Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Hallway, cloakroom, sitting room, dining room, kitchen and study. Three first floor bedrooms, en-suite shower room and family bathroom. Carport and garage. Low maintenance private grounds of over an acre. 

Location Pightle is located in a lovely position, centrally within its grounds, at The Green, Saxtead. The house is approximately 1½ miles from the attractive and well known market town of Framlingham, which offers a comprehensive range of everyday shopping, educational and recreational facilities. Saxtead Green benefits from a pub, The Old Mill House, and the distinctive post mill which is open to the public through English Heritage. The Suffolk Heritage Coast, Woodbridge and Ipswich are all within short drives offering the concert hall at Snape Maltings, RSPB Minsmere, beaches at Southwold, Walberswick, Thropeness and Aldeburgh, and ample opportunities for sailing and golf. Ipswich is about 16 miles to the south-west and here there are direct trains to London's Liverpool Street station scheduled to take just over an hour. 

Description Pightle was constructed in 1965 by Reades of Aldeburgh. As with many houses of the era it offers large windows which take full advantage of the outlooks over the garden. The property offers practical living accommodation with a spacious sitting room, dining room, recently re-fitted kitchen, study and cloakroom. On the first floor are three bedrooms, an en-suite shower room and a bathroom. The house has been very well maintained, but it is likely that someone will wish to renew the shower/bathroom facilities. The property offers huge scope to be substantially extended and generally altered in terms of appearance. It is situated centrally within its own grounds of 1.1 acres.
