Situated on the northern fringes of Rougham, and surrounded by farmland, The Chimneys is a beautifully presented and much-improved family house.
Originally dating back to the early 20th century, this luminescent property has been subsequently extended in more recent times to both the north and south.
The house has been completely modernised and remodelled, providing exceptional rooms of the highest quality, with partial under-floor heating, high grade flooring and tiling, together with handmade replacement windows.
The bedrooms are arranged over three floors, with generous sizes and elegant proportions, together with a high level of natural light.
The ground floor comprises a large reception hall, cloakroom, a triple-aspect drawing room with open fire, sitting room with wood burning stove, laundry room, and a highly crafted bespoke kitchen/breakfast/garden room opening to a fabulous indoor swimming pool.
On the first floor is a large study/landing, master bedroom with en suite shower room, guest bedroom with en suite shower room and two further double bedrooms served by the principal bathroom.
Two further double bedrooms are on the second floor, sharing a bathroom.
To the east of the main house is a barn and outbuilding complex, with its own vehicle access.
The external buildings provide further scope for improvement or additional accommodation.
At the moment, the two-storey barn is being used as a gymnasium and first-floor games room, with adjoining buildings comprising a large garage block, garden store and work room.
The property is approached from New Road via electric security gates onto a large circular driveway.
The entrance is surrounded by beautifully kept gardens, with mature trees, shrubbery and flowering beds.
The main garden area lies to the east, with large terrace area, formal lawns, elevated decked seating area adjoining a landscaped pond, kitchen garden, orchard and meadow.
Rougham is served by a small store, well-regarded school, church, public house, Blackthorpe Barn events location and Ravenwood Hall hotel.
This six bedroom country house is situated just five minutes away from Bury St Edmunds, a town with rich cultural heritage.
