An enchanting and romantic 15th Century 4/5 bedroom family home occupying a peaceful, semi-rural hamlet setting with 1 acre (sts) of delightfully mature, south-facing country cottage gardens.

An outstanding example of its type, timber-framed and plastered with a thatched roof featuring four eyebrow dormers, the property is surprisingly light and airy with mostly high ceilings and spacious accommodation which is superbly presented throughout. Originally two cottages, this unique home retains enormous character blending original period features with high-quality modern finishes and has been meticulously well-maintained.

The beautifully landscaped gardens are one of the property's most outstanding and appealing features. Established and mature, carefully and thoughtfully zoned with many shrubs, grasses and herbaceous perennials, plus spring bulbs (particularly snowdrops and daffodils) and summer bulbs. Fruit trees include apple, pear, cherry, quince, greengage (all with lovely spring blossom) and fig. Other highlights include climbing and rambling roses, Wisteria, Honeysuckle, Clematis and Passion Flower. The main garden is mainly laid to lawn, is south facing and offers a high degree of privacy with a mature hedgerow. The property also benefits from a double garage and off-road parking. Situated in this idyllic semi-rural location, the property enjoys an enviable private setting, surrounded by arable farmland and grazing meadows.

LOCATION:
Great Henny is a charming and tranquil hamlet standing on the west side of the Stour valley on the Essex/Suffolk border. The village benefits from a delightful riverside country pub/restaurant. The historic market town of Sudbury is located less than 4 miles north and its comprehensive amenities include a commuter rail link to London Liverpool Street. Neighbouring Bures also offers a branch-line station and good facilities, whilst there are mainline stations at both Marks Tey and Colchester (London from 47 mins). Highly regarded schools in the area include the top grammar schools in Colchester. There are wonderful country walks from the property plus rowing and paddleboarding on the nearby River Stour.

The surrounding countryside is untouched: gently sloping, quintessential rural Suffolk, as immortalised by the paintings of Constable and Gainsborough.

"The River Stour in its serpentine windings, its floods and drought trickles, has smoothed out a beautiful shallow valley where Essex and Suffolk meet to stare at each other across their common boundary, the river itself. This is cornfield country, broad and gently undulating, well wooded and prosperous, where a pheasant's life is uninsurable and the medieval timber-framed houses are lovingly and expensively restored."
Christopher Somerville writing in The Times.
