General information An impressive Victorian farmhouse with beautifully presented family accommodation set in established grounds of about 1.56 acres in a popular village setting.

Willow Tree Farm is a delightful extended farmhouse which, despite its Victorian origins and fine period features, is fortuitously not listed.  The property is centrally set within a pretty and peaceful yet vibrant village with direct access to the award-winning local farm shop and a short walk to the village pub/tapas bar.  In addition, there is an excellent network of countryside walks across an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty; there is also easy access to Colchester and Bures stations.

The property is of brick construction under a slate roof with sash windows providing much natural light throughout.  The elegant and well-presented interior has high ceilings and a pleasing free-flowing layout which is ideal for entertaining and family living. 

One is instantly impressed on entering the central reception hall from which all the ground floor rooms radiate. There is also an adjoining boot hall and both lead to the stunning kitchen/breakfast/family room which forms the hub of the house and has a wonderful outlook over the garden.  The kitchen is comprehensively fitted with elm bespoke painted units and a central island all with granite worksurfaces; appliances including a red Aga, Neff integral cooker with a gas hob, fridge and freezer as well as plumbing for a dishwasher.  This room flows into the family/garden room which has glazed double doors onto an alfresco dining terrace; both the kitchen and garden room have double glazing.

The elegant formal dining room also adjoins and benefits from a stone fireplace with an inset woodburner; there is a similar fireplace in the drawing room.  The ground floor accommodation is completed by a study/snug as well as a cloakroom.

On the first floor, the naturally light central landing gives access to a superb master bedroom suite with a large ensuite bathroom and lovely views over the garden and beyond.  There are 3 further double bedrooms, a further ensuite shower room and a family bath/shower room.

The outside The established grounds of about 1.56 acres form an important feature.  The property is approached via a gated driveway leading to a generous parking courtyard to the side of the house and gives access to the double garage which incorporates a purpose built wine cellar.  

The formal south facing gardens are mainly laid to lawn interspersed with colourful flower beds and borders incorporating typical English country garden flowers such as agapanthus, irises, roses, foxgloves, peonies and lavender; there is also a securely fenced water lily pond.  Fine specimen trees and hedging provide a good degree of privacy and seclusion. 

There is a delightful south facing terrace which is ideal for alfresco dining with direct access from the family/garden room.  A heated swimming pool area is fully enclosed and enjoys a sunny aspect and good privacy, this also incorporates a pool house/changing room. 

Beyond the garden is a gated and fenced meadow/paddock of about 0.5 acres (sts) surrounded my mature trees. We understand the fenced grounds are securely dog-proofed.

Versatile outbuildings include a former milking parlour which is currently used as a studio/party room and has the potential to convert into an annexe or holiday let accommodation (stp).  There is an adjoining workshop/former stable as well as a further detached stable - both could easily be returned to their original use or alternatively converted into a home office/gym etc.

Location Assington is a pretty and popular village with local amenities including a pub/tapas bar, an award-winning farm shop, a lifestyle interior design shop, hairdressers, florist, dog groomers, country kitchen cafe, a Church and active village hall.  It is a friendly and inclusive village surrounded by open countryside and an excellent network of walks leading to an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  The nearby market towns of Sudbury and Hadleigh provide for more extensive needs including a selection of supermarkets such as Waitrose, Sainsburys and Tescos.  There are branch line stations at Sudbury and Bures, as well as easy access to the mainline station in Colchester with fastest trains to Liverpool Street taking from 48 minutes.  This is a wide selection of nearby schools with local bus services for the Ipswich and Colchester schools.
