A beautiful individual architect designed four bedroom house which was constructed to an exacting standard by local builders Fielden Ltd. The house is located in a quiet lane at the heart of Friston within view of the old mill and a just a couple of minutes walk from the Chequers public house and the village green. The location is ideal for access to the many attractions of the Suffolk Heritage Coast and the local amenities and railway station at nearby Saxmundham. The house which has been designed with a Suffolk vernacular style, offers high energy efficiency. The walls, roof and floors are highly insulated and the property is heated via an air source heat pump which delivers heat underfloor to the downstairs rooms and via radiators to the upstairs spaces. The accommodation has been designed to be versatile. There are three well-proportioned first floor bedrooms which are served by a smart family bathroom. The fourth bedroom, on the ground floor, is served by a very smart shower room. This bedroom could be ideal for guests with mobility issues and can be used as a snug or study. The open plan kitchen/dining room has a bay window and also opens to the garden via French windows. The kitchen is beautifully appointed with a comprehensive range of cabinets under polished granite work tops. There are integrated appliances which include an impressive SMEG range cooker, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. There is additional appliance space in the very useful separate utility room. The sitting room is light and airy, it has bi-folding doors that open out to the south facing rear garden and features a substantial fireplace with a wood burner. The south facing rear garden is laid to lawn and planted with herbaceous borders and established shrubs. There are wide flag stone seating areas and pathways to side gates that open to the driveway at the front. The driveway affords good off street parking to the front. The garage is of a generous size and could be converted for use as an office or studio (subject to planning consent). There is a cart lodge to the side with its own loft space. This property has had sparing use since it was built and an internal inspection is highly recommended in order to fully appreciate the standard of finish offered within.

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. The village sits on the edge of the popular Sandlings Walk which ls a walk through the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty from Southwold to Ipswich.

Applicants may be aware of the proposals from Scottish Power for a new installation on the far side of the village. (Not visible from this property).
