Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Entrance porch, entrance hall, 21' sitting room, 29' kitchen/dining room, garden room, study, utility room, boot room and cloakroom. Master bedroom with en-suite shower room, three further bedrooms and a family bathroom. Attached single garage and large driveway. Gardens to the front and rear. No forward chain. 

Location Green Howe is located along Saxtead Road, on the outskirts of the popular and historic market town of Framlingham. Framlingham is best known locally for its fine medieval castle and good choice of schooling in both the state and private sectors. The property is within easy walking distance of the doctor's surgery, Thomas Mills High School, Framlingham College and Sir Robert Hitcham's Primary School. The town also benefits from an excellent variety of shops including a Co-operative supermarket, public houses and restaurants.

The popular coastal town of Aldeburgh and the Snape Maltings Concert Hall, home to the Aldeburgh Festival, are within easy reach, some eleven miles to the east. The A12, which lies just seven miles to the south, provides a direct link to Woodbridge, the county town of Ipswich, and beyond to London, Cambridge and the Midlands (via the A14). Direct and branch line rail services run to London's Liverpool Street Station, via Ipswich from Campsea Ash, which is situated just beyond Wickham Market. 

Description Green Howe was originally constructed in the 1960s, but over the years the property has been extended and reconfigured to create what is now a light and spacious family home in an enviable location on the outskirts of Framlingham.

In all the accommodation extends to over 2,000 square feet and benefits from two impressive principal reception rooms; the sitting room with large window overlooking the rear garden and the open plan kitchen/dining room. In recent years the current vendor has also undertaken a programme of refurbishment including replacing the majority of the floor coverings throughout, installing oak doors on the ground floor, replacing the family bathroom and cloakroom, and redecorating throughout. A Boot Room has also been created together with a Garden Room, which provides useful ancillary accommodation.

Outside, the driveway and parking area has been reconfigured and enlarged, the gardens taken in hand and much of the boundary fencing replaced. The property also benefits from delightful views to the rear, particularly from the first floor, over the adjoining agricultural land.
