A beautiful Grade II listed detached period house which is situated on the edge of the pretty Suffolk village of Bredfield, close to the ancient riverside town of Woodbridge and within convenient reach of Ipswich and the Suffolk Heritage Coast. The farmhouse, which is thought to date from the seventeenth century, has been sympathetically extended and modernised in recent years. The property has been well maintained and has recently benefited from the installation of new hand crafted windows. The versatile and spacious accommodation is centrally heated by gas-fired radiators and includes a large dining room with open studwork through to an elegant sitting room in which there is a deep inglenook and wood burner. There is a second living room, which also has a fireplace and wood burner and a beautifully appointed farmhouse kitchen/breakfast room which is fitted with bespoke, custom made cabinets by Ashford and Brookes. French windows open from the farmhouse kitchen to the garden and there is a useful utility room/lobby, a study, and a downstairs cloakroom. The first floor is accessible via two staircases. Bedroom one, which has views over open countryside, features a vaulted ceiling and benefits from an en-suite shower room. Bedroom one is accessed, independently, via the "new" staircase. There is a crawl-through from the new landing into the old antechamber which provides a secondary access to the family bathroom and three further double bedrooms. The old staircase rises from the second living room to bedroom three. From this room a door leads into the second bedroom and a further door to the antechamber and fourth bedroom beyond. The house is attractively presented throughout and boasts a wealth of exposed beams (including low first floor tie beams) and studwork. The house is set in a private and secluded, manageable sized plot. The shingle driveway provides good off street parking in front of the garage and cart lodge. The garden is laid extensively to lawn and is flanked by established hedges, with mature shrubs and a delightful paved patio and outside entertaining area. The property abuts pasture at the rear and enjoys a high degree of privacy and seclusion.
