Guide Price £425,000 Sold STC 2 Bedrooms

A spacious two bedroom detached bungalow, occupying a wonderful, tucked away location a short distance from the centre of Framlingham.



Entrance hall, 19’ sitting room, 18’ kitchen/breakfast room, 17’ master bedroom, second bedroom and shower room. Single garage and off-road parking. Delightful south-westerly facing walled garden. 

The property will be found in a very private and tucked away position off Fore Street, just a few minutes walk from the centre of Framlingham and well placed to benefit from all the amenities the town has to offer.  Framlingham is perhaps best known for its magnificent castle but also benefits from a good selection of independent shops and businesses including cafés, restaurants, hairdressers, antique shops, a travel agency, nursery, vets and delicatessen.  It is also home to the Crown Hotel, Barclays Bank, a Co-operative supermarket and doctors’ surgery.   The town also benefits from  Sir Robert Hitcham’s CEVA Primary School & Nursery, Thomas Mills High School and Framlingham College.  

Framlingham is surrounded by delightful villages, many of which have popular public houses.  There are lovely walks from the town into the surrounding countryside, and amenities such as golf in nearby locations such as Cretingham (6 miles), Woodbridge (12 miles) and Aldeburgh (13 miles).  The world famous Snape Maltings Concert Hall is nearby (10½ miles), and there is also bird watching at the RSPB centre at Minsmere (15 miles).  Framlingham is only 12 miles from the coast as the crow flies with easy access to the popular destinations of Southwold, Dunwich, Thorpeness and Orford.  The county town of Ipswich lies approximately 18 miles to the south-west and from here there are regular services to London’s Liverpool Street, scheduled to take just over an hour.

From the Agent’s office proceed along Station Road then turn left onto Fore Street.  Continue up Fore Street and the entrance to the property will be found on the left hand side, just after the left hand bend.
