A Grade II* listed farmhouse dating back to the 16th century has once again come up for sale in Brent Eleigh, Sudbury, for £1,275,000.

The historic property known as Corner Farmhouse, which features nine ornate star chimneys on the roof, as well as extensive timber detailing and a separate three-bedroom annexe in the former cattle byre, occupies a prominent, picturesque position overlooking the village green.

It was most recently listed for sale in 2019 and is widely regarded a Tudor masterpiece. It was originally two separate cottages, which were later reconfigured, and then restored, to create a substantial family home.

According to selling agents David Burr, the current owners have since completed further refurbishments, "ensuring the property continues to exhibit some of the finest possible examples of the character features shown within" while still offering modern and functional living space. 

Highlights include a formal drawing room, separate dining room and up to four further reception spaces, as well as a ground-floor cloakroom, scullery and a large, country-style kitchen/breakfast room with handmade oak units and a cream-coloured, four-oven Aga.

Four bedrooms can be found upstairs, including a master with fitted wardrobes and a Victorian-style roll-top bath set on a raised platform, plus two further bathrooms. A further room can also be accessed by an external staircase, and could be used as an additional bedroom or even as a playroom.

A separate three-bedroom annexe known as The Byre is connected to the main house by an oak-framed walkway and includes two reception rooms, a family bathroom and an oak kitchen. It has previously been run as a successful holiday let, but could be used as a home office, guest accommodation or even as a self-contained annexe for older relatives.
