An elegant Grade II listed period house, which is situated in a rural location on the edge of the picturesque Suffolk village of Great Glemham surrounded by beautiful undulating countryside, and which has spectacular views of the fields and woodland from both the house and garden. The house, formerly a pair of flint-faced 19th century estate cottages, has been sympathetically extended during the latter half of the last century to provide a spacious and versatile range of accommodation which offers space to work from home, an activity that is facilitated by excellent broadband via an ultrafast full fibre connection to the house. There are four well-proportioned first floor bedrooms, which are served by a family bathroom and an ensuite shower room to bedroom one. On the ground floor there is a large study which has an adjacent shower room, so could be used as an extra bedroom. There is a light and airy triple aspect (east, south and west facing) sitting room, which has a fireplace with a wood burner, and French windows that lead to the garden. There is also a separate dining room and a superbly appointed kitchen/breakfast room which has custom-fitted cabinets, polished granite work tops and an oil-fired AGA range, as well as an integrated Neff induction hob and a Neff fan oven, plus a separate Neff combination fan/microwave oven. The kitchen also benefits from double aspect patio doors, as well as a walk-in larder. Leading from the kitchen, there is a good-sized utility room and cloakroom with WC, hand basin and water softener. The accommodation is immaculately presented and is centrally heated by oil-fired radiators, and also benefits from double glazing with a combination of sealed units and unobtrusive secondary glazing. The plot is thought to extend to about half an acre and is bordered by well-maintained hedges. The garden is beautifully landscaped: lawned with established herbaceous borders and mature trees and shrubs, as well as paved seating areas for sun and shade. The garden abuts and overlooks a natural pond, which like the rest of the garden and surrounding countryside affords a haven for wildlife. (The sellers have maintained the pond and its banks by private agreement with the land owners.) There is also a very neat kitchen garden and a greenhouse. The driveway affords parking for several cars with space for boat trailers, etc. There is also an excellent double garage with electric up-and-over doors and racking for storage.

Great Glemham lies in an enviable position along the upper reaches of the Alde valley, between Framlingham and the many attractions of the Suffolk Heritage Coast. There are

fabulous walks along footpaths through open undulating countryside, as well as the enclosed Woodland Trust recreation area, which is popular with dog walkers, and cycle routes which lead along the smaller country lanes to surrounding villages. The village benefits from an excellent pub, the Crown Inn, and also from a Village Hall which hosts a wide range of activities. Great Glemham lies

equidistant from two attractive market towns: Framlingham, which is famous for its ancient castle and has excellent shops and a

supermarket, as well as first-class schools in both the state and

private sectors; and Saxmundham, which also has a varied selection of shops, including Waitrose and Tesco, and a station connecting to the Norwich to London main railway line at Ipswich. There are also very good farm shops at nearby Friday Street and Marlesford. The world-class Snape Maltings Concert Hall is within a short drive, as is the charming seaside town of Aldeburgh. Nature reserves in the area include North Warren, Minsmere, Havergate Island and Shingle Street.
