- Double Garage
A spacious and beautifully presented 5-bedroom family home occupying a peaceful cul-de-sac setting with a delightful and secure garden, just a few minutes walk from local schools and the centre of the popular market town of Sudbury.
Scofield Court is a charming and much-favoured cul-de-sac of just seven individual detached houses. The property is set at the centre of a generous corner plot with a beautiful established garden, double garage and an extensive area for the off-road parking of several vehicles; a versatile space which could easily be laid to lawn or become a vegetable garden.
The house is traditionally built with brick and rendered elevations under a tiled roof with uPVC double-glazed windows and a superb conservatory. The present owners have overseen a complete internal upgrade, with new flooring, solid oak doors throughout, fitted-kitchen, contemporary bathroom with whirlpool bath, en-suite shower room and downstairs cloakroom. In addition, the gardens have been professionally landscaped and now offer a superb balance of lawn with colour-filled borders and wrap-around flagstone paved terrace for family dining or entertaining.
