Cranes Hill is a wonderful five bedroom detached family home set within grounds extending to about three acres (sts) benefitting from stunning views over the neighbouring countryside towards the River Deben.

About the Property
The property was built in 1972 and extended in 2009 to provide a modern open plan kitchen/dining/family room with glazed internal doors leading from the reception hall and glazed doors opening to the elevated terrace.

Arranged over two floors the accommodation comprises: porch, entrance hall, cloakroom, music room (potential ground floor bedroom), sitting room, dining room, walk through study area, reception hall with galleried landing and wood burning stove providing a link between the hall and the kitchen/dining/family room, utility room, laundry room and WC. The sitting room features a corner window, doors opening to the elevated terrace and sliding interconnecting doors opening to the dining room. The kitchen/dining/family room features a bespoke, handmade fitted kitchen with hardwood and granite work surfaces.

A staircase rises from the hall to the first floor galleried landing providing access to five double bedrooms, a family bathroom with bath and separate shower, two storage cupboards, a walk in airing cupboard housing a thermal store (served by the oil fired central heating boiler, wood burner and PV panels – we are advised that there is plumbing for solar panels but they would need to be sourced and fitted) and walk in loft storage that may offer further potential subject to the necessary consents. The master bedroom features a balcony with glazed balustrades, built in wardrobes and an en-suite shower room and the second bedroom benefits from an en-suite bathroom with a shower bath.

Viewing is essential to appreciate the flexible family accommodation and the stunning views from the house over the neighbouring countryside.

About the Area
Easton is a picturesque village which has its own vernacular architecture and is renowned for its crinkle crankle wall, which is thought to be one of the longest in the country. The village was formerly the focal point of the Duke of Hamilton's Estate. The village has a public house called The White Horse, primary school, cricket club, Easton Farm Park and is also home to the Easton Harriers. Easton is easily accessible to Framlingham (approximately 3 miles), Wickham Market (approximately 2 miles) and Woodbridge (approximately 9 miles), all of which provide a wide range of local shops and commercial facilities. Easton is easily accessible from London with rail services from nearby Campsea Ashe Station to London's Liverpool Street Station, via Woodbridge and Ipswich.

From the Fine & Country Woodbridge office located on Church Street in Woodbridge, proceed onto Market Hill, turning right in front of The Kings Head pub. Turn left onto Burkitt Road, bearing left onto Grundisburgh Road. Take the third exit at the roundabout onto the A12. Follow the A12 towards Wickham Market and Easton. Take the exit off the A12 towards Framlingham/Lower Hacheston. Turn left at the junction and proceed straight over the roundabout. Take the next left onto Easton Lane. Follow Easton Lane and turn right at the T-junction. The property is located on the left hand side of the road before entering the village of Easton but cannot be seen from the road. Turn left just in front of a small patch of pampas grass, and then proceed straight ahead along the drive between the hedge and the fence, this will bend around to the left and leads to the property.

Agent's Notes
The oil tank is located to the rear of the garage.

We are advised that the thermal store can be heated by the wood burning stove in the reception hall, and the PV (photo-volteric) panels in the summer to reduce energy costs.

The property was not due to be marketed and there are a number of jobs that the vendor was in the process of finishing off prior to marketing, however, it has been released early now that they have found a property that they wish to purchase.

We are advised by the vendors that mains electricity and water are connected. The property benefits from oil-fired central heating (underfloor heating within the kitchen/dining/family area and utility room and radiators throughout the property) and private drainage via a cesspit with soakaways in the field. The vendors have advised us that the PV panels are due to generate an income of £30,000 over the remaining 15 years and that the sum is index-linked. Further details can be provided upon request.
