TWO BEDROOM CONVERTED STABLE YARD COTTAGE; IDEAL FOR A COUNTRY GETAWAY OR BEST SUITED FOR EQUESTRIAN FANS
Formally part of the adjacent ‘Potash Farm’, a striking Suffolk farmhouse, which itself has recently been totally rebuilt, Potash Stables is a recently converted self-contained two bedroom annexe / groom’s accommodation comprising a large open-plan living room / kitchen and shower room. For equestrian fans the part converted stable yard retains loosebox and a tack / feed room in addition to a large purpose-built manège, two established post and rail paddocks with water connected and plenty of lorry parking.
Situated at the end of a long (0.5 mile) sweeping drive among rolling Suffolk countryside, a high degree of privacy and seclusion is guaranteed – with only one neighbour – complemented by breath-taking views across farmland towards a picturesque woodland beyond. In all, private grounds extend to approximately 2.25 acres (subject to survey).
POTASH STABLE COTTAGE is situated equidistant between Sudbury and Bury St. Edmunds on the outskirts of the hamlet of Thorpe Morieux (pronounced M’roo) – a small group of houses and a church, set in undulating countryside of the River Brett valley – one of the last places in Suffolk you cannot hear the hum of distant traffic. Lavenham to the south is believed to be one of England’s finest old wool towns with extensive shopping, an exceptional range of restaurants, galleries and amazing timber-frame buildings display centuries of wealth. Ipswich, Bury St. Edmunds and Stowmarket have a wider range of shopping, educational and recreational facilities.
