A beautiful Grade II listed detached early Georgian House which incorporates a shop that was formerly the village post office, situated in a prominent position at the very heart of this Suffolk village between Woodbridge and the Suffolk Heritage Coast. The property which has a wealth of beautiful period architectural features (including exposed timbers, open fireplaces and early fenestration), benefits from oil-fired central heating and a recently installed wood burner in the sitting room which supplements the central heating system. The accommodation includes four impressive double bedrooms which are served by a family bathroom and an en-suite shower room to bedroom one. There is also an attractive first floor gallery/study area. The ground floor incorporates the original shop (now a family room) and the large store room which is used as a hobbies room and could be adapted for use as an office or as an art studio. These former commercial areas offer tremendous potential for anyone wishing to run a business from home e.g. small specialised retail; consultancy; therapeutic services etc. (subject to necessary consents). It could also be adapted to create a self contained annexe. The main body of the ground floor space includes a spacious sitting room which has an inglenook fireplace (with wood burner) and opens through to the breakfast room which in turn opens to the garden via French windows. The dining room, which is also generously proportioned, has a beautiful fireplace. This room opens to both the family room/former shop and the well appointed kitchen which is comprehensively fitted with limed oak cabinets and has space for a range cooker; fridge/freezer and washing machine. There is a covered rear porch that links the house to a very useful and recently installed gardener's w.c. The rear garden is walled and private with a paved patio. It is mainly laid to grass and has a pedestrian courtesy door into the garage. The oil-fired boiler is located externally in the garden. The garage, which measures 4.90m x 4.89m provides good covered parking space, but could also be dismantled and the space shared between the parking area and rear garden.
