Foxearth, Suffolk

Guide Price £625,000

Property Description

Full description

A unique 4 bedroom period house sitting in beautiful gardens, situated in this highly regarded village.

Situated within this highly regarded village, two miles south-west of Long Melford, Pipers Cottage is an attractive detached 16th-century cottage, built of traditional timber-frame construction with a thatched and pan-tiled roofline.

The property has been subject to considerable improvements in recent times by the present owners, who have cleverly fused the original fabric and charm of the building with contemporary nuances and modern living space. The property extends to around 1,910sq ft and benefits from modern bathrooms and a stylish kitchen, together with a modern central heating system throughout.

In brief, the ground-floor accommodation comprises entrance porch with storage cupboard and glazed inner door leading to the kitchen/breakfast room, which very much forms the heart of the house, with exposed timbers and studwork, Rayburn with brick surround, solid wood worktops, inset butler sink, larder cupboard and door leading to the dining room with staircase leading to the attic rooms and side hall/boot room with stable door to the gardens and doors to the bathroom and utility room; sitting room - a delightful double-aspect room which opens to a garden room with views of the surrounding gardens, which very much balances the property in many ways.

The inner hallway gives access to three bedrooms which are served by the principal bathroom, with a further refitted bathroom and utility room from the side hall.

On the first floor are two attic rooms which are interconnected and provide further potential den or bedroom space.

The property is approached from the road through a 5-bar timber gate leading to parking for a number of vehicles and double cart lodge 19'9" x 15' with adjoining workshop 12' 1" x 7'10".

There is a large decked seating area surrounding the property, with sunken play pool. The remainder of the garden is well maintained, largely lawned, with a variety of mature trees, shrubs and flower beds. The front of the property is enclosed by a neatly trimmed beech hedge, ensuring a good deal of privacy through all seasons.
