Benhall Green, Saxmundham | Guide Price, £275,000


Attractive end of row period cottage with many fine original features. Sitting room with inglenook fireplace and wood burning stove, bathroom, kitchen/dining room, landing 3 bedrooms, front garden and very pretty cottage garden at the rear.
An attractive end of row period cottage which lies at the very heart of the popular Suffolk village of Benhall Green overlooking Benhall Wadd, a nature conservation area managed by the Parish Council, close to The Green and within a short walk of the primary school and the village's popular social club. The cottage which has been extended during the latter part of the twentieth century, has many fine original features which include exposed beams, floorboards and a wonderful inglenook which has a wood burner and a back boiler. The sitting room is large and opens through to a lovely cottage kitchen/diner. There is a ground floor family bathroom and potential, we believe, to install a first floor WC. The bedrooms are well proportioned; the master bedroom being particularly notable for its generous size. At the back of the cottage there is a very pretty cottage garden which is well stocked with herbaceous plants and established shrubs. There is a wild life pond and three useful sheds. There is off street parking to the front. The front garden is a good size and is flanked by established hedges. The cottage would now benefit from some general modernisation. As it becomes increasingly difficult to find properties in this enviable location, we the vendor's agents most strongly recommend an early appointment.
