General information Pond House is an exceptional family home dating back to the Georgian era which, despite its' many period features, is fortuitously not listed. The property is beautifully presented throughout with a pleasing layout which is ideal for entertaining and family living. The current owners have carried out many improvements in recent years which has included decorating throughout, extending to provide a large utility/boot room as well as a wonderful kitchen extension.  At the same time as extending we understand they put in a new heating system and a gas-fired boiler.

The kitchen/dining/family room now provides the hub of the home with an open plan dining/sitting area and two sets of bi-folding doors opening onto the garden; the kitchen is attractively fitted with solid wood bespoke Orwell Pine and Debenvale units, integral appliances including a built-in oven, microwave and hob, a gas-converted Aga, wooden and granite worksurfaces as well as a walk-in pantry cupboard. All the ground floor rooms radiate from the central reception hall including the sitting room with a woodburner and a snug/playroom/office. 

On the first floor there are four double bedrooms all of which have recently fitted ensuites including two bathrooms and two shower rooms.  The master bedroom also has an ensuite dressing room and there are plenty of built-in wardrobes/cupboards throughout the house.

 

Further accommodation is provided by a stunning vaulted annexe over the garage and carport.  This comprises a spacious open-plan sitting/dining room and kitchen with a double bedroom and ensuite shower room beyond.  Whilst the annexe can provide useful additional rental income, it is also ideal for overflow guest accommodation or as a luxurious home working space. 

There is also a superb contemporary home office in the rear garden with bi-folding doors.

Outside The gravelled driveway has electronic gates leading to the parking courtyard giving access to the large garage with two open bays and two lock-up garages.  The grounds of about 0.6 acres (sts) form a special feature and Pond House sits centrally within the plot.  The front garden is laid to lawn with flower and shrub borders, a variety of trees as well as a shallow pond.  A gravelled terrace area adjoins the south facing front façade with a beautiful mature wisteria and climbing roses. 

To the rear is a flagstoned barbeque terrace and an expanse of lawn bordered by a fine selection of trees including oak and walnut.  This area could also serve as a small paddock area for goats, chickens etc but is currently ideal as a securely fenced large garden for children and dogs.

Location Bucklesham is situated about 7.5 miles from Woodbridge and about 8 miles from Ipswich. It is a popular and conveniently situated village surrounded by farmland with amenities including a school, church, village hall and The Shannon pub. Notably the village with the birthplace and home of Basil Brown who discovered and excavated Sutton Hoo in 1939. There is easy access onto the A12 and A14.
