A deceptively spacious three bedroom semi-detached 19th century cottage which is situated in a secluded location overlooking woodland and with views towards open Suffolk countryside. The cottage, which benefits from delightful south facing cottage garden, benefits from good off street parking and is approached via a short un-adopted lane. The well-planned accommodation has been sympathetically extended within the last thirty years and offers tremendous versatility. There is a large sitting room, which has an impressive fireplace and wood burner and a second living room: a snug/study which opens out to an elegant and recently added conservatory. The well-proportioned, separate, dining room could be used alternatively as guest bedroom. There is a useful downstairs cloakroom and a utility room with a back door to the garden. The kitchen has been updated recently with good quality cabinets, granite worksurfaces and an integrated oven and hob, dishwasher and fridge/freezer. The accommodation on the first floor is also well planned and comprises three good sized bedrooms (two doubles and a single) which are served by a well appointed family bathroom that includes a bath and a shower cubicle. The cottage is beautifully presented throughout and benefits from double glazing and electric heating. The sunny garden, which is a notable feature of Coppice Cottage, is laid to lawn with pretty herbaceous borders, young fruit trees and cultivated vegetable beds. The garden has a very pretty Victorian style greenhouse and a new timber garden shed. A delightful water feature provides a focal point from both the garden sun terrace and the conservatory. Coppice Cottage lies within a short walk from the popular Chequer's village pub and is ideally located for access to Snape, Aldeburgh and Suffolk Heritage Coast.

Friston has a large village green, an active village hall and a pub "The Chequers". The village lies conveniently between Aldeburgh and the market town of Saxmundham with easy access to the neighbouring village of Snape, famous for its world class Maltings Concert Hall, home to the Aldeburgh Festival. Saxmundham, which has a Wednesday market and Waitrose and Tesco supermarkets, also benefits from a good range of shops. Its railway station provides connecting services to London. The seaside town of Aldeburgh has an excellent range of local shops with art galleries and fine restaurants. There are golf courses at Aldeburgh, Thorpeness and Halesworth with sailing on the rivers Deben and Alde/Ore. Nature reserves in the area include RSPB Minsmere, Havergate Island, Snape Warren and North Warren. The village sits on the edge of the popular Sandlings Walk which ls a walk through the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty from Southwold to Ipswich.
