Swans Nest is a Grade II listed country property with Tudor origins on the edge of Westerfield in Suffolk. The property has been extended and altered down the years and now offers light, well-laid out family accommodation.

The house has two elegant principal reception rooms with fireplaces and a comfortable conservatory. The spacious kitchen has an Aga with the cellars beneath, while an oak staircase leads to the five main bedrooms including the master suite, four bathrooms, and the sixth bedroom, which is currently used as a study.
