Enjoying a secluded woodland setting off a private drive, within walking distance of Woodbridge's Thoroughfare, a substantial and newly refurbished residence. Greenwood is a substantial, detached house understood to date from the 1940s. Offered for sale in the open market for the first time in 44 years, the house has recently undergone a comprehensive refurbishment and today offers well laid out and well-presented accommodation, extending to some 2,994 sq ft, with the principal rooms focusing to the south and enjoying views across the woodland gardens and grounds and the trees of Leeks Hill beyond. The house sits in a secluded setting, created by the surrounding woodland, yet is conveniently located within walking distance of Woodbridge's Thoroughfare and with easy access to the region's road network. Presented to a high standard throughout, and benefitting from a gas-fired central heating system, the accommodation includes a central reception hall, set off which is a well-proportioned triple aspect drawing room with French doors onto the wide south facing terrace, an equally well-proportioned dining room with wide bay window and the impressive fully equipped kitchen/breakfast room, which also has wide French doors onto the terrace, and a study, together with utility room, pantry and rear hall. On the first floor, set off a central landing are six bedrooms and four bath/shower rooms (2 en suite). OUTSIDE A shingle drive sweeps to the front of the house providing access to the double garage and further parking area. To the rear is a wide south facing paved terrace, ideal for alfresco dining, with steps leading down onto a wide lawn which is bordered and sheltered by mature trees and hedges to create a secluded garden, which runs into the woodland grounds and includes numerous mature oak, horse chestnut, beech and birch. In all the property extends to about 13/4 acres. SIX ACRE WOODLAND Greenwood is a joint owner, with three of its neighbouring properties, of a private 6 acre area of mature mixed woodland bordering its own woodland.
