The property is situated in the civil parish of Rednhall with Harleston on the borders of Norfolk and Suffolk giving close access to the main A140 and A143. The village is well known for its historic St Marys Church of which the property was the former rectory.
The property is beautifully screened from the road in a central village location next to the church. You first approach the residence by a shingle driveway with brick piered entrance, well maintained hedging and as you proceed towards the property, the driveway widens to provide ample parking as the gardens unfold beyond.
You are welcomed beyond the porchway into a spacious entrance hall with the stunning original staircase and study area.

The sitting room is fitted with substantial library shelving, an open fireplace, built-in drinks cabinet and windows providing views of the front garden. Beyond this, is a substantial garden room which maintains original external features of the building and provides a further fantastic entertaining space linking onto a paved patio area to the immediate outside.
The ground floor continues with a fully fitted kitchen with wall and base units, utility room with fitted walk-in store cupboard and downstairs cloak room. To complete the ground floor there is a potential annex offering double bedroom with built-in cupboards and across the hallway, a bathroom fitted with a three piece suite.
Upon ascending the stairs, you arrive at an impressive first floor landing flooded with light from the front. The landing gives access to a separate cloakroom, four bedrooms of which three are ensuite.
To the outside of the property is access to the cellar which provides ample storage and houses the oil fired central heating boiler.
As you explore further, you will discover a substantial lawned area and beyond the hedge you find a fully enclosed tennis court, four hole golf course with multiple tee positions giving flexible approach options. Continuing round the garden the tall trees take president as you are embraced by the wonderful woodland gardens hosting a wealth of wild flowers and diverse plants and trees. As you arrive back towards the front of the property you will be met by a large pond with a neighbouring dove coupe.
