Full description

This delightful detached cottage is of brick and flint construction under a part pan tiled roof with several extensions during its lifetime having increased the ground floor accommodation.  The original entrance to the front of the property has long since been sealed but could be reinstated and therefore create a traditional floor layout and natural flow, however entry to the rear does bring you into a generous garden room with bi-fold doors opening to the garden and access into the utility room, which, with some investment could become a lovely open plan kitchen/dining room with views of the grounds.  The ground floor also has a lounge, sitting room arched through to the dining area and a fitted kitchen, together with a cloakroom and boiler room.


On the first floor there is evidence of some changes to the internal walls, with the master bedroom previously being two bedrooms and again, with some minor work could be returned to the original layout.  In addition there is a second double bedroom with fitted wardrobes, a family bathroom and a large landing which is currently being used as a study area.


The gardens to the rear of the property are predominantly laid to lawn with mature trees and shrubs creating a lush green backdrop and a stepped patio adjacent to the garden room allowing life to spill out from the cottage.  Looking up the garden to the property, the canopy of trees frame the cottage beautifully and the tower of the 14th Century church stands proud through the break of the pine trees.  To the side of the property is a single garage with a 'photography dark room'. There is a good sized garden tool shed together with a large workshop being originally part of the village forge and an observatory which was constructed by the original owner and with some modernisation could be restored for star gazing. 


The village of Icklingham is located between the towns of Mildenhall and Bury St Edmunds and is unusual in the fact that the village has two churches, one of which is thatched and no longer used by the parish, however it is one if the finest examples of an unspoilt Suffolk church.  The historic town of Bury St Edmunds has facilities for all everyday needs to include a twice weekly market, various supermarkets, a well served town centre with 'The Arc' precinct, sports centre and schools for all ages.
