4 Bedroom Cottage For Sale
Bridge House is located in the small village of Redlingfield, which benefits from a thriving social community with events held on the Doorstep Green, a leisure and recreation area created by and for the villagers. These events include a monthly coffee caravan and an annual village barbecue. There are also regular 'Pub on the Green' evenings where members of the village meet and are able to buy beverages and snacks. In recent years there have also been dog shows and village fetes. Of historic interest is St Andrews Church, which was mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, and the adjacent Benedictine Priory (privately owned).
The delightful market town of Eye is approximately 3 miles away and offers a good selection of day-to-day shopping facilities, a medical centre, public house and restaurants, schooling including Hartismere High School and St Peter and St Paul CE Primary School. It is well known for its motte and bailey castle and varied cultural activities throughout the year, which include theatre productions, classical music concerts and an annual art exhibition.
For commuters, the main railway station at Diss provides direct services to London's Liverpool Street station, Ipswich and Norwich. Located approximately 9 miles from the property, Diss also offers an eighteen hole golf course, tennis and squash clubs, an indoor swimming pool and gym, as well as Tesco, Morrisons and Aldi supermarkets.
Bridge House which dates back to the 1600's is a charming detached period cottage that was originally two separate cottages, the property was eventually converted into one with extensions being added at a later date to the side and front. The property has some rendered and colour washed elevations, wood cladding and a tiled roof. The current owners have lovingly updated the property during their ownership by refurbishing the kitchen and redecorating, enhancing and installing some great features. The main property is approximately just over 1400 square feet and has versatile accommodation, upon entering the property and stepping into the sitting room from the porch you will find to the right hand side an inner hallway which has stairs that rise to the first floor and an archway giving you access to a lounge, off this lounge you have the downstairs bedroom which has the benefit of an ensuite shower room, having the two reception rooms is a great set up for family life. Heading back into the sitting room you have access to the kitchen which is located to the rear of the house and has dual aspect windows which provide pleasant views over the garden and countryside, this space has been thoughtfully improved to be in keeping with the style and location of the home, it very much has a rustic country feel to it, from the tile floor to the solid wood worktops and the additional island unit with reclaimed solid wood work surface. From the kitchen you also have access to a pantry storage area, a downstairs bathroom and utility/boot room that provides access out to the side of the property and the garden. Upstairs you have two good size double bedrooms, one of which has a quirky entrance that requires a crouch to enter, this room is the perfect kids room and a 'no grown ups allowed' sign on the entrance to it would be very fitting.
One of the great additions the current owners have made is the conversion of a former barn into a one bedroom fully self-contained annexe, this has been finished within the last year or so and is modern and tasteful throughout. The lounge kitchen diner area is a large bright open space with oak flooring and French doors which lead out to its very own garden. The kitchen comes with integral appliances such as a fridge freezer, washing machine, eye level oven and gas hob. In the lounge area there is a log burner which is less than a year old and again compliments the countryside location of this home. From the lounge area you also have access to the shower room and the double bedroom that has fitted wardrobes.
Bridge House sits recessed from the road down its own driveway in a plot extending to approximately 0.5 acres, with stunning views across farmland to the side and rear. There is substantial off road parking and a triple garage which provides plenty of storage. The rear garden is South Easterly facing and has unobstructed farmland views which the current owners like to enjoy as much as possible, they have installed an outside kitchen and created a wonderful outdoor seating area for alfresco dining. Currently there is also a hot tub which may remain.
