Kettlebaston is a delightful and much admired small village set on high ground in the lovely countryside of West Suffolk. It has an historic Parish Church, small Village Hall and contains an unusually high proportion of thatched period cottages, together with some later properties. The nearest main village is Monks Eleigh with its local shop/post office and gastro pub, and the village is an easy drive from Lavenham with further facilities and numerous restaurants/pubs and a doctor's surgery. The market towns of Sudbury, Hadleigh and the cathedral town of Bury St Edmunds, are almost equidistant, and are all within easy driving distance and providing multiple facilities. The house is in a remarkable location set just in front of the historic parish church, overlooking a pond and farmhouse opposite.
The property has been very carefully designed to blend in with the period properties surrounding it, making particular use of traditional materials such as red brick, rendering, black weatherboarding and clay tiled and slate roofing. The interior will be bespoke and fitted to a high standard and the opportunity is there, subject to the stage of construction, for a purchaser to have an input as to the kitchen units, bathroom fittings, tiling and so on. It might also be possible to reconfigure the house to have three bedrooms and two en-suites rather than four bedrooms and one en-suite as per the current plans.
