THE LOCATION
White Street Green is a small hamlet just over a mile from the much favoured village of Boxford. It is right away from the main road and traffic and enjoys peace and quiet and contains a mixture of houses and cottages of all ages and a number of very substantial properties - an excellent location. Boxford itself provides local shops, a highly regarded primary school, a very active village hall and other community facilities. Within easy driving distance are the market towns of Sudbury and Hadleigh, and both Colchester and Ipswich are within easy reach, the former providing a very good commuter service through to London's Liverpool Street. Spring Lane is a no through road running gently down hill on the side of the box valley with a mixture of attractive houses and cottages. To one side of the property and to the rear is open meadowland.

THE PROPERTY
Hobbitt's Hall is a large individual detached bungalow built very much in traditional style with soft red bricks under a mellow clay pantiled roof, on the side of Beech Hill. It has been significantly upgraded and improved by the present owners and is now presented superbly throughout. There are uPVC wide gap double glazed windows, particularly large at the front to take advantage of the westerly views across the sweeping front lawn. There is an excellent air conditioned conservatory, plus uPVC fascias and rainwater goods for easy maintenance. The interior provides surprisingly large rooms, particularly bright and sunny and presented to a high standard of fittings and décor. There is an excellent fitted kitchen and the latest improvements include a superb new luxury en suite bathroom, new interior doors and built-in wardrobes. To the side is a large garage block providing a sizeable double garage, with newly installed full width electric double door, and a newly fitted laundry/utility room and separate boiler room. To the rear is a large suntrap terrace, which opens on to mature gardens, stocked with a wealth of plants, shrubs and trees, including twelve palms and many tropical varieties. At the front is an exceptionally large lawn and sweeping carriage drive providing a wonderful approach and ample parking. There is oil fired central heating and in the sitting room a newly installed Calor gas log effect living flame fire. The house provides a beautiful home with peace and tranquillity, and yet is within very easy reach of Sudbury, Colchester, Ipswich and the commuter corridors.
