Rede Hall is a Grade II listed house that comes with a moat and the chance to become lord of the manor.
The hall is a 17th century timber framed house but it stands on a medieval moated site and is being offered with the opportunity to obtain the title of ‘Lord of Rede’ and the privileges this title permits.
The property, formerly a renown Suffolk Punch stud, is approached from the A143 south of Bury St Edmunds, via a long shared driveway, allowing access to both the stable yard, and a another drive leading to Rede Hall and its annexe.
To the south of the house is a private garden area, with an abundance of trees and shrubbery, terrace with water feature and bridge providing pedestrian access to the yard.
The stable yard incorporates 10 high-quality large double-door loose boxes, with electricity and water connected.
Next to the stables is a substantial warehouse or barn.
The 4.24m by 4.57m kitchen diner is decorated in farmhouse style with a Rayburn in the exposed brick inglenook and space for a cooker. It has a ceramic tiled floor and splashbacks.
