This wonderfully situated, beautifully proportioned house presents many exceptional opportunities to remodel/extend whilst located in the sought-after and well served village of Great Barton. Built in 1961 and appearing on the market only once previously, this fine home enjoys mature, private grounds with established trees, secluded tennis court, generous lawns and a sweeping horseshoe drive, in all about one acre. The house retains a wealth of original features and every room is of a generous proportion, offering lofty ceilings and towering windows with some also boasting original parquet floors. There is real scope for new owners to put their stamp on the property, which the current owner describes as a very happy and beautiful place to live, somewhere to “feel close to the landscape and nature and to have a sense of tranquility and history”.

The accommodation currently in brief comprises: Entrance door opening to an entrance hall with stairs off to first floor and door to a cloakroom. The sitting room is a particularly light and airy reception with a fine stone fireplace, glass doors to front and side, and door to a ground floor bedroom six / further reception, previously used as an annexe bedroom with a more recently installed en-suite shower room. The drawing room has windows to front and doors opening to a spacious dining room with oak block flooring, feature arched windows overlooking the front gardens and open countryside beyond and door to a sun room. A kitchen breakfast room has a fitted range of units, window to rear, walk in pantry, and separate utility room. A study, with window to side, completes the ground floor accommodation. On the first floor are five bedrooms (all of which command attractive views over the grounds) and a family bathroom.

Rosewood House is situated in a sought after setting overlooking open countryside, located on the edge of the village. Great Barton has a thriving local community and provides an excellent range of local facilities including a well-regarded primary school, church, shop and village hall. The village is situated within only a few miles of Bury St Edmunds and the excellent range of everyday facilities this historic market town has to offer.
