Location As the name suggests, Common Edge is located close to the edge of Snape Common, on the outskirts of the popular and well regarded village of Snape. Snape is probably best known for its internationally renowned concert hall at Snape Maltings, where there are also a number of bespoke retail outlets. The village also benefits from three very well regarded public houses/restaurants, The Golden Key, The Crown and the Plough and Sail. In addition there is a primary school, shop and post office, two garages, a filling station and a village hall, which hosts many classes and activities. On the doorstep of the property is an extensive footpath network, providing excellent access to the surrounding heathland and Alde Estuary. The well regarded coastal resorts of Aldeburgh, Thorpeness are a short distance away as is the market town of Saxmundham, approximately three miles, where there are Waitrose and Tesco supermarkets, as well as branch line rail links to London Liverpool Street via Ipswich. 

Description The vendors acquired Common Edge in 2011 and almost immediately thereafter undertook an extensive programme of renovation and refurbishment, as well as substantially extending the property to the side. The extension also provided for the construction of the impressive kitchen/dining room, that is extremely spacious and with glazed bi-fold doors opening onto the garden, together with the master bedroom above, which benefits from an almost double height vaulted ceiling and south facing glazed gable.

Outside the gardens are extensive, with a large parking and turning area to the front of the property. The majority of the gardens are to the rear, and facing in a southerly direction benefit from the sun for the majority of the day. Here there is a patio immediately adjoining the rear of Common Edge, and accessed via the bi-fold doors from the kitchen/dining room. There is also a useful timber frame building, The Studio, which can provide ancillary accommodation to the main house. In all, the gardens and grounds extend to just over half an acre.
