THE OLD GUILDHALL COTTAGE The Old Guildhall Cottage is a gorgeous example of a Grade II Listed property in the sought after village location of Badwell Ash. The property offers four bedrooms including the annex, which is separate to the property, with the lounge/dinner being the main focal point of the property. The vaulted ceiling, feature fireplace with wood burning stove and period wood detailing create a warm, comfortable and spacious room in the heart of the property and enjoy dual aspects and light all day.

Badwell Ash is a well served semi rural village with a great sense of community at its core as well as useful amenities and easy access back to the east and west bound A14. 

SELLER'S INSIGHT I originally purchased the property because it had plenty of room to accommodate the family at the time. My favourite room is the large double aspect lounge which is light and bright all day. The village has plenty of advantages, there is a shop and a village hall where community events regularly take place. There are buses into near-by Bury St Edmunds and a railway station approximately 3 miles away and easy access to the east and west bound A14.
I have found little need to improve the property since moving here. However we did install the pond to the garden as a feature. I will miss the lovely character of the property, having plenty of space and
I will miss the garden, especially the wildlife pond.
 

STEP INSIDE Entered via the porch from the private patio you are greeted with a cloak/reception area before proceeding to the expansive lounge/dining room. This room is absolutely stunning with a vaulted ceiling, feature fireplace with wood burning stove, exposed beams, woodwork and oak framed double glazed windows. This room is split level with double doors out to the patio and gardens. Off this there is a generous snug room with again feature inglenook fireplace. This would make an ideal home office/study although the property does benefit from a modest study area to the rear accessed via the West Wing staircase. The kitchen is of modern standard with hard wood surfaces, tiled floors, Boston sink, built-in appliances and plenty of storage space and a useful utility room.

On the second floor the bedrooms are accessed via separate staircases from the main lounge. To the East Wing is the master with en-suite bathroom, built in cupboards and dual aspect windows. To the West Wing is the guest bedroom with dressing room and again the bedroom benefits from dual aspect windows.

ANNEX: The annex is entered from the private patio into an expansive reception room with separate w/c and kitchen breakfast room. On the second floor there is a single and a double bedroom accessed by the East Wing Staircase with shared shower room and w/c with plenty of eve storage and the benefit of Velux windows above.

This could make an idea holiday let or secondary accommodation as a separate annex. It has the added benefit of having its own boiler so as to have independent heating and hot water from the main property and space to park a vehicle parallel to the side of the cottage.
 

STEP OUTSIDE The grounds comprise a shared drive with allocated parking, with gorgeous private patio area and expansive gardens. The patio has a lovely water feature/fish pond as well as bench seating for private relaxation. The garden is mostly laid to lawn with a walled and hedged boarders. A feature pond sits centrally to the main garden and a gravel path down the side leads to an orchard area with large garden shed installed.  

LOCATION The property is located in the heart of the sought after village of Badwell Ash, an attractive mid-Suffolk village with local amenities including public house, fish and chip shop, general store/post office, infant and junior schools. The adjoining village of Walsham le Willows offers further amenities. More comprehensive facilities can be found in the nearby cathedral town of Bury St. Edmunds offering a full range of schooling, recreational and shopping facilities. The A14 dual carriageway is just 4 miles away and provides access to Stowmarket, the historic market town of Bury St Edmunds and Ipswich. Cambridge, East Coast Ports, The Midlands and London are accessible via the M11.
