THE PROPERTY This outstanding property offers what is rarely available. A beautifully presented modern single storey home set in landscaped manageable gardens, in this peaceful semi-rural setting away from busy roads with excellent views. The current owners have comprehensively remodeled both the buildings and the grounds, to create what is now an exceptionally comfortable home. The property benefits from modern double-glazed windows and doors, a recently replaced oil fired central heating boiler and a new conservatory overlooking the gardens. The solar gain alone, due to the south rear aspect, is sufficient to significantly enhance the energy performance of this luxurious individual home. A paved terrace to the front gives access to the front door which leads into the central hallway. The gracious sitting room, which has been enlarged to comfortable proportions by incorporating the former fourth bedroom, features a fireplace housing a log burning stove, French doors to the rear terrace and an opening that leads into the modern conservatory that affords stunning garden and countryside views to the rear. The kitchen/dining room features an appealing range of base and eye level units, with a superb Belling range style electric cooker, integrated fridge/freezer and dishwasher, a 11/4 bowl single drainer stainless steel sink, Karndean flooring throughout, French doors to the rear and a door leading out to a small balcony that benefits from the early morning sun in the east. There is also a snug which leads directly from the dining area and features an electric fire in the feature fireplace and French doors to the garden, making it an ideal day room. The utility/boot room also leads off the kitchen with a split stable door, ideal for households with dogs following muddy countryside walks, of which there are a good selection directly from the property. This room also provides space and plumbing for automatic appliances and features a further sink and store cupboards. The master bedroom is dual aspect with a stylish en-suite bathroom presenting a rolled top and clawfoot bath, vanity wash basin unit, heated towel rail and wc. There are two further bedrooms and a family bathroom with a panel enclosed bath and separate shower cubicle, vanity wash basin unit and wc. OUTSIDE A gated in/out driveway gives access to the spacious graveled parking area and around to the detached double garage, two up and over doors open to the front with a personal door to the side, below external steps that lead up to the first floor studio/guest accommodation with kitchenette and en-suite shower room. The external oil-fired boiler has been re-sited out of sight behind the garage along with the oil storage tank. The garden, which has been improved significantly by the current owners now features trees, shrub and flower beds and borders with a summer pavilion and a timber framed gazebo, connected by a paved terrace, ideal for alfresco dining and enjoying the countryside views. From Bury St Edmunds head south on the A134 for approximately 2 miles, passing ''The Rushbrook Arms' public house on the left and after a short distance take the left turn signposted Little Whelnetham and Bradfield St George. Continue up the hill passing the parish church on your right and follow the road leaving the village. At the triangle junction, take the right turn (signposted Bradfield St Clare) and follow this road into the hamlet of Lower Green. The Bungalow can be found to the rear of the road front properties, off an unmade track on the left-hand side as can be seen on the aerial plan.
