STYLISHLY EXTENDED EDGE OF VILLAGE HOUSE SET IN UNDULATING GROUNDS
Falkenham House is situated on the edge of the village of Falkenham in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty offering views of the River Deben. It has a secluded setting and yet has easy access onto the A14 with its excellent communications. The location is perfect for the sailing enthusiast to take advantage of Suffolk's Heritage Coastline and there are several marinas including Levington, Woolverstone, Waldringfield and Woodbridge within easy reach as well as golf courses at Woodbridge and Felixstowe Ferry. There are a good range of both state and private schools in the area which are both in close proximity to the house. The charming and sought after market town of Woodbridge provides excellent shopping facilities. Ipswich, the county town of Suffolk, has a much wider range of facilities and the commuter can take advantage of direct line services from Ipswich to London's Liverpool Street Station.
Falkenham House is originally believed to date from the early 18th century. The current owners have extended and modernised the house to a very high standard and it now benefits from bespoke fittings, solid oak and natural stone flooring throughout. The property is rendered with weather boarded elevations under a pan tile roof. The versatile, spacious and light accommodation is laid out over two floors with the ground floor comprising traditional reception rooms to the front with open fireplaces.

Skylights flood the room which is also enhanced by three sets of French doors which open out on to the elevated rear terrace. The extension provides a half panelled dining room with four sets of French doors also leading out onto the terrace. The Debenvale fitted utility room is off the dining room as is a separate staircase rising to a sitting room/bedroom 5. The main staircase rises to the first floor giving access to the vaulted
master bedroom with Juliet balcony and en suite shower room. There are a further three double bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room and Juliet balcony as well as a vaulted family bathroom with an Albion roll top bath.
