A wonderful, spacious family home in gardens of around 0.62 of an acre, with turning circle gated drive and triple garage, in this sought-after Suffolk village, with farmland to the front and rear and easy access to Bury St Edmunds. Entrance hall, sitting room, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, garden room/orangery, snug/study, utility/boiler room and a cloakroom. Five first floor bedrooms and two bath/shower rooms. Gated driveway with turning circle, detached triple garage and large gardens. In all about 0.62 of an acre. THE PROPERTY This superbly presented spacious family home is excellently located on Freewood Street, fronting and backing onto open farmland affording excellent rural, east/west views, particularly to the rear. Presenting brick and weather boarded elevations under tiled roofs, the property boasts large, well-proportioned accommodation arranged over two floors. The owners of this individual modern home have further improved the property in recent years having upgraded the spacious family kitchen/breakfast room and added the orangery/garden room to the rear. They have also replaced, as examples, to a high standard, almost all of the windows and doors and had a new efficient boiler and a new water softener fitted. The accommodation comprises, in brief: A storm porch, that gives access to the generous sized reception hall which leads to most of the ground floor accommodation and the stairs. The sitting room features a high bressumer beamed fireplace with exposed brick work and pamment tiled hearth, with inset log burning stove. The dining room (currently used by the owners as their office) is conveniently accessed from both the kitchen and the hallway. The accommodation flows well with alternative access from the hall to the kitchen, bypassing the dining room, via the breakfast room to the rear which, like the snug, has doors opening to the back garden. The snug, which could also be utilised as a study, benefits from a fireplace with inset log burning stove, making it a very cosy room. The large family kitchen has a tiled floor, which extends through to the breakfast room, utility and garden room to the rear. It is superbly fitted with a range of base and eye level timber fronted units with ceramic sink inset into the polished work surface, a central island/breakfast bar and a range style electric cooker with extractor hood above. The garden room/Orangery opens to the rear via French doors and affords a comfortable space to appreciate the garden and views beyond, that are such a feature of the property. The utility/boiler room provides further work surface space and storage with an inset sink and space and plumbing for automatic appliances. Off the first-floor landing is a spacious airing cupboard housing the hot water tank, and there is a loft access hatch, with ladder. There are five family suitable bedrooms and two well-presented modern bath/shower rooms, one of which could be easily used as an en-suite to the master bedroom, if preferred, with the relocation of a door on the landing. OUTSIDE To the front, the property is approached through a gated entrance over a mainly gravelled tarmac driveway with spacious turning circle and parking area for several vehicles, which also gives access to the detached triple garage, which has up and over doors to the front and a personal door to the side. The gardens extend in all to around 0.62 of an acre, being principally laid to lawn with a paved terrace leading from the back of the property and a landscaped path to a 2nd terrace to the rear. There are hedged front and rear boundaries with a garden shed to the side of the house, a new greenhouse, raised vegetable beds and several fruit trees, as well as a beautiful oak tree. LOCATION The property is well positioned in this rural location, with excellent access to a network of rural countryside footpaths, within this active local community which is centred around the thriving village hall; with neighbouring villages offering a good range of everyday facilities including a post office shop and primary school in Rougham, post office shops in Felsham and Sicklesmere and popular public houses in many of the surrounding villages.
