THE RESIDENCE  Last sold in 1987 the residence dates from the 1930’s and is a deceptively large property. On first appearance it seems to be a single-storey bungalow, however it is actually arranged over 3 floors, being of brick construction with rendered elevations under a peg tiled roof, with 4 ornate chimneys. It offers elegant accommodation with the benefit of gas-fired central heating and double-glazed sealed units. All but one of the living accommodation rooms is on the ground floor, however it has 3 lower-ground floor rooms at present used as a hobby workshop which is ideal for further living accommodation if so desired. Large double glazed windows result in a very light interior, offering pleasing views in all directions across secluded mature gardens at the rear of the property. Exiting the living room through French doors there is an inviting terrace with steps leading down to the garden. The accommodation is arranged as follows

OUTSIDE

The property has a decorative brick wall at the front and is set back from a private road that is well maintained. The entrance leads to a front garden with a paved drive providing additional parking space. The front garden has a lawn surrounded by established hedges and trees. On the south side there is space for a garage, subject to planning permission. Each side of the residence access leads to the rear of the property where there is a large secluded garden which includes a 12’ x 14’ garden shed. This is a unique “park like” garden enclosed by a wall, fencing, conifers, and an established yew hedge. It includes outstanding rock features and views and a delightful balustrade-surrounded raised terrace leading out from the house covered with a long established wisteria. The whole provides colour and interest throughout the year and is arguably one of the most exceptional private gardens in Ipswich. It amounts in all to about 2/3rds acre (subject to survey)
