Barton Grange - Substantial period home surrounded by farmland
- Credit: Archant
Barton Grange today is a substantial period house with a large range of outbuildings, yet convenient for Bury St Edmunds town centre.
It is tucked away in its own grounds, and partly surrounded by farmland, but is only a mile from the centre of the market town.
It is a rural setting yet close to town.
Barton Grange was originally built as a farmhouse in 1842 to the Rougham Estate.
There were later Victorian additions to the house, in 1895, resulting in a pleasant mix of Georgian grey brick and later red brick walls under a predominantly slate tiled roof.
It provides plenty of accommodation for a larger family, arranged over two floors, within the elegant proportions of the original building.
There is a reception hall, a cloakroom, a family room with exposed floorboards and a fireplace housing an original Rayburn and a large, double aspect dining hall has a staircase leading up to the first floor.

There is also an attractive sitting room with a bay window to the front. It also has an open fire.
In addition there is a good sized study and a snug, along with a recently updated garden room which has brick flooring, and the family-sized kitchen.
There is also an original, timber-framed outbuilding, which could be further used as a games room if required..
On the first floor there is a large landing area, leading to six bedrooms, although bedroom five is accessed from bedroom six.
The master bedroom has a large dressing area and an en suite bathroom.
Outside the property is set back in its grounds, which extend to approximately 1.25 acres, with a carriage driveway leading to a large range of outbuildings, incorporating the former stable block and coachhouse.
While they are currently used for storage, and a fuel store, subject to planning permission, they could be brought into use as ancillary accommodation or perhaps a guest annexe, with some building work.
The grounds themselves are largely mature, lawned gardens and bordered by a variety of mature trees and shrubs.
