Full description

This superb detached 16th century cottage has recently been refurbished and sympathetically extended for the current owner and now results in a charming home of considerable personality, enjoying a prominent setting within the centre of a well-served and popular Suffolk village. Listed Grade II as being of specific architectural and historical interest, this delightful home retains a wealth of features including large inglenook fireplace, exposed timbers, cottage internal doors and leaded light windows.

The recent works carried out include a superb new rear extension with brick and flint panels and underfloor heating, stylish new wet room, kitchen re-fitted in part, new gas fired boiler, re-wiring, new carpets, water softener, redecoration and landscaping and redesign of the rear garden.

The accommodation currently in brief comprises: traditional entrance door opening to an entrance porch with door to an inner hall/family area retaining a polished brick floor, staircase off to first floor, exposed timbers and window to front. The kitchen has been updated and fitted with a range of units beneath wooden preparation surfaces and complemented by a new built in AEG oven and hob. Window overlooking rear gardens, roof light window, exposed beams and brickwork, wooden effect flooring and door to a stylish newly fitted wet room. The sitting room is a particularly comfortable reception retaining a huge inglenook fireplace, new carpet, window to front and side and door returning to entrance porch. A superb new rear addition to the cottage is a newly constructed dining room, built to a traditional style incorporating brick and flint work beneath a tiled roof whilst displaying a stylish tiled floor with underfloor heating, vaulted ceiling, doors and windows to gardens and oak door opening to a ground floor cloakroom which completes the ground floor accommodation.

First Floor Accommodation - On the first floor are two comfortable bedrooms (one with large walk in wardrobe) and both retaining many exposed timbers and windows to front with church views.

Outside - The newly landscaped rear garden is a particular feature of the cottage, providing the occupants with an excellent degree of privacy and seclusion. The gardens are mostly paved with slate paving, with areas for planting whilst enclosed by an attractive brick and flint wall. A pair of timber gates give side access and a rendered and pan-tiled shed creates a useful storage space. Adjoining the rear of the new dining room is a further slate paved terrace area ideal for outdoor entertaining with steps up to the main area of garden.

Situation - The cottage is situated in the centre of the village located in the attractive High Street, with its fine range of varying architectural styles and historic period buildings spanning the last five centuries. Pleasant views are afforded to the front towards the magnificent village church. Ixworth offers an excellent range of amenities including a primary school, shops, surgery, restaurant, cafe and tea rooms all close to hand. Ixworth is well positioned for access to the A143 to Diss and the A14 dual carriageway, linking Stowmarket with its main line link to London.
