Located some 0.2 miles from in the village centre, The Pyghtle was originally built in the 1960s and forms part of the ribbon development along the minor Hadleigh road.

In 2009, the building was significantly modified and extended, which has formed a well-proportioned, spacious, and presentable home.

The adjacent utility room offers plenty of additional storage and further work surfaces, plumbing for washing machine and a wall mounted gas-fired boiler. 

The generously sized, double reception room has much appeal, where double doors lead though to the garden room, giving views and access onto the private rear garden. The ground floor double bedrooms are to one end of the bungalow which are both served by the main bathroom.

The first-floor double bedrooms are accessed via an oak stairs to the welcoming entrance hall. Set either side of a central landing, each bedroom provides much natural light via two large velux windows. Both rooms also offer ensuite shower rooms to one corner. 

Outside, the property is approached over a brick weaved drive which abuts an area of lawn defined by post and rail fencing. The drive continues to the rear, leading to a garage / workshop with power connected. 

The rear garden (west) comprises a patio which leads onto an expanse of lawn with a further patio set to one corner. Of particular note is the uninterrupted rural views beyond the western boundary, which is defined by an established beech hedge.


Located about 0.2 miles south of the village centre, Elmsett is located some five miles from the thriving market town of Hadleigh and nine miles from Ipswich.

The village itself offers a Post Office/Village Stores, public house, primary school, and village hall.
