The Main House
Stepping into this elegant Grade II listed property we are welcomed through the front door into the reception hallway where the grandeur that flows throughout is instantly apparent. Diamond chequered tiles line the floor of the hall whilst our eye is drawn to the fan light window that frames a view of the impressive staircase. Doors to either side open to our first two reception rooms and at the foot of the stairs we find the interlinking doors leading to number 23. Set to the front of the property we find the drawing room, sash windows to two aspects fill the room with a stunning natural light whilst half height shutters allow for privacy in the room. A timber mantel piece frames the open fire providing a cosy focal point. Across the hall we find the sitting room which serves as a snug, evening room and library for our current vendors. An open fire warms the room and a window looks onto the front garden. A second door opens to the rear hallway which is equally as impressive as the entrance. A door opens to the gardens with a stunning arched window above that spans the height of the first floor passing through the galleried landing and filling both the hall way and grand landing area with light. At the head of the hall we step into the true 'hub' of this home, the kitchen/breakfast room and family/dining room seamlessly flow open plan providing the perfect space for modern family life and entertaining. The kitchen is fitted with a range of hand made wall and base units that contrast against the solid wooden work surfaces. An 'Aga' takes centre stage and offers a delightful and practical feature to the kitchen. Two windows fill the room with natural light and two large pantry style cupboards offer additional storage. Tiled flooring complements the space and flows through to both the utility and the family/dining area. The family room enjoys a vista of the beautiful gardens with French doors leading onto the patio. Inside a vaulted ceiling exposes the modern yet sympathetic timbers whilst two velux windows add to to the light ambiance of the room. The utility gives home to our laundry appliances and opens to the ground floor lavatory. Back in the hall we climb the stairs to the most impressive split, galleried landing. Light from the full height window pours into the space. Set to the front of the property we find a linking door to number 23 before stepping into the master bedroom, which offers a grand space in keeping with the home enjoying dual aspect windows and fitted wardrobes, on the opposite side of the landing the second first floor room offers a superbly proportioned double which sits adjacent to the shower/dressing room ideally lending the two spaces to become one (stpp) and form a delightful master or guest suite.
The main bathroom is set opposite and is fitted with a contemporary white bathroom suite. The second stair case rises to the second floor where a further delightful landing welcomes us. From the landing we find 2 further bedrooms and a shower room. The second bedroom is currently used as a study and leads to a final bedroom on this level.

The Cottage
Number 23 is an attractive cottage linked to number 21 whilst offering the ability to serve as a completely separate dwelling if required. Enjoying its own front door from Upper Olland Street we are welcomed into a generous sitting room, where the subtle differences are noted in the period between here and next door. A delightful parquet floor lines the room and a feature fire offers a cosy focal point. A door opens to the kitchen breakfast room where again a hand made range of units offer excellent storage and working space. Space is made for informal dining whilst at the rear of the house we find a delightful garden room which offers space for formal dining if needed. A wood burning stove is fitted to warm the Suffolk paments underfoot. French doors open to the courtyard area. Back in the kitchen our stairs rise to the first floor where we find a large double bedroom and the bathroom. The bedroom is of exceptional proportions and boasts fitted storage whilst over the landing the bathroom enjoys a modern suite offering a bath with shower over, wash basin and w/c. Completing the accommodation the final bedroom is set on the second floor and offers a generous single or small double bedroom space.

Outside
Wrought iron gates open to an extensive gravelled driveway which provides ample of parking for 3/4 vehicles. The charming frontage is dressed with climbing roses that fill the space with colour and scent whilst a variety of low lying beds and an established tree offer all year round greenery. The main house is built at a right angle to Upper Olland Street and therefore retains a great deal of privacy, with only the drawing room facing the road. An iron gate from the driveway leads us through to the rear garden, which is beautifully landscaped, mainly laid to lawn the space is framed by border beds and an attractive red brick wall. A variety of mature plants, trees and shrubs feature throughout the garden, and a terrace area shaded by a willow weave fence provides an ideal spot for outdoor entertaining. French doors lead from the Family Room into the garden from number 21 allowing the the internal and external space to flow as one whilst from 23 French doors step out to a small patio area which opens to the gardens of the main house whilst offering the space to separate and create a private courtyard to the cottage if required.
