A detached three bedroom rural cottage which is situated in a secret location on the edge of Kelsale, surrounded by open Suffolk countryside and occupying a large plot thought to be approximately 2.2 acres (subject to survey and measurement). The cottage, is believed to date from around the turn of the last century, and benefits from three first floor bedrooms, two reception rooms, a conservatory/garden room, fitted kitchen and downstairs bathroom. The accommodation has double glazing and electric night storage heating. There are fireplaces in the sitting room and the dining room and the rooms all enjoy wonderful views over the mature garden. The grounds of the cottage are a wildlife haven, enveloped by farmland and woodland, they are bordered by established hedges and beautiful mature deciduous trees. There is a large natural pond on the west side of the property and extensive lawns which encircle the cottage and are interspersed with spring bulbs and fruit trees. There are very useful outbuildings including a substantial barn/workshop which measures 10.9m x 5.34m. This building could be adapted for multiple uses but would certainly provide excellent space for vehicles or could be converted to an enormous art studio. Access to this property is via a very long private, unmade farm track. The track is intersected by the railway branch line to Sizewell power station and there are manual crossing gates that must be negotiated by the occupiers of Red Cottage Farm and its neighbour, Cottage Farm. Red Cottage Farm is available with no onward chain.

We draw prospective buyer's attention to the plans presently under consideration for Sizewell C Power Station which may affect the volume of rail and which can be found by visiting:
