It’s apparently been ‘remodelled’ in the 70s and 90s, but at its heart, this five-bedroomed Heron Hill bungalow in Stowmarket, Suffolk is still a 1960s design, as well as offering more than you might think for the money.
It’s described as a unique split-level single-storey country house, of brick and block construction with external timber cladding to give it a Scandinavian theme.
Sat in 1.8 acres, the house comes with plenty of landscaped gardens, not to mention a summerhouse and workshop, a heated swimming pool, hard tennis court and a vegetable patch. It’s also a mile from a popular local golf course, if that’s your cup of tea.
Once inside, there’s an entrance hall with parquet flooring, leading to a study, cloakroom, garden room (with woodblock floor and French doors to garden), sitting room with semi-vaulted tongue-and-groove panelled ceiling and a kitchen/breakfast room.
There’s also a rear hall, leading to the swimming pool and a shower room, as well as a utility room, along with an inner hall, which in turn leads to a snug, five bedrooms (the master bedroom being en-suite) and a family bathroom.
That’s a lot of house and outside area for your money. No one is saying it is cheap at £745,000, but it’s probably cheaper than you might have expected.
