Suffolk's most covetable house?

For sale through the Ipswich office of Savills (01473 234800) at a guide price of £1.25m, Grade II-listed Olden Manor in the conservation village of Higham, Suffolk, was nominated by Marcus Binney, in his book In Search of the Perfect House, as his ‘most covetable 15th- or 16th-century timber-framed house…in Suffolk’.

For the past eight years, the house, set in almost an acre of delightful gardens and grounds, has been the cherished weekend home of London-based David Peters and his family. During their tenure, house and garden have been renewed and restored to create the perfect village hideaway in the heart of Constable country, 50 minutes from Colchester to London Liverpool Street. The house boasts an impressive, double-height, galleried Great Hall, two reception rooms, a kitchen/ breakfast room, five bedrooms and three bath/shower rooms.

The guide price is £1.25m. For further information please contact Savills on 01473 234 800.
