INTRODUCTION:
A superb period cottage offering lovely light, bright and a surprisingly spacious interior along with great views to the rear and current planning permission to extend. The cottage, which is not listed is located towards the northern side of Ipswich within the small village of Witnesham which has good access into Ipswich. The village also boasts open countryside right on your doorstep and there is a useful railway station at Westerfield, only 2 miles away which offers a rail service in London Liverpool street. For those that enjoy a round of golf, Fynn Valley golf club is only a mile away, and there are plenty of great local pubs which offer good local ales and food. The property offers lots of charm and character that you would probably expect from a property from this age and includes 2 double bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor of which the current owner has converted the third bedroom into a beautiful large bathroom with a newly fitted suite including a free standing roll top bath and a separate shower cubicle. The master bedroom has lovely views to the rear and the second bedroom is also a good double. Downstairs there is a lovely good sized reception/study area with an attractive fireplace and double ended wood burner, a cosy living room which shares the wood burner with the study, a formal dining room with doors out onto the patio and a lovely fitted kitchen and an additional downstairs bathroom. Outside, driveway to the side providing parking for several cars and a lawned south facing rear garden with an open plan aspect to the rear. ***In addition, the property currently benefits from having PLANNING PERMISSION for a proposed Two Storey Rear Extension which would provide 4 bedrooms and a cart lodge, the permission is combined with Alba House next door. The details can be found on East Suffolk local authority planning portal DC/17/5465/FUL***

GROUND FLOOR:
You walk straight into the property into a wonderful reception room which could easily be used as a study, it has a beautiful red brick fireplace with an inset multi fuel burner, stairs to the first floor with a good sized built in storage cupboard under and a door into the living room and kitchen. The living room is located to the front and has a genuine cosy feel made all the better from the lovely fireplace and inset wood burning stove, and twin windows which allow for plenty of natural light. The kitchen has a real cottage feel with the ceiling beam, latch doors and the oak style units, there is plenty of work surface space and built in appliances include the oven, hob, extractor and dishwasher. The dining room is accessed from the kitchen and is the perfect place for a more formal dining area where there are double doors which open out onto the rear garden and patio which make it ideal for entertaining. From the kitchen there is a rear lobby which has the airing cupboard, a door to the rear and a door into the downstairs bathroom. The bathroom is a white suite and is a great addition to the upstairs bathroom providing one on each floor. There is also a small rear porch which has access into the garden.
