Understood to have been built in the 19th century of traditional brick and knapped flint construction beneath a hipped slate roof, this particularly attractive detached village house retains original features including sash windows, fireplaces, panelled internal doors and high ceilings, coupled with more recent improvements. The result is an impressive family home providing elegantly proportioned accommodation, currently in brief comprising: panelled entrance door to entrance porch with door to a spacious sitting room with fireplace, wood burning stove and two sash windows overlooking gardens. A delightful Victorian style conservatory is a pleasant, more recent addition to the side of the house, enjoying views and French doors to the gardens. A family room retains a fireplace whilst possessing a light and airy atmosphere, with windows to front and side. The separate dining room has a window to side, while the utility room retains a red brick fireplace and has built in cupboards and door to a ground floor cloakroom. The kitchen breakfast room is fitted with a matching range of limed oak finish units providing extensive cupboard and drawer space beneath preparation surfaces, complemented by built in appliances and a staircase off to the first floor. Beneath the kitchen and dining room are two small cellars, and to the rear is a boot room/ rear porch with door to garden. On the first floor are four generous bedrooms (one en-suite), and a refitted family bathroom completes the first floor accommodation.
Gated access leads to a gravel drive providing extensive vehicle parking and access to the detached double garage. The gardens are a particular feature, extending to all sides of the property, providing the occupants with a pleasant degree of privacy. The gardens are stocked with numerous flowering plants, shrubs and mature trees.
The property occupies a prominent setting at the top of the village high street. Ixworth is a thriving village offering a superb range of local facilities rarely found in villages of today, including doctors surgery, shops, restaurant, two public houses, church and free school.
When proceeding up the village high street, the house will be found at the top of the road on the right hand side.
