The House
The house has been significantly extended and completely refurbished creating a contemporary and stylish home. It provides 2200 square foot (204 sqM) of living space, and features a large open-plan kitchen/dining/living area making the most of the garden which is accessible via bi-folding patio doors.

The kitchen has an extensive range of high gloss units all with soft close doors and drawers plus scratch and stain resistant 'glistening granite' surfaces. Fitted appliances include an integral Siemans dishwasher double oven and grill, an AEG halogen hob with extractor and an integral fridge freezer.

There is a separate lounge to the front of the house, which could be used as a formal sitting room, library or snug, and opposite is an additional separate room which could be used as a fifth bedroom, study or playroom.

There is a separate utility room including a washing machine, tumble dryer, and contained oil-fired boiler. This room also contains the operations for the electrics, heating and water filtration system. There is also a side door with access to the garden.

The large entrance hallway, WC and the open plan family space all benefit from underfloor heating and there is also an alarm system in place at the property.

Upstairs there are four double bedrooms, all of good size. The master bedroom enjoys impressive rural views and has access to an en-suite shower room including a double width soft closing shower, and a low level WC and wash basin with storage.

The family bathroom is made up of a white suite, including a bath with an over shower, basin with storage and WC. The two front rooms at the house (one being the master) have large bay windows enjoying the working farm opposite.

The driveway is accessed via a five bar gate leading directly on to a graveled driveway with turning and parking space for numerous vehicles. The driveway continues down the left hand side of the house to a newly constructed Cart Lodge.

Cart Lodge
This is an impressive addition to the house. It includes a conventional open-fronted cart lodge arrangement which can accommodate two family cars. Behind this is a secure storage room which has double doors and stairs that lead to an upstairs boarded and insulated storage area. This room measures 30 feet and already has two velux windows; as it stands it could be used as a work from home office/play space but (subject to planning permission) it could be combined with the storage room downstairs to create a very usable annex/guest suite. There is electricity and water leading to the cart lodge.

Rear Garden
The significant rear garden measures over 500 feet and is all laid to lawn. There is a vegetable patch to the side, and a ride on lawn mower is included in the sale.

The house is situated down the quiet Pound Lane which road leads from the A12 to the village of Capel St Mary, with little through traffic. Capel is a small village six miles south west of Ipswich and seven miles north west of Manningtree, both with direct links to London Liverpool Street.

Capel's facilities include a cooperative store, bakers, newsagents, post office, doctor’s surgery and pharmacy. Capel has a 'good' rated primary school and is within catchments for East Bergholt Secondary school, also with a ‘good’ rating.

Points to Note
There is a septic tank accessible from the front drive and the oil tank can be found hidden down the right hand side of the house. There is a covered well at the property which provides a private and low-cost water supply to the house. Please note that the streetview representation of this property shows the house prior to its extension and renovation. EPC rating D
