DIRECTIONS & DESCRIPTION
If driving from the town centre, proceed along Tavern Street and at the recreation ground, turn right into Recreation Road. Take the second turning right into Violet Hill Road and after a short distance, turn left, down the shared access driveway, where the property is located at the end, on the left. If walking from the town centre, you can turn right into Violet Hill Road, directly off Tavern Street, as it is a one-way street. Therefore, the shared access drive, will be located on the right.
The property, with the postcode IP14 1NQ is located at the end of a shared access drive, convenient for Stowmarket town centre and its many amenities.
It is also within walking distance of schooling, a doctor's surgery, a pub, a recreation park, ASDA supermarket, Mid-Suffolk Leisure Centre and the station.
The UNLISTED property, which extends to around 2,200 sq ft, is understood to comprise the spacious west wing, which was apparently the servant's and butler's quarters, within a formally very large period house. It displays many features of the period, including high ceilings, pine panelled doors, fireplaces, parquet, pamment and quarry tiled floors, picture rails, a beautiful curving staircase and the original pantry, complete with meat-safe, hooks and shelving.
It would benefit from some cosmetic refurbishment and a particularly fine feature of the property is the 37.49m (123'0') long rear garden. The property is extremely deceptive from the front and must be viewed internally, to fully appreciate the size and range of accommodation available, therefore early viewing is advised.
