A spacious early Victorian family home incorporating a 2 bedroom cottage.

Situated just outside the popular market town of Halesworth, Mells Lodge sits at the brow of a hill with views across neighbouring countryside and down towards the town. Set over two floors, the house was built in the early Victorian times with later additions. Light-filled rooms provide period features, with large sash windows offering ample natural light, along with open fireplaces and high ceilings.

Offering flexible accommodation throughout, the property is a well-proportioned country home with space ideal for modern-day living. Steps leading up to the front door, the welcoming reception hall leads through into the majority of the ground floor accommodation, comprising; a large kitchen/breakfast room which benefits from an Aga, pantry and utility room offering additional storage, as well as access to a secondary staircase leading up to the first floor. Three beautifully proportioned formal reception rooms, along with study, conservatory, boot room and cloakroom give an ideal space for relaxing, dining or entertaining, and offer fabulous views of the gardens. To the first floor, a spacious landing gives access to the principal bedroom with a dressing room and en suite, along with 4 further bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a cloakroom.

The cottage has its own separate entrance, but is also connected to the main house via a door in the kitchen, making it an ideal guest wing if required. Inside, a hall opens out to the living room, kitchen and bathroom, with two bedrooms; one on the first floor.
