The thatched Old Black Horse Farm is a substantial Grade II listed, traditional timber-framed farmhousewith colour-washed walls.
It has been subject to a meticulous restoration programme by the current owners, who have cleverly fused original elements with modern improvements and efficiencies.
So alongside traditional features are a bespoke hand-made kitchen, hand-made timber sealed unit windows, oak doors, architraves and staircases and oil-fired ‘zoned’ heating system.
These improvements have been blended with the heavily timbered frame and original inglenook fireplaces. As a result the owners have created a stunning period house with lots of living space.
The Finningham house’s accommodation is arranged over three-floors and the agents say it offers versatility with all three reception rooms featuring oak-glazed doors providing access to the south-facing gardens.
That includes the 5.58m by 3.52m kitchen breakfast room, with its painted units and ceramic tiled floor.
There is also a 5.58m by 4.38m separate dining room and 5.58m by 4.61m sitting room, both with inglenook fireplaces.
The ground floor is completed by a 3.58m by 3.47m snug, a utility room and a toilet with washbasin.
On the first floor, accessed from a large landing area, is a triple-aspect 5.58m by 4.37m master bedroom with en suite shower room.
Three more bedrooms , the smallest of which is 2.77m by 2.84m are served by the family bathroom.
On the second floor is a large 3m by 4.73m landing which is currently used as a study.
On either side of that is a vaulted ceilinged 3.14m by 4.37m bedroom and a 2.27m by 3.02m bedroom or store room.
The Old Black Horse Farm is set-back from the village road behind post-and-rail fencing and mature trees, leading onto a large gravelled parking area.
The rear south-facing garden is mainly lawned interspersed with mature trees and shrubbery, witha paddock and large natural pond.
The total area is about an acre.
Finningham is a semi-rural village conveniently situated for access to well-served market towns, two with main-line rail connections.
The village has a pub and bus-service whilst the neighbouring village of Walsham Le Willows has a popular local butcher, wine merchant, two pubs and a school.
Stowmarket is 15 minutes drive from the house, with railway station providing a direct line to Liverpool Street Station in 90 minutes. It is about 30 minutes drive from Bury St Edmunds, which also has trains to London.
