Bridge Cottage is of traditional timber framed construction and is appropriately listed as a Grade II building of special architectural or historic interest. It is understood the property may date in part from the late 16th and early 17th Century although additions have been made at later times. Bridge Cottage is set back from a quiet country lane approached by a gravelled drive laid around a copper beech. There is ample space to park on the drive and a lean-to Car Port is set to one side of the house. The main area of the garden is to the rear. There is a substantial paved area with a raised section to one side suitable for a hot tub and with an above ground circular swimming pool and timber clad Workshop/Garden Store to one side. A conifer hedge screens a further area which is largely grassed and could be available by separate negotiation. The accommodation has a great deal of character with ample evidence internally of the timber frame. The Sitting Room and Dining Room each have an inglenook style fireplace and in addition to these two rooms there is a spacious Reception Hall, a Garden Room, a small Study, a Kitchen with bespoke units by a local cabinet maker as well as a Utility Room, Bedroom and Bathroom. The first floor which can be accessed by two staircases has three Bedrooms, a Bathroom and a Landing which has been used in previous times as an additional Bedroom or as a study area. The nearest main town is Woodbridge which offers extensive facilities for a town of is size including an array of independent boutiques and shops trading alongside the national names. There are a variety of restaurants, two hotels, schools for students of all ages in both the state and independent sectors, a cinema, swimming pool and a railway station from where services run through to Ipswich, Suffolk's county town. From Ipswich there are numerous connections to London's Liverpool Street station. The coast at Aldeburgh, Thorpeness and further north at Southwold is within comfortable travelling distance and there are good opportunities to play sport in the surrounding Suffolk countryside. Sailing can be enjoyed on the tidal rivers, Deben, Alde and Orwell as well as at sea and there are many attractive walks and rides in the district.
