Have your say

This detached former rectory has been developed into a rural family home.

The original part of the house dates back to the 17th century, and is set away from any neighbours within its own substantial plot, which is in excess of a third of an acre.

This country house boasts superb views over open fields to all sides.

The inside of the house is decorated with remnants of timber frame construction with herringbone patterned brickwork. This links the rest of the house to the original part of the property.

This has been extended in more recent times and is now set out over three floors, with the ground floor comprising an entrance hall, reception room, dining room, kitchen, utility room and rear entrance hall which links to the integral double garage.

Seven family-sized bedrooms are set out over two floors, with a family bathroom and separate cloakroom rooms on the first floor.

The second floor contains two further rooms plus a landing. The house benefits from an internal floor area of 2,000 square feet excluding the garage.

It offers a wealth of character and interest which can be seen from the superb beams featured in both the inside and outside areas of the house.

Due to the Old Rectory’s isolated and elevated position, panoramic views of the countryside are available.

The property itself is accessed via a long driveway which we are awaiting confirmation but which we believe to be in the ownership of this property.

Given the very private setting as well as the well-served village in which the house is located, the agents Lacy Scott & Knight recommend an early inspection.

The gardens extend to all sides of the property.

The home’s beautiful grounds are enclosed by a mixture of hedging and brick walls.

A quaint orchard lined with wild flowers can be found to the left hand side of the front garden, which flanks the long drive.

The back garden contains a paved patio area as well as an oil tank and greenhouse.

Hopton lies in a delightful part of the county with excellent local amenities including the All Saints Church, a doctor’s surgery and the Vine pub.

The Old Rectory is in a idyllic spot to enjoy Suffolk village life yet enjoy privacy at home.

The guide price for this property is £500,000 and it is offered through agents Lacy Scott & Knight in Bury St Edmunds on 01284 748600.
