Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Hallway, kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, dining room, sitting room/library, drawing room and study. Four bedrooms and three bath/shower rooms. Beautiful mature gardens and grounds extending to approximately an acre. 

Location The Chestnuts has the best of both worlds with its stunning views over the garden and open countryside, yet at the same time being within walking distance of the town centre and all it has to offer. Waitrose and Tesco supermarkets are just along the road, and the High Street offers cafes, businesses and all day to day shopping facilities. Again, in walking distance is the railway station, which has a regular train service to London's Liverpool Street Station via Ipswich.

To the east lies the Suffolk Heritage Coast with the popular centres including Aldeburgh, Thorpeness, Walberswick, Southwold and Orford. The renowned Snape Maltings Concert Hall, home of the Aldeburgh Festival is about 3 miles to the south and the county town of Ipswich lies under 22 miles to the south-west. 

Description The Chestnuts was built during the 1970s and is of traditional brick construction under a pantiled roof. It offers large, well proportioned rooms and extends to some 2,700 sq ft. A later extension added an annexe to the bungalow comprising a bedroom, sitting room and kitchen. More recently this has been converted to provide further accommodation to the main bungalow, but reversion to the former layout would allow for dual family occupation.

The bungalow enjoys wonderful views to the west and south over its gardens and neighbouring meadowland. Great care has been taken to maintain the attractive mature gardens and grounds extending to approximately an acre.
