PROPERTY DESCRIPTION: Positioned at the foot of a single-track lane and hidden from view whilst enjoying a central village location is an individual three-bedroom (one en-suite) detached split level property set in extensive grounds of approximately four acres. Positioned within the much sought-after South Suffolk village of Polstead, the property lies within the village conservation area and the Dedham Vale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is being offered to the market for only the second time since its construction in the 1970s. A hugely adaptable, extensive property of impressive proportions, the property is arranged via a particularly distinctive split level dual aspect sitting/dining room with fireplace, French doors and exceptional ceiling heights. Offering considerable scope for further improvement, adaption and extension beyond the existing footprint, the property was granted planning permission in 2002 for the insertion of three dormer windows to the south-west elevation offering potential for further bedroom and bathroom accommodation to the substantial loft space. Further benefits to the property include a detached double garage, ample private parking and mature, densely bordered grounds enjoying exceptional undulation with views towards the parish of Stoke by Nayland.
