Located off a country lane within the parish of Clopton, Dale Farmhouse occupies a wonderfully tranquil position, yet situated only 5 miles to the west of Woodbridge and the A12. Understood to date from the mid-1970's, the property has been home to the current vendors for some 38 years. The house sits well in a large 1.8 acre plot and has been well maintained throughout. Within, the accommodation, which extends to some 3,254 sq ft, benefits from an oil-fired central heating system and offers light and well laid out family accommodation with the majority of the rooms enjoying fine views across the gardens and the surrounding countryside. There are three spacious principal reception rooms plus both garden and sun rooms, a fully fitted kitchen/breakfast room with a large study/at home office beyond. On the first floor there are five bedrooms and two recently refurbished bathrooms, one of which is en suite. OUTSIDE A tarmac drive, flanked by mature fruit trees, sweeps to a parking area to the front of the house and continues through a brick arch to a parking courtyard, fronting onto which is the integral double garage. Brick paved terraces run around the house and are bordered by well-stocked colourful herbaceous beds. To the front the lawned gardens include a large ornamental pond and a variety of mature trees and shrubs, whilst to the rear the gardens include a variety of fruit trees, an area of kitchen garden with a cedar greenhouse and a sheltered terrace. There is a large garden store and post and rail fencing divides a 3/4 acre L-shaped pony paddock which runs around two sides of the garden. There is a timber stable and hay store as well as an independent five-bar gate returning to the lane. In all the property extends to 1.8 acres. LOCATION Dale Farmhouse enjoys a tucked away rural setting within the Parish of Clopton and is conveniently located just 7 miles from the county town of Ipswich and some 4 miles from the picturesque river front town of Woodbridge. Between them they provide a full range of shopping and commercial facilities which are complimented by those available from the smaller towns of Wickham Market (5 miles) and Framlingham (7 miles), plus the neighbouring villages of Otley and Grundisburgh which have Post Offices and general stores, as well as local doctors surgery and pubs, whilst the popular town of Aldeburgh on the Suffolk Heritage Coast lies some 17 miles to the east. There is a wide choice of schools in both the state and private sectors in and around Woodbridge, Ipswich and Framlingham with local primary schools in the nearby villages. The region's main road and rail communication routes are easily accessed, with regular mainline rail services running from Ipswich to London's Liverpool Street about 70 minutes, and recreationally there is a wide choice of sporting clubs and societies catering for all interests in the nearby towns, together with a wide choice of water sports on the east coast estuaries.
