There are two acres of extensively planted formal gardens (sts) and a further fourteen acres of meadow (sts) with a created lake. The older part of the property is of massive oak timber frame construction, much of which has been revealed and the extension has been sympathetically done with the use of natural materials wherever possible. There is solid oak flooring, tiling and natural wood kitchen/breakfast room. The property is heated by oil fired central heating via radiators and the inglenook fireplace has been revealed to the main reception room. The accommodation is of a very flexible nature and can be used in a number of different ways. All bedrooms and bathrooms are accessible from the two stairways and the property could easily be used for dual generation occupation. There are good outbuildings with a double garage which has first floor accommodation.
The setting is very private with ornamental electric gates and a long driveway leading to the property yet it is not isolated and is set within a residential community in the village of Bressingham to the north of Diss. There is a primary school at Bressingham.
