About this property

  • Heathlands is an impressive and substantial detached bungalow, with an annexe, swimming pool, and mature gardens set in over an acre.

    The building is well designed and in excellent condition but also offers great potential for updating.

    The accommodation flows remarkably well. Off the entrance hall are doors leading to the sitting room, kitchen/breakfast room and study, which in turn leads to the dining room.

    The sitting room is an expansive and light filled space; glazed sliding doors lead out to the southwest facing garden and pool area. The dining room, accessed via the study, occupies a later addition to the bungalow and has windows on the east and west elevations, and a door leading to the garden.

    The kitchen/breakfast room has plenty of cupboards and space for a dishwasher and range oven; a large window provides light to the kitchen and eating area. Beyond the kitchen is the utility/boot room with doors leading to a garage and out to the garden.

    To the rear of the building are four well-proportioned bedrooms and the family bathroom. The principal bedroom is especially nice with south westerly views and a generous adjoining bathroom.

    To the side of the main building is an annexe, known as Old Bungalow, which now requires updating and offers superb potential.

    Heathlands has wonderful mature and private gardens in grounds totalling approximately 1.71 acres. To the south west of the building is an outdoor swimming pool with a useful store, changing rooms and lavatory. Within the grounds is a delightful detached conservatory.

    To the front of the building are a drive and turning circle, providing parking space for numerous cars. The attached garage has space for up to three cars and has power, lighting, a sink and an electric door.

Heathlands is a superb property. It has bags of potential in such a wonderful position. I love the setting: quiet and peaceful but amazingly located for Woodbridge and the Suffolk Heritage Coast.
