This attractive three/four bedroom detached house is located in the vibrant town of Bury St Edmunds.

FOUNTAINS ROAD A charming three/four bedroom detached property on the desirable hospital side of Bury St Edmunds. Fountains Road is situated back from the Horringer Road with Bannatyne Health Club (formally Clarice House) to the south of this property behind tall mature trees.

South Facing rear garden with no properties over looking gives privacy and a great space for entertaining and relaxing.
Single garage and driveway with ample parking for two vehicles and a handy store to the front of the property.
SELLER'S INSIGHT We originally envisaged buying the property as our final "forever home" but our plans have since changed. We will miss all aspects of the property especially the front room which is a perfect, peaceful space for relaxing and were we not seeking being closer to family we would have no reason to leave. Since buying the house we have modernised the kitchen, put in a new boiler, replaced the front and patio doors as well as adding engineered wood floors and LED lighting throughout.
We love being close to town and can walk to work in 20 minutes while remaining in a quiet cul-de-sac within a similar walk to the town centre. Another virtue of the location is being close to the countryside but only five minutes drive to get to the A14 and we can walk around to the health club for lunch or the gym if we choose.
STEP INSIDE From the porch the spacious entrance hall creates a warm and welcoming reception area with door directly to the sitting from to the front of the property. The sitting room is glazed and retractable shutters to the front for floor to ceiling glazing should you desire. A modern and contemporary designed electric wall mounted fire is a focal point with space for multiple seat sofas. Across the hall is a downstairs shower room with luxury vinyl tiled floor which at one time served the bedroom which is now the front sitting room. The lounge/diner extension is situated alongside the kitchen and provides a versatile space for a multitude of functions with french doors out to the south facing rear garden and patio area.
The kitchen has been extensively remodelled and again provides a functional space for a variety of uses with a breakfast bar, large Range cooker, under counter butler style sink, utility area and fully tiled floor with quartz work surfaces. Should you wish it would serve as a kitchen/diner or kitchen/utility there is certainly the space available but no clear separation has been made by the current owners and utilities have been integrated into the kitchen instead.
On the first floor three good sized bedrooms are well served by a spacious family bathroom with separate corner shower and bath. All bedrooms have nice views over the garden to the rear or the green to the front of the property which creates a nice green outlook from all directions, especially appreciated because of the vicinity to the town. The third bedroom has access to a roof terrace above the sitting room which has a reinforced roof to allow walking access to the area.
STEP OUTSIDE The lawn and paved rear garden is of a south facing aspect and is fully enclosed with fencing and boarded to the rear by mature trees. There is a delightful terraced area suitable for outdoor dining and a large store to the front of the property. The single garage is suitable for one modest vehicle and is served with light and power.
