Dating back to the early 16th century, the Grade II listed property boasts picturesque views over the Suffolk countryside as well as an extensive plot of land and a separate two-storey office.

According to selling agents Fine & Country, which is marketing the property at a guide price of £550,000, the present owners have taken excellent care of the home over the last 36 years and love the area so much, in fact, that they are building their own new home on the plot next door.

Despite its age, the property has been carefully updated and offers a harmonious blend of old and contemporary styles, with stylish living space accented by timber beams and rustic character features.

There are two reception rooms on the ground floor, as well as a dining room, kitchen, study and shower room.

The surprisingly contemporary kitchen is a real highlight, featuring polished black porcelain tiles on the floor and a hi-tech range of modern appliances, including an AEG induction hob, built-in Zanussi microwave and a Bosch oven. There is also a built-in freezer under the counter, as well as a dishwasher, washing machine and water softener, plus plenty of space for a fridge freezer and lots of room for storage.

On the first floor, the property offers four bedrooms and a family bathroom with bath and shower over.

The two-storey office outside offers plenty of potential for new owners. It includes a stable door at the front with a metal spiral staircase leading upstairs, and is fully connected to a phone line and power, as well as feature lighting and a security alarm. French doors lead out and onto a patio.

The Old Crown also boasts an outdoor garden store and a double garage as well as a brick driveway and landscaped gardens.
