Property Description

Jigsaw is delighted to present to the market this exquisite Georgian home; a unique opportunity to acquire an 11 bedroom Grade II listed building in the heart of Stowmarket.

Currently occupied as a successful guest house with seven en-suite guest rooms, the home is steeped in history and character features from the original build in 1702 and Victorian extension, including original fireplaces, ornate coving, and ceiling roses.

The accommodation is of generous proportions, which combined with the high ceilings and exposed flooring, creates a sense of space and grandeur. The home boasts a capacious sitting room, with an attractive open fireplace and a large bay window that floods the room with natural light. The impressive kitchen has an abundance of storage space and preparation surfaces, and also benefits from a walk-in larder and a Rangemaster dual-fuelled cooker. Also comprising of the ground floor is an all-year conservatory with a garden vista and a charming dining room with French doors leading to the veranda.

Two staircases lead to the first floor, where each bedroom is of a generous size with an en-suite bath or shower room. The current owners have lovingly restored the home and have undertaken renovations including a full restoration of the roof and windows, replacement of the electrics and boilers, updated bathrooms and en-suites, the dry lining of the cellar, and restoration of the veranda to incorporate the garden room. Within the mid-1800s the cottage and stables were adjoined to the main house and the current owners have converted the three stables to create ancillary accommodation.

Outside, a south-facing walled garden with fruit trees and bushes is a haven for keen gardeners. The garden is predominantly laid to lawn, surrounded by matures trees, and shrubbery, including one beautiful Continental Magnolia. A pergola covered by grapevine makes for the perfect space for al-fresco dining and entertaining in the warmer months, overlooking a well-stocked pond. The attractive Victorian veranda adds to the charm of the garden and retains some of its original structure, offering shade whilst affording the peaceful vista over the tranquil landscape.

Ample parking for the property is provided by a shingle driveway to the side of the home, widening for ease of turning. The driveway is enclosed by a wall and wooden fencing with attractive borders and has space for several cars.

In the heart of Stowmarket, opposite the theatre, the home is located just a ten-minute walk from Stowmarket Railway Station, with links to Ipswich, Felixstow, Woodbridge, and the Suffolk coast. There is also a direct line to London Liverpool Street, taking just over an hour and 10 minutes. Local bus routes link to the surrounding areas, as well as the historical town of Bury St Edmunds. Stanstead Airport is easily accessible via the A14.

Amenities within the town include a leisure centre, cinema, a variety of shops, schools and restaurants, a golf club and The Museum of East Anglia.
