Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Entrance hall, cloakroom, sitting room, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room and utility room. Bedroom one with en-suite shower room, three further bedrooms and bathroom. Double garage and ample parking. Attractive gardens totalling approximately 0.51 acres. 

Location The Bridles gives a rare opportunity to purchase a family home with a large garden in an excellent position close to the centre of the popular and desirable village of Grundisburgh. The village benefits from a primary school, village store and excellent public house, The Dog. There are also playing fields, which have tennis courts.

Grundisburgh is ideally located for both the historic market town of Woodbridge, approximately 3 miles to the south-east, and the county town of Ipswich, some 6 miles to the south-west. Direct trains from Ipswich to London's Liverpool Street station take just over the hour. Woodbridge is best known locally for its picturesque riverside setting with marina and associated boat services. It is also highly regarded for its good choice of schooling in both state and private sectors, and offers a variety of shops, restaurants, a cinema, theatre and recreational facilities. The Heritage Coast lies within 12 miles with popular centres such as Orford, Aldeburgh, Thorpeness, Walberswick and Southwold. 

Description The Bridles is a detached, individually designed property built to a high standard specifically for our clients by their family firm of local builders, Charles Clarke and Sons in the mid 1980s. It is of brick outer skin and block interior skin construction with rendered elevations under a tiled roof. Externally there is an excellent double garage built to the same high standard as the house with ample parking space for several vehicles. There is also a lovely, mature garden that contains a variety of shrubs, trees, flowerbeds and vegetable beds. In all, the grounds extend to approximately 0.51 acres. The house itself has UPVC double glazing throughout, as well as an oil fired central heating system. On the ground floor is a spacious sitting room, a good-sized reception hall, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, utility room and cloakroom. On the first floor are four bedrooms, along with an en-suite shower room and a bathroom. The house also benefits from Free-sat connections to lounge, kitchen and two bedrooms. 

Overage It is not anticipated that Suffolk Coastal District Council will look favourably upon any application for further dwelling/s within the grounds of The Bridles in years to come. However, an overage clause will be added to the contract whereby if planning permission is achieved for any additional dwelling/s in the grounds within the next thirty years the vendor will receive 30% of the uplift in value. For the avoidance of doubt, please note that this does not affect the building of any extensions, annexes or outbuildings that are associated with The Bridles itself.
