The Property

Hartpiece enjoys one of the finest locations in the area, set high on a ridge the property enjoys far reaching panoramic views across the Stour Valley. Situated on the edge of the small village of Lamarsh it is conveniently positioned between Bures and Sudbury, both of which have railway

stations linking to the mainline at Marks Tey.

Hartpiece is of Edwardian origins and has been

sympathetically extended and upgraded over time to create a wonderful home whilst retaining much of its character, most notably the large windows taking advantage of the superb views. The accommodation is both spacious and adaptable with a glorious triple-aspect drawing room, with

feature fireplace, dining room and sitting room with multi fuel burner. The kitchen/breakfast room is well equipped with Orwell pine units and a gas fired 4 oven ‘Aga’, electric oven and dishwasher.

On the first floor the two principal bedrooms both have large ensuite bathrooms, in addition there are two further bedrooms, family bathroom and wc.


The gardens at Hartpiece are a particular feature with extensive lawns, well-stocked herbaceous borders, a large Greenhouse and an individual stable. There are many mature specimen trees and shr ubs including a fine willow and the established hedges offer a high level of privacy. In one corner a well stocked orchard includes

plums, cooking and eating apples, pears and cherry. A 5-bar gate opens onto a wide brick paved drive which leads to the triple garage and workshop with twin automatic up and over doors.
