General information A delightful unlisted period house with no immediate neighbours set in grounds of 1.7 acres leading down to the banks of the River Stour, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with the additional benefit of a detached holiday let in the grounds.

Originally the cow herders cottage for one of the surrounding farms, Marsh Barn is thought to be around 200 years old and has been in the same family since 1965. The property could benefit from some modernisation and previously had planning consent for a two storey side extension including balcony to take in the full views of the river and surrounding countryside. Additionally there is a detached converted barn which is successfully used for a holiday let within the grounds, as well as numerous timber outbuildings.

Upon entering the property the dining hall is part of the original structure and has exposed timbers, attractive wood block flooring open fireplace and stairs to the first floor. The kitchen is adjacent and has a range of units in a farmhouse style, with wood block work tops, quarry tiled floor, integral oven and gas hob and wall mounted gas fired boiler. A lobby is situated off the dining hall with double doors leading to the garden and provides access to both ground floor bedrooms and shower room. The first floor has a feature sitting room with aspects to three elevations designed to take in the breath taking views of the river and surrounding farmland and provides access to both first floor bedrooms.

The properties original barn, converted in to a holiday let, consists of a spacious living/bedroom with separate kitchen and shower room, which could also be used for annex accommodation if required.
