Maiden Hall is a Grade II listed, late 17th century detached, thatched home and is a former hall house that we understand was two properties and was then converted back into one dwelling. The property has lots of history and some of this is highlighted in the original pargetting and of particular note is the clever late 20th century pargetting in high relief with various figures.
There are many original features which add to the charm of this home. In the drawing room there is a fine deep inglenook fireplace with heavy bressumer beam and exposed brickwork as well as a lovely old oriel window to rear, probably a 20th century introduction from another house. The oak flooring runs through into the dining room which has a latch door allowing access to the additional staircase to the first floor. French doors gives access to the terrace and rear garden beyond.
The gardens are a delight as the current owners are keen gardeners and have invested a lot of time to develop a beautiful array of flower beds stocked with a wide selection of traditional shrubs and plants.
Maiden Hall is accessed through a five bar gate providing access to the parking area and garage.
The front garden is laid to lawn with mature trees, well stocked beds and a pretty pond with traditional pond plants.
To the rear the gardens overlook open farmland and the village beyond. It has a large old stone terraced area retained by intricate cast iron railings which lead to a formal lawn with flower beds. Interesting features in the garden include pretty walls, large urns and a winding path providing a delightful walk way to the foot of the garden. A further terrace area is bordered by a fabulous 'crinkle crankle' wall with seating area
Maiden Hall is set behind a mature natural hedge and is located on the edge of the beautiful Suffolk village of Felsham, and sits in delightful gardens backing onto adjacent farmland. Felsham has good local amenities which include a Post Office/Stores, Public House, Parish Church and garage.
