A handsome Edwardian house in a convenient rural location on the edge of Ipswich. Understood to date from early Edwardian times, Hollies Farm, with its classically balanced red brick facade, has benefitted from both recent extension and updating works. The property offers light and well laid out accommodation, extending to some 2,335 sq ft and with the potential to be further extended by converting a service room wing to the rear, to provide potential annexe accommodation, or further service rooms. Benefiting from recent replacement glazing and a mains gas fired central heating system, the property has achieved a respectable D EPC score. The ground floor accommodation, features a spacious reception hall, set off which are two reception rooms, with the rear sitting room having south facing French doors onto the garden terrace. Adjacent is an impressive open plan L-shaped room, incorporating a fully fitted kitchen with a wide island, a seating area focusing onto a wide brick fireplace, and a dining area with a wide south facing, full height window and central French doors opening onto the courtyard terrace. Beyond the kitchen is a sizeable utility room and a rear hall and there are two separate cloakrooms. On the first floor there are four double bedrooms and a bathroom (whilst one of the ground floor reception rooms is currently set up as a fifth bedroom). The aforementioned service room wing runs beyond the utility room with a series of four multi-purpose stores/workshop and there is a double garage accessible off the front driveway. GARDENS & GROUNDS A five-bar gate accesses a shingled parking and turning area to the front of the house. The gardens and grounds lie principally to the south and east and offer an appealing variety of open lawns, shaded woodland areas and a series of sheltered sun trap terraces, together with a variety of mature trees. The present vendors have maintained an open boundary with the neighbouring grassland meadows, although a fence can be erected if the purchasers so wished to do so.
