This fine detached farmhouse stands in beautiful, generous grounds affording idyllic countryside views. The property is situated in a semi-rural setting, on a quiet country road, on the edge of this popular and well-served village. The house has been sympathetically renovated, thoughtfully reconfigured and extended by the current owners; all principal reception rooms and bedrooms offer incredible views over the wonderful established garden and the sense of the rural setting are ever present from within the house. The property is of brick construction, with rendered elevations, under a clay pan tiled roof. The grounds of one acre (subject to survey) are a fine attribute of the property and are complimented by a wooden triple bay cart lodge and excellent off-road parking.

Accommodation
The luxuriously appointed accommodation possesses a light and airy atmosphere boasting excellent proportions and in brief comprises: entrance door opening to the inner hall which extends to the versatile reception area; a generous space in which to host larger social occasions and family gatherings. Double doors lead to the drawing room, a splendid reception with delightful views, French doors to rear terrace and feature brick fireplace. The dining room is a delightful space; a superb room for entertaining and enjoys fine views to three aspects, with the study a further useful versatile room. The stylish kitchen / breakfast / family room forms the heart of the house and glazed doors and windows bring the garden into the room; the family area offers an incredibly relaxing and light rich setting. The bespoke kitchen, designed and built by Robert Bridges, is a fine attribute of the home; beautiful units, complimented by granite work surfaces and limestone flooring, provide ample storage, with the central island heightening the appeal of the room. As one would expect from a house of this stature the kitchen offers a Rangemaster, built in extractor hood, fridge and dishwasher. Ideal for countryside living, this room is complemented by a generous boot room, large utility and cloakroom. There is a further cloakroom situated off from the main entrance hall.

On the first floor is a large galleried landing, (with airing cupboard housing the recently installed warmflow hot water system), giving access to the superb master suite with dressing room / 5th bedroom, en-suite shower room. Three further generous bedrooms, a stylish en-suite and a family bath and shower room completes the beautifully presented accommodation.


Outside
Overall the grounds and views are simply quite stunning and ideal for family living and formal entertaining. Gated access leads to the driveway and triple bay cart-lodge; this benefits from an individual power unit and senor lighting. The gardens wrap around both sides of the house and lead to the south westerly side of the property. Here you will find a marvellous terrace, ideal for alfresco dining, with steps down to the main lawn. The gardens are interspersed and edged with flowerbeds and attractive raised brick borders.


Situation
The house occupies a splendid setting along a small quiet lane on the outskirts of the village. Cockfield (voted 'Suffolk Village of the Year 2012) is a sought after village situated approximately 8 miles to the south of Bury St Edmunds. The village offers a good range of amenities and these can be reached via the footpath along the old railway line and then along Perrydown Lane; these include a well-regarded primary school, two public houses and a village shop with post office.
