A pretty detached three bedroom cottage on the fringe of this well-served village. Clematis Cottage lies in a prominent position on the road to Sibton and benefits from a driveway and a sunny courtyard garden. The cottage has been well maintained and is attractively presented. The accommodation, which is extensively double glazed and centrally heated by gas-fired radiators, features a large open plan sitting room/dining room which opens to a kitchen/breakfast room that is fitted with Shaker style cabinets under hardwood work tops. The ground floor space extends at the rear to include a utility room/lobby and a useful office. This space could be adapted to create a ground floor bedroom and it may be possible to change the layout to incorporate a cloakroom or shower room. Attached to the end of the office is a useful outbuilding, formerly a blacksmith's workshop, which could also be converted or integrated into the main accommodation. Alternatively this could simply be developed as an outside office or studio. On the first floor, there are three well-proportioned bedrooms which are served by a well appointed shower room. The third bedroom (at the back) has a particularly fine view of open Suffolk countryside and is accessed via the second (middle bedroom). The accommodation has very good storage provision. The cottage has tremendous charm and character and has been a much loved full time residence. Previous owners have used the property as a holiday home. The manageability of the outside space would make this a particularly easy property for use as a part time residence. The garden, which is mostly hard standing, offers huge potential for soft landscaping. Equally for a buyer wishing to work from home or to run a small business, the present layout could be ideal. We strongly recommend an early appointment to view.

Clematis Cottage is situated for easy access to both the forest and heathland of the Heritage Coast and the charming rural towns and villages of inland Suffolk. Yoxford is convenient for the A12 and Darsham railway station. The pretty village has a general store, primary school, surgery, garage, antique shops and more. Yoxford boasts a hotel, a fine restaurant, a café and two pubs, and the area is known for its specialist food producers, farmers' markets and food festivals. Golf courses and sailing can be found nearby and at Southwold and Aldeburgh, and the nearby Snape Maltings complex is home to the internationally renowned Aldeburgh Music Festival. There are ancient castles to explore at Framlingham and Orford and many remarkable churches including Blythburgh's 'Cathedral of the Marshes'. The RSPB's flagship reserve of Minsmere is within easy reach, and there are other wonderful nature reserves at North Warren, Havergate Island and Shingle Street.
