Property Description

Just a short stroll from the outstanding Walberswick beach this substantial period property is tucked away from The Street down Millfield Road.

Entering into the gravel driveway, Grey Roof is immediately impressive with its character features and architecturally designed appearance. The spacious accommodation set behind the historic door only builds on the excitement of the first impression.

Welcomed into the entrance hall, which leads into a number of the principal rooms and stairs to the first floor. To the front of the property is a triple aspect sitting room with brick-built fireplace, this room is a fantastic space for all the family to cosy up in the cooler months. Heading towards the rear of the property is the beautifully presented modern high specification kitchen with island unit, Aga and an abundance of worktop and storage space. The kitchen leads seamlessly into a generous dining room, with external door, and also the garden room, which is filled with light from the skylights and bifold doors. The ground floor accommodation is completed with a further reception room and cloakroom.

Stairs rise to the first floor where the principal bedroom is located at the front of the property. This superb room is notably spacious as well as boasting an executive suite feel with built in wardrobes and an en-suite bathroom tucked away through the dressing area. There are three further double bedrooms on this floor, one of which offers a modern en-suite shower room, as well as a family bathroom.

The remainder of the accommodation is found on the second floor with a further double bedroom.

Outside there is a fully landscaped garden to the rear with two outbuildings, one used as a delightful playhouse. The garden boasts a mix of mature trees and shrubs with a large area laid to lawn as well as a number of terraced areas, ideal for alfresco dining. The gravel driveway to the front of the property provides space for parking for a number of vehicles.

The current owners have undertaken substantial renovations to the property whilst beautifully complimenting the Frank Jennings design of this circa 1900 home.
