Property Details


Havenholme sits on the south side of the village street within well screened private gardens including excellent off road parking. Being nicely set back from the road, any passing traffic is hardly noticeable and the property itself nicely discreet. The village is well served and includes a Community Store along with The Black Horse Pub, Village Hall, Parish Church and a well regarded Primary School within Hartismere catchment. Bus Routes link Thorndon with the surrounding area and the road system allows easy access to towns and villages such as Eye, Debenham, Stowmarket and Woodbridge along with Diss on the Norfolk Suffolk border. The mainline rail station at Diss provides a commuter service to London Liverpool Street. Neighbouring Eye provides a wide range of shops for everyday needs along with the Health Centre, Library, Community Art Centre and High School with Sixth Form Centre. Equally, Debenham lies within easy reach to the south providing similar facilities with Stowmarket providing an alternative mainline rail station to Cambridge and Kings Cross to Scotland.


Havenholme is the result of a tremendous project of enhancement and improvement by the current owners, enlarging not only the footprint of the original bungalow but also raising the roof height to provide three first floor bedrooms, bathroom and en suite. The extensive ground floor includes a welcoming central hallway which extends through the interior serving the various spaces and enabling a good flow of the layout. Reception rooms include a relaxing sitting room with solid fuel burning stove along with a social family/dining space extending from front to back and giving access out to the garden as well as linking the well appointed kitchen. A ground floor bedroom option has shower room adjacent to a study providing important 'work from home' space. Of particular note is the long side hall linking with the utility room which for the outdoor types is a great space for coats, boots, dogs etc. A door from here leads into the garage, providing storage options for everything other than the car! Windows are double glazed, with an attractive choice of unit and oil fired radiator heating is installed throughout. The gardens are equally well appointed and maintained and surround the house with gates at either side. The rear enjoys the advantage of the sunny southerly aspect. The owners have an extensive photographic record of their renovations on display which can be seen when viewing.
