incorporating a variety of mature trees and shrubs, most notably apple trees in light of the property's former use as an orchard. There is a newly laid sandstone terrace providing a superb seating area enjoying views across the grounds.

The house occupies an enviable setting in a quiet situation along a country lane. Bradfield St Clare is a sought after and small village situated only a few miles to the south of the historic market town of Bury St Edmunds and its excellent range of everyday facilities.

Mains electricity and water are connected. Brand new oil fired radiator central heating. Private drainage. Council band G for the main house and band A for the annexe cottage.
