DESCRIPTION Welcome to Springwood Place, a select, quality, small development of just 6 properties, being built by the multi award-winning developer Granville Developments, in the charming village of Elmswell, lying in the very heart of the Suffolk countryside. Located between the historic, cathedral town of Bury St Edmunds and the pretty market town of Stowmarket, it offers residents an authentic taste of rural England along with all the advantages of contemporary living.
Elmswell is a welcoming, long-established community; the history of the village can be traced as far back as the Roman times, based on a site containing a pottery kiln dated around the third century, and the local Church of St John the Divine is mentioned in the Domesday book. Elmswell is one of the largest and most active villages in Suffolk, and so has plenty to offer residents. It has all the local conveniences for your day-to-day needs, including a Post Office, Primary School, large Co-Op Supermarket, General Store, Nursery School, Butchers, Pharmacy, Library, Pet Shop, Veterinary Surgery, Hair Salons, a Chinese Takeaway, Fish and Chip Shop, two Pubs, and the busy Blackbourne Community Centre offers many social and sports clubs. For a family picnic or a relaxing, summer stroll, there's a beauty spot known as Kiln Meadow close by, home to a variety of songbirds. It's a beautiful spot, well-managed by local wildlife enthusiasts from the Kiln Meadow Wildlife Group and the Elmswell Community Woodland. Conveniently, Elmswell has its own railway station, so you can hop on a train and be in Stowmarket in as little as 9 minutes or Bury St Edmunds in 12 minutes, with all they have to offer, or right in the town centre of bustling, coastal Ipswich in around 25 minutes.
This outstanding family home is perfectly suited to all aspects of today's modern lifestyles. Located off the welcoming entrance hallway, you'll find a dining room which could also be used as a study or home office a neat downstairs cloakroom, a well-proportioned dual-aspect sitting room with French doors, and a beautifully appointed kitchen/breakfast area that also boasts glazed double-doors opening out onto the patio and landscaped rear garden, with farmland views beyond. Upstairs features four bedrooms, with the generous master and second bedroom enjoying their own stylish en-suite shower rooms. A sleek family bathroom completes this quality family residence. The exclusive 'feel' of this home continues with the attention to detail, with the decision to render the elevations and have the roof covered in plain tiles, which gives it a more traditional appearance. Granville Developments also give their purchasers the opportunity to upgrade to add wardrobes or storage (subject to build).
