A beautifully presented individual detached house in a semi-rural location with far reaching views over open Suffolk countryside. The property, which is located at the heart of the pretty Suffolk village of Cransford, benefits from a most attractive landscaped rear garden which features a wide veranda that is perfect for outdoor entertaining. There is a good sized in and out driveway, which affords excellent parking and space for a motorhome. The driveway leads to a double garage. The accommodation benefits from underfloor heating on the ground floor with radiators to the first floor rooms. The system is supplied by an oil-fired boiler. The ground floor comprises: an entrance hall and a double aspect sitting room, with an open fireplace and double doors that open out to the veranda and landscaped garden. The separate dining room, which enjoys views of the surrounding countryside, has sliding doors that open to the kitchen allowing for an open plan or closed entertaining space. The kitchen is well-appointed with oak fronted cabinets and drawers. There is a breakfast bar and an integrated dishwasher and fridge plus space for an American fridge/freezer and an electric cooker, for which there is a fitted extractor hood. Appliances such as the washing machine and tumble dryer (not included in the sale) are plumbed into the large, insulated outside utility room. The tiled flooring in the hall and reception rooms extends through into the kitchen, the study and downstairs cloakroom. The study has a large built in cupboard and opens to a rear lobby that in turn opens out to the garden. The first floor features a galleried landing with turned balustrades. The three double bedrooms are well-proportioned. Bedrooms one and two, at the front, enjoy wonderful rural views and each benefits from wall to wall fitted wardrobes. Bedroom three, a double aspect room, overlooks the rear garden. There is a spacious family bathroom which is fitted with a bath and a separate shower cubicle. When the house was built by the previous owner in the early 1990s, the attic was floored and plaster-boarded. A window was set into the gable and electricity and water points were installed. Access to this useful storage space is via a good pull down ladder. Applicants may be interested in exploring the possibilities for converting the loft which has a head height of 1.89 metres.
