A Grade II listed farmhouse in Lawshall, near Bury St Edmunds, is up for sale for £1.5 million. 

Hanningfields Farmhouse is a 16th to 17th century timber-frame and plaster detached property, which was refronted in the late 18th or early 19th century in yellow brick, incorporating sash windows and a Tuscan portico. 

The six-bedroom farmhouse boasts a range of period features, including a central chimney stack with a 16th to 17th century hearth. 

Today, the house offers substantial family accommodation – so much so that the rear wing is currently being used as a self-contained cottage. 

The property, which has been in the current owner’s family for recent generations, has “fabulous potential for refurbishment” according to selling agent Carter Jonas.

The village is just six miles from the further amenities of Bury St Edmunds and seven miles from the pretty villages of Long Melford and Lavenham.
