This detached, split-level bungalow is set in over one acre of wonderfully secluded gardens with far-reaching rural views
Built in the mid 1960's, Hillside is located to the end of a residential 'no through road' on the southern outskirts of Bildeston.
As its name suggests, the bungalow is built on raised ground, where the living space is arranged over two floors.
Despite the accommodation requiring cosmetic updating, the layout of the bungalow is both practical and pleasing. The lower floor comprises the kitchen / breakfast room, dining and sitting room with large picture windows providing views over parts of the village and undulating countryside beyond.
The upper section provides four double bedrooms, where bedrooms one to three overlook part of the rear garden.
Outside, the property offers a considerable amount of amenity land for a property in this location, where the gardens ascend to the east, south which then returns to the west, behind numbers 10 and 11 Manor Road.
Covering 1.07 acres, the wonderfully private gardens consist of meadowland with orchards, vegetable patches and areas of native bushes and trees which abut countryside on the southern and eastern boundaries.
To the front is a raised garden with an adjacent driveway, leading to a detached garage.
Due to Hillside's elevated setting, the property provides far-reaching rural views to west towards Preston St Mary village.
The property benefits from a vehicular right of way over land located to the end of Manor Road (south).
Hillside forms part of a small, established residential area to the Hadleigh side of the village.
Bildeston is a popular mid-Suffolk village approximately 5 miles from the market town of Hadleigh. The village is well served by a thriving Post Office and general stores, doctor's surgery, primary school, the acclaimed Bildeston Crown, pubs, and the nearby Hollow Trees Farm Shop.
