Outside Brook Farmhouse is situated on a no through road at the end of a quiet private track located at the very end of Buttons Green. The property is surrounded by undulating countryside with fields, crop and impressive views. A truly remote proposition all the while being a stone's throw from Bury St Edmunds. The Farmhouse is set near central to the plot and the gardens are therefore afforded a good deal of light at all hours of the day. To the rear, one will find a paved terrace looking on to the open countryside through the shaped vines allowing for an idyllic entertainment area or tranquil al-fresco dining location.
The grounds are interspersed with a range of useful outbuildings in addition to the accommodation including a substantial log store and WORKSHOP which would be suitable for conversion (subject to relevant permissions). Boundaries are clearly defined by the gated entrance and part moated border surround the property.
In all about 0.7 acres.
