This five bedroom family home offers staggered accommodation arranged over four levels, set in a gently sloping 3.86 acre plot of which an acre is fenced garden, the rest being natural grassland, a wild flower meadow and woodland habitats, home to abundant wildlife. Built in 1974 to take full advantage of the outstanding views, the property has been finished to a high standard and has proven to be a perfect family home. Situated in the quiet outskirts of Witnesham, it benefits from a highly secluded countryside location whilst retaining easy access to nearby amenities, including independent and comprehensive schools, two pubs within walking distance, and close proximity to both Ipswich and Woodbridge town centres. Local Area The historic village of Witnesham, first recorded in the Domesday book, is located within fifteen minutes of both Ipswich and Woodbridge. Witnesham itself is home to both a pre-school and Witnesham Primary School, only a short drive from the property, with a school bus to Claydon High School from the end of the lane. Alternatively, Ipswich School, Woodbridge School, St. Joseph’s College and Ipswich High School for Girls are all within easy driving distance, The area is also home to two dog-friendly pubs within strolling distance, with good food and outside space. Located in the Fynn Valley, the property has frontage to the River Fynn along its south-western boundary by the woodland area of the garden. The gardens and house overlook mature mixed deciduous woodland and fields, enjoying far-reaching lovely views all year round, and excellent walks in the local area. Rooms With A View The property is approached by a sweeping gravel driveway to the front of the house, providing parking for several vehicles. A brick paved area with open recessed porch and double front doors leads to a spacious entrance hall, with French doors and windows allowing unrestricted views across the valley and opening to a paved terrace with broad steps down to the swimming pool area.

On the left of the hallway is a shower room, beyond which steps lead to the upper hall with access to the side garden and door to the master suite, with triple aspect windows overlooking the valley, dressing room

and spacious en suite bathroom. Also on this level are two further double bedrooms, each with built in double and single wardrobes, a single bedroom with deep alcove for additional storage, the family bathroom and a generous airing cupboard with insulated hot water tank. Off the main entrance hall there is another double bedroom with en suite shower room, and beyond it an archway leads to an inner hall, with door to the kitchen and double doors opening to the main living area. The double aspect dining room with patio doors to the terrace and floor to ceiling windows leads down wide steps to the vaulted sitting room with a cosy wood burner and large South-East and South-West facing windows taking full advantage of the views, making it an excellent space throughout the seasons. Both the dining room and sitting room feature fine pine boarded ceilings, adding warmth to the bright and well-proportioned rooms.

From the sitting room a wrought iron and timber tread spiral staircase leads down to the lower ground floor lobby, with door to the study and double doors to the garden room which would also work well as an additional bedroom. This room, with an external door leading to the pool and a small formal garden area, offers floor to ceiling windows, a storage cupboard and an adjoining W/C, making it a very useful asset in the summer when the pool is in use.

Accessed from the both the dining room and the hall, the fully fitted oak shaker kitchen features a comprehensive range of Seimens and Bosch integrated appliances, a double bowl sink with waste disposal unit and is open to the breakfast room with patio doors leading on to a raised deck with views across the valley and steps down to a small enclosed garden area with flowering shrubs and a gate leading to the main area of garden.

The utility room off the kitchen has a raised integrated dishwasher, one and a half bowl sink with waste disposal unit and plenty of storage, and leads to the boot room with door to the front and further storage as well as an integrated Miele freezer and ample space for a washing machine and tumble dryer. Adjoining the boot room is the double garage with two up and over doors, and a large workshop area with sink, cupboards and door to the rear.

Rural Accessibility The 3.86 acre plot offers several distinct outdoor spaces, including the extensively landscaped front garden with low maintenance raised sleeper beds, to the right of which is a large lawn with mature birch and maple trees, and on the far side a small young orchard of pear, apple, plum and cherry trees as well as an old Bramley apple tree, a crab apple and wild plum, and a 14’ x 10’ field shelter, currently used as a log store. The raised deck off the breakfast room offers lovely elevated views over the garden and countryside. In fine weather it makes an excellent outdoor dining and barbecue area close to the kitchen, a great place to entertain guests or enjoy breakfast in the morning. Off the entrance hall, the French doors lead out to the terrace, a lovely place to sit and enjoy the views, with wide paved steps leading down to the pool and patio area, another great space for entertaining friends and family where the current owners spend much of their time during summer. The chlorinated 30’ x 15’ pool is heated by a Calorex air source heat pump, much of which is powered by the solar panels on the roof of the property, which produce up to 4kw during the summer months and attract the higher rate of feed-in tariff. The swimming pool is accessed by a built in step unit, making it easy to get in and out, and providing a comfortable place to sit in the water and enjoy the sun. There are lights in the patio area, as well as a power supply in the plant cupboard housing the heating and filtration systems.

Beyond the fully rabbit-fenced acre of gardens in which the house sits, a gate near the field shelter leads down through the wildflower meadow where you might see an orchid amongst the other plants, to the grass and woodland bordering the pretty stream, criss-crossed by paths made by a wealth of wildlife including foxes, deer, badgers and rabbits. A breeding pair of buzzards raise their young every year in the woodland, along with tawny owls and egrets and a visiting heron who likes to fish in next-door’s pond. There is over 200 metres of river frontage, and much of that area is left untouched to provide rich habitat, a wonderful place to stroll under the trees at any time of year and listen to the birdsong.
