Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Boot room, hallway, utility/cloakroom, sitting room, dining room, inner hallway/study, kitchen, further utility area, large gym and workroom (which have scope to be used as further living accommodation or as an annexe). Bedroom one with en-suite shower room, two further first floor double bedrooms and bathroom. Two attic rooms.  

Location The property is situated in a very pleasant rural location along a small lane, which is just over half a mile from the centre of Stradbroke by footpath, or approximately a mile by car. The village offers local shops and services including a Spar convenience store that caters for all day-to-day needs, a bakery, butchers, medical centre, village hall, children's play area, hairdressing salon, library/Post Office, Stradbroke Baptist Church, two public houses, Church of England VC Primary School and Stradbroke High School. The historical and imposing All Saints Church, with its 15th century tower, is located in the heart of the village and is visible for miles around. There is also a sports centre with a swimming pool, gym and tennis courts, as well as numerous clubs and societies, including a popular cricket club, tennis club, bowls club and football clubs.

The South Norfolk town of Diss, with Morrisons, Tesco and Aldi supermarkets, lies about 11 miles to the north-west of the property. From here are direct trains to Norwich and London's Liverpool Street station. Framlingham, with its medieval castle, is approximately 8 miles to the south, and the Heritage Coast, with the popular centres of Southwold, Walberswick and Dunwich, is about 19 miles to the east. The county town of Ipswich lies about 23 miles to the south, and Norwich is about 30 miles to the north. 

Description Tots Cottage is an attractive and spacious property, which has been greatly extended over the years. The original cottage is believed to date from 1834 and, in recent years, the vendors have added a substantial rear extension, which links the former garages. The garages, now used as a gym/workroom, are believed to have been built in the 1970s. The gym/workroom is ideal for its current use and for anyone needing space for a business. However, they offer huge potential to be used as further living accommodation such as bedrooms, further reception rooms or as an independent annexe. The cottage itself now extends to approximately 2,142 sq ft, plus the cart lodge. On the ground floor is a modern and light kitchen, along with a study area, sitting room, dining room, utility/cloakroom, further utility area, boot room, gym and workroom. On the first floor are three double bedrooms, an en-suite shower room, family bathroom and cloakroom. On the second floor is a further bedroom and an attic room.

Tots Cottage stands very well within its plot, which extends to an acre. There is ample parking, along with a triple bay cart lodge and store. The garden faces west and south and has a large patio area as well as a meadow.
