Understood to have been built approximately 300 hundred years ago and extended/refurbished in more recent years, this elegant detached former farmhouse retains many original features complementing elegantly proportioned accommodation possessing a most comfortable atmosphere. The house was re-roofed approximately five years ago with a rear extension built approximately 10 years ago and also offers a generous rear garden, two driveways and a detached barn/workshop garage, whilst situated on the edge of a popular village.

The beautifully arranged accommodation currently in brief comprises: Traditional entrance door opening to an entrance porch with original door to a reception hall with pamment flooring and elegant staircase with arch above off to first floor. A door opens to a comfortable sitting room with exposed timbers, pamment flooring, large inglenook style fireplace, wood burning stove, window to front and opening to a study with french windows to gardens. The separate dining room is a particularly elegant reception with pamment tiled flooring, large inglenook fireplace, window to front and built in cupboard. The kitchen breakfast room is fitted with a range of storage units beneath preparation surfaces and complemented by built-in appliances, quarry tiled floor, butler sink, spotlighting, window to side and rear and door to a ground floor shower room. A spacious utility room is a more recent addition to the house and is fitted with an extensive range of units, sink, boiler and door to gardens.

On the first floor is a generous landing/study area which formally was a fifth bedroom. The four comfortable bedrooms are all of a good size and a family bathroom with free standing bath and airing cupboard completes the accommodation.

Outside
There are two driveways providing off road vehicle parking and access to a small detached barn/garage which could be used for a workshop, etc. The rear gardens are mostly laid to lawn and include a summer house, play house, flowering plants, trees and shrubs in all about 0.19 acres (s.t.s).


Location
Finningham is a semi-rural yet convenient village situated with good access to three well-served market towns, two of which benefit from mainline rail connections. The village itself has a public house and a bus service, whilst the neighbouring village of Walsham-le-Willows offers further amenities, with popular local butcher and delicatessen, public house and schooling. Bury St Edmunds is a unique and dazzling historic gem with a richly fascinating heritage - the striking combination of medieval architecture, elegant Georgian squares and glorious Cathedral and Abbey Gardens provide a distinctive visual charm. With prestigious shopping, an award-winning market, plus a variety of cultural attractions and fine places to stay, Bury St Edmunds is under two hours from London and very convenient for Cambridge, Ipswich and Norwich.
