SPACIOUS FAMILY HOME WITH STUNNING GARDENS About 1.16 acres (6 acres of grazing available separately)

Location

Situated on the edge of the village, The Lodge is set well back from the road in a secluded setting. The house is within easy reach of Ipswich, the county town of Suffolk which has a wide range of shopping, recreational and leisure facilities. There are a large number of educational establishments within the town, both in the private and state sectors.

There is also easy access to both the A14 and A12 trunk roads giving easy access to London and the major motorway network beyond. The commuter can benefit from regular InterCity services from Ipswich to London's Liverpool Street with the journey taking approximately 65 minutes.

Description

The Lodge was built in the 1964 in a farmhouse style and has been considerably improved over the years including an impressive extension in 1998 providing extensive and light filled accommodation. It is constructed predominantly from brick elevations, part of which are rendered, under pitched tiled roofs. The property is presented to a high standard throughout and has numerous internal features including wooden floors, Andersen windows and French doors, many with fitted, removable insect screens and some attractive fireplaces. The Lodge is wonderfully positioned adjacent to and overlooking St Marys Church with some superb far reaching views beyond. The ground floor accommodation includes a spacious entrance hall, which opens into a large music room. There is a drawing room in the heart of the house which opens through to the dining room. A study has sliding doors through to a sitting room with large windows affording stunning views of the garden and gives access to the terrace. The kitchen/breakfast room is well equipped with numerous base units, Fired Earth terracotta floor tiles and an Aga. The kitchen has direct access through to the Amdega cedar conservatory which opens out to the gardens. The utility room is off the kitchen with a further door to a rear hall and to the outside enclosed terrace. The first floor is reached via two staircases to either end of the house which both lead onto large landings. There are 5 large bedrooms with a dressing room off the master bedroom and 4 bath/shower rooms. The property is also fitted with an ADT fire and entrance alarm system.

OUTSIDE

The Lodge is approached through a shared entrance off the road and then turns onto a private gravel drive which continues to a parking sweep fronting the house with raised circular bed. There is a triple garage (25' x 18'6") to one side of the parking area with recently installed double steel sectional doors. Two are electric and the third door is key operated. There is power and light connected with work bench area to rear, overhead storage and windows to rear log store, kitchen patio and dog run. The established gardens lie predominantly to the south and west of the house and are largely laid to lawn, with a grass tennis court and an Amdega cedar summer house with power connected. Interspersed throughout the garden are flower and herbaceous beds as well as mature plants and trees. Yew hedging and iron post and rail park fencing surrounds many areas of the garden, along with mainly evergreen hedging along the boundary which offer a high degree of privacy and seclusion.

Beyond the formal garden lies an orchard with a vegetable garden with greenhouse with automatic watering system. A radio controlled 'dog fence' cable is buried at all un-gated exit points on the grounds.

A further area of grazing land, amounting to 6 acres, lies on the other side of the road and is available by separate negotiation.

Square Footage: 4,715 sq ft
Acreage: 1.2 Acres
