Teazle Cottage is a stunning individual detached house which is located on the edge of Kelsale within convenient reach of the Suffolk Heritage Coast and within a short drive of the excellent local amenities at Saxmundham. The property which was originally a modest 19th century redbrick cottage has been extended substantially with an L shaped, single storey contemporary home that has been arranged around a delightful central courtyard. The standard of finish and the originality of the design is quite outstanding and the versatile accommodation includes a fabulous open plan kitchen/dining and living room beneath a dramatic wide-spanned vaulted ceiling. This, like the corridor and master bedroom, opens into the courtyard. There are two large double bedrooms at ground floor level, each served by its own luxuriously appointed bathroom. The master bedroom has a deep walk in wardrobe/dressing room. There are two reception rooms at the front of the house, each of which boasts its own fire place. Above the sitting room there is a large third bedroom and an en-suite shower room. The gardens are a notable and spectacular feature of the property and have been designed in the tradition of a Geoff Hamilton ornamental kitchen cottage garden, planted with trees and flowers amid raised vegetable beds and beautifully landscaped pathways. There is a large studio, containing a shower room and a kitchenette, which would serve brilliantly as a home office. The garden workshop could also be adapted as a home office or a small art studio. Teazle Cottage has excellent off street parking and there is room for boat trailers etc. An internal inspection is highly recommended in order to appreciate the standard and versatility of the accommodation offered within.
