  • In all about 1.6 acres.

A wonderful opportunity has arisen to enhance this magnificent former Dower House with Victorian additions providing accommodation in excess of 5000 sq. ft. and occupying a central but secluded village setting with magnificent rolling Suffolk countryside views. The property has an abundance of period features including open fires, large sash windows with shutters, high ceilings, exposed beams and ornate coving. The Cottage provides well-proportioned accommodation with principal rooms situated to fully appreciate the far reaching views. Sited in grounds of 1.6 acres with a detached coach house and stable block providing potential for additional accommodation. Included with The Cottage is a walled kitchen garden benefitting from planning consent for a detached bungalow of about 1800 sq. ft.

The Cottage offers a truly versatile layout with principal reception rooms situated to enjoy the wonderful countryside views. Principally the accommodation includes a drawing room, sitting room, and separate dining room with further reception room with bay windows to the rear, study, large kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, ground floor shower room, separate cloakroom and large useful cellar. The first floor provides five generous bedrooms including master bedroom with en suite bathroom and large sash pane window to fully appreciate the uninterrupted countryside views, there are two additional large double bedrooms again enjoying the Suffolk panoramic country views, both with built-in storage cupboards. There are two further double bedrooms with a family bathroom and additional shower room. Access to the first floor is via two staircases with a further secondary staircase leading up to an attic room which lends itself to bedroom 6/games room.

Externally The Cottage is situated back from the road and is approached over a sweeping gravelled driveway past the detached former coach house/stable block leading to a large gravelled parking area for several vehicles. The detached coach house is currently utilised as a workshop/home office with central heating, power and lighting but retains all original features including internal stable boxes, tack room and hay barn which now provide ample garaging. The coach house lends itself perfectly for conversion to ancillary accommodation perhaps as an annexe for extended family or alternatively for use as an office or workshop (subject to the necessary planning consents). In addition there is a vinery, stable and storage shed.

The grounds of The Cottage are predominantly lawn with a large walled kitchen garden which benefits from an existing planning consent for a detached single storey dwelling of about 1800 sq. ft. under application number DC/17/04199. The main gardens are arranged over two levels with an upper and lower lawn and established borders, shrub and tree plantings throughout framing the delightful far reaching countryside views beyond. There are terraced areas for outdoor entertaining.
