Eastbridge, Leiston, East Bridge | £425,000


A detached bungalow in need of modernisation set in a spectacular location at the heart of Eastbridge and just on the door step of the RSPB nature reserve at Minsmere. Occupying a large plot with space to extend this is a conservationist's dream. 3 bedrooms, kitchen/diner, sitting room, rural views.
A detached bungalow in a stunning rural village close to the nature reserve at RSPB Minsmere and within a short walk of the Eel's Foot Inn. The property which was built to the late owner's specification in the 1960s, occupies a large plot with mature gardens and enjoys views across beautiful countryside towards Minsmere. The bungalow offers a spacious range of light and airy accommodation which would now benefit from a careful programme of modernisation. There is scope and space to extend and develop the bungalow, subject to the usual planning consents. The accommodation includes a large sitting room which has a fireplace and French windows that open out to the garden. There is a large kitchen/breakfast room and three good sized bedrooms, one of which has been used as a dining room/snug. There is a family bathroom and separate WC, plus a useful lobby which links the bungalow to the integral garage and incorporates a coal shed and boiler room that houses an oil-fired system for the central heating. The gardens have been planted to provide a haven for bird and wildlife and there are many established ornamental hedgerows, trees and shrubs which have been places to create semi enclosed garden areas. This affords the garden a very high degree of privacy. An early inspection is recommended in order to appreciate the scope and potential offered within.
