This impressive individual detached family home provides a generous level of much improved accommodation, enhanced by established gardens. The property enjoys a splendid semi-rural setting adjacent to open countryside in one of the area's most sought after locations. This superb home displays many quality features throughout including an Aga kitchen, fireplaces with stone surrounds, wood burning stoves and double glazing and the surprising level of light and airy accommodation currently in brief comprises: door opening to entrance porch, with door to an entrance hall with stairs off to first floor (cupboard beneath containing oil fired boiler (not tested)) and door to a ground floor cloakroom. The dining room has a fireplace with wood burning stove and two windows overlooking the front gardens. The study has French doors to the rear gardens, and leads to a light and airy sitting room with fireplace with stone surround and wood burning stove, and windows to front and rear. The spacious kitchen breakfast room is fitted with a matching range of units complemented by built in appliances and an oil fired Aga. A utility area and rear porch with door to garden completes the ground floor accommodation. On the first floor is a landing providing access to five comfortable bedrooms all enjoying splendid countryside views (two with en-suite bathrooms). A shower room completes the first floor accommodation.
The house is approached along a driveway providing extensive vehicle parking, turning space and access to a detached double cartlodge style garage with external staircase leading to a studio room above. The gardens are a delightful feature being mostly laid to lawn whilst stocked with an abundance of mature shrubs and trees. Countryside views are afforded and the grounds are estimated to extend to approximately a quarter of acre (subject to survey).
Wellham Cottage occupies a fabulous setting providing the occupants with peace, tranquility and countryside views whilst being a stone's throw from the sought after village of West Stow, best known for its woodland walks and recreated Anglo Saxon village. Although closer to West Stow, the property falls under a Culford address, another very sought after village with local facilities including the highly regarded Culford private school. The property is situated within approximately five miles of the historic market town of Bury St Edmunds and provides excellent access to the main road networks.
From Bury St Edmunds proceed north through the village of Fornham St Martin and straight over the roundabout towards to Culford. At the sharp right hand bend, proceed straight on towards West Stow. Follow the road through the village onto Culford Road, where the entrance to the property will be found further on the left hand side marked by a Sheridans for sale board.
Mains electricity and water are connected. Private drainage. Oil fired radiator central heating (not tested). St Edmundsbury Borough Council. Council tax band C.
