5 3

An individually designed residence within the sought after village of Lawshall. This stunning five bedroom property offers extremely spacious, versatile accommodation over two floors set in grounds of approximately one acre (stms). Set back from the road, this detached family home is beautifully presented throughout and an internal viewing is highly recommended. Easy access to the A14.

SELLER'S INSIGHT We purchased this property as we wanted to live in the country in a house large enough for us and our four children. With only one left at home we no longer need this amount of space. The property is a 'Farmhouse' design of approximately 4000 sq ft excluding the cart lodge which could be converted into further accommodation. We will miss this luxurious home with its magnificent views, the sunrise and sunsets over our south facing garden. There are some fabulous dog walks around the neighbouring farmland and village which we have thoroughly enjoyed. Our favourite rooms are the triple aspect lounge, the large kitchen with island, and the snug in the winter. We have already purchased our next property which is a project for us so very exciting! Lawshall is the second highest point in Suffolk so we have some superb far reaching views. We love the open aspect of the grounds, being in the quiet of the countryside with spectacular views and pretty walks.  

STEP INSIDE This magnificent home provides superb accommodation for the whole family. From the front door you step into a large entrance hall with a sweeping oak staircase to the first floor and doors leading to the sitting room, dining room, cloakroom, and kitchen/breakfast room. The sitting room is very generous and has fabulous views over the gardens. There are double doors into an equally spacious garden room with French doors leading out to the dining terrace and gardens. This attractive room enables the house and gardens to blend seamlessly together. The kitchen/breakfast room is of contemporary design with a feature island incorporating a breakfast bar and further storage. This elegant room has an abundance of wall and floor units with composite preparation surfaces over, a stainless steel sink and chrome mixer tap. There are integrated appliances including double side by side ovens; halogen hob; extractor fan; dishwasher; and microwave. The separate utility room has integrated fridge/freezer and washing machine, with a door leading to the side of the property. Leading on from the kitchen/breakfast room is a further reception room which has many different uses depending on what the family need. The dining room leads on from the kitchen and is a wonderful, spacious room with high quality oak storage units, and a coal effect wall hung fireplace. The large study can be accessed from here.
The first floor has a galleried landing with doors to all five sumptuous bedrooms and the family bathroom. The master suite is of generous proportions and boasts a walk-in wardrobe and full bathroom with a large shower and corner bath. Bedroom two also has an en-suite with shower, and built-in wardrobes. There are three further guest rooms, two with built-in wardrobes. The family bathroom comprises of a white suite with bath, separate shower, WC and hand basin.  

STEP OUTSIDE The property is approached via a private shingled driveway behind a wooden five bar gate providing ample parking. The drive extends behind the house where you will find a detached cart lodge with attached workshop that has power and light. The cart lodge could be easily converted to provide further accommodation if required. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn with hedging and post and rail fencing. There is a stunning dining terrace adjacent to the garden room, and there are magnificent countryside views to be enjoyed all set within approximately one acre (stms).
