An enchanting semi detached 19th century cottage between Snape and Orford with wonderful access to the forests and cycle routes. Large garden and excellent parking with space for caravan etc. Two reception rooms plus superb open plan kitchen/dining/living room. Two double bedrooms, smart bathroom.
This enchanting semi detached cottage is believed to date from the 19th century. The property is quite deceptive and occupies a surprisingly large plot with a sunny rear garden that benefits from south sun, a side garden and a large driveway which has space to park cars, trailers etc. and benefits from electric car charging points. The garden, which is large enough to accommodate an extension to the cottage (subject to consent), is laid to lawn with a paved patio under a pergola which creates an ideal out door dining area. There is a timber summer house and space to erect a garden studio or workshop. The cottage, at its core, has evidence of timber framing with lovely exposed beams and studwork. The windows are double glazed and there is a Hunter Herald 8 wood burner in the sitting room which has a back boiler to serve the radiators (Hot water via pressurised cylinder with two immersion heaters). In addition, the owners have installed air conditioning units on both floors. The ground floor comprises an entrance porch; sitting room which opens to a separate dining room or second living room; a beautifully appointed new bathroom with a deep panel enclosed bath, separate shower cubicle with a rain shower head and a hand held attachment; a w.c. and vanity enclosed wash basin with storage beneath. The stairs lead up from the dining room to the landing. Both bedrooms are generous sized double rooms with good built in storage. Perhaps the most surprising feature of the cottage however, is the superb open plan kitchen/dining/ family room which provides a wonderful contemporary open plan living and entertaining space that opens directly to the patio and the garden. The kitchen is beautifully fitted with new cabinets, pan drawer units and matching eyelevel units together with a SMEG Victoria range cooker. There is excellent appliance space including room for a tall fridge/freezer.

The property is ideally located for access to wonderful walks in the forest and Captain's Wood. There are excellent lanes for cycling with quiet routes to Iken, Orford and Gedgrave, beyond which the ferry at Butley Creek provides a unique short cut to the Sandlings and the villages of Boyton, Hollesley and on to Shingle Street and Bawdsey ferry at the mouth of the River Deben.
