Description Whitegate Cottage is an extended character circa 17th Century detached residence with an extensive modern extension to provide versatile family living accommodation.

The accommodation is mainly on the ground floor level with a bedroom and bathroom on the first floor to the older cottage part of the property. The ground floor accommodation (which has previously provided dual family living) comprises central main entrance opening to the hall, off which is the kitchen/breakfast room, formal dining room with open-plan access to the morning room looking out over the beautiful gardens, family bathroom, two bedrooms, utility room, living room and sitting room. The sitting room is a stunning room with plenty of character including a magnificent brick inglenook with preserved former bread oven and inset log burner.

The property further benefits from fine exposed timbers, two oil-fired boilers serving the central heating system, some lovely rural views and being situated along a private no-through road with ideal access to the A140, A14, neighbouring Coddenham Village and the nearby market town of Needham Market.

Outside, the property stands in mature well-tended grounds which extend to approximately half an acre (subject to survey). To the front is a pea shingle driveway providing parking and access to the detached garage. There is side access to the rear gardens which are mainly laid to lawn with flower and shrub borders, two patios, three sheds and an assortment of trees and shrubs. 

About the Area Coddenham Green is a small hamlet situated approximately ten miles north of Ipswich with easy access to the A140 and A14. The property enjoys a rural location largely surrounded by farmland over which there is a comprehensive network of footpaths. The neighbouring village of Coddenham is approximately three miles away and this is a particularly well-served village. A more extensive range of amenities can be found at the nearby towns of Needham Market approximately three and a half miles and Stowmarket approximately seven miles where there is a mainline rail station. 

Directions From Needham Market Beacon Hill roundabout take the A140 towards Norwich. Proceed up the hill and take the second turning on the right just before reaching the Highwayman Public House. Having crossed over the A140 into Buckshead Lane, as signposted towards Coddenham Green follow this no-through lane for approximately one mile where the cottage can be found on the right-hand side. 

Agents Note The vendor advises some minor subsidence caused by a Weeping Willow tree was dealt with in 2017. As part of the remedial works, the tree was felled. 

Vendor´s Statement Driving home to Whitegate Cottage can be a magical experience. During daylight hours pheasants and partridges strut along the lane and a kestrel hovers above. At night the local deer herd crosses my path whilst the resident barn owl, swooping low overhead, is illuminated in my car's headlights.

Coddenham Green is beautifully rural and yet only two miles from the A14 and the rest of civilisation. I love the peace and quiet of this tucked-away cottage which has been my home for more than twenty-six years. The accommodation is quirky and versatile, allowing my parents to share it with me for many happy years. Over this time we added central heating, a shower room, kitchen and morning room, and installed a modern waste treatment plant. More recently, I have re-ridged the thatched roof. I hope the next custodians of this hidden gem will love and enjoy, as much as I do, the gardens, the wildlife and the wonderful countryside.
