A rare opportunity to restore and extend a lovely Grade II Listed detached property believed to be of Tudor origin and having many notable period features; of particular note are the display of double ogee timbers and inglenook fireplace with herringbone brickwork. The house as it stands has a timber frame and double period brick exterior giving more insulation than the traditional Suffolk house. Manor Lodge enjoys an idyllic setting opposite the Grade II* Listed Manor Farm in this highly favoured Suffolk area and has grounds measuring approximately 2.4 acres. The property has planning permission granted to create a two storey side extension, single storey extension and a separate triple bay cart lodge with useful room above. It is fair to say that Manor Lodge does require restoration, however does offer huge potential whilst sitting away from the road and enjoying far reaching countryside views.
The house in its current condition includes;
Part glazed entrance door opening to:
SITTING ROOM: Dual aspect room with exposed timbers and studwork. Staircase rising to first floor. Opening through to;
KITCHEN: An inglenook fireplace under Elm bressumer having herringbone brickwork creates the main focal point of the room. Exposed timbers and studwork. Dual aspect room.
LANDING: Having front aspect overlooking the garden and countryside beyond. Recessed store area.
BEDROOM 1: With dual aspect of the grounds. Corner fitted wardrobe.
BEDROOM 2: With exposed timbers and studwork. Views overlooking the grounds.
It is understood that planning permission has been granted for a two storey side extension and is to be accessed where the current chimney stack in the sitting room is located. The current plans suggest opening the original kitchen and sitting room to make this into one room with door through to an inner hall with staircase to the first floor, shower room with downstairs W.C. and wash hand basin and an opening through to the living/kitchen/dining area being designed with French style doors to the rear grounds. On the first floor it is proposed a corridor be placed where the current staircase is located to give access to bedrooms and the main bedroom being in the new extension. Planning reference no: 3999/15
AGENTS NOTE: The vendors have made us aware that the chimney stack is beyond repair and is to be removed as part of the planning permission.

The driveway continues to the grounds and property. The grounds of Manor Lodge are a sheer delight and are believed to measure approximately 2.4 acres which are divided into distinctive areas, the first being ear marked on the right hand side as you approach the property with planning permission granted to build a triple bay cart lodge with useful area above. The drive continues to the property. Secondly the house is currently surrounded by mature hedging and sits towards the centre of its gardens which create an idyllic place to enjoy warm summer days being predominantly lawned and interspersed by flower and shrub borders with a variety of established trees. Brick potting shed. Thirdly, the remainder of the acreage to the rear is predominantly grass meadow with post and rail fencing and is to be understood to be for recreational use only and consists of a fruit trees and a further shed ideally placed for garden storage. All-encompassing far reaching countryside views.
