Full description

INFORMATION Originating from the C15th, this delightful timber framed cottage with rendered elevations under a red tiled hipped roof enjoys many original features, and was extended to the rear in the early 1970’s to create a comfortable family home that has been enjoyed by the current vendors for many years. St Mary’s Cottage has been tastefully updated throughout including an Orwell fitted kitchen as well as a refitted family bathroom with shower. Original features have been retained, supplemented by sympathetically chosen replacements such as light fittings and switches, pine and oak doors etc. Heating is via a gas fired boiler with radiators throughout. Outside, the property enjoys lawned gardens, an attached garage, carport and parking, brick store together with 3 garden sheds. The property is conveniently situated approximately half a mile from the village shops and facilities.  There are numerous nearby walks in the surrounding countryside.



PLANNING – Babergh Ref 14/01488 Detailed planning consent has been obtained by the owners for the erection of a detached 1½ storey 1,400 sq ft residence in the garden to the side of the property which could be of particular interest for those seeking to accommodate an extended family situation. Under these circumstances the position of the new build could allow a future subdivision of the existing gardens to provide a plot for the bungalow of approx. 45’ wide x 113’ overall depth (sts) while retaining approx. 0.2 acre overall for the benefit of St Mary’s Cottage.

Approved plans and a copy of the Decision Notice can be seen online at the Babergh Planning Portal.
