General information Situated on the northern side of Ipswich, a short walk from Christchurch Park and Ipswich School, is this individual architect designed family home offering split level accommodation which would benefit from modernisation. The original design lends itself to creating a contemporary residence designed around the central staircase with a 19'6" high vaulted ceiling and skylight. It has upvc glazing, gas central heating (not tested), enjoys a westerly facing garden and has a garage along with an abundance of parking.

The entrance porch has a quarry-tiled floor, glazed door and side panels to the front and similar to the reception hall which opens on to the stairwell, there is oak flooring, built-in cupboard, stairs to the first level and doors off. There is a study with box bay window to the side and sitting room with picture window to the rear overlooking the garden, open fireplace with brick surround and hearth. This opens on to a conservatory which is upvc glazed to the side and rear with a door to the garden.

A few steps up from the hall leads to a half landing with a large window to the rear, stairs up to the next level and doors off. The shower room has a window to the front and a suite of shower, basin and WC and an open archway leads to the dining room which has a picture window overlooking the rear garden, a gas fire and built-in cupboards. Adjacent is the kitchen with window to the front, a range of oak fronted base and eye-level units, worktops, sink, slot-in cooker, plumbing for a dishwasher, shelving and serving hatch to the dining room, gas boiler and pantry. A door off leads to the side lobby which could make a utility room and has a window and door to the front, tiled floor and door to the rear garden.

The third level leads to bedrooms one, three and five with stairs rising to a fourth level and doors off. Bedroom one is of good proportion with windows to two aspects and an en-suite wet room with window to the side, a Dutch floor with shower over, basin and WC with built-in cupboards and drawers and a heated chrome towel rail. Bedroom three overlooks the front and bedroom five has a window to the side.

The top landing leads to two further bedrooms, one at the front and one at the rear. Bedroom four has a built-in shower cubicle and there is a bathroom with coloured suite of bath and basin whilst adjacent is a separate WC with coloured low-level suite. There is also an airing cupboard on this floor.
