THE PROPERTY

A pretty village house with a part-walled garden of 2/3 of an acre with parking and double garage. Levells Hall fronts Chapel Street, which is set off the main square in the delightful Suffolk village of Bildeston. Presenting rendered and part-timbered elevations, with a jettied first floor under a tile roof, this Grade II Listed house provides comfortable accommodation over two floors. The eight panelled oak front door opens into the reception hall with exposed brick chimney breast. The property features exposed wall and ceiling timbers throughout, with particularly tall ceilings, which in the past accommodated the weaver's looms. Elegant drawing room with deep inglenook fireplace, housing a gas-effect open fire on a pamment hearth. Beyond is the dining room, which in turn opens into the kitchen/breakfast room and an archway through to the adjoining utility room. These two rooms could be combined and extended to make a single large kitchen area, opening out onto the adjoining terrace. Returning to the central hall and beyond is the sitting room with fireplace, self-contained ground floor annexe with kitchenette, bedroom and bathroom. Conservatory/garden room.

The garden is laid mainly to lawn with a mixed deciduous and Leylandii hedge affording good privacy all round. Space for a tennis court (there was originally a grass court). LOCATION The village, with its delightful mixture of period architecture, has a thriving local community and supports a good range of local facilities including two award winning pubs, an excellent licensed village store/post office, as well as a primary school, doctors' surgery, hairdresser, tennis club and active church.
