A handsome Architect designed four-bedroom detached house with generous gardens, high quality outbuilding / potential annexe with commanding views over glorious countryside to both front and rear. A unique property offering well-planned, versatile, naturally light accommodation which has been finished to an extremely high standard in every respect.
Constructed during 2010 by the well-respected local builder namely; Cutmore Builders, whom we have known and recommended for both new home builds and extensions for many years. The Architect was Mike Driver, a highly regarded and accomplished local architect who has the vision and ability to fuse modern-day living requirements with vernacular styling. Signature features include; vaulted ceilings, oriel windows and a blend of Suffolk red brick and render with appealing degrees of pitch to the roof structures- serving to compliment the Suffolk street scene.
The property was constructed to an exacting standard under the close supervision of the current owners, certainly not on a speculative basis. This is borne out by the quality of construction, having concrete beam floors with underfloor heating, oak second fixing, high quality German culinary and Laufen sanitary wares, cat 5 cabling, high quality tiling throughout and every attention to craftmanship.
