Full description

This attractive and individual detached spacious home was designed by renowned local architect, Mr James Blackie. The house is believed to date from the 1970's and has retained the characteristics of a property from that era. The house provides interesting accommodation which is versatile in its use, and has been well-maintained by the current owners providing a homely and comfortable family home. The property benefits from UPVC double glazing and oil fired central heating and sits in beautiful grounds approaching one third of an acre (subject to survey) affording a high degree of privacy, yet still being conveniently located close to the fine array of amenities that the village has to offer.

Accommodation - The accommodation, in brief, comprises UPVC front door with glazed window to the side, leading to the spacious entrance hall. The area gives access to all principal rooms, and has stairs rising to the first floor, exposed brickwork, coat cupboard, parquet flooring and coat hooks. The dining room (14'1 x 13'2) is a light and bright room with walk-in bay window and window to side aspect. The kitchen breakfast room (18'8 x 12') is fitted with an excellent range of handmade units, finished in Farrow and Ball Shaded White and complemented by wooden work surfaces, further enhanced by the Belfast sink and tiled flooring. Built in appliances include a range cooker, dishwasher, fridge and microwave. There is also plumbing for a washing machine and a further space for a freezer in the utility area of the kitchen. The excellent shelved pantry provides further useful storage and houses the oil boiler. A door leads to side lobby and to the side garden. From the hall, steps lead down to the sitting room (24'6 x 17'5), a charming room with great ceiling height, windows to all aspects and French doors leading to the rear terrace. The feature brick fire place and chimney breast, inset with a wood burning stove, is a wonderful focal point of the room. The generous study (10'4 x 7'7) is accessed from this room. Completing the ground floor accommodation is the cloakroom.

The first floor accommodation is versatile in its use, and the galleried landing, with open balcony, is spacious and has a window overlooking the front garden. The master bedroom (13'5 x 13'3) is fitted with a range of bedroom furniture, with a door leading to the fifth bedroom
ursery/dressing room (12' x 8') and then in turn to the well-presented en-suite. The en-suite is fitted with walk in shower unit, vanity sink unit and low level wc. The guest bedroom, with Juliette balcony, also benefits from a luxurious en-suite with roll top bath. There are a further two bedrooms (10'10 x 8' and 10'4 x 7'9) with one benefitting from built in wardrobes. A family bathroom and separate wc serve these rooms.

Outside - The beautiful gardens are a fine attribute of the property and extend to a third of an acre (subject to survey); they offer a beautiful, private and tranquil setting. There are large expanses of lawn interspersed with beautiful flowerbeds and edged with mature trees and further beds. To one side of the property is a well-tended vegetable plot, a variety of fruit bushes, greenhouse and potting shed. A limestone graveled area abuts this and then continues along the rear of the property, passing numerous rose bushes and flowers, currently offering the most divine scents, through the wooden pergola, and then to steps which lead down onto the principal garden area. The main terrace, ideal for alfresco dining and entertaining, adjoins the property with further discreet seating areas well positioned in the garden. The flint and brick walls further enhance the appeal of the garden, which also benefits from a detached double garage with power and lighting, and off road parking.

Situation - Glemsford is situated between the popular villages of Long Melford and Clare. The village has a thriving community and a wide range of amenities including primary school, village stores and Post Office, general stores, public houses, doctors surgery and a number of recreational options. Glemsford is a village surrounded by open countryside yet is still only about 7 miles from Sudbury, which offers excellent rail links to London.
