A handsome Georgian style modern house in a convenient edge of village setting with 2 acres and far reaching southerly views. Designed and built for the present vendors around the turn of the millennium, Berwick House, with its handsome Georgian style facade under peg tile roofs, is an individual residence offering light, well-presented and well laid out accommodation. Extending to some 2,267 sq ft, the house features oak flooring and distinctive glazed doors and benefits from an oil-fired central heating system, as well as modern security and fire detection systems. There is double glazing and the rooms to the rear enjoy far reaching southerly views across the gardens and the picturesque countryside of the neighbouring valley. On the ground floor, set off a central entrance hall, double part-glazed doors lead into a well-proportioned sitting room, with a large brick fireplace with a Morso woodburning stove. Double French doors open through to an impressive garden room, which in turn links back into the fully fitted kitchen with granite work surfaces and a cooking range. The ground floor is completed with a second snug sitting room and a generously sized study, plus a cloakroom. On the first floor, set off a central landing, are four bedrooms, two en suite bathrooms and a shower room, featuring an impressively large shower. There is also access to an extensive loft area. OUTSIDE Approached over a right of way through Homechurch, five-bar gates access a gravelled parking and turning area to the front of the house, adjacent to which is the double garage. Further gates lead around either side of the house to the sheltered and secluded gardens, with a sun trap terrace area and lawned garden. Immediately to the south of the house is a raised sun trap deck, ideal for alfresco dining from where the lovely views across the valley are enjoyed. A further five-bar gate from the driveway accesses a track which leads into an area of meadow grounds with a maturing copse of trees, beyond which is 1.5 acres of grassland paddock. In all the property extends to just over 2 acres. The paddocks adjoin further paddocks of a nearby equestrian centre, making the property ideal for those with equestrian interests. LOCATION Set within the Gipping Valley, Berwick House enjoys an edge of village rural setting easily accessible to the region's main communication routes. The neighbouring villages of Great Blakenham and Claydon, as well as nearby picturesque Needham Market, provide a full range of local amenities whilst the county town of Ipswich is just 6 miles to the south, from where main line rail services run regularly to London's Liverpool Street Station in about 70 minutes. The A14 junctions are easily accessed at either Claydon or Needham Market and provide a dual carriageway link to London and the M25 (via the A12) as well as to Bury St Edmunds, Cambridge and The Midlands to the west. Educationally there is a wide choice of top performing schools in the area both in the state and private sectors.
