An enchanting 19th century brick cottage which lies at the very heart of the pretty and sought after Suffolk village of Blaxhall. The property which is at the end of a small row, lies within a very short walk of the excellent village pub and is ideally situated for access to Blaxhall Common, Tunstall Forest, Iken Cliff, Snape Maltings and Orford Castle. The accommodation has been sympathetically modernised and retains its Victorian character and charm. There is a well-proportioned sitting room, a cottage kitchen/dining room and a ground floor shower room. Upstairs there is a double master bedroom and a second bedroom which was formerly a landing/bedroom that has been partitioned for privacy. There is a lovely fireplace in the sitting room with a wood burner *. The cottage benefits from partial double glazing. The rear garden is a notable feature of the cottage. It is laid to lawn with established trees and has a useful secure shed (2.29m x 1.72) with electricity, plus a fabulous, purpose-built studio/summer house (Measuring 2.62m x 2.28) with west-facing bi-folding doors. As cottages of this nature become increasingly hard to find, we most strongly recommend an early appointment to view. * The wood burner has a crack and may need to be replaced.

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.
