A contemporary four-bedroom property overlooking countryside in Ashfield Green, near Bury St Edmunds, is up for sale at a guide price of £895k. 

Number 1 The Gabions, which is about five years old, is a timber-clad property with a clay pantile roof and leaded dormer windows, with gabion retaining walls to the front drive. 

The detached property has a stunning kitchen/dining room ideal for family dinners or entertaining guests, as bi-fold doors lead to the pretty gardens. The grounds include a separate studio/home office.  

It also has an eco-friendly feature, as selling agent Jackson-Stops explained: “This highly efficient family home benefits from timber framed double-glazed windows and doors throughout, and the solar panels contribute significantly to the heating costs due to the electric air source underfloor and radiator central heating.” 

On the ground floor, the solid oak panelled front door opens to a semi-vaulted reception hall, which has tiled flooring, cupboards and a glazed door to the rear garden. 

Oak doors lead to the ground-floor accommodation, including a sitting room with a contemporary log-burning stove and bi-fold doors to a sun terrace. 

At the heart of the home is the large, triple-aspect kitchen/dining/living room, with its semi-vaulted ceiling, striking log-burning stove and bi-fold doors to the rear terrace.
