PROPERTY DESCRIPTION An extended four-bedroom farmhouse, set approximately 0.25 miles down a private access road, located in the much sought-after Suffolk village of Aldham. The principal farmhouse is understood to date from the 1920s and offers unlisted status, having been comprehensively extended and enhanced by the current owners, offering approximately 2,500 sq ft of accommodation comprising three ground-floor reception rooms. Offering generously proportioned accommodation throughout, the property has been designed with a clear emphasis on retaining many of the hallmarks and features associated with period farmhouses including open fireplaces, nine-foot ceiling heights, dado rails, a traditional farmhouse fitted kitchen and double-hung sash windows. Located amidst three other individual properties on this private road, two of which previously formed part of the collection of farm buildings, the property further benefits from a triple cart lodge, a versatile outbuilding offering scope for conversion into annexe/ancillary accommodation/holiday cottage accommodation (subject to the necessary planning consents), extensive gardens enjoying a south-westerly aspect abutting open farmland and a total plot size of approximately 1.41 acres. An adjacent spinney and paddock of approximately 1.24 acres is available via separate negotiation.
