Overlooking its beautiful gardens and enjoying views across the Fynn Valley, a substantial and well-appointed family house complete with a flexible use annexe flat. Focusing onto its delightful south east facing gardens, The Gables, dating from 1920, has been extended on a number of occasions, the most recent of which was within the last few years by the present vendors to create a comfortable and well thought out family home. Extending to some 3,576 sq ft, the well laid out accommodation flows from a central reception hall and includes an impressive L shaped open plan modern kitchen/dining/living room, with full height sliding doors opening onto the garden terrace. The room features a fully fitted kitchen by James Hardy, oak floors and modern wood burning stove, with a range of service rooms include a pantry as well as a utility room and cloakroom. There are four further double bedrooms, a family bathroom and second en suite bathroom. In addition to a tranquil drawing room there is a large conservatory, a well-proportioned dining room and two studies. On the first floor the twin aspect master bedroom has a balcony with far reaching views over the Fynn valley, together with an en suite shower room. From the rear hall a covered ''yard' links to a recently constructed four car garage range, with garden and general stores above which, with an independent, flexible use, one bed annexe flat. The property benefits from oil-fired central heating, has double glazed windows, a modern security system and super-fast fibre broadband connected. A solar photovoltaic array subsidises the cost of electricity with feed-in tariffs which have some 15 years to run. OUTSIDE The delightfully mature gardens are a significant feature of the property. Facing south east they lie mainly to the rear and are enclosed by mature hedgerow and fencing. They include a number of fine specimen trees including oak, willow and fir, together with wide lawns and an abundant display of mature and colourful rhododendrons and azaleas. Pathways lead between the various areas, which include colourful rose, herbaceous and shrub beds and borders. Adjacent to the house is a sheltered, heated swimming pool overlooked by an attractive cedar summer house, whilst beyond an area of orchard garden is a newly resurfaced championship size floodlit, hard tennis court. Hidden away within the grounds is a large sauna and there is also a productive and well-managed kitchen garden complete with greenhouse, whilst to the front there is an in/out drive and ample parking. In all the property extends to about 2 acres. LOCATION The Gables enjoys a convenient location within the parish of Tuddenham with direct access to a network of footpaths which run through the picturesque countryside of the Fynn Valley and connect to the nearby village, which has a good local pub and an active community.
