This well-appointed and versatile extended family home boasts a larger-than-average, enclosed rear garden and many desirable features including a study, integral single garage and en-suite master bedroom. The property boasts double glazing throughout, alongside recently refurbished kitchen and bathrooms, new flooring, electrics, boiler and loft insulation, all within a short walk of the centre of the delightful Suffolk market town of Framlingham.
In addition, the property has had its guttering and facias replaced. A ground floor extension has provided this delightful family home with three further rooms, and 4KW solar PV panels have been installed reducing monthly energy costs.
Under the original government incentive scheme (Feed In Tariff payments) these currently bring in £1500 a year index linked and tax free until summer 2036 plus offset electricity charges by typically another £200 a year. Optionally the remaining FITs payments may be exchanged for an upfront lump sum of approx £11000 as of Oct2020.
The front door opens onto a glazed porch area ideal for storing outdoor shoes and coats with an internal door from here leading to a reception hall. Stairs to the left rise to the first floor, leading to the house bathroom as well as two double and two single bedrooms including the master with its own en-suite shower room.
Back on the ground floor, a door immediately to the right of the hallway opens onto the downstairs WC and another ahead to the main central lounge which adjoins the dining room - creating a large, L-shaped living space offering access to the rear garden.
The downstairs cloakroom features a dual-flush WC, alongside a drop-in hand basin set within a double doored vanity unit.

A second internal door from the lounge area also leads to Bedroom 5, currently equipped as a study, while the extended dining area is located through a wide, open arch.

The smart and relatively modern brick-built home sits back from Tudor Close and is fronted by a flagstone and asphalt drive offering off-street parking for at least two vehicles and leading to an integral single garage with an up-and-over door.
The main door to the house is within a centrally-located porch fronted by a lawn. Established shrubs to the left separate the grassed area from a concrete path leading to a head-high timber gate, which allows access to the rear of the house.
Here, a path leads past a wheelie bin store to another lawn, stretching around two sides of the property and enclosed by head-high timber fence panels offering privacy from neighbouring homes. The rear garden also benefits from shade and variety offered by mature trees and includes a timber childrens wendy house, adjoined by a sandpit surrounded by hard-wearing matting.
Theres also a second timber shed for storage while older members of the family can enjoy the private open space by relaxing on the stone-flagged patio, accessed directly via double doors from the dining room in the rear extension.
Access to the rear garden is also possible via an external door from the kitchen while additional exterior features include a base for a rotary clothes line and an outside tap.
16' x 10' (15 sq mtrs).
Previously used for a variety of purposes including as a gym, for housing a hot tub and as an outdoor office, the property's generous exterior summerhouse could offer the ideal 'work from home' studio/workshop opportunity.
