Malt House Farm is a 17th century traditional Suffolk property on the edge of the village of Lower Ufford. The house has been recently extended, and has excellent accommodation which includes a central reception hall, a beautifully-proportioned drawing room, snug sitting room and a kitchen/breakfast room complete with Aga.

Upstairs are five bedrooms, most of which have fine views of the gardens, and a family bathroom. There is also planning permission for a conservatory to be added, linking the drawing room and the reception hall.

Outside is self-contained granary annexe which presently houses a living room, kitchenette and shower room, with two bedrooms above. The former farmyard has a traditional barn adjacent to which is a workshop/games room, and positioned within the yard is an area of kitchen garden.

The gardens are mainly laid to lawn with colourful herbaceous borders. To the house is the terrace which catches wonderful sun. The top meadow would be ideal as a paddock and has wonderful views of the Deben Valley; the grounds come to nearly two-and-a-half acres.

Sitting just on the edge of Lower Ufford, which has a fine church, good local pub and a tennic club, Malt House Farm is just two miles from Woodbridge and nine miles from Ipswich.

The guide price is £875,000. For further information please contact Jackson-Stops & Staff on 01473 218218 or visit www.jackson-stops.co.uk.
