This superb Grade II Listed country house is situated in a peaceful rural setting enjoying uninterrupted views across the surrounding open countryside. Measuring almost 4500 square feet (including cart lodge garaging), the property has been meticulously restored and updated to an extremely high standard with a wealth of original features retained, including fine fireplaces, wood burning stoves, high ceilings with ornate cornicing, picture rails, fabulous large windows creating a light and airy atmosphere, and polished wooden and pamment flooring.

The particularly elegant accommodation boasts wonderful proportions and in brief comprises: original panelled and glazed entrance door to an elegant reception hall with a fine staircase off to first floor, solid wooden floor and door to a gracious double aspect drawing room with French doors to side and fireplace with slate stone hearth and log burning stove. The formal dining room is a further large and light reception room enjoying double aspect views over the front and side gardens, with an ornate fireplace with slate surround. The farmhouse style AGA kitchen breakfast room has been tastefully updated with an extensive range of wooden shaker style units under granite worktops with Belfast sink inset, and space and plumbing for a dishwasher and microwave. A twin hob AGA is set within a chimney breast with mantle over. A comfortable family room is located at the rear of the property enjoying double aspect views over the rear gardens, with door to the outside courtyard and featuring a further fireplace with slate surround and log burning stove. A study enjoys triple aspect views over the rear and front gardens with the open countryside beyond. The utility room has fitted cupboards and sink, and the large walk in pantry is a very useful feature. There is a secondary staircase to first floor and door to a cellar retaining original storage bins. A traditional "high flush" cloakroom completes the ground floor accommodation.

First Floor Accommodation
An elegant staircase leads from the reception hall to a beautifully light landing with window affording splendid countryside views, wooden floors and high ceilings with ornate cornicing and light pelmets. There are two useful airing cupboards and a further set of former servants' stairs descending to the rear hall area. The master bedroom is a splendid room enjoying views over the front and side gardens and offers plenty of space for wardrobes and drawers. The varnished wooden floors add to the character of the room and there is a decorative cast iron fireplace. Steps lead down to the modern luxurious en-suite which is beautifully fitted with roll top bath with Victorian style shower attachment, wash basin, inset vanity unit, Lefroy Brooks WC, glass double shower cubicle, polished oak flooring, and Jack and Jill style doors to the rear landing. Bedroom 2 is a lovely double aspect light and airy bedroom taking in the outstanding views over the surrounding countryside and featuring a decorative cast iron fireplace. There are three further generous bedrooms and a family bathroom, recently re-fitted and afforded with a great deal of light via a skylight, fitted with a modern white suite comprising Lefroy Brooks WC, wash basin, roll top bath with Victorian style shower attachment and double glazed shower cubicle. There are also wooden floors and the room is tastefully tiled and features two heated towel rails.


Outside
The property is situated on a quiet country lane and approached via double electric gates that open to a gravel driveway providing an abundance of off road parking, with access to a double garage and adjoining double cart lodge. The property sits centrally within its plot and features various large expanses of lawn with several raised vegetable beds and planters, many well stocked mature shrub beds and a large dining terrace that enjoys a south westerly aspect and uninterrupted views across the surrounding countryside. To one side of the property is a sizeable woodland area, filled with many wild trees and plants. An internal courtyard has doors leading to four useful outbuildings, including two garden stores, a large log store and a WC. A high hedge line surrounds the property affording a great deal of privacy, and the superb grounds extend in all to approximately 1.7 acres.


Situation
The house occupies a wonderful rural setting affording stunning views across the surrounding open countryside whilst being situated on the edge of the village. Sapiston is a charming Suffolk village with its newly constructed village hall and has close links to the neighbouring village of Honington. The village is well positioned for Bury St Edmunds (10 miles) and Stowmarket (16 miles), both providing an excellent range of everyday facilities and the latter a commuter rail link to London's Liverpool Street Station.


Directions
When entering the village from the direction of Honington and the A1088, turn left into Coney Weston Road. Follow the road to the crossroads and turn right, where the entrance to the house will be found on the left.
