4 Bedroom Detached Bungalow Sold
Foxgloves has been vastly improved by our clients over recent years to provide a modern, well-appointed family home that marries well with its superb plot and location.
Improvements include a new kitchen/breakfast room, two new bathrooms, a total internal redecoration, a new roof, new gutters, facias and soffits, new external cladding, the addition of solar panels (with income), new windows and doors, a log burner in the sitting room and new radiators.
The property is nicely sited in the centre of a half-acre plot which includes substantial amounts of parking to the front plus a delightful, private rear garden. To the front there are some pleasant rural views over undulating Suffolk countryside.
As the floorplan illustrates the accommodation commences with a welcoming, 19-foot reception hall which has a log burner and provides access to the sitting room, the kitchen and the hallway leading to the bedrooms.
The 35-foot, open-plan sitting/dining room has windows facing three directions and is extremely light as a result. Its largest window has some good views to the south and it has an inset log burner to provide warmth during the winter months.
The kitchen has nice views into the garden and has been nicely appointed with black granite surfaces. Appliances include a Bosch oven and microwave, an induction hob with an extractor above, a dishwasher and a fridge freezer.
There are four bedrooms with one currently in use as a study. The master bedroom has a double wardrobe and its own sizeable en-suite with a walk-in cubicle shower. This, like the family bathroom, has been recently re-appointed by our clients with modern fittings and lighting.
OUTSIDE & OUTBUILDINGS
Attached to one end of the property there is a double width garage which has an electric door, a WC and a utility area. At the other end there is a two-bay car port.
As mentioned, the plot measures just over half-an-acre with the house being positioned perfectly at the centre. This means there is a large parking a turning area to the front for at least a dozen vehicles if needed as well as two paved parking areas to the front of the garage and car port.
The rear garden is well-established and well-maintained and includes a large area of lawn, a shed, a patio running the width of the rear of the house, fruit trees, a vegetable patch and a variety of shrubs, plants and perimeter hedging.
Foxgloves is one of the last properties found on Fen Lane, a quiet no-through road on the edge of the village of Hitcham. The village has a small shop and post office plus two churches.
There are several rural footpaths that commence within a few moment's walk from the front door including one that reaches the neighbouring village of Bildeston in less than a mile. Here buyers will find a larger shop, a primary school, a tennis club and two pubs including the locally renowned Bildeston Crown.
Nearby towns include Hadleigh (6-miles), Stowmarket (8-miles), Ipswich (15-miles) and Bury St Edmunds (15-miles).
