An imaginative, one of a kind grand design home with over 5,300 square feet of accommodation, including a unique converted silo annexe wing; backing onto woodland and open countryside, on the edge of a picturesque Suffolk village. In all 1.62 acres. Unique, grand design home features four bedrooms to main house, three bathrooms, large open-plan living kitchen/family room, impressive vaulted sitting room, converted silos offering ancillary wing, gym, breeze house for al fresco entertaining, double garage and outbuildings.  Converted from a former barn and silos, this unique and architecturally impressive property is believed to have been one of the first of its...

kind, allowing both the vendor and his imaginative builder to create something truly special that combined the buildings origins delicately with its surroundings, however inside, is a contemporary and light open plan comfortable home. This fine residence sits behind the church overlooking woodlands and open countryside beyond, on the edge of the popular village of Bildeston. The main house offers impressive flexible space ideal for modern family life, with additional accommodation within the two converted silos that could either be used as overflow for a larger family or as a guest wing. The vendor has considered the prospect of renting it out as an occasional holiday let which we imagine would have great appeal due to its uniqueness and position (subject to the necessary consents).  The ground floor benefits from large open plan rooms all of which have wide windows and bifold doors allowing the inside to flow within. A welcoming reception/dining hall with feature staircase opens into the kitchen/breakfast/family room with large central island, and double bifold doors to outside. Also accessed from the reception hall is the fully vaulted 27ft by 17ft sitting room with feature double sided multi fuel stove which leads into the snug/study, again both with doors to outside. An inner hall provides access to a shower room, pantry, utility and boot room. To the first floor is the principal bedroom with walk-in wardrobe and en suite bathroom; three further double bedrooms and a Jack and Jill bathroom. The galleried landing offers further living space and overlooks the drawing room below and the silos are accessed from here. Continuing on through to the first floor on this impressive wing, is the gym with reinforced floors, and sitting area beyond. Spiral stairs lead up to a bedroom with walk through wardrobes, a dressing area and en suite; all enjoying stunning views over the countryside beyond. To the ground floor is a kitchen/dining area and sitting room. Overall, the vast space on offer can be utilised in so many ways. Set behind wooden gates and approached over a shingle driveway with turning and parking for a number of vehicles, a large double garage with a separate side door to the garden and a rapid charging point for an electric car provides useful storage. Further gates lead to the rear garden, which is predominantly laid to lawn, with a central building called The Breeze House which sits in the middle of the garden providing stunning outside space ideal for undercover al fresco dining and panoramic views of the garden and fields beyond; further patio surrounds the rear of the property. There is a large shed, bespoke wooden greenhouse and an area to the rear of the garden with raised beds, water feature and a variety of trees.
