Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A handsome and extended semi detached cottage with a mansard roof, with stunning interior and many fine period features. Situated in this idyllic semi rural location with a very large extensive plot!

The property has been upheld to an extremely high standard by the present sellers and offers excellent size family accommodation.

Internally there is a large entrance storm porch, leading to entrance hallway, impressive dining room - 14'8 x 14'6 with a large brick inglenook fireplace with wood burner, modern fitted country style kitchen - 20'3 x 7'4, separate study reception room - 14'6 x 10'6 and an inviting lounge - 17'6 narrowing to 13'3 x 14'7 with a large redbrick inglenook fireplace with multi fuel burner.
On the first floor there is a galleried landing, modern fitted family bathroom, bedroom 1 - 11'5 x 10'1 with fitted wardrobes and contemporary fitted en-suite shower room. Bedroom 2 - 14'5 x 8'4, bedroom 3 - 12'2 x 7'8 with built in wardrobes.
There are period beams and ledge and brace doors throughout.

The original building we understand dates back to the 18 hundreds and the large extension was constructed in the mid 80's.
There is a large office work space and summer house to remain in the rear garden and also enjoys a good size driveway providing off street parking for vehicles.

In our opinion there is further room to extend subject to planning and the locality provides excellent access to B.T's Adastral Park, Suffolk Constabulary Head Quarters, Ipswich Hospital and both Northgate High and Kesgrave High schools.

We would strongly advise the earliest of internal viewings to appreciate this fine family home!
