Capel St Mary
Guide price: £1.35million
Hidden away down a private driveway and surrounded by open countryside, this fivebedroom Grade II* listed country house has a wealth of original character.
An impressive double height grand hall leads to several well-proportioned reception rooms that benefit from noteworthy features such as exposed beams and studwork, open fireplaces and French windows.
The Old Dairy – a period two-bedroom cottage – is attached to the main house but with a separate entrance. The beautifully mature grounds are another highlight, surrounding the property with formal gardens and well-maintained outbuildings.
Property agent Peter Ogilvie said: “This superb period house is presented to a high standard throughout and is ideally placed for a commute to London, with Ipswich and Manningtree railway stations both close by. The Old Dairy meanwhile provides plenty of potential for independent living or could just as easily be used for additional accommodation within the main house.”
