This Suffolk home is the perfect retreat for horse-lovers




This Grade II Listed detached farmhouse has an elegant Georgian facade and could be yours for just over £1m.

The home, in Mill Lane, Stowmarket, also has later additions and is set in a countryside setting within five minutes of a commuter rail link and has the added bonus of equestrian facilities.

The property - on the market with David Burr for £1,085,000 - has a range of outbuildings, stable block and paddocks. In all, it extends to a little under 4.5 acres.

Key features of the lovely home include three reception rooms, a kitchen featuring an AGA, a living room, handy utility room, cellar and cloakrooms.

To keep even the largest family happy, there are six bedrooms, two bathrooms and a shower room.

Outside, wrought iron handmade double gates open to a large sweeping gravel drive providing extensive off-road parking and this continues to the equestrian facilities beyond.

There is also a two-storey former coach house, with weather boarded elevations under a slate tiled roof. The ground floor is divided into two distinct areas, one previously having been used as a stable. There are a range of ancillary buildings, sheds and log store.

The equestrian area comprises a post and rail shingle area with concrete pathways leading out to large hedge-lined paddocks with field views beyond. There is also a stable block with a 10ft. high ceiling divided into three distinct areas to include two stables and a tack/store room.
