Property Details


Gislingham is a well served Suffolk village set amidst a network of country lanes and beautiful rural countryside bordering the Thornham Estate which invites public access across fields and woods.. The village attracts a wide variety of people and contains a lovely range of period buildings along with carefully designed modern homes. Village facilities include a Village Shop with a Post Office van visiting twice a week at the Village Hall. The village features an interesting period Parish Church along with an excellent 21st Century built Primary School. Furthermore, villagers can take advantage of a variety of local clubs and societies many of which centre around the traditional Village Hall. The location, whilst rural, is well placed for access to the surrounding main towns and employment centres including Stowmarket, Ipswich, Bury St Edmunds and Diss. For the rail commuter, mainline stations can be found at Stowmarket & Diss with services to London Liverpool Street with connections from Bury St Edmunds to Cambridge and the north.


1 Old School Playground is as the name suggests is set within the curtilage of the former village Primary School. Along with a matching neighbour, No.1 is arguably in prime position having privacy, gardens and access directly to its garage and driveway, The accommodation is superb and surprisingly punches greatly above its weight in that not only are there two double bedrooms but also a ground floor study which could serve as a third bedroom if required. Along with the ground floor Wet Room this space may appeal to those who might one day like to avoid stairs or, just make a very nice guest space. To the rear sits a Conservatory which is used as part of the main accommodation and lends itself well to the adjacent kitchen. Windows are double glazed and oil fired radiator heating installed throughout. Outside, both the garden area between Conservatory and garage and that which would normally be considered to be the front, are equally useable and enjoyable. Internally, finishing details are also worthy of note and include brushed steel and stainless finished door furniture, matching switch and socket plates, sisal flooring along with radiator covers and feature cornices.
