This exceptional five bedroomed individual house in Grimstone End, Pakenham is in our opinion one of the finest examples of modern residential architecture within the area. It is on the market for the first time since it was built by the current owners in 2000 for their own occupation. The house is particularly well crafted, meticulously planned and maintained, using very high quality bespoke materials throughout, and is complemented by luxuriously appointed accommodation displaying beautiful features and provides stunning views across Suffolk countryside.

The house has over 3500 square feet of internal space possessing a most light and airy atmosphere, including a fabulous garden room with full height glazed gable end and bi-folding doors opening to the gardens. Quality features, to name just a few, include a stunning hand built "Smith and Wareham" cherry wood lined kitchen complemented by integrated Miele appliances and Zodiac preparation surfaces, polished oak and Amtico flooring (with under floor heating to all floors), bespoke Oak internal doors and architraves, media system and mood lighting throughout. The house provides very flexible living space of enormous personality and the agents would thoroughly recommend an internal inspection in order to fully appreciate both the overall scale of accommodation and high quality of this unique home on offer.

Accommodation
The beautifully arranged accommodation currently in brief comprises: spacious reception hall, with oak and glazed doors opening to a comfortable sitting room with fireplace, media system and French doors to gardens.
