The gardens and grounds are extensive and include two useful fields, amounting in total to around 21 acres. Near to the house are two walled gardens but the principal feature is the former moat which creates an enchanting island with an orchard, accessed over a wooden bridge: this area is a haven for wildlife with a large number of wild duck and other birds in evidence. There are also many mature trees on the property including fine examples of oak, beech, lime and horse chestnut and near the western boundary an arboretum has been planted.

There are outbuildings to the north east of the property which offer storage and scope for equestrian use – here the tennis court and swimming pool are situated with changing rooms and a shower.

The property is situated in open countryside just to the west of the small village of Beyton and around four miles east of Bury St Edmonds which has an excellent range of amenities. The railway station at Stowmarket offers a regular service to London Liverpool Street.

The guide price is £879,000. For further information please contact Hamptons International on 01386 852205 or visit
