5 bedroom detached house – Yaxley

Guide Price £650,000

Property Details

Location This house is tucked away in Yaxley, set off a no-through lane serving just the few houses along it. Walnut Tree House is then set well back from this lane and backs onto open farmland. Within walking distance is the public house. The nearby village of Mellis has a primary school and state secondary schooling is at Hartismere which has consistently been rated by Ofsted as 'outstanding' and is within the small town of Eye just a few miles away. Eye also provides a basic range of shops and has various social facilities. The larger market town of Diss is just over the border into Norfolk (5 miles) and offers wider facilities plus it has a mainline rail station on the Norwich to London Liverpool Street line with a journey of around 90 minutes. Further afield there is Ipswich around 22 miles away, Norwich 27 miles, or the Heritage Coast around Southwold and Aldeburgh is within 45 minutes or so by car. Overall this house offers a quiet position with great access to a wide range of amenities.

The Property This is a fine modern house of nearly 3,000ft² which has been designed to create the perfect 'flow'. It follows the modern sense of fewer but larger rooms and has been styled in subdued colours being very much 'en vogue'. The attention to detail is clear as soon as you walk through the door with the reception hall giving glimpses of what lies beyond. The kitchen has a vast breakfast bar in which is also set the pop up extractor and induction hob. This is complemented by two fitted ovens and a microwave set into the high gloss grey units. Other fittings include a fridge freezer, fridge, American fridge, wine cooler, dishwasher and a Quooker boiling water tap. The utility has matching units and space for further appliances. To the rear is the open plan living/dining area with its expanse of bi-fold doors opening onto the rear garden, and a raised sky lantern. Wrapping further round is the more formal sitting room with its focal point of central fireplace. There is a bedroom, study, wc and to complete the ground floor a large (and smart) boot room with fitted racking and hooks - an ideal area to keep the rest of the house tidy.

On the first floor the bedrooms all lead off a central landing. The main bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe and an en-suite with white wares of large shower, wc and basin. The second bedroom also has an en-suite shower and there is a family bathroom to serve the remaining two bedrooms.

Outside The driveway is owned by this house with the neighbour having a right of access. It leads into the private parking area to the front where there is a two bay open cartlodge style garage. Around the rear is where the main area of garden lies. Immediately beside the house is a bonded gravel patio which gives all the look of gravel without the hassle. Nearby is a timber BBQ shed, the studio outbuilding with store and the great expanse of lawn. For the keen golfer there is a putting green with artificial grass and a practice net, ready for when you visit the 18 hole golf course just a few miles away. At the far end of the garden is a further timber store shed 13' x10'.

Overall the property is set within 0.237ha (0.59ac).

Services Mains water, electricity and drainage are connected to the property. Oil fired boiler providing heating to radiators and domestic hot water.
