A beautiful flint house in a pretty village location between Framlingham and the Suffolk Heritage Coast. The property which was created by a highly respected local builder has been the subject or a recent programme of modernisation and offers an exceptionally spacious range of accommodation on two floors (271.4 square metres), together with a large garage and cart lodge which have potential for conversion to additional living or work space (subject to the usual planning consents). The Old Work House is an attached property and benefits from a manageable sized, pretty and private stone walled garden. There is excellent off street parking on the driveway to the front of the house. The property benefits from double glazing and oil-fired central heating. There is an elegant fireplace and wood burner in the sitting room. There are two large reception rooms that both open to the walled garden. In addition, there is a very spacious dining room which is open to the well appointed kitchen/breakfast room: the centre piece of which is an oil fired Rayburn Range. There is a useful utility room and a study plus a down stairs cloakroom. The large and impressive reception hall is entered from the front via a pair of bespoke oak front doors and features a beautiful carved oak staircase which leads up to the galleried landing. The four double bedrooms are served by a family bathroom and an en-suite shower room to the master bedroom. We strongly recommend an early internal inspection in order to appreciate the space, versatility and standard of the accommodation offered within.
