Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Newly fitted kitchen, sitting/dining room, cloakroom and ground floor bedroom with en-suite bathroom. First floor study/occasional bedroom. 

Location Workshop Cottage is set within a Conservation Area, just a short distance from the centre of the popular and desirable village of Grundisburgh. The village has an impressive church, a primary school, an excellent public house (The Dog) which has previously won many awards for its food, a village store and Post Office, and village playing fields which benefit from tennis courts.

Grundisburgh is ideally located for both the historic market town of Woodbridge, approximately 3 miles to the south-east, as well as the county town of Ipswich, some 6 miles to the south-west. Direct trains from Ipswich to London's Liverpool Street station take just over the hour. Woodbridge is best known locally for its picturesque riverside setting with marina and associated boat services. It is also highly regarded for its good choice of schooling in both state and private sectors, and offers a variety of shops, restaurants, a cinema and theatre, and recreational facilities. The Heritage Coast lies within 12 miles with popular centres such as Orford, Aldeburgh, Thorpeness, Walberswick and Southwold. 

Description As its name would suggest, the cottage was a former workshop and was more recently converted to a dwelling. It is of attractive redbrick construction under a tiled roof and has been stylishly renovated. Internally, there is a newly fitted kitchen, cloakroom and sitting/dining room with high ceiling and wood burning stove. Also on the ground floor is a bedroom and en-suite bathroom. Stairs from the sitting/dining room lead up to a store/study or occasional double bedroom. Outside, there is off-road parking for at least two vehicles, as well as a south-west facing patio, lawn and insulated summerhouse/workshop. The garden enjoys a pleasant feeling of privacy. Workshop Cottage is an ideal permanent home, second home or holiday let, being within walking distance of everything the village has to offer but also close to Woodbridge and with easy access to the coast.
