The front door opens into a stylish entrance hall with an elegant staircase with a cupboard beneath. The sitting room is situated to the front with a sash bay window complete with original pine shutters and a fireplace with a cast-iron open fire. Beech parquet flooring is laid throughout the ground floor. To the rear and leading off the hallway is the outstanding kitchen/dining room with ample space for sitting by the wood burner. The well-fitted kitchen features a customised stainless steel worktop and oversized sink over a range of base cupboards, fridge, dishwasher, Neff electric oven and five burner gas hob. A door to the rear leads to a tiled lobby and the utility room with useful built-in larder and stores, sink, washing machine and water softener. A further cupboard houses the gas central heating boiler (2018) and hot water cylinder (2021), and beyond is a wet room with shower, basin and W.C. Charming doors open onto the dining/socialising area of the rear walled garden.
Off the first floor landing are three bedrooms: a single which is currently used as an office, and two generous doubles with built-in wardrobes. The well-appointed bathroom provides a large double-ended cast-iron bath, rectangular wash basin and W.C. A staircase off the single bedroom gives access to a beautiful attic room with plenty of eaves storage. The property is offered in excellent order and retains many period features such as sash windows, pine doors, brass door furniture, ceiling cornices, exposed floorboards and an oak banister.
To the front of the house a driveway provides off-road parking, (no.35 has access only across the front of the drive to their garage). The house is well screened by evergreen hedging and the focus of the front garden is a spiral-design in brick and York stone. A gate to the side opens to a unique 'secret' walled garden, professionally-designed to be 'low maintenance and drought resistant'. This stunning mature private garden with its paved and gravelled areas is interspersed with small trees, flowering shrubs, flowers and climbers. The planting plan features mainly white flowers - including a variety of roses, peonies, clematis, wisteria, lavender, hydrangeas - and the garden offers a lush naturalness, especially through the summer. Clipped box hedges surround raised beds, paved areas of York stone are perfect for sitting out, and a purpose-built oak pergola with climbers creates a shaded area on hot days. To the rear of the property are two attached brick stores, one fully-shelved out, and a further timber shed.
The property is within easy walking distance of both the town's facilities and rural walks. Halesworth provides many independent shops, Edgar Sewter primary school, public houses, cafés, restaurants, GP surgery, vets and a supermarket. 'The Cut' is the town's exceptional arts centre - converted from a former maltings - which offers a dynamic year-round programme of theatre, cinema, dance and exhibitions, plus art and fitness classes. Also within walking distance is the train station with services to London Liverpool Street via Ipswich. The unspoilt heritage coastline of Suffolk with the glorious beaches of Southwold, Dunwich and Walberswick are a 20-minute drive away.
