PROPERTY DESCRIPTION Set on high ground amidst open farmland, this three/four-bedroom (one en-suite) chalet-style property offers an enviable setting on the periphery off the ever-popular South Suffolk village of Hintlesham, conveniently located for the market town of Ipswich and Hadleigh. Offering an accommodation schedule of approximately 2,250 sq ft arranged over two floors, the property has undergone recent works and improvement by the current owners to create a well-presented, yet adaptable family home of impressive proportions throughout. In its current form, the property is arranged via three ground-floor reception rooms although offers ample scope for ground-floor bedroom accommodation if so required with notable features including UPVC double-glazing and French windows, stripped wood-effect flooring, a brick fireplace with inset wood burning stove, spotlights, oak staircase and a bespoke, granite topped kitchen/breakfast room by Anglia Factors. The property also lends itself to further increase the existing footprint via a side and/or rear extension (subject to the necessary planning consents). Enjoying an idyllic setting, the property offers considerable privacy and tranquillity with further benefits including a detached double garage with substantial store to rear, ample private off-street parking and established gardens with a total plot size of approximately one acre.
