Built to an individual specification in 1973 by the existing owners, Stoney Down comprises a three-bedroom bungalow located in the centre of this small and well-regarded village.
Despite requiring some cosmetic improvements, the bungalow is extensive, with well-proportioned and versatile accommodation throughout.
The three reception rooms are to one side of a spacious entrance hall, with the front sitting room providing an open fire and a large picture window to the front aspect.
The adjoining, twin aspect dining and garden rooms are a more recent addition (circa 1991) which lead through to the extensive AGA kitchen / breakfast room to the rear, which is comprehensively fitted with a range of pine base and eye level units, work surfaces on two walls, pantry, airing cupboard and a rear utility room.
To the eastern side of the bungalow are three double bedrooms, which are accessed via a spacious inner hallway and are served by a family bathroom.
Outside, the property offers off-road front parking with gardens on both sides which lead to the principal rear garden comprising a patio leading onto an area of lawn.
The northern, eastern and front southern boundaries are defined by an established beech hedge.
Historically, the bungalow has been associated with the neighbouring Jubilee Farm to the north of the property, and as such part of the amenity land registered to Stoney Down extends beyond the existing beech hedge to the north and east. This land is to be retained by the owners for its continual use as part of the yard to Jubilee Farm.
Stoney Down is located in Polstead Heath, which a small rural village located some 1.3 miles north of Polstead village green to the south, and 3.5 mile to the west of Hadleigh. Hadleigh, which provides excellent facilities including supermarket, shops, restaurants, pubs, and school.
