Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A semi-detached four bedroom 19th century farm cottage which was extended during the latter part of the 20th century. The cottage and its neighbour lie in an enviable rural location surrounded by beautiful arable farmland with far reaching views across the open Suffolk countryside. The garden is of a manageable size and abuts the neighbouring fields. There is a detached, recently reconstructed, garage and good parking space. The accommodation is surprisingly spacious and includes two generous sized reception rooms - one of which has an open fireplace. Three of the four bedrooms will accommodate a double bed with ease and the fourth bedroom is a very good sized single room. The family bathroom is located on the first floor. The accommodation benefits from oil-fired central heating and is double glazed. The property which retains much of its period charm and character would now benefit from a programme of careful modernisation. As houses of this type and in this sort of unspoilt rural location become increasingly difficult to acquire, we the sellers' agents most strongly recommend an early appointment to view.

Silverlace Green is a beautiful rural hamlet conveniently located for access to the Suffolk Heritage Coast and the seaside towns of Aldeburgh and Southwold. The nearest market town is at Saxmundham, about three miles away, where there are Waitrose and Tesco supermarkets and a railway station with connecting services to London's Liverpool Street station. There is an excellent farm shop at nearby Friday Street and the Walled Garden Nursery who specialise in perennials. The world famous Snape Maltings concert hall lies within a short drive and is home to the internationally renowned Aldeburgh Festival. There are nature reserves at Minsmere and Havergate Island, woodland walks at Tunstall Forest and Blaxhall Common, estuary paths at Iken and Snape with sailing on the Deben and Alde. Ancient castles to explore can be found at the nearby market town of Framlingham and the riverside village of Orford. Benhall has a primary school and village hall and an active social club.
