Sternfield, Saxmundham | £375,000

A substantial semi-detached Victorian house with 17th century origins in large plot of about 0.75 acres (sts). The property has four bedrooms and two bathrooms, two large reception rooms, utility room and kitchen, garage and workshop. Stunning wildlife and formal gardens, good parking space.
Bywoods is a deceptively spacious semi-detached house which occupies a very large plot that includes a formal garden area, small orchard and light woodland, wildlife area. The house dates, in the main, from the 19th century but has a much early origin which can be seen in the sitting room and guest bedroom where the timber framing serves as a reminder of the original 17th century farmhouse that was largely destroyed by fire during the Victorian era. Set back from the road, the property is secretly located off a private driveway and benefits from a large garage/workshop and a former loose box that could be converted to an office or studio (subject to the usual consents). There is plenty of off street parking and scope to further enhance and develop the accommodation. The house is centrally heated by oil-fired radiators and benefits from double glazing with wood burning stoves in the two large reception rooms, both of which open directly onto the private rear garden. There is a smart fitted kitchen and a large utility room. There are three first floor bedrooms located in the 19th century portion of the house and a further guest bedroom and en-suite bathroom above the sitting room in the original part. There is a family shower room located on the ground floor. The property which has been in the same family ownership for more than sixty years has been much loved and sympathetically maintained. Bywoods is located in a semi-rural location on the border of Saxmundham, Sternfield and Benhall. It is ideally situated for access to the excellent local amenities at Saxmundham and the primary school and social club at Benhall Green.
