Stoke-by-Clare's Moor Hall, with seven bedrooms and links to landscape architect Capability Brown, on the market for £1.7m




As house sales have continued throughout the coronavirus pandemic, yet another of Suffolk’s stunning hidden housing gems - which has links to a famous landscape architect - has found its way onto the market.

Nestled between the two picturesque market towns of Haverhill and Sudbury, Moor Hall in Stoke-by-Clare boasts 7,000 square feet of luxury on a 5.5-acre estate.

The Grade II-listed Georgian country beauty has seven bedrooms, five bathrooms and four reception rooms to accommodate those who want to make it a home, and that’s just inside.

While the property does not come cheap – with a current asking price of £1.675 million – for a hefty buck, you get a hefty bang.

As well as the plethora of rooms, the stunning property comes with an annexe, terrace, two lakes, an indoor heated swimming pool with changing rooms and a mezzanine kitchenette.

Agent David Burr says the hall offers 'stunning period features which are complimented by luxurious recent finishes', with the downstairs seating areas and kitchen – with its modern fittings and AGA oven – showcasing the home’s original wooden beams.

The gardens on the beautiful grounds are also rumoured to have been designed by famed landscape artist, Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown, whose mother previously lived at the property.

The next lucky owner will also be able to make use of the local amenities and sports clubs of the charming village of Stoke-by-Clare, sitting on the River Stour and home of Stoke College.

It is possible to tour Moor Hall virtually, estate agents David Burr say. For more details on Moor Hall, contact David Burr on 07187 277811, email clare@davidburr.co.uk or visit their website.
