A delightful, spacious semi detached house in a pretty village not far from the coast. Large south facing garden with useful outbuildings and space to extend the accommodation further. Two reception rooms, smart fitted kitchen, large utility room, cloakroom. Excellent parking. Deserves early Viewing.
A most appealing semi-detached house which is situated in a pretty lane on the edge of the popular Suffolk village of Friston within a short walk of the church, the village green and the village pub. The property benefits from a large, mature and south-facing rear garden which is well planted and has a very useful range of outbuildings including a garden office and a workshop. The driveway at the front offers space to park several vehicles including a trailer or boat. The plot is large enough to accommodate an extension to the main house at the side or the rear, subject to the usual planning consents. The accommodation is most attractively presented and is heated by oil-fired radiators. There is a fireplace and log burner in the double aspect sitting room. The separate dining room is well proportioned and opens from the well appointed kitchen. There is a large separate utility room and a useful ground floor cloakroom. The two first floor bedrooms are served by a large bathroom. The property which is thought to date from the inter-war period has great charm and character and is worthy of an early internal inspection.

Friston has a large village green, an active village hall and pub "The Chequers". The village lies conveniently between Aldeburgh and the market town of Saxmundham with easy access to the neighbouring village of Snape, famous for its world class Maltings Concert Hall, home to the Aldeburgh Festival. Saxmundham, which has a Wednesday market and Waitrose and Tesco supermarkets, also benefits from a good range of shops. Its railway station provides connecting services to London. The seaside town of Aldeburgh has an excellent range of local shops with art galleries and fine restaurants. There are golf courses at Aldeburgh, Thorpeness and Halesworth with sailing on the rivers Deben and Alde/Ore. Nature reserves in the area include RSPB Minsmere, Havergate Island, Snape Warren and North Warren.

Applicants may be aware of the proposals by Scottish Power for a site on the far side of the village.
