Set centrally in about one acre, Autumn House is a substantial family home which has much appeal.
Built in the mid-1970's on land once belonging to the neighbouring church, the house was subsequently reconfigured and modernised by the existing owners, which now provides immaculately presented accommodation with generously pro- portioned rooms on both floors.
A welcoming central hallway with pamment tiled floor extends to the open-plan kitchen / dining room which is well fitted with extensive granite work surfaces, butler sink, integral appliances and a range cooker. A separate utility room and an additional dining area / study are to the front, with boot room to rear.
To the opposite end of the house is the double aspect sitting room, with solid oak flooring, central fireplace with stone surround and double doors leading to the oak framed veranda.
The sitting room extends into a further seating area, having a full-height solid oak bookcase with cupboards fitted on one wall.
On the first floor are five, well-proportioned double bedrooms, with the main full-width bedroom having a dressing area and an ensuite shower room.
A bathroom serves the remaining four bedrooms with central rolltop bath, twin sinks with black surround and vanity unit. There is also an additional shower room.
Occupying an idyllic private setting in the centre of the village, the property is approached via a sweeping gravel driveway giving an attractive approach.
Ample off-road parking to the front leads to a detached triple garage with rear workshop, garden store and spacious accommodation over - which is ideal for home working / annex use. This substantial two storey outbuilding was a built by the existing owners at a similar time to when the comprehensive works were made to the house (circa 2007).
The gardens chiefly consist of large areas of lawn bordered by established trees including yew, holm oak, sweet chestnut, and a beech tree to the front lawn. To the rear, a brick terrace extends the entire length of the house which also forms the al fresco dining area under the veranda.
Tattingstone is a popular village on the outskirts of Ipswich, a popular destination for the commuter with easy access to mainline stations at Manningtree, Ipswich and Colchester plus routes through to the A14 and A12.
