Lamarsh Hall is an outstanding country residence thought to date back to around 1485 and most likely built by the Beaufort family, Earls of Somerset, who were lords of the manor of Lamarsh at the time. In the early 16th century, the manor belonged directly to King Henry VIII and the house was subsequently repaired and extended and the external timbers exposed to give it its traditional Suffolk Hall House appearance that can be seen today. During the current owner's tenure, the property has been altered and extended to provide a charming blend of character and contemporary convenience well-suited to modern living together with newly installed equestrian facilities of the highest standard.

The accommodation is primarily arranged over two storeys and provides two wonderful reception rooms with high ceilings, exposed timbers and fine inglenook and brick arched fireplaces. A bright and sunny island kitchen/breakfast room provides a wonderful area to dine whilst enjoying views over the grounds and there is the additional benefit of a well-appointed scullery, boot room, cellar and ground floor cloakroom. A total of four bedrooms are served by two bathrooms (master with en-suite) all with beautifully restored original oak floorboards and timbers.

The formal gardens are comprised of gently undulating lawns with a wonderful variety of mature trees and well-stocked flowerbeds including oak, silver birch and horse chestnut. A row of cricket bat willows are nearing maturity along one boundary and there are further clusters of native trees and small fenced areas with mature oaks.

EQUESTRIAN FACILITIES As part of the extensive programme of refurbishment, the current owners have created equestrian facilities which have been completed to an incredible standard. A total of 8 stables are arranged around a central yard, all of which are a generous size of a minimum of 13ft x 13ft. Two of the stables are a minimum of 15ft x 15ft which are suitable for foaling. 6 of the stables (arranged in 3 sets of 2) are accessed by a shared sheltered bay perfect for tacking up and grooming.

INCOME POTENTIAL Lamarsh Hall and its facilities offers considerable income potential from a variety of potential revenue streams. The two-bedroom converted threshing barn and one-bedroom cottage both currently generate significant rental income (for further details please contact David Burr). The extensive equestrian facilities, while currently with planning consent for use by Lamarsh Hall only could potentially become a further revenue stream (subject to any necessary change of use or planning application). A total of 8 stables and around 12.5 acres of paddocks offer the clear potential to run a viable stable yard together with the large agricultural barns for the storage of hay, straw and feed.
