About The Property
The House was built in 1898 and provides family accommodation spread over two floors with an additional benefit of an extremely useful cellar. It is understood that the original drawings of the house showed three further bedrooms on the second floor although this was never carried out. The access to the loft from the box room on the landing of the first floor suggests that there would be considerable scope for additional accommodation subject to the necessary consents. We are advised by the vendors that the loft is fully insulated with quilt to the full depth of the 9'' joists.
The house is full of character throughout with many original Victorian features such as the cornices and picture rails as well as the beautiful fireplaces including a marble fireplace in the sitting room; another ornate fire surround in the dining room and a most pretty cast iron fireplace in the morning room. There is also a lovely stained glass panel in the front door with matching stained glass light above.
Various alterations and improvements have been carried out to the property over recent years. The floors in the sitting room and dining room were also replaced with suspended insulated oak flooring; a conservatory was added, a garage constructed and the gardens landscaped. In 2006 the house was reroofed with new Welsh slate and all of the lead work was renewed. In addition to this, Victorian style gutters and downpipes in power coated cast aluminium were installed.

Excellent sailing and golfing facilities are available nearby on the popular Suffolk heritage coast. Ipswich provides good access to various road networks via the A12 to the south linking to Colchester, Chelmsford & London whilst the A14 links to the M11 and The Midlands.
