DESCRIPTION This splendid 'Georgian' style home was built in 1996 by Hopkins Homes, a well-regarded local developer. It has since been extended and much improved by the current owners, with works including replacement UPVC windows, gas boiler, hot water tank, consumer unit, and Karndean wood-effect flooring and oak veneer doors to the ground floor. A particularly fine feature is the large 'family-friendly' open-plan Kitchen/Breakfast/Dining Room, which has been re-modelled and re-fitted, with a quality German Schuller Kitchen, with Neff appliances. This, together with a useful Study, ideal for those wishing to work from home, and five bedrooms - two with en-suite facilities, makes this a highly desirable family home. A real credit to the current owners, and having undergone meticulous maintenance, are the generous well-stocked gardens, which to the rear are particularly private, and enjoy a Southerly aspect.
This attractively designed home offers spacious family accommodation, extending to around 2000 sq ft, in a sought-after village, convenient for the A14 and stations in Thurston (about 1 mile), Elmswell (about 3 miles), mainline link in Stowmarket (about 8 miles) and Bury St Edmunds (about 4 miles). With all the various desirable attributes on offer, early viewing is strongly advised.
