The property, which is on the market for £1.5million, comes with a range of outbuildings and a barn which has planning consent for conversion into a four-bedroom home or additional accommodation for guests.

Burstall Hall dates back to the 15th Century, as a traditional Suffolk farmhouse, although it is not listed.

It has significantly extended over time, with later additions during the 18th and 19th Centuries, increasing the size and range of accommodation.

There is a welcoming entrance hall that leads on to a formal drawing room, a dining room and a study, all with feature open fireplaces.

The garden room, added in 2008, leads off the drawing room and provides a wonderful, vaulted entertaining space.

There is also a kitchen/breakfast room with a larder, a gun room, utility, a cloakroom and a family snug with a woodburning stove, all on the ground floor.

Burstall Hall has wonderfully mature gardens that are primarily laid to lawn, with a west facing terrace which is a sun trap.

Part of the original moat, running around the north-west side of the grounds is now an attractive pond and water feature.

The property is set back from the main road and a quiet lane leads on to a long private driveway and on to a circular, in-and-out driveway.

The impressive formal gardens surround the main house.

Adjacent to the house is a hard standing area and a number of brick-built stores, with a detached double cartlodge with a home office/studio above.

To the rear of the formal garden is a private and secluded meadow that extends to approximately five acres and is perfectly suited for use as paddocks for an equestrian enthusiast or alternatively as fields for a smallholding.

In addition the barn has potential for flexible use.

There is a secondary drive to the hard-standing yard.

The barn could form an annexe for inter-generational use or perhaps as a holiday let or rental property, after conversion.

Burstall Hall is on the market with Strutt and Parker with a guide price of £1.5m.
