Description Space abounds in this exceptional four bedroom extended bungalow with first floor studio/bedroom five.

The bungalow enjoys an idyllic semi-rural location largely surrounded by fields over which there are some lovely views and the opportunity to observe the abundance of wildlife.

All the bedrooms are generously proportioned and are described by the sellers as 'doubles'. The main focal point of the property is the luxurious 'live-in' kitchen which is L-shaped with kitchen, lounge and dining areas. This tends to be the room where everybody congregates and also has the added advantage of bi-folding glazed doors opening to the private rear garden. The remainder of the accommodation comprises: utility room, wet room, bathroom, first floor studio, attic bedroom five and living room which boasts an open fire set in a red brick fireplace.

Further benefits include sealed unit double glazing, well-presented décor, re-styled bathroom suite and oil central heating.

Outside the property is set back from the road standing fairly centrally in its plot which is largely surrounded by fields. To the front a brick pillared entrance opens to the block paved frontage providing plenty of vehicle parking. Within the grounds is a detached workshop/barn measuring approximately 29' x 8'10. To the rear of the property is a large patio/entertainments area, pergola positioned to catch the evening sun, kitchen garden and area laid to lawn. 

About the Area Ringshall is approximately four miles from Needham Market and six miles from Stowmarket, both of which have a railway station. Ringshall offers a primary school, Green Barn farm shop, a great network of footpaths and bridleways along with a village hall which tends to be the hub of the community. In the neighbouring village of Great Bricett there is also a popular village pub. 

Direction Leave Needham Market along the Barking Road B1078. Turn right at Ringshall into Lower Farm Road then almost immediately right again into Stowmarket Road. Continue along this road for approximately three quarters of a mile where the property will be found on the right hand side. 

Vendor´s Statement "We have lived happily in Bakers Corner for fifteen years and it has been a real family home. Our children have attended the local schools including the primary school which is approximately two thirds of a mile. We have particularly enjoyed the peacefulness, lovely views and interesting walks around the surrounding fields. From our garden we have been lucky enough to see a wonderful array of wildlife including deer, woodpeckers and owls. Our favourite room is undoubtedly the kitchen which we re-styled approximately two years ago. One of the best features are the glazed bi-folding doors looking out over the garden and fields beyond. In the summer we open these and it connects the house perfectly to the garden and is ideal for large family gatherings and summer barbeques. Close by is the village hall which provides a very active social hub for the community, whilst a few hundred yards further down the road is the Green Barn farm shop. We have always found it handy to have the market down of Needham only ten minutes down the road and have always made good use of the rail station. Having a large family parking has never been a problem as we have often parked up to eight cars on the block paving to the front. The barn has been a really useful workshop/store and place for the children to play their musical instruments without disturbing anyone. Now the children are leaving home it's time to down size and we wish the new owners lots of happiness in what we have found to be an amazing family home."
