The estate agents describe the coach house as being ideal for multi-generational families or for guests as it contains its own kitchen and living area.

Strutt & Parker said of the home: “Offering exceptional and elegantly finished accommodation throughout, this handsome Grade II Listed house – believed to date from the 16th century – occupies a delightful rural setting and is conveniently located within easy reach of the historic town of Bury St Edmunds.”
