DESCRIPTION - MAIN RESIDENCE For those who enjoy entertaining, this stunning home has been extended and renovated to provide a fantastic living, dining kitchen with bi-folding windows onto the rear garden. This room really is the hub of the home and with the further benefit of bi-folding doors onto the elevated patio, these two areas flow beautifully.

The entrance hall is spacious and light and has engineered wood flooring, complemented perfectly with the oak doors. There are two built in, pull out cupboards for shoes meaning this whole space is minimal without worrying about children kicking off their shoes and leaving them lying around. One of the walls is brick, which has been painted white. There is a double cloaks cupboard, which in real "Narnia" style, has a door through into the annexe, thus keeping the two separate, but also having access if required.

An opening from the entrance hall leads into the study which has both built in desk and recessed shelving made from scaffold boards. As this room is close to the main entrance, for those who work from home, it not only means it is separated from the main accommodation so you really can feel like your work and personal life are split, it also means visitors to the property are also kept away from the living accommodation. The engineered wood flooring continues through into this room.

The cloakroom is a white, modern suite with slate, brick style tiling and recessed shelves.

Ideal for those with a young family, there is another reception room, which is currently the playroom. Sliding doors lead out onto the rear garden and again, the engineered flooring continues into the room. An oak door provides access to the utility room which has a range of built in cupboards for additional storage, space for a washing machine and a stable door onto the rear garden.

Steps from the entrance hall lead into the living dining kitchen, which, without doubt, has the real wow factor. To the kitchen area, there are black units with granite work surface over. There is an integrated larder fridge and larder freezer and if you enjoy cooking and baking, there are two ovens and a built in oven/microwave. One cupboard hides the kettle and toaster keeping all work spaces free for food preparation and there is certainly no shortage of this. There are pan drawers and an integrated dishwasher. The island unit has a built in breakfast bar and also houses the induction hob with pop up extractor. The large skylight above this area creates wonderful natural light. This whole room has underfloor heating and also inset speaker system.

The bi-folding window is certainly another superb feature to this room and with elevated views towards the rear garden, mature trees and fields, it feels like a picture. There is also bi-folding doors to the patio area so both the door and window onto the outdoor seating area makes it perfect for those who enjoy entertaining. With the benefit of the breakfast bar, this room accommodates formal and informal dining.

The dining area easily accommodates a large table and chairs and with it being incorporated as part of the living kitchen, it is the real hub of the home and somewhere where you can still chat to friends and family whilst preparing a meal. There is a window to the side of the property.

The living area is another example of how spacious this whole room is. The current owners have a large, L shaped sofa which definitely doesn't compromise the space. There are oak doors leading to a cupboard and another walk in storage area, perfect for a pantry or wine making and store. A further window is to the front of the property.

Steps from the entrance hall not only lead to the living dining kitchen but also to the first floor accommodation. The first floor landing has solid oak flooring, complemented further with the oak doors. There is an airing cupboard and additional store cupboard. The master suite has superb elevated views over the rear garden and fields beyond and you just know how wonderful it will be to watch the leaves on the established trees changing through the seasons. The owners have created a lower ceiling with lighting to ensure this room has a calming ambience. The solid oak floor is continued through into this room. A discrete door provides access to the dressing room which has ample space for clothing and a dressing area. There is also a window to the rear. Leading off from here is the fabulous monochrome en suite shower room which has a walk in double shower with feature led lighting and fabulous tiling.

There are two further double bedrooms, one of which houses the airing cupboard, whilst the other has a fantastic walk in cupboard. The fourth bedroom has a wonderful feature wall and charming built in cupboard with glass front. The house bathroom (in the final stages of completion) will comprise of a walk in shower, free standing bath, sink and wc.

Outside, this home has a tarmacadam driveway with feature circular area of shingle and flower borders. There is a lawned area to the side with gate giving access to the rear garden. There certainly is ample space for friends and family to visit.

The rear garden which is approximately 1/3 acre is well established with mature trees and predominantly laid to lawn. This really is a fantastic area for children, pets and the keen gardener. The elevated patio area provides a great space for sitting and entertaining and has oak slats making it feel like another room and ideal for BBQ's and al fresco dining. 

DESCRIPTION - ANNEX Entrance to the annex can be accessed either via the main residence or through the conservatory. The conservatory, which is situated to the front of the property has double doors into the living/sleeping area. With the fireplace and open fire, this room will undoubtedly be efficient and cosy during colder months. A door from here gives access to the main residence and into the inner hall. This area has a store cupboard and door into the shower room which is a white suite with underfloor heating.

The kitchen is also accessed via the inner hall and comprises an electric hob, double oven, space for a washing machine and fridge and has a door onto the rear garden. With some updating, the annex would be perfect for rental, an air bnb, holiday let or for a dependent relative. Not that it would be needed, however, there is also the possibility of incorporating it as part of the main residence (stc). 

LOCATION The position of this home is absolutely perfect for easy access to the beautiful Suffolk coastline with Aldeburgh approximately 15 minutes drive and Thorpeness approximately 16 minutes drive. Stratford St Andrew is a small village just off the A12 and is located 3 miles south west of Saxmundham, which has a railway station with links to London Liverpool Street and Norwich. It also has Waitrose and Tesco supermarkets as well as an array of shops, bars and restaurants. The village itself has a Church, a petrol station with superb shop, which has recently started to stock Co Operative produce and for those who enjoy chatting to the locals over a drink, the Riverside Community Centre is open on a Friday and Saturday evening. Alternatively, there is The Crown Inn for a spot of wining and dining approximately a mile and a half away. 

WHAT THE OWNERS SAY "When we first saw the property, we could see the potential to extend and create a wonderful family home. We have loved the space it has given us for our two young children to play and also having friends and family around. There is a wonderful community spirit in the neighbourhood, whilst at the same time, a real feeling of privacy. We are really going to miss our home and the village".
