Clamp Farm Barn is situated in a tranquil setting in the heart of rural Suffolk and usefully located to facilitate the ideal commute.

Extensively remodelled in 2006 and superbly extended to incorporate an indoor swimming pool and self-contained two bedroom annexe accommodation with kitchen and bathroom in addition to the four bedrooms in the principal barn. Of particular note is the spectacular double-height vaulted ceilings and substantial open-plan living spaces; the wealth of period studwork and tie beams on display; the statement brick chimneybreast with large inglenook fireplace and wood burning stove; mezzanine galleried interior design; and, the superior master bedroom suite. Also, a cavernous kitchen/breakfast room with separate utility room.

Pristine landscaping with expanses of lawn, terraced areas for entertaining and gated pathways.
