Historic properties rarely come finer than Grade II* Listed Popples Farmhouse.

The 15th-century, timber-framed and moated property set in just over eight acres, lies just south of the conservation village of Brettenham, just four miles from the medieval town of Lavenham and nine miles from Bury St Edmunds. Old Buckenham Hall prep school is within walking distance.

Full of original features, including exposed timbers and leaded light windows, the property is maintained to a very high standard.

Popples Farmhouse has six bedrooms including a master suite and a guest suite, each with dressing room and bathroom.

On the ground floor there is a very large drawing room with inglenook fireplace, a sitting room, dining room, study, kitchen/breakfast room and utility room.

The extensive range of refurbished outbuildings include an annexe currently used as an office. It has a kitchen/living area with a wood-burning stove, and a shower room.

There is also a pool room with kitchen area, two showers and a separate WC, and further outbuildings for storage, a workshop and garaging.

Within the grounds is a heated swimming pool and hard surface tennis court. The beautifully designed gardens include well-stocked flower borders and a variety of mature trees. There is also a large and productive vegetable garden and two paddocks with post and rail fencing.

Charles Mitchell, of Strutt & Parker, said: “It is remarkable that a house which is nearly 600 years old is so well-suited for modern day living. The setting and location are both excellent.”
