General information This attractive individual architect designed house has a wonderful secluded location in small hamlet, situated on high ground between Sudbury and Long Melford.

The house has been designed to take maximum impact of the lovely Stour Valley views and its attractive quarter of an acre plot.

The entry to the house is by way of the beautiful light atrium/double height reception hall leading into the dining room, which doubles as an inner reception hall and provides direct access to the majority of the ground floor accommodation and which has a woodburner stove and wood grain laminate flooring. The kitchen has recently been refitted with laminate flooring, and a new range of fitted worksurfaces and units with space for built in refrigerator and dishwasher, there are double doors leading into the larger of the two conservatories which doubles as a breakfast area from which there are beautiful views out across the attractive garden to the rear.

The whole of the first floor is laid out as a spacious flexible living room with a central double sided woodburner stove and large picture windows giving views out across surrounding countryside and the garden. To one corner is a large storage area and shower room and it would be a simple matter to create a master suite in part of this space, if required (subject to the necessary consents).
