Kings House is a magnificent five-bedroom residence nestled in an idyllic setting on the outskirts of Gestingthorpe, near the historic village of Castle Hedingham, straddling the Essex/Suffolk border. Offering approximately 2,950 sq ft of bright, versatile living space, this property includes a detached one-bedroom annexe, making it ideal for extended family living or guests.

Constructed in 1988, Kings House boasts exceptional accommodation throughout. The ground floor offers a practical and welcoming layout. Upon entry, the entrance lobby leads to a reception hall with a striking turning staircase. This level includes a study and a generous lounge that flows into a beautiful oak-framed garden/family room. This space, with its cast iron log-burning stove and glazed wall, opens directly to the garden. The room also connects seamlessly to the dining room and modern kitchen, equipped with light-colored units, work surfaces, and a central breakfast bar. Additional storage is provided in the utility room. A cloakroom and access to the double garage completes the ground floor.

Five spacious bedrooms can be found on the first floor, all accessed via a stunning open landing. The modern family bathroom serves the household, while two of the bedrooms feature en suite shower rooms with high-pressure water systems. The principal bedroom, located at the front of the house, includes a range of fitted wardrobes. Three bedrooms enjoy picturesque westerly views over the garden and adjacent farmland.

The detached annexe, a short distance from the main house, features an open-plan reception/kitchen area with a log burner, a double bedroom, and a shower room. The annexe is perfect for guests or multigenerational living, complemented by a private courtyard garden.

Kings House is set back from the road and accessed via electrically-operated wrought iron gates, leading to a spacious driveway and an integral double garage. The west-facing garden features a paved terrace, a lawn, a path to the annexe, and a summerhouse. The garden, predominantly lawn, extends to the rear, offering direct views of open farmland.

Located on the outskirts of Gestingthorpe, Kings House is near St Mary the Virgin Church and The Pheasant public house, with access to numerous countryside footpaths. The property is equidistant from Halstead in Essex and Sudbury in Suffolk, with the nearby village of Castle Hedingham offering local amenities including pubs, a restaurant, and a village shop.
