About this property

  • Architecturally designed and built by P J Livesey in 2017 as one of a small enclave of individually designed homes, Waterman House is a substantial five bedroom detached property occupying a prominent and convenient position on Pytches Road; located within walking distance of the centre of Woodbridge, including the river, Woodbridge School and all the amenities the popular town has to offer.

    Waterman House is constructed from brick and partially clad in timber under a slate and tiled roof. The property benefits from light and spacious accommodation throughout creating flexible living space over two floors. The property has been built to a high specification throughout including triple glazing downstairs, underfloor heating downstairs and in the bathrooms and cloakroom and high quality fixtures and fittings.

    The well proportioned entrance hall, with ceramic tiled floor gives access to a storage cupboard, cloakroom and boot room, which leads through to the utility room, with integral door into the double garage. A large sitting room room with two sets of bi-fold doors to outside and a fantastically spacious kitchen/dining/family room with dining benefits from a triple aspect and a further door out to the garden.

    The kitchen is of a modern design with granite worktops, tiled floor, built in base and wall mounted units providing generous storage. A large granite island affords additional storage, wine fridge and appliances include Siemens cookers, warming drawers, induction hob and extractor.

    An attractive feature oak staircase leads from the entrance hall to the first floor galleried landing. The principal bedroom has two dressing room areas and a vast en suite shower room, all of which creates a large suite. There are a further four double bedrooms, three of which have en suite shower rooms, and a further family bathroom.

    The property is approached over a paved driveway with off road parking for two cars to the front of the integral garage. The garage has a remote control roller door, power and light. Pedestrian gates on either side of the property lead to the enclosed rear garden that is paved and laid to lawn with a mature tree and a sandstone terrace which wraps around the back of the house, ideal for al fresco dining. Steps lead up to an upper terrace, providing the perfect sun trap.

I was amazed at how light, spacious and airy Waterman House is, the perfect family home. The proximity to the centre of Woodbridge, the river and Woodbridge school is also fantastic.
