A deceptive four bedroom single storey house with a newly built oak framed motor house and self contained flat. The property which is situated in a non-estate location on the northern edge of Snape, occupies a secluded plot thought to extend to about 0.28 acres (subject to survey), overlooking light woodland. The house has been extended and modernised and is of traditional construction with lapboard facings to the front and north elevations, beneath an interlocking tiled roof. The house benefits from oil fired central heating by radiators with uPVC double glazed windows. The self contained studio flat is heated by Fischer electric radiators. The double garage and workshop are insulated and will appeal to anyone wishing to store valuable or classic cars. The driveway offers excellent off street parking and the size of the plot would allow for the storage of a boat or caravan. The accommodation in the house is beautifully presented and features a very smart open plan kitchen/dining room which opens out to a south facing sun deck via a pair of French windows and bi-folding doors. The sitting room, which is well proportioned, features a fireplace with a contemporary wood burning stove. All four bedrooms will accommodate double beds and they are served by a family bathroom and an en-suite shower room. The studio flat, which has vaulted ceilings, is accessed via an external staircase that leads to a balcony with space for a table and chairs. The flat is open plan with a smart fitted kitchen and integrated oven and hob. There is a shower room and the bedroom/sitting area could be used as office or work space if desired. The flat would make an ideal guest suite or annexe. The garden has been attractively landscaped and is enclosed by well-maintained evergreen hedges. Properties of this nature are difficult to find and we therefore strongly urge an early internal inspection.

This part of Suffolk is a haven for artists, writers and musicians. Snape has excellent local pubs and restaurants, a primary school, garage/shop.
