A home with an authentic appeal, that will no doubt make you feel instantly welcome. Having been entrusted to the current custodian for almost forty years, this charming cottage has evolved with the decades embracing modern additions to expand the footprint and layout. Historically a farmer’s cottage, the enchanting location sets the scene as the perfect backdrop to this exciting proposition for those aesthetically minded to find a house to make their home. Stepping beyond the quintessential cottagey door, the entire ground floor reception space is fairly open plan, with carefully added spaces bolted on to the original bones of the cottage allowing space to spread out within quite a versatile layout. Adding texture and character, the rustic fireplace complete with log burning stove presents a warming focal point to the sitting area and looks completely at home next to the historic beams above. The kitchen evokes real country charm through the knotted pine cabinetry and is loyal to the unpolished spirit of this home, yet with functionable aspects such as the utility area which wraps round to the side. It’s the cosy little nooks which really makes this home special, from the dining area opposite the galley style kitchen to the bay window recess which makes for a fabulous view over the sizeable gardens. Another alteration to the footprint on the ground floor was the conversion of the master bedroom suite, complete with en-suite wet room and more enviable views over the gardens it offers a private and secluded aspect from the other two bedrooms which both lead separately from the landing upstairs.

The property lies on the cusp of the surrounding country views yet still only a short journey into the neighbouring market town of Beccles, so it has a great mid-way location. One of only a handful of properties on the lane, the positioning is nothing short of tranquil with an abundance of local wildlife on your doorstep. The shingled driveway allows lots of space to park off-road just to the side of the cottage. The gardens have selective ‘zones’ to enjoy and a wide variety of outbuildings too, from the sunny south aspect yard to the rear where landscaped beds have been home to decades of home grown veg to another courtyard style garden which is great for summer bbqs. Leading across the driveway to the mature garden where you will find an endless range of trees and shrubs, a true gardeners delight complete with a large timber workshop.
