This beautifully renovated detached 5 bedroom Edwardian house is immaculate providing ample living space and well appointed bedrooms with en suite bathrooms. The large sunny garden has entertaining space and many other areas with lots of natural planting to attract wildlife. There is a private parking area for three cars.
The location is perfect for access to the Suffolk Heritage Coast beaches and nature reserves and it is only 7 minutes from Saxmundham mainline railway station with London Liverpool Street 2 hours by train. Leiston is a small but very friendly and vibrant town with shops and cafes only a short stroll away. The bigger Tesco and Waitrose supermarkets are less than 10 minutes by car.
This home has flexible accommodation. There is potential to finish the attic conversion or to have a downstairs bedroom with en suite for a relative. Alternatively new owners could re-instate the front drawing room with it's bay window and working fireplace (which is currently a guest kitchen - see below) to create more living space for a large family home.
The house and gardens have undergone an extensive programme of renovation recently including wiring, plumbing, heating and a solar thermal panel (RHI £300 per annum). There are new drains, mains water supply and plumbing ready for a water softener.
Most of the windows have been replaced with new double-glazed wooden sashes that keep the beauty of the era but provide the insulation required for a modern dwelling. The cavity walls are now filled with insulation and there is a modern convection wood burning stove in the lounge.
Planning permission was granted for a double garage in April 2011. The whole house has been completely redecorated in pale or neutral tones and is ready to move in. There is the added bonus of a garden room fitted with electricity supply, fibre broadband and water supply available for many different uses.
This house has been run as a 'Lodgings' business for the past 5 years. It can be arranged with separate owner accommodation plus 4 letting bedrooms providing a 'lifestyle business' with good income requiring much less input than a B and B! Full fire regs have been complied with and a website is running well. Fixtures and fittings would be negotiable if a purchaser was interested.
(Please note there is a small building project in progress next door. No windows will overlook this home or garden and it is due to be completed in the next few weeks)
