About this home

This magnificent Grade II listed farmhouse dating from the 17th century sits proudly within 500 acres of the beautiful Nether Hall Estate; comprising extensive parkland and grassland, grazed by a beef suckler herd; around 100 acres of woodland, lake and ponds; and productive arable land growing a variety of crops. You could lose yourself for days in this superb setting. Previous estate owners include the Pakenham/Lord Longford family in the 13th century, and the Greene family in the 19th century (who established the Greene King brewery in nearby Bury St Edmunds).


Once one of five farmhouses which served the estate during the 19th century, today this impressive, three-storey, timber framed building has been transformed into an exceptional holiday home with exquisite attention to detail at every turn. Expertly designed interiors by The Design Consultancy blend seamlessly with the property's abundance of characterful features. Guests can spread out or gather together and enjoy the seemingly endless reception rooms both inside and out. The light and airy drawing room with its roaring open fire, oak flooring from the estate woodland, and tasteful, comfortable furnishings boasts garden and parkland views; the charming dining room, with more estate views will more than do for those celebratory dinners in front of an electric wood burning stove for extra ambience. The kitchen will satisfy even the keenest of chefs with a large induction hob, double ovens, two dishwashers, wine fridges, Nespresso coffee machine, Belfast sink, breakfast bar and cosy underfloor heating; with the washing machine and tumble dryer neatly out of the way in the utility room along with double Belfast sinks, an American style fridge freezer and under-counter freezer (in addition to a large larder fridge in the kitchen). When it's time for some entertainment, mull over whether you want to hunker down in the snug and watch the 55 inch Smart television or head downstairs to the movie themed cinema room where you can immerse yourselves in a blockbuster via the wall mounted 75 inch 4k Smart television. The snug provides a comfy sofa bed and is located next to a spacious wet room, ideal if anyone in the group requires ground floor sleeping accommodation. If you need to catch up on some emails, a useful study area is provided along with a house safe.



Upstairs on the first floor are four of the seven wonderful bedrooms, where there will be little squabbling as each room has been furnished with Hypnos cashmere mattresses and luxurious goose feather and down bedding. All four bedrooms have a Smart television and their own stunning en-suite bath or shower rooms which have been beautifully designed with finishing touches, underfloor heating, fluffy towels and sumptuous toiletries. Climb the stairs to the second floor where the remaining three bedrooms and two bath/shower rooms are equally as impressive, although head space can be limited in some areas here.



Enjoy the outdoors in all weathers in The Retreat, a timber framed, undercover seating area complete with an open fire, which also acts as a link from the main house to The Greenhouse, a calming garden room. The Greenhouse, aptly named as it was built on the site of the original greenhouse, is an absolute joy and has been cleverly designed with a feature wall of greenery and mirrors, creating an orangery feel. Open up the sliding doors when the weather is mild, or slide them closed and let the heat from the

sunshine penetrate through the glazing and just enjoy. The Greenhouse also benefits from a walk-in shower/wet room with twin marble wash basins and beautiful curved shower area. On sunny days, the Vinehouse patio is the place to be, this lovely, large terrace sitting under an oak pergola invites you to enjoy an al-fresco lunch or just rest back on the sun-loungers and contemplate. Everyone will love The Pit Stop, an activities room where guests can make use of the gym equipment; and tournaments of table football await, along with a 50 inch Smart television and a drinks fridge for those post-match beers.


Take a wander down to the lake, with its jetty and small rowing boat, this is a magical spot with wildlife galore, or bring your rackets and enjoy a game of tennis on the all weather tennis court. The Farmhouse on the Nether Hall Estate is perfect for a special gathering of family and friends, and can also accommodate shooting parties.
