From the agent: "This incredible, Grade II–listed, timber-framed Suffolk farmhouse is believed to mainly date from around 1592. The house, which is found in one half of the original farmhouse, has been lovingly restored by the current owners during their years of guardianship. To the rear is its own private garden and two handsome outbuildings, which have planning permission to convert into separate holiday accommodations. Well located in the pretty village of Yoxford, the house is a stone’s throw from the coast and the celebrated towns of Aldeburgh and Southwold."

A newly constructed wooden fence lines the yard to provide plenty of privacy.

Upon entry, an open-plan living area extends a warm welcome. "This room is incredibly unique, with brilliantly uneven, textured surfaces—from the beams in the ceiling to the wood-clad walls," notes the agent.

The corner kitchen comes with marble countertops and a large ceramic sink. 

Original flooring—featuring a combination of stone slabs, bricks, terra-cotta tiles, and oak planks—lines the lower level.

A freestanding, cast-iron soaking tub awaits upstairs near the main bedroom.

Outside, a brick terrace runs the length of the house, creating an idyllic spot for alfresco dining.
