Grade II* listed Popples Farmhouse stands in 8.2 acres of enchanting gardens, grounds and paddocks.

Tom Orford of Savills in Ipswich is already fielding enquiries for Grade II*-listed Popples Farmhouse at Brettenham, near Lavenham, Suffolk, which was relaunched on the market in the run-up to Easter, at a revised guide price of £1.75m.

Home to its present owners for more than 20 years, Popples Farmhouse, previously known as Poplars Farm, has been lovingly maintained, inside and out.

It offers 4,810sq ft of surprisingly light and bright family accommodation, with four reception rooms, a kitchen/breakfast room, 6/7 bedrooms and four bathrooms.
