A period village cottage standing in 1 acre of gardens just 3 miles from Ipswich and benefiting from an income derived from PV panels.

Listed Grade II and presenting rendered double jettied elevations, Street Farm Cottage is of timber frame construction and believed to date from the early 16th Century. Extending to over 1,800 sq ft and arranged over two storeys, the property provides well-proportioned accommodation, comprising of a dining hall with traditional feature cast iron range, kitchen complete with Rangemaster stove and double butler sink, with the principal reception room of particular note featuring intricate carved beams, exposed timber frame and large wood burning stove. The remaining ground floor rooms offer a cloakroom, WC and a south facing sunroom with French doors onto a terrace.
To the first floor there are four bedrooms and a family bathroom. Due to the orientation and configuration of the property, it is worth noting that most rooms are double aspect and many have high ceilings, creating plenty of natural internal light, unusual for a timber framed building of this ilk.

Located on the edge of the village and bordering arable land, the property benefits from a high degree of privacy set behind established hedgerows interspersed with mature trees and offers a semi-rural outlook. The property is accessed from a gated driveway which leads to a detached double
garage with utility/workshop, separate log store and large first floor storage area with gable window. Photovoltaic panels are fitted to the south facing roof elevation and the installation benefits from the original tariff rate, hugely reducing the running costs of the entire property. From here, a pathway returns to the property winding through the large expanse of lawn and traditional orchard, leading to a more formal garden with structured beds and borders and arriving at the south facing terrace. In addition, there are vegetable beds, a large fruit cage and Alitex greenhouse.
In all the property extends to just under 1 acre.
