Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A deceptively spacious individual detached house which was built to the present owners' specification in 2007, Marigold Cottage is situated in a secret location in the picturesque and well served village of Westleton. The property lies within a short walk of the village green and local amenities and within easy reach of RSPB Minsmere, which has played host to the BBC's Spring Watch programme in recent years. Just down the road is the beach and what remains of the drowned city of Dunwich. There are fabulous walks through nearby heath and woodland and wonderful cycle routes through some of Suffolk's most beautiful and unspoilt countryside.

The house benefits from a large sitting room/dining room which has an impressive fireplace and wood burner. The sitting room opens to a large conservatory which in turn opens out to the private and sunny garden. The accommodation also features a large and well-appointed kitchen/breakfast room and a useful utility room. There are two ground floor bedrooms which are served by a large shower room. One of the bedrooms is presently used as an office. On the first floor there are two further double bedrooms plus a very large studio/work room which could also be used as a bedroom. The first floor is served by a family bathroom and a shower room which is en-suite to bedroom one. The master bedroom opens to a private and covered balcony which provides a sheltered view of the garden and stunning open countryside beyond. The property is double glazed with uPVC windows and is centrally heated by oil fired radiators. There is a solar panel for hot water. The double integral garage could also be converted and integrated into the accommodation and provides scope for work or annexe space (subject to planning consent).

We most strongly recommend an early inspection to fully appreciate the versatility and space offered within.

Westleton has excellent amenities which include two pubs/restaurants and post office stores. There is a garage and a second hand bookshop. The village is well known for its lovely village green. There is a railway station at the neighbouring village of Darsham. The market town of Saxmundham has a Waitrose and Tesco supermarket together with good local high street shops. The seaside towns of Aldeburgh and Southwold have unspoilt beaches and golf courses. There is sailing on the rivers Blyth, Alde/Ore and Deben. Other local attractions include Snape Maltings which is an internationally renowned music venue and home to the Aldeburgh Festival. There are ancient castles at Orford and Framlingham. There are good farm shops at the neighbouring villages of Darsham and Middleton.
