From the front, Cilicia is a deceptively modest looking property giving little hint of the spacious accommodation it provides.
Having undergone a substantial extension and refurbishment program by the current owners, the agents Mortimer and Gausden say it is clear that much thought and attention to detail has been given to the finishing of this home.
They add: “An internal inspection will reveal the property to be somewhat more spacious than first impressions might suggest, with a neutral colour scheme giving a light and airy feel to the house.”
The house, in Leys Road, Tostock, offers versatile living space including a 6.81m by 3.78m sitting room which has double doors opening into the 3.58m by 3.43m conservatory.
The owners designed the layout so that the 4.73m by 2.75m study, large shower room and 3.47m by 2.75m utility room could be used as an independent living area.
Upstairs, the master bedroom is just over 4m square with an ensuite shower room and walk-in wardrobe.
Bedroom two is 5.09m by 3.74m and also has an ensuite shower room.
The two other bedrooms are 3.8m by 3.74m and 3.8m by 2.4m.
There is also a 2.4m by 2.26m family bathroom on this floor.
Heating is provided by an oil fired central heating system serving radiators and there is the benefit of sealed unit double glazed windows.
Cilicia is pleasantly set in a plot of about a quarter of an acre.
The front garden has been landscaped to provide extensive parking and is set behind an attractive brick and flint wall, with a wide access onto the drive.
Double gates to the side of the property give access to more parking (ideal for those with a motor home or caravan) and the 8.51m by 3.91m garage/workshop, which has light and power connected.
The private rear gardens are well screened by mature shrubs and trees and fencing. They have a large lawn bordered by deep colourful flower and shrub borders.
For those with green fingers and a love of gardening there are two well maintained timber sheds and a good quality greenhouse to the rear of the garden.
Cilicia is situated on the edge of Tostock, adjoining open countryside and the village green.
Tostock is about eight miles from Bury St. Edmunds with its extensive range of shopping and cultural facilities.
The house is well located for access to the A14 which provides links to Cambridge, Ipswich and the motorway network. Nearby Stowmarket has a direct rail link to London’s Liverpool Street Station.
