A deceptively spacious and much improved detached bungalow with wonderful views over abutting farmland to the rear. Entrance hall, sitting room, dining room, kitchen, pantry, study/bedroom, two further bedrooms, one en-suite, shower room, cloakroom and family bathroom. Loft room. Driveway with parking, garage, front and rear gardens and garden shed. In all about 0.21 of an acre (sts). THE PROPERTY Pightle is a spacious detached three-bedroom bungalow standing in a quiet village location, off Chapel Road, within this favoured Suffolk village. The property presents rendered elevations under predominantly tiled roofs and has been much improved and modernised recently by the current owners; it now provides comfortable and well-proportioned accommodation which benefits from modern double glazed windows and oil fired radiator central heating. An entrance porch leads through a solid oak front door into a light and spacious hallway that leads to the principle rooms for the property and the family bathroom. The sitting room has double glazed patio sliding doors to the garden and the dining room has a fireplace. To the other side of the hall the study affords the versatile option of good space to work from home or the benefit of a well-proportioned 3rd bedroom. The stylish family bathroom has recently been comprehensively refitted, as has the kitchen, which now features a superb range of base and eye level units with integrated appliances including a dishwasher and washing machine and there is a corner pantry unit. Beyond the kitchen there is a passage which gives access to the walk-in pantry cupboard, the attached garage and two further bedrooms. The main bedroom has a window and French doors overlooking the attractive rear garden and the 2nd bedroom, currently used as a dressing room, affords the benefit of an en-suite shower room. This is a tranquil, attractive property with pleasing outlooks especially to the rear and with further scope for improvement. The previous owners used the loft, which is currently accessed via a fold down ladder in the hall, as a model railway room and there are two Velux rooflight windows that open to the rear - there is therefore scope and space for this to be further incorporated into the accommodation if necessary or desirable (subject to the necessary permissions and consents). OUTSIDE The gardens are a particular feature of Pightle and the property is initially approached over a well maintained block paved driveway providing parking for several cars and which leads to a single garage with an up and over door to the front, personal door to the house and power and light. The front garden features a lawn that fronts the road, bordered by mature shrub and flower beds and a pair of beautiful Silver Birch trees. The outstanding south facing rear garden is predominantly laid to lawn and is surrounded by well stocked mature shrub and flower beds and borders and is enclosed by hedging. There are two terraced patio areas (one with an electric retractable awning) that afford excellent alfresco dining and entertaining space and most significantly the garden enjoys far reaching views over abutting farmland to the rear. There is also a garden store/potting shed with power and outside lighting. LOCATION Pightle is located within the village of Stanningfield in an extremely attractive area of Suffolk which maintains a very rural feel but in close proximity to Bury St Edmunds and within easy reach of the A14. The village has a public house and the nearby village of Hawstead lies only 2.5 miles away and features a former public house now used as a café and specialist cycle shop and a fine parish church as well modern purpose built village hall. More comprehensive facilities can be found in the nearby cathedral town of Bury St Edmunds, which offers an excellent range of amenities with schooling in the public and private sectors, extensive shopping facilities and a good range of leisure facilities, including health clubs, swimming pools and golf clubs. The university city of Cambridge is approximately 30 miles away and offers unrivalled schooling opportunities and excellent shopping and amenity facilities. There is good access to the A14, A11 (M11) and the railway station at Bury St Edmunds offers a link to mainline services to London Liverpool Street and Kings Cross. Alternatively there is a regular train service from Stowmarket to London Liverpool Street taking approximately 80 minutes. Stansted International Airport is approximately 60 minutes' drive by car.
