A three-bedroom house believed to date back to the early 1900s has come up for sale in the Suffolk village of Dennington.

Heping House, which is listed at a guide price of £355,000 and situated just three miles from Framlingham, is described by selling agents Clarke & Simpson as a "highly impressive and beautifully presented detached dwelling", offering well-proportioned rooms and taller-than-average ceilings.

The current owners have carried out a number of improvements since owning the property, including rebuilding the extension at the rear. It has also been fully re-wired and fitted with an oil-fired central heating system.

On the ground floor there is a sitting room featuring a door to the courtyard garden, as well as a contemporary wood-burning stove. A large, built-in understairs cupboard provides plenty of storage and the overall aesthetic is contemporary and fresh, with solid beech wood floorboards and neutral decoration.

But it's the kitchen that is really the hub of the home. Partly vaulted, it is an exceptionally light space with north-facing windows and a large skylight. Even more light also streams through a glazed door, which leads to the courtyard garden.
