A spacious 5 bedroom detached house of Victorian origins with more recent additions and offering approximately 2,300 sq.ft. of accommodation overall. 1/4 acre (sts).
Located within the small Mid Suffolk village of Little Stonham, and with frontage onto the A140, Hill Rise is a substantial five bedroom detached property with origins dating back to the early 1800's.
This beautiful home has been tastefully renovated by the current owner to the spacious, light property it is now and, with the added benefit of a well thought out and beautiful garden overlooking adjacent rural countryside, it makes this a property that needs to be seen to appreciate what is on offer.
The accommodation flows throughout and the modern additions blend well with the character features. The spacious double aspect 20' sitting room opens up to a delightful conservatory which was added by the owner circa 2006 and takes advantage of the views to the terrace which is ideal for al fresco entertaining.
The reception hall has a wood burner with the formal dining room adjacent with Victorian cast iron fireplace with pine surround and gives access to the well fitted farmhouse style kitchen with cream fronted units, wooden work surfaces and tiled flooring and the breakfast room with French doors leading to the conservatory, again which looks out over the attractive and mature rear garden.
The addition of a significant two storey extension approximately six years ago, provides a large utility area, which is fitted in a similar style as the kitchen and has a shelved pantry, large store cupboard and cloakroom. There is an adjacent study area and staircase up to a large, double aspect guest bedroom with en suite shower. This area of the property was added with annexe potential in mind.
The main bedrooms are accessed from the central staircase and are spacious. The master bedroom, which has a triple aspect and an en suite shower room. There are three further good sized bedrooms and a recently re-fitted family bathroom with corner bath and shower over
The original areas of the property are of traditional brick construction with rendered elevations under a slate roof, and the extension is of similar style, all have the benefit of UPVC sealed unit windows

Occupying a plot of approximately ¼ of an acre (sts) the majority of the garden is located at the rear on the east side. These are a delight and have been designed to make the most of the space and the views. There is a terrace which has a built in BBQ area and is perfect for entertaining.
