Full description

Crossland is a most agreeable home that has been improved by the current vendors. The bespoke large double glazed windows allow a vast amount of light into the property and the rear extension further enhances the accommodation on offer. As mentioned below planning permission has been granted to extend the property on to the first floor. This would create a fine home with exceptional commodious accommodation, situated in a wonderful setting with the most glorious of views to the front across delightful countryside..

Accommodation - The accommodation in brief comprises entrance hall with door to sitting room (22'3" x 16'7" max) a light and bright room with a large bespoke window to the front aspect and a second window to the side aspect glazed French doors lead to the kitchen breakfast room (18'2" x 14'5"). The breakfast area is versatile in its use and is finished with wood effect flooring, side window and french doors leading to the rear terrace. The open plan kitchen area is fitted with an attractive range of cream floor and wall units complimented by wood design roll edge work-surfaces and tiled flooring. The room has been well-designed for appliance space and finished with a breakfast bar. The utility offers further storage and appliance space. An opening leads to the dining room (10'82 x 9'2") which could also be used as a study, library etc. and conveniently a door gives access back to the entrance hall. The property is currently configured to offer four bedrooms however as previously mentioned could be extended to offer first floor accommodation. A wonderful entrance hall and staircase to this area would include the floor area of the smaller fourth bedroom with the house then offering six double bedrooms, en-suite to master bedroom and a family bathroom on both the ground (already in situation) and first floors. The first floor plan on the particulars is the proposed first floor accommodation.

Outside - The property is situated on a plot in excess of 1/4 of an acre and is accessed via two wooden five bar gates leading to the block-paved driveway which provides off-road parking for several vehicles and which in turn leads to a single garage with up and over door and which houses the oil fired boiler. The remainder of the front garden is laid to lawn and partially enclosed by mature hedging. The block-paving continues to the front of the property and the area is interspersed with mature beds, conifers and shingle. Side pedestrian access leads both sides of the property and to the rear garden. The property benefits from a deceptively spacious rear garden which is mainly laid to lawn with a small ornamental fish pond, oil tank, garden shed offering further useful storage and with the rear terrace being an ideal area for outdoor eating and entertaining. The rear garden faces predominately south and is fully enclosed by fencing and mature hedges with a small wall to the rear offering views across the neighbouring paddocks.

It is located on the Essex/Suffolk borders and the attractive villages of Clare and Lavenham are also easily accessible.
