Of particular note are the four bedrooms one of which is en-suite though all four could accommodate a double bed if needed.

Set well back from the road on a quiet country lane on the outskirts of this ever popular Suffolk village is this substantial, recently extended detached family house. Having been recently refurbished by the current owners to a high standard, the property now offers extensive and free flowing living accommodation arranged over two floors. The refurbishment has seen the addition of the conservatory with views over the rear garden and facing predominately south-west. Another beneficial alteration has been the conversion of the former single garage to what is now an office/ground floor bedroom. Planning permission has also been granted for the erection of a detached triple cart lodge with additional room above. Other notable features include four first floor double bedrooms and two stylishly re-fitted bathrooms (one of which with en-suite).
