An exceptional farmhouse set in about 2.44 acres incorporating beautiful gardens, paddocks and traditional outbuildings including 2 Loddon stables in a glorious countryside setting. Easy access for Old Buckenham Hall prep school.

Jordans Farm is an enchanting farmhouse set in about 2.44 acres with traditional outbuildings in a peaceful setting surrounded by gently rolling countryside. Despite the property’s many period features we understand the house is not listed. Of timber frame construction with a sympathetic extension under a reed-thatched roof, the house offers versatile accommodation which is well presented throughout. The generous ground floor accommodation has a pleasing free-flowing layout which radiates from a central full height reception hall making it ideal for entertaining and family living. Of particular note is the large drawing room with a fireplace, open studwork and double doors that open onto the west facing terrace which enjoys a lovely outlook. This room also flows into the garden room with beautiful garden views, the study and formal dining room with a snug/further study beyond. There is a comprehensively fitted farmhouse-style kitchen/breakfast room with an oil fired Aga and electric Aga mate, together with granite worksurfaces and a butler-style sink. A utility/boot room and cloakroom complete the ground floor. On the first floor a central landing gives access to the 4 bedrooms, 2 of which have ensuite bath/shower rooms, as well as to the family bathroom. There is the potential to create a 5th bedroom if one doesn’t require 3 bathrooms. The far reaching views to all aspects are quite spectacular.

Jordans Farm sits on a little used country lane surrounded by countryside on the rural edge of Preston St Mary. The village has a popular pub/restaurant, The Six Bells, as well as a fine parish church and an excellent network of countryside walks and hacking countryside. The popular day & boarding prep school, Old Buckenham Hall, is just 2 miles distant in neighbouring Brettenham and there is a primary school in Lavenham, about 2.5 miles. The medieval village of Lavenham has excellent amenities including shops and award-winning restaurants. Nearby Bury St Edmunds and Sudbury provide for more extensive needs, both having stations as well.

The grounds of about 2.44 acres form an important feature. A 5-bar gate opens onto a spacious parking area with a drive leading beyond to an area suitable for a horse trailer etc. The stunning gardens enjoy a south westerly aspect and incorporate an expanse of lawn, beautifully stocked and colourful flower and shrub beds, a sun terrace, pond, fruit trees and a productive kitchen garden. The garden gives way to a small fenced paddock with a larger paddock beyond. There is a summer house and a couple of garden stores. The equestrian facilities are ideal for those with a couple of horses or ponies, incorporating 2 Loddon stables, a tack room/yard office, large workshop/potential garaging and a hay/straw barn.

The next steps...

Before making an offer on a property you will want to consider your financial situation, your income and outgoings.

Will you finance the purchase of your next property from the sale of an existing property which can put you in a chain, arrange a mortgage through your bank or buy the property outright.
To help you finance your next property purchase, we have a long established relationship with an independent mortgage broker who can discuss your situation with you.

Remember that having a 'mortgage decision in principle' can make you a more attractive buyer when you make an offer on a property. Contact our mortgage advisers for free, no obligation and impartial advice.
Some advantages of a broker are:

  • They do all the legwork for you, working on your behalf with the lender
  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • You get more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

However with your bank maybe able to:

  • Build off existing relationship (discounts if you have a checking/saving account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
  • Lower interest rates in some cases
  • Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.

When it comes to making an offer on a property a bit of negotiation is to be expected, however don't offer so little that you end up in a lengthy negotiation process, as you might lose the property altogether if someone else makes a higher bid.

If other offers have been made on a property we aren't legally able to tell you what they are, but we may indicate if they were close to the asking price.
