General information Situated in this picturesque hamlet on the Essex/Suffolk border is this beautiful Grade II Listed five bedroom detached house occupying beautifully manicured grounds approaching half an acre.

Formerly the public house in Thorington Street, The Old Rose Inn is believed to date back to the early 1500's and was fully converted in 2007 to form this beautifully presented single dwelling. When adapting the building, particular attention was given to retaining as much of the building's character, whilst creating flexible and spacious living accommodation. There has also been a comprehensive security system installed recently and the property benefits from underfloor heating in parts.

There is extensive ground floor accommodation offering versatility, with the sitting room and dining room boasting a wealth of exposed timbers. The family room has a large bay window overlooking the gardens and there is a study; which like the sitting room and family room, all have feature fireplaces. The fifth bedroom or guest accommodation is also on the ground floor with an en-suite shower room and there is a separate cloakroom. The stunning kitchen/breakfast room offers a triple aspect overlooking the gardens and has stone flooring with underfloor heating and a beautifully appointed kitchen with a mixture of granite and wooden work surfaces. There is an oil fired Aga and American style fridge freezer in the kitchen and access to a good sized utility room.

On the first floor is an extremely long landing measuring over 37 ft. which provides access to the four well proportioned bedrooms and family bathroom. The principal bedroom suite has a walk-in dressing room area and large en-suite bathroom with cast iron roll top bath and separate shower facilities.

Outside The property is accessed via a 5-bar electric gate with a curved shingle driveway leading down past the lawns and fruit orchard to a detached double cart lodge, with a further storage area to the side. The gardens are retained from Thorington Street by a high brick wall and traditional English rose garden. Sweeping lawns extend to the west of the property, backing onto open farmland with picturesque views of the valley beyond, together with mature trees including a specimen walnut and Polstead black cherry. A sun terrace wraps around the back of the home with access into the kitchen creating the perfect entertaining space. The plot is approaching approximately 0.5 of an acre in total and is fully enclosed by secure boundaries.
