An elegant individual four bedroom detached house situated at the heart of a pretty Suffolk village. Ashdene is a much loved, non estate, family house which is located in a country lane just a minute's walk from Darsham's popular village pub: The Fox; and within convenient reach of Darsham Railway station and the village shop and petrol station. The property, which has a mature and manageable sized garden, backs onto farmland and enjoys a wonderful west view over open Suffolk countryside. Centrally heated by oil fired radiators and double glazed, the versatile accommodation is light, airy and deceptively spacious. There is an impressive reception hall which is large enough to accommodate a piano; a double aspect sitting room which has French windows that open out to the garden and an attractive fireplace; a separate dining room which opens into the conservatory; a fitted kitchen/breakfast room and a large utility room. The study is generously proportioned and is adjacent to the downstairs shower room, providing an alternative bedroom for guests unable to manage the stairs. On the first floor, the lovely large landing opens to the four double bedrooms. Bedrooms one and two have built in wardrobes and face west (overlooking open countryside). Bedroom one has a large en-suite bathroom room. The other bedrooms are served by the family bathroom. The house also incorporates an integral garage that extends to approximately 29 square metres. This space could also be adapted as additional accommodation or converted to an office or creative studio space. The driveway at the front affords good off street parking and the private and sunny garden extends to the south and west sides of the house, laid to lawn with established shrubs and flower borders. There is potential to update and enhance this much loved home and as properties of this nature become increasingly hard to find, we most strongly recommend an early appointment to view.

Darsham is situated on a branch line, just off the A12, close to areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty forming part of the Heritage Coastline, just four miles from Dunwich beach and the Minsmere RSPB reserve, golf courses and opportunities for sailing and boating.

There is a garage with its own excellent shop and The Fox - a very popular pub which serves good food and beer. There is an active new village hall, The beautiful All Saints Church which holds regular services and community gatherings.
