A beautifully presented semi-detached modern barn conversion with a south facing private garden, superbly located in this charming village close to Bury St Edmunds and the A14. Entrance hall, sitting room, open plan kitchen/dining room, study, utility room and cloakroom. First floor galleried landing, master bedroom with en-suite shower room, three further bedrooms and a family bathroom. Shared driveway and private parking, double garage, outbuilding store and garden. THE PROPERTY 4 Quays Barns is a stylishly modernised and well-proportioned semi-detached family home which was converted from a timber framed barn in the 1980's, being mainly timber clad under a pan tiled roof. The property benefits from double glazed windows throughout and oil-fired radiator central heating. The front door gives access to the entrance hall which, with a vaulted ceiling, is overlooked by the galleried first floor landing that the stairs lead up to. The hall is open plan with Karndean Oak plank effect flooring through to the spacious and appealing kitchen dining room, which forms the hub of this family home. The kitchen is stylishly presented with a range of grey base mounted units with a polished granite worksurface, underset 1 ¼ bowl stainless steel sink unit, integrated bin store cupboard, dishwasher, Rangemaster gas hob and electric over range cooker and a Kenwood American style fridge freezer with water and ice maker. There is further cupboard storage in the central island unit with breakfast bar and timber worksurface. There are windows and a door leading out to the rear garden and a door to the utility room at the front. This affords further storage and worksurface area with a 2nd sink unit and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer. There is also a modern floor mounted Grant oil fired boiler and tiled floor. The sitting room opens off the central dining area and provides the charm and benefit of a log burning stove set into the fireplace which also presents an oak mantle beam above. There are windows overlooking the garden to the side and rear and French doors to the terrace. The study has been found to be invaluable for working from home and has a window overlooking the drive to the front. There is a cloakroom off the hall at the bottom of the stairs, useful for family living if the main first floor bathroom is occupied. The four well-proportioned double bedrooms, off the landing, benefit from the character of the exposed original substantial barn framework. The master bedroom also benefits from a well fitted en-suite shower room and the family bathroom has a shower bath with separate shower over the bath, tiled splash backs and a contemporary bathroom unit with basin and wc. OUTSIDE The house owns the drive to its front and the detached double garage with storeroom, which is located just past the property on the left-hand side (as seen in the photo on the back page). There are two parking spaces in front of the house and the south facing garden (approx. 90ft x 70ft max), to the rear and side of the house, is hedge and fence enclosed (pet and child friendly) and laid mainly to lawn with a high degree of privacy to the rear. A personal gate opens to the side with a path to the rear terrace which is ideal for alfresco dining with doors opening onto it from the kitchen/dining room and the sitting room. LOCATION 4 Quays Barns is well located, being set back behind other property off School Road, in the heart of this popular village, close to the well-regarded primary school, only 3 miles from Bury st Edmunds. The village further features a fine parish church, a public house and a popular antiques centre. More extensive facilities can be found nearby in the historic cathedral town of Bury St Edmunds which provides a full range of schooling, recreational and shopping facilities, including the Arc Shopping Centre. The property is well located for road communications with the A14 being only ½ a mile to the south and for the rail commuter there is a fast and regular service to London's Kings Cross from Cambridge taking approximately 60 minutes and from Stowmarket to London's Liverpool Street Station which takes approximately 85 minutes.
