Full description

This charming semi detached cottage was built in the early 20th century and provides a surprising level of well presented accommodation. The property has been recently improved by the current owners and now results in a delightful home, complemented by wonderfully private and well stocked gardens whilst enjoying a desirable village setting.

The accommodation possesses a light and airy feel and currently in brief comprises: Entrance door to entrance hall with stairs to first floor and door to a family room with fireplace and window to front. A door leads to the spacious kitchen dining room, a substantial room separated into two distinct areas. The kitchen area has windows to front and rear and is extensively fitted with a range of modern wall and base units under worktops, complemented by built in appliances and a range oven. The sitting room is a lovely, light dual aspect room with French style doors opening to covered rear terrace allowing the potential for alfresco dining. This room offers characterful features including exposed red brick, timber and feature fireplace with inset wood burning stove and wooden effect flooring. An inner hall area and a ground floor bathroom with white suite completes the ground floor accommodation. A staircase leads from entrance hall to a first floor landing with window to rear, which accesses the three comfortable bedrooms.

Outside - The cottage is approached along a shingle driveway providing off road vehicle parking, and there are areas of garden to the front. The rear garden is a particular feature being very well stocked with an abundance of mature trees, shrubs and flowering plants, whilst offering the occupants an excellent degree of privacy. At the rear of the property is a brick built outbuilding, fully lined and fitted with lowered ceiling, light and power connected, ideally suited as a hobby room. The gardens extend to more than 100ft in length, and there is a further substantial workshop (front section measuring 2.9m x 6.6m and the rear section is 2.6m x 6.0m, so the overall length is 12.6m. The workshop could provide a variety of uses and has power and lighting connected and double doors at both ends. This impressive work room offers the potential to become a generous home office. Within the garden are a number of terraces providing pleasant seating areas. There is also a hot tub which is included in the sale.

Situation - The cottage enjoys a delightful setting within a very sought after village location. Drinkstone provides a excellent access to the A14 dual carriageway and is situated only six miles from the historic market town of Bury St Edmunds and its wonderful range of everyday facilities.

Directions - When entering Drinkstone from the direction of Beyton, turn right into Rattlesden Road, where the cottage will be found further on the left hand side.
