General information


The village of Melton has good facilities including a Montessori School, Day Nursery, Primary School, Butcher's Shop, Railway Station, a Pub which serves food as well as a Garage, Recreation Ground etc. Woodbridge, the nearest large town, is also located on the west bank of the River Deben, a stretch of tidal water much enjoyed by those who sail and row with a delightful walk along the riverbank for the less energetic. The proximity of the Ufford

Park Hotel Golf & Leisure Complex is a further attraction of the location. Woodbridge has schools for students of all ages and like Melton also has a Railway Station with some direct services running through to London's Liverpool Street Station. There are more frequent connections available from Ipswich, Suffolk's county town, which is about eight miles to the south west of Woodbridge. 22 Garrod Approach is an ideal family house and the communal areas at Melton Park including the footways and open spaces are looked after by a Management Company for which an annual service charge is made to the owners of properties on the development.

The property

The house forms part of an impressive development undertaken by Hopkins Homes in the grounds of St Audry's Hospital where some of the Victorian and earlier buildings were converted into individual homes and new houses constructed within mature parklike surroundings. The impressive approach to the development is via a road which bisects the nine hole golf course.

22 Garrod Approach has a pleasing appearance with part brick and part rendered and painted elevations beneath a tiled roof with a Double Garage set to one side of the gravelled parking area. The property has very well planned accommodation arranged over three floors. On the ground floor the Hall gives access to a well proportioned Sitting Room, a Cloakroom, a Study, a Kitchen-Dining Room as well as a Utility Room. On the first floor the Main Bedroom Suite has a Dressing Area and En-Suite Shower Room and there are two further Bedrooms on this level, one of which is En-Suite, the other served by the first of the Family Bathrooms. On the second floor there are two good Bedrooms and a further Bathroom.

The outside

Outside the house benefits from an attractively landscaped garden, the main area being to the rear of the property where there is a mix of paving, grass, gravel, pergolas and traditional planting. The garden area in front of the house is relatively simple, the two lawns bisected by the path to the front door enhanced by the cherry tree and silver birch.

The approach to the property is by a crescent shaped sweep leading off Garrod Approach which serves this and the two adjoining houses each with their own independent access. There is a gravelled parking area beside the Garage, a paved path with lavender bushes leading up to the front door, lawns on either side, a silver birch and a cherry tree. There is a gate and path on one side of the house with a timber and felt roof shed close by. A path continues round to a terrace spanning the width of the property with space for alfresco dining outside the French doors of the Sitting Room.

The garden has been landscaped on slightly differing levels with paving and gravel, climbing plants to the pergolas, a shaped paved area backed in timber, a lawn, flower and shrub borders. There is a field beyond the rear garden. The double garage is of brick construction beneath a slate roof. There are two up and over doors, concrete floor and light and power are connected. Boarded storage above.
