DESCRIPTION This large, detached house originates from the 1970s but has been completely transformed into a delightful 21st century home by the current architect owners. They have had the house extensively remodelled and updated to include new blockwork and lintels, rewiring, a new heating system, insertion of new box frames, new windows, doors and internal joinery, plastering, a new kitchen and new bathrooms. These are examples of the level of work carried out but by no means a complete catalogue. The staircase has been moved to make maximum impact in the hallway and on the landing. The work has been carried out to a high standard using quality materials with building regulation approval. The remodel has been extensive in scope and carried out with imagination, flare and an exceptional eye for detail.
The reception hall is now light and spacious with French double doors leading out to a paved terrace and to the large garden at the front of the property. From here, the newly remodelled staircase leads to the first floor.
The main living areas lie to the back of the house, maximising the view over the beautiful garden.
The kitchen is well fitted, fully integrated, spacious and stylish with an expanse of sleek, modern kitchen units and a central island/breakfasting area. French doors and full height windows ensure the space is light.
The main dining area is open to the sitting room and this combines to make a marvellous room. Elegantly modern with well thought out discrete storage and great adjustable lighting. Bifold doors can be left wide to bring the gorgeous garden that much closer and internally, sliding pocket doors can be left open to maximise a sense of flow throughout the ground floor accommodation or can be closed for more cosy evenings in front of the wood burning stove. The design of these reception rooms make for a perfect entertaining space but will equally well accommodate a family at home.
A spacious utility/cloakroom and pretty snug/study complete the downstairs accommodation.
From the now very spacious landing, lead four very good sized bedrooms, the master ensuite and a well fitted family bathroom.
The house sits fairly centrally on a plot of approximately half an acre and the gardens to front and rear, they have been thoughtfully landscaped and extensively planted. Tree and shrubs in varying shapes and hues give the garden structure and interest all year round whilst myriad perennial plants add fragrance and riotous colour throughout the summer months. As with the house, the garden lends itself to be the most fabulous summer entertaining area or a wonderful family play and relaxation spot.
There is an integral double garage and generous driveway with ample off road parking for several vehicles.
LOCATION Cratfield is a small village around six miles west of Halesworth with Framlingham ten miles to the south and the coast at Southwold just a short drive away.
The village is a tranquil farming and residential community with a population of around three hundred. There is a selection of B&B’s and the village is near to the popular tourist attraction Camel Farm Oasis. Cratfield has a very strong and supportive community with a monthly resident magazine and numerous well attended events at the Village hall throughout the year.
Parts of the church of St. Mary date back to the 14th Century. Annual summer concerts take place at the church from July to September and have been a regular fixture in the village since the 1990’s.
