A charming Heritage Cottage which has been significantly extended, sitting within the Broke Hall Estate, close to the Orwell Estuary.
The house comprises two sections; the original Lodge, believed to date back to the 1800s and a complimentary modern extension built in a sympathetic style in the 1980s. The original part of the Lodge is of yellow brick construction with red brick detail to the large windows, and a profusion of stucco fascia. There are numerous original features, of particular note, including a series of beautifully carved wooden sections - in the gable decoration and around the front porch; elaborate finials and imposing stacked chimneys.
Accommodation comprises a fully fitted Moben kitchen leading through to the dining room with French doors to the garden and a feature fireplace. The old hallway gives access to the snug, a cloak room and the original staircase. Upstairs in this part of the house are two double bedrooms, a single bedroom (currently used as an office/study) and a family bathroom.
On the ground floor connecting the two sections is the conservatory, which provides access to the garden and enjoys views thereof. Through then into the beautifully designed sitting room with doors to the garden. A log burner is set in a red brick fireplace surround. Views from this room, of the garden in all its aspects, are a delight at any stage of the day. There is access through French doors onto the terrace on the south side and into the loggia on the south east side which provides a wonderful seating/dining area with bbq offering ideal shade and entertaining space at all times of the year. A second staircase leads directly up from the sitting room to a landing (with loft access) and then to the master bedroom suite. This features a dressing room with floor to ceiling built-in mirrored wardrobes, an en-suite shower room, and a charming Juliet balcony with views from the French doors out to the woodland garden.
