CEDARSHOUSE With origins dating back to the 19th century this property has been remodelled in more recent years, to create a substantial and particularly impressive Victorian house displaying a plethora of high quality and original features such and light wells and bread ovens, grounds and gardens in excess of half an acre.
LOCATION Thurston is a sought after village and a parish in Suffolk situated approximately four miles east of Bury St Edmunds and 10 miles west of Stowmarket. There are good local village amenities including primary school, well regarded community college, a lovely old church, two public houses, post office, general store, butchers, hairdressers and recreation ground.
SELLERSINSIGHT It has continued to evolve over the years and will continue to evolve into anything you want it to be. Its been a very happy family house and we will miss it greatly. My personal thoughts on the house is I feel I have saved it (others wanted to pull half of it down and turn it into flats when we were trying to buy it) and I feel I have just been a guardian to it and have left it in a much better state than how I found it, so hopefully others can enjoy it as much as we have for many years to come".
STEPINSIDE The entrance hall at this home is a grand space for greeting guests with wooden panelling and parquet flooring. To the left hand side with dual aspect is the drawing room with Georgian features. It is a large square room with two sash windows and log burner with brick surround. Across the hall is a study with front aspect and bay window creating a peaceful and light room to work from. A downstairs wet room with walk in shower and underfloor heating is located centrally off the hall along with access to the cellar which is made up of two dry rooms and an original bread oven behind the door. A cosy sitting room is located further down the hall and is also accessible via the original 'tradesmen entrance' where there is a porch and hallway leading up the back stairs. The sitting room has a wealth of original features as this is the oldest part of the property including cut outs where there would have been candles and a hatch which is believed to have looked through to where the animals were kept. There is a well in the kitchen which has been exposed with a glass top to make a stunning feature. The kitchen features Rangemaster and space for a fridge/freezer and has easy to clean stone flooring throughout. It extends round to a further preparation space with grey tiled flooring and a peninsula with granite worktop from where there is also access to the rear decking. A separate utility room provides ample storage space and space for a further fridge/freezer. The conservatory is a spectacular unique addition to the home and is an extremely versatile space, currently used as a living/dining/games room with a laundry room and downstairs cloakroom set at the far end. The dining room is located at the heart of the home, central to the rest of the downstairs accommodation and is a grand room to host dinner parties in with its high ceilings and open fireplace.
Two further reception rooms with their own hallway could create a separate annexe space with potential to have its own porch and entrance and also for a separate kitchen to be fitted with plumbing which is already in place.
Upstairs the accommodation is split off of four wings. The master room has dual aspect and an open fireplace as well as sash windows and a grand opening to the en suite bathroom which has a freestanding bath, low level wc, bidet, his and hers basins, heated towel rail and stunning views across the fields. Just across the hall from here are two further rooms which could create a perfect dressing room and a nursery room for a young family. The guest room has rear aspect and a further bedroom has a deep walk in wardrobe. These rooms share use of a bathroom with separate shower unit via jack and jill doors. A further wing leads to another bedroom with rear aspect and log burner in site and has a walk through dressing room with fitted wardrobes which also continues to an en suite bathroom. The fourth wing is also accessible from the back stairs and leads to two linked bedrooms with a bathroom between.
STEPOUTSIDE The front of the property is set back from the road with a large gravel driveway providing ample parking space for a large number of vehicles. The main entrance to the home is a grand feature with a Georgian style pillar canopy set centrally on the front façade.
A side entrance to the home as well as provision for a third at the far right hand side makes the home extremely versatile and allows for separate access to a potential self-contained annexe if one chose to create this.
At the rear there is a large decking which stretches across the rear of the property creating a perfect space for entertaining or for al fresco dining. The majority of the garden is laid to lawn with a shed housing the biomass boiler and another log cabin ideal for playhouse or peaceful office. Read less
