Set well back and 'side-on' to the minor Hadleigh Road, Chippendale is discreetly positioned in the popular village of Elmsett.
Built in the 1970s, the well-proportioned family accommodation was extended further by a significant loft conversion in 2003. Accessed via a welcoming entrance hall is the main rear reception room, with wood burner and a full height picture window overlooking the rear garden.
The adjacent kitchen / breakfast room also gives a similar aspect, which also leads through to the conservatory. Fitted on two walls, the kitchen offers extensive worksurfaces with numerous pine units and drawers, Rangemaster cooker and various appliances.
To the opposite side of the hall, the remaining ground floor accommodation provides two front double bedrooms with bay windows, a further single bedroom / study and a bathroom.
The loft conversion provides two of the most spacious bedrooms, with bedroom one giving far-reaching views over the gardens and paddocks beyond.
There is also a central single bedroom, a further bathroom and plenty of eaves storage throughout.
In addition to the main chalet is further ancillary accommodation comprising a detached, two-bedroom annexe which was built in 2000.
Although the annex forms part of Chippendale, has independant oil-fired heating (and tank) electricity and is rated separately.
Offering an additional 580sq.ft of living space, the annex is ideal for an dependant relative or let on a residential tenancy agreement.
To the end of the driveway is the main parking area, with nissen hut / garage having power and timber sheds.
Beyond a five-bar gate is an extensive area of lawn with mature trees, summer house and a further range of outbuildings located to the south-eastern corner. Immediately to the rear of the sitting room and conservatory is a large, enclosed patio with a further timber outbuilding.
Elmsett is located some five miles from the thriving market town of Hadleigh and nine miles from Ipswich.
The village itself offers a Post Office/Village Stores, public house, primary school, and village hall.
