Is an elegant four bedroom equestrian detached Georgian family home set well back from the street scene, down a long driveway and benefiting from established formal gardens and three acres of paddocks with associated stabling and outbuildings, ideally located for access to Bury St. Edmunds, Newmarket and Cambridge SELLER'S INSIGHT
We originally purchased the property in the 1990's as our youngest son was doing an apprenticeship in Newmarket and the cost of full livery in London was increasing rapidly. We viewed a number of properties and Bush House was perfect for us. It ticked every box and more and we have enjoyed minute of our time here. The location is ideal for access to Bury St. Edmunds, Newmarket and Cambridge and the road links makes family in London easily reachable. I will miss the privacy and peacefulness, looking out and seeing my horse and all of the happy memories of my children on their horses. I love the conservatory addition. It is used all year round! The village is extremely friendly and I will truly miss my neighbours but with the house and grounds being so large, it is now time for me to downsize to something manageable and to let a new family make their happy memories here.
