An exceptional Grade II listed detached timber framed farmhouse, in the heart of the popular village of Finningham. Set in beautifully landscaped gardens and grounds of 1.64 acres (STS).
ABOUT THE PROPERTY
Green Farm is listed Grade II due to it being of architectural and historical interest. The house presents rendered colour washed elevations, under a peg tiled roof and has particularly fine chimney stacks. The house is full of character and much of the timber frame is exposed internally, showing the beams and studs. The house has some lovely fireplaces including those in the dining hall and sitting room. The house has evolved over the years and offers versatile family accommodation. The position of the house, set well back off Wickham Road at the end of a long drive and the enclosed rear gardens; make this a particularly attractive property for those with children and animals.
ABOUT THE AREA
The property is set in the lovely rural village of Finningham, which has a church and public house (The White Horse). Finningham is almost midway between Bacton & Gislingham, both of which have well stocked village stores for everyday shopping facilities. The market town of Stowmarket is approximately 8 miles away and has a wider range of everyday facilities and amenities, including a main line rail link to London's Liverpool Street station (journey time approx. 90 minutes). Stowmarket is bypassed by the A14 which provides good links to the east to the county town of Ipswich where it joins the A12 to London. To the west, the A14 takes you through to the cathedral town of Bury St Edmunds, Cambridge and ultimately The Midlands.
From Junction 49 on the A14 (Tot Hill) turn right and proceed into Haughley. Proceed straight through Haughley and leave on the Bacton Road in a northerly direction. Proceed through Haughley Green and into Bacton. At the cross roads turn left onto the B1113 and proceed into Finningham. At the cross road at the Finningham White Horse turn right onto Wickham Road and the property will be found on the left hand side.
