An enchanting detached cottage which is situated in a pretty location between the village centre and Snape Maltings near a footpath which leads down towards the estuary. The cottage, which was built approximately 20 years ago, benefits from two large double bedrooms and a first floor family bathroom. On the ground floor there is a large sitting room which has an open fireplace and opens to a bespoke Victorian style conservatory, a family room/dining room and a pretty kitchen/breakfast room which is fitted with Shaker style units and has an oil-fired Rayburn which also provides central heating via radiators and domestic hot water. The garden faces south and is designed for ease of maintenance. There is a former school pavilion which has been converted to a utility room and work room. The owners have also installed a purpose made, wheeled, shepherd's hut which is used as a studio. This delightful out door workspace has its own woodburner and fitted bunk bed. The driveway which is accessed via a five bar gate provides good off street parking to the side of the house. Holly Tree Cottage lies within a short walk of the Crown and the Golden Key public houses. The Plough and Sail lies on the south bank adjacent to the Snape Maltings concert hall complex.
