General information This architect designed house was constructed in the 1960's. The house is situated well-back from Swan Street with a sweeping gravel driveway providing plenty of parking and turning space alongside the house. The main areas of garden lie to the south and west of the property and there are wonderful views out across the rooftops of the village to the church. The house offers great scope for updating or extensions, subject to planning consent.

The sheltered front entrance door leads to the reception hall with access to internal fuel bunker and understairs cupboard. There is a doorway through to the large split-level, open-plan reception room with large picture windows, sliding patio doors onto the south-facing terrace and the good size sitting room with south-west aspect and open fireplace. Leading off the dining room is a spacious utility room/cloakroom. The kitchen also has lovely views to Boxford Church, has a range of fitted units and larder cupboard with fitted oven and hob. There is great scope for refurbishment and/or extension. An easy rising staircase leads to the first floor with a split-level landing, large west facing picture window with storage cupboards.

On the first floor there are three good size bedrooms, all with fitted wardrobe cupboards and lovely sunny southerly aspects. There is a family bathroom and separate WC.

There is a loft access hatch with fitted loft ladder and we understand that when the house was built it was designed to allow for the extension of a further bedroom within the roof space, if required (current building regulations would need to be checked).

The house was designed for the family who own it now and it has never been on the market before. It was designed by the renowned East Anglian Architect Eric Sandon who wrote the architectural reference book on Suffolk houses.

The design of the house with its feature steep-pitched tiled roof and prominent brick chimney stack pays reference to the local vernacular style without being a pastiche of the local buildings. Since it was originally built it has seen the installation of upvc double glazing.

The outside Alongside the house is a good size brick built garage measuring

21'9 x 9'10 with light and power connected and electronic up and over door. The garage is linked by a covered walkway to the main house providing sheltered access for the garage. There is an external boiler house housing the oil-fired central heating boiler.

The gardens and grounds are a real feature of the property being in such a central village location enclosed to the north by a mature shrubbery and a serpentine wall. The gravel drive, which leads up to the house and provides parking and turning, links around to the south side of the house where there is a paved terrace which looks out over a wide-sweep of lawn to the garden. The garden has been lightly managed for the benefit of wildlife and offers great scope for further development and planting.

At the rear of the property is a further serpentine wall beyond which is a further area of grass suitable for vegetables. Located within this area are two sheds, one with power and light.

Where? Boxford is an extremely sought-after village with a strong sense of community. There is a selection of shops and facilities, pubs, a highly-regarded primary school, doctor's surgery, butcher and good bus services linking to both Sudbury (7 miles) and Ipswich (14 miles). It provides an ideal location for people wishing to travel to London via Colchester Station (11 miles).

The village is surrounded by attractive countryside and the nearby Stoke-by-Nayland club offers 2 x 18 hole golf courses and a health and fitness club together with hotel facilities.
