Looking to move to the peaceful countryside? A delightful pink property with its very own established vineyard is for sale in Fressingfield, Suffolk, for £1.35 million.
Dating back to the 17th century, Willow House is a splendid Grade II Listed home boasting a wealth of period character. Some of the head-turning features include the exposed timber beams, brick and terracotta flooring, roaring fireplaces, six grand bedrooms, and the charming one-bedroom annexe known as The Granary.
It's hard to miss the home from the outside, with the pink rendered plaster elevations providing quite the statement. Once you're inside, you'll find three wonderful reception rooms (they're all a similar size), a practical utility room with ample storage, butler's pantry, and a rustic kitchen with shaker-style units, a Belfast sink and a classic cream AGA. It's the ultimate social hub for entertaining.
The gorgeous gardens are definitely worth making a fuss about. What makes the outdoor space so special is the detail and care that's been put in: there's a pathway leading to the main entrance, pristine Wimbledon-style lawns, and a quaint bridge with a stream beneath that's home to a family of ducks. When you're not unwinding on the paved terraced, head to the wildlife garden towards the back.
It gets even better. The biggest draw — and our favourite part — is the peaceful vineyard, which extends to approximately 450ft and provides plentiful Bacchus grapes. Making the most agreeable wine (once you know how), it's also an excellent grape for eating. Countryside living never looked better.
Sitting in the heart of the idyllic village of Fressingfield, the picturesque area has practical amenities, including a local shop, two pubs, a medical centre and a primary school.
This property is currently on the market for £1,350,000 with Strutt & Parker.
