A careful conversion
This glorious converted barn occupies a wonderul situation in the village of Little Stonham, six miles from Stowmarket.
Believed to date back to the 17th century, Waltham Hall Barn underwent a spectacular conversion in 2005 with renowned builders Culford Construction.
Considerable attention to detail has been given to features including exposed beams and an inglenook fireplace.
Of particular note are the sitting room and drawing room, both boasting views to the front of the property.
These reception rooms are positioned either side of the spacious fully vaulted entrance hall, with exposed studwork and wooden floorboards.
Reached from the drawing room, the wonderful kitchen/breakfast room – handmade by Lavenham joinery – is a stunning feature of the property.
A passageway from the sitting room leads to two ground floor bedrooms, both with ensuite facilities and built-in cupboards.
Adjoining the kitchen/breakfast room is a family room/study, which leads into the dining room at the rear of the property. Downstairs there is also a pantry, adjoining the kitchen, and a utility room.
From the entrance hall, a double staircase leads up to the galleried landing, which has access to two vaulted bedrooms.
Both benefit from ensuite facilities, while one has access to an attic room (with low head height).
Waltham Hall Barn is approached over a gravel driveway, leading to a large parking area with space for several cars.
From here there is access to a large detached tandem garage, with a garden store at one end and two further garages with twin remote up and over doors.
The gardens and grounds can be found on the southern side, and are a tremendous feature of the property having been landscaped over the last ten years.
The gardens feature a terraced courtyard area immediately adjacent to the house, ideal for barbecues and al fresco dining, and a wonderful pond with an abundance of wildlife.
There is an array of formal mature herbaceous borders to include trees and shrubs, a raised rose garden housing a greenhouse, and raised vegetable beds.
A five-bar gate gives access to a paddock with stable block/tack room, with weather boarded wood store. There is also access to this field off the main drive.
Measuring just under 5.5 acres (subject to survey) the gardens and grounds are fully enclosed by laurel hedging and fencing.
There is also a small orchard area with fruit trees and a woodland walk.
