Built in 1973 to an award winning design at that time, this unique detached family home offers scope and potential for improvement/remodelling and is ripe for extension (subject to the relevant planning permissions being approved by the Local Authority). The house is complemented by a splendid, private setting within established grounds of around 1.75 acres, in the desirable village of Stowlangtoft, providing excellent access to Bury St Edmunds and the main road networks.
