This unique house offers flexible family accommodation in a peaceful yet conveniently placed area of the town. It would benefit from some updating, particularly to the kitchen and bathroom. Built, we understand, in 1923, this detached property includes ancillary accommodation which comprises a utility area on the ground floor, a sitting room, bedroom and bathroom on the first floor. The house has a wonderful kitchen/diner which forms an L shape and includes French windows onto the garden terrace. There are stripped pine floors and painted units providing storage space and plumbing for a dishwasher. The sitting room is a light and bright room with a gas fire set in an attractive composite stone fireplace and with French windows leading to the garden. There are views across the rear garden towards Mildenhall. There are two ground floor bedrooms and a cloakroom and two further reception rooms; one a study and the other a dining room with double doors which lead back to the kitchen/diner. Upstairs are 2 further bedrooms both with plenty of built in storage and a family bathroom with a feature corner bath as well as an en suite to the main bedroom.

To the front of the property is a gravelled driveway with parking and a garden of grass, flower beds and borders incorporating a herb garden and paths leading to the side. To the rear is an area of decking and steps leading down to the lawn. The rear garden has borders of mature beech hedging, shrubs and trees. There are fruit trees including cherry and apple as well as a mature Virginia creeper and honeysuckle.
