Open day to be held on Sunday the 26th of June. Viewing by appointment only.
Why buy this home?
Set back from the road, this delightful bungalow home is accessed via a quiet slip road that offers extra parking if needed. At the front of the property is a number of small flower beds and a gravel driveway with space for multiple vehicles.
Stepping through the front porch, you enter to a spacious hallway with two bedrooms immediately to your left. The master bedroom, which is at the front of the property, is a large room with built in wardrobes and fantastic natural light. The second and third bedroom, the prior found further down the hallway, also both comfortably house double beds with space for storage. At the end of the hallway, next to the second bedroom, is the bathroom that was refitted in 2018.
The first door on the right takes you through to the lounge, a large room with great light, electric fireplace, and plenty of power outlets for TV's and speakers. The kitchen, accessed via the lounge or hallway, needs an update but has vast amounts of space for modernisation and could quite comfortably fit an island with a breakfast bar. There is potential for removing the wall that separates the lounge and kitchen for an open plan style.
From the rear door of the kitchen, you are taken to a small utility room that has access to the single garage from the rear. This room could be renovated to create an office or nursery space. Heading out towards the garden you find yourself in a deceptively large conservatory with beautiful views of the rear garden; a perfect place to sit, read a book and watch the sun go down.
The large West facing rear garden is wonderful quiet space with an array of trees, laid lawn and a pond that is currently home to several fish. To the right of the pond is a small amount of decking with room for outdoor dining in the summer and large shed for storage. At the end of the garden is an area that was purchased from the neighbours to create a private allotment with a greenhouse and workshop.
Thanks to its large plot and large rooms this bungalow has great potential for extension and modernisation. With a little investment and a touch of imagination this home truly could become a dream.
More about the location...
Ipswich is the oldest Anglo-Saxon town in England and has a rich heritage to explore; from maritime trade and Viking invasion to Royal connections, Cardinal Thomas Wolsey and the Industrial Revolution.
Throughout the town centre there are medieval churches, wonky Tudor houses and grand Victorian buildings, all with stories and secrets to discover. Marvel the Tudor grandeur of Christchurch Mansion, hear the world's oldest ring of bells at St Lawrence Church, search for the world's third oldest door at St Mary-le-Tower, wander the historic streets and visit the medieval pubs. Ipswich truly is steeped in history.
Bringing Ipswich up to date is the University of Suffolk on the stunning waterfront, part of Ipswich's Innovation Quarter. The level transformation in this area breath taking and thanks to the £25million that was awarded to Ipswich last year it looks as though it will continue. Alongside the quays are several restaurants and bars, the Salthouse Harbour Hotel, and marinas housing beautiful boats.
Ipswich is also home to many great schools at all levels from Castle Hill infant school and Dale Hall Primary, both within a mile of this home, to Ipswich School to Northgate High. * Council tax band: E
