THEBARN Four bedroom home set centrally on a good sized plot on the edge of the village of Elmswell. This home offers a wealth of character with beams throughout as well as well proportioned accommodation for all the family.
LOCATION Elmswell is a popular and well served village lying some eight miles to the east of Bury St. Edmunds and just to the north of the A14 dual carriageway which provides fast access to Ipswich, the East Coast, Bury St. Edmunds, Cambridge, the Midlands and London via the M11. Local amenities include supermarket, pharmacy, vets, fish and chip shop, Chinese, two hairdressers, library, Post Office, primary school, public houses, parish church and railway station. An Intercity rail service operates from Stowmarket about six miles away.
SELLERSINSIGHT We originally fell in love with this home because it has so much character and is so individual with masses of potential too! We love being situated just on the edge of a thriving village yet also being able to enjoy the country lifestyle we sought.
We have a well-stocked, mature garden which provides plenty of privacy at the rear and the cottage garden at the front is beautiful in the summer months.
The property was originally the village stables for the saddle makers and there is believed to be a 40ft well in the front garden. It has since been sympathetically converted and provides a warm and welcome home for all the family.
STEPINSIDE Enter into an entrance porch which provides space for removing muddy shoes and coats and which leads through to an open plan room at the heart of the home which is currently used as the dining room. This space has impressive vaulted ceilings, exposed timbers and leads to both the living room and kitchen. The living room has front aspect and an exposed brick feature wall with multi fuel burning stove. The kitchen benefits from garden views and has a ceramic tiled floor and integrated fridge freezer, ovens, hob and dishwasher. A door leads through to the utility room with stable door to the rear and a built in storage cupboard. A study is tucked away accessible through the utility and is a spacious, light room to work from with its dual aspect. Off the dining room is a large conservatory at the rear of the property which provides additional living space and is a lovely warm room during the summer months.
An inner hall leads to the bedroom accommodation. The master bedroom is an impressive size room with dual aspect and ample fitted storage and exposed beams. There is a hand basin in the room and potential for an en suite to be installed. There are three further bedrooms off the hall and a family bathroom and separate cloakroom.
The property has Calor gas central heating.
STEPOUTSIDE The front of the home is set back from the lane with a large green frontage and a gravel driveway providing ample off road parking to the right hand side. A number of shrubs and plants line the footpath to the front door and there is a well set at the front of the house.
At the rear there is a large patio, perfect for al fresco dining and the rest of the garden is laid to lawn with a few mature shrubs and trees towards the rear providing a great deal of privacy.
