World of Interiors readers might recognise this Grade II-listed farmhouse close to the Suffolk coast – it has featured in the storied magazine, as well as books exploring the quintessential English farmhouse. And now it’s for sale.
Located in the village of Yoxford, opposite Cockfield Hall, the timber-framed Suffolk property is thought to date from 1592 and has been gently restored by its owners. They’ve peeled back 20th-century interventions to reveal the original structure in all its glory. Plasterboard partitions installed to create smaller rooms and straighten its quirky, crooked walls and ceilings have been removed, and original brick and flagstone floors revealed.
The key space is the kitchen, with its beamed ceilings and white-washed, wood-clad walls. An Aga oven offers a focal point for the space, with other period features inside the 1,100 sq ft dwelling including the original workbench and flooring – an uneven, textured combination of stone slabs, terracotta tiling, brick and English oak.
The primary bedroom meanwhile is accessed via a newel staircase and looks out onto the garden and field beyond, with a second bedroom (or study) located off the kitchen below.
Inigo is marketing the rustic Suffolk farmhouse for £545,000, which includes two outbuildings with planning permission to convert them into holiday accommodation.
