Description Set on a 3/4 acre plot the potential with this home is endless.

The overall plot is really what gives this home the wow factor, together with its quiet, private position and countryside views.

Holly Oak has been a family home for many years and was built by the current owners which shows that this exclusive opportunity is very rare. Its prime location in Bentley is perfect for a family as it is in East Bergholt catchment.

As you walk through the door you come into the large entrance hall with wooden balustrade staircase and understairs storage cupboard. Doors lead to the reception space.

There is a cosy lounge with fireplace and large windows to the side and front. The kitchen/dining room/family room is perfect for those who like to socialise as it provides ample space. There is also a utility to the rear of the home where there is a rear lobby and toilet. The house bathroom is located on the ground floor.

Upstairs the landing is of a good size and has a large window to the front and airing cupboard. The master bedroom is a spacious and would be perfect for one to add bathroom facilities. There is eaves storage and window to the side. The other two rooms are both doubles with windows to the back of the home.

To the front of the home you have a gated driveway with established trees. There is a hard concreate area providing ample parking. The fence enclosed garden is mainly laid to lawn with established trees. There is a greenhouse and oil tank.

What the owner says "Mum and Dad spent many happy years at Holly Oak; enjoying its tranquil setting they brought up two children, hosted my wedding and then went on to entertain grandchildren in the lovely garden. It's now time after 50 years of living there for someone else to enjoy the peace and quiet and fill the house with more joy and laughter"
