Stunning Grade II* listed Georgian country house designed by the celebrated architect Decimus Burton set on a private 5000 acre estate in Suffolk.
As you wind up the serpentine drive, over the ornamental bridge and past the lake and first see the honey coloured stone façade of Sibton Park is revealed, you know you are in for a special experience. The manor, built in 1827 by Robert Sayer, once Sheriff of Suffolk, with designs by the celebrated architect Decimus Burton, has giant Ionic pillars creating a dramatic portico entrance. Once inside this wonderful house unfolds before you. With large, elegant Georgian proportions throughout, the drawing room with its listed Chinese wallpaper, the bright morning room and formal dining room all create spaces that welcome and embrace guests. Open fires, fine antique furniture and chandeliers sit alongside the subtle integration of the most up to date technology. The dining room is a grand affair perfect for celebrations and bringing friends and family together. For more informal dining, there is the large kitchen with wood-burner, Aga and deer-antler chandeliers or head downstairs to dine under candlelight in the vaulted corridor from where you will also find the gym, private cinema and games room. For outside dining under expansive skies, there’s the private courtyard or the large terrace overlooking parkland, grazing livestock and the lake beyond. Upstairs, the twelve bedrooms with have achingly comfortable Hypnos beds, eclectic furnishings and far-reaching views through large sash windows. Eleven en suite marble-floored bathrooms have underfloor heating, luxurious fittings and most have roll-top baths as well as powerful showers with endless piping-hot water. Outside, enjoy BBQs in the private courtyard, explore the estate on Pashley bicycles or hold your own tournament on the estate’s tennis court. Try your hand at paddle boarding or rowing on the serpentine lake, learn more about the nature that calls Wilderness Reserve home with one of our estate rangers or practice your shot with world-class clay instructors. Wilderness Reserve is nestled in 5,000 acres across three river valleys in the county boasting some of the cleanest air in England, just a short drive from Suffolk’s celebrated heritage coast. Here, discover one of England’s finest piers at Southwold, enjoy famous fish & chips in Aldeburgh or make your own gin at the Adnams Brewery.
