A modern and very well appointed DETACHED FAMILY HOUSE built a few years ago to a high specification. The property offers well planned and well proportioned, light and airy accommodation in a pleasant village location overlooking open farmland on the South Western outskirts of Ipswich.

The house offers excellent family accommodation with a lovely sitting room overlooking the rear garden, a large open plan kitchen/diner with a well equipped fitted kitchen, utility room, 4 good sized bedrooms (2 with en-suite facilities) and a large family bathroom.
