Property of the Day: Sheepcote Farm, Suffolk
THE PROPERTY: Sheepcote Farm is a beautiful Grade II-listed property with 3.25 acres of land, believed to date back to 1770 or earlier. It makes for an exceptional family home.
THE LOCATION: Set at the end of a long drive yet within walking distance of a riverside pub and restaurant, the property is private but well-connected. Positioned in the Stour Valley on the Essex/Suffolk borders, the house enjoys an elevated location that offers beautiful views of the surrounding area. Sheepcote Farm lies just 15 miles from Colchester.
THE INTERIOR: The main house is full of impressive period features including exposed timbers and floorboards, fireplaces and vaulted ceilings, and has five bedrooms and two bathrooms.
WHY WE LOVE IT: The multiple farm buildings make for a wonderfully spacious living environment. Sheepcote Cottage offers two further bedrooms and an external utility room; the Granary provides studio accommodation and a bedroom; and two traditional barns, a heated swimming pool and a hard tennis court complete the sizeable set-up.
