A seven-bedroom property containing a Tudor cottage and a luxury private pool house has come up for sale on the outskirts of Monks Eleigh at a guide price of £1.6m.

Selling agents Jackson-Stops describe the Grade II* listed home in Swingleton Green as a "most elegant and generously proportioned Georgian-fronted farmhouse". It adjoins a 16th century cottage, believed to have been home to a Tudor wool merchant, and comes with a range of outbuildings and land.

The house boasts a wonderful selection of period details, featuring fine fireplaces, high ceilings and exposed timbers in the cottage, including a fabulous exposed crown post – a type of impressive roof beam – in the vaulted bedroom.

The kitchen is particularly well-sized and includes an extensive range of base and wall units, made from solid wood, as well as granite work surfaces, a butler sink and a four-oven Aga. 
It leads into the day room which is light and airy and fully glazed to the rear and side, offering lovely views over the gardens and grounds, as well as garden access through a set of double doors.

The 16th century, timber-framed cottage offers fantastic self-contained annexe-style accommodation and is accessed on the ground floor. It has a well-fitted kitchen area, plus sitting room, bathroom and bedroom over, and enjoys access to the cottage garden.
