Moated Country House
The Chantry is a classic and elegantly appointed partially moated 16th Century Grade II Listed country house, set in tranquil gardens and grounds of about 81⁄2 acres in a secluded rural setting. It’s located next door to the impressive church of St Lawrence in the heart of the rural hamlet of Brundish, and is a handsome five bedroom property with a rendered and colour washed façade.
The house features well laid out accommodation with a series of light, well-proportioned and beautifully presented principal reception rooms and bedrooms. These include a drawing room with views and French doors to the garden, a central dining room, plus a large sitting room open plan to the bespoke kitchen, complete with AGA and adjoining breakfast room. Beyond, the service rooms include a utility/boot room, laundry, butler’s pantry and study.
On the first floor the dual aspect master bedroom benefits from a large dressing room, along with his and hers bath and shower rooms. There are a further two double bedrooms and two bathrooms on this floor. Two staircases rise to the second floor, independently accessing two further double bedrooms, one of which benefits from a large landing/nursery bedroom and both of which have en-suite shower rooms, interconnected through a secret door. All bedrooms enjoy views either across the gardens or towards the church.
The property enjoys a delightfully secluded and tranquil setting, sitting in 41⁄2 acres of partially moated landscaped gardens, including a variety of well-kept lawns with colourful herbaceous borders, beautiful parterre, croquet lawn, southeast facing breakfast terrace adjacent to the moat, mediaeval fish ponds, kitchen garden, orchard and enclosed swimming pool garden. Beyond lies a four acre paddock with an open fronted machinery store.
