An established semi detached house with great potential for extension and enhancement (subject to the usual planning consents), situated in a residential close at the heart of the pretty Suffolk village of Blaxhall. The house which is a short walk from the popular village public house: The Ship, is also within close proximity of footpaths which provide access to Blaxhall Common and Tunstall Forest. The house occupies a generous sized plot. There is a mature, private rear garden and a garage and workshop. The accommodation, which would benefit from a programme of modernisation also offers great scope for extension and deserves an early internal inspection. There are two good sized reception rooms and a fitted kitchen plus a useful cloakroom/utility room. There are two double bedrooms and a first floor shower room/bathroom. The property is double glazed and heated by electric storage heaters.

This part of Suffolk is a haven for artists, writers and musicians. Blaxhall is a pretty rural village with a well documented social history which has been recorded in recent years by its own residents and published in an excellent book which features a number of photographs from the early 20th century including Corner Cottage. The village's rural history was celebrated by the writer and village resident George Ewart Evans who published a number of books in the 1960s and 1970s including: The Horse in the Furrow, The Farm and the Village and Ask the Fellows who cut the Hay. His interviews with local villagers in and around Blaxhall have provided us with an important historical record of life in rural Suffolk at the time of the Great War and during the last days of working horses on the land. This cottage is typical of the sort of property Evan's subjects lived in and the construction using materials often gleaned from the land is a reminder of just how hard rural life was for most people until the 1970s. Blaxhall has an excellent pub and is ideally located for access to Orford, Woodbridge, Aldeburgh and the neighbouring village of Snape. Snape Maltings is home to the Aldeburgh Festival. There are wonderful walks across Blaxhall Common and through Tunstall Forest with cycle routes through the village and on to Iken and Orford. The nearest railway station is just two villages away at Campsea Ashe where there is a connecting service to London, Cambridge and Norwich via Ipswich.
