About the Property
Grove Farm House is approached via a tree lined shingle driveway. The property was built in 1982 and now includes two further dwellings, an adjacent indoor heated swimming pool, gym and a range of useful outbuildings set within grounds extending to about four acres (sts) to include formal gardens, paddocks and a field. The property has been a wonderful family home and may suit multigenerational living, enabling extended families to live together with the benefit of independent accommodation, or could be enjoyed as primary residence with potential for holiday lets or other business opportunities (subject to the necessary consents). We are advised that one of the dwellings has been used for holiday lets and that the swimming pool has previously generated an income.
The main residence (The Farm House) was built in 1982 and comprises: Galleried entrance hall, a sitting room, dining room, kitchen opening to a breakfast room with study area, utility room with boiler cupboard housing the oil fired central heating boiler and a water softener, boot room and conservatory on the ground floor. An ornate staircase rises to the galleried landing providing access to five bedrooms, an en-suite bathroom serving the master bedroom offering dual sinks, a roll top bath and a shower, an en-suite bathroom with double shower serving the guest/second bedroom and a family bathroom that features a roll top bath. The conservatory provides a link to the indoor heated swimming pool that benefits from an adjacent gym, shower room/WC and a changing room offering three dressing cubicles and a further shower and WC. The pool is heated by an air source heat pump and has French doors, a remote control electric pool cover and radiators served by an oil fired boiler.

The annex enjoys independent access but can also be approached via The Farm House utility room. The annex comprises: Hall with cupboard housing an oil fired combination boiler, a dual aspect sitting room, kitchen/dining room with French doors opening to a terrace, two double bedrooms and a bathroom equipped with a bath and double shower cubicle.
The bungalow/Holiday let (connected to the annex but currently enjoying independent access) was thoughtfully designed and built in 2015 to incorporate vaulted ceilings within the primary rooms and comprises: Entrance hall, dual aspect vaulted sitting room, dual aspect vaulted kitchen/dining/family room with French doors opening to a patio, two double bedrooms with built in wardrobes, a wet room with walk in shower and a utility room housing the oil fired boiler and water softener. There are a range of useful outbuildings to include: A double bay cart lodge with an adjacent garage, two further cart lodges with a central garage and shed to the rear, a machine store, and a gated stable yard with two lose boxes/stables and two small stables. The majority of the outbuildings benefit from power and light. The grounds are predominantly laid to grass, there are formal gardens, a field, two paddocks, three small paddocks, an elevated terrace to the front of the swimming pool and a vegetable plot equipped with a poly tunnel, raised beds and a chicken run. There are solar panels on the roof of the main house and swimming pool, a wood burning stove in the sitting room of the main residence, private drainage via a Marsh treatment plant and a water harvester serving external taps by the stable block and paddocks.

Internal viewing is essential to appreciate the full potential of this flexible family home that may offer further potential for multigenerational living, holiday lets or other business opportunities (subject to the necessary consents).

About The Area
The village of Dallinghoo has a pretty village Church and is located close to the pretty, neighbouring village of Charsfield which has a primary school and a garage with a shop. Wickham Market, less than 4 miles away, has a selection of shops and amenities and the larger market towns of Woodbridge (barely 5 1/2 miles) and Framlingham (under 7 miles) offer an excellent range of shops, restaurants, public houses, schools, recreation and general amenities. The County town of Ipswich lies some 11 miles to the south west with direct rail links to Liverpool Street station (approximately 65 minutes). Rail services are also available from nearby Campsea Ashe, Melton and Woodbridge. The village is well positioned for visiting the nearby Heritage Coast, as well as numerous other popular attractions.
