A beautiful detached cottage which was formerly a pair of farm cottages, abutting Suffolk countryside with spectacular views over surrounding farmland. 3 reception rooms and a stunning bespoke kitchen. 3 bedrooms, smart bathroom and en-suite shower, cloakroom, utility, garage and outbuildings.
A beautiful three bedroom detached 19th century cottage which was formerly a pair of farm cottages. The property has been extended by the previous owners and in the last eighteen months has been sympathetically updated and repaired. The property presents lime plaster colour wash elevations beneath a Suffolk tiled roof and benefits from timber double glazed windows, many of which have been newly installed and designed to complement the architectural style of the original cottages. The attention to detail is impressive and there are two new bathrooms and a cloakroom which are fitted with contemporary white sanitary ware, plus a superb Henry Gordon Jones kitchen with bespoke cabinets and integrated appliances. The two sitting rooms have fireplaces - the living room benefitting from a wood burner. The kitchen/breakfast room opens into a dining room which in turn opens to the garden via bi-folding doors. The accommodation is centrally heated by oil-fired radiators and retains many period features including ledged internal doors. There are beamed and vaulted ceilings on the first floor and some truly spectacular views over open Suffolk countryside. The cottage occupies a generous sized garden which abuts farmland. There is a garage and an adjacent shed. The owners have prepared plans to extend and develop the garage. The large livestock shed has potential to convert or re-develop to create an outside studio or workshop. The garden is an attractive and notable feature of Apple Tree Cottage. It is laid to lawn and abuts open farmland whilst affording a good degree of privacy. We most strongly recommend an early inspection in order to fully appreciate the high standard of the accommodation offered within.
