This five bedroom detached house is situated towards the desirable east side of Ipswich falling within the Northgate School catchment. The property sits well within its plot with views across the surrounding countryside. The county town of Ipswich offers a range of local amenities including schools, university, shops, doctors, dental surgeries, hospital, two theatres, parks, recreational facilities and mainline railway station providing direct links to London Liverpool Street Station. The town has also undergone an extensive rebuilding and a gentrification programme principally around the vibrant waterfront which now boasts some lovely bars and restaurants.

Description

Westerfield House Cottage is a deceptively spacious light and airy house built of red brick under a pan tiled roof.

The ground floor accommodation comprises an entrance hall which gives access to the well proportioned sitting room/dining room which has a wooden floor and benefits from a wood burning stove. French doors from the sitting room open out on to the garden. Off the sitting room is a playroom with a triple aspect and cloakroom. The kitchen is cleverly designed and well laid out, enhanced by a partially vaulted ceiling. It is fitted with wooden base and wall mounted units with a granite worktop over and electric Rangemaster. The peninsula worktop has a breakfast bar with a comfortable seating area beyond.
The conservatory/breakfast room is a later addition, providing a delightfully light and airy room, linking the snug to the kitchen. The utility area is off the rear hall along with the cloakroom.

The first floor is reached via the hall staircase with the landing leading through to master bedroom which is partially vaulted and has a separate dressing room. There are another 4 double bedrooms (one of which is currently used as a study). The family bathroom has a double shower and corner bath and there is a separate shower room.

Outside
The property is approached through a wooden five bar gate across a sweeping gravel drive with parking for a number of cars and access to the garage. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn surrounded by established planting, offering the property a high degree of privacy and seclusion. There is a patio
area to the rear of the garden, perfect for alfresco dining and enjoying the fantastic views of the surrounding countryside.

Services
Mains water, electricity and drainage. Oil fired central heating.
