3 Bedroom Cottage For Sale

Nestled in the idyllic rural countryside, this property enjoys a tranquil setting set back from a small country lane on the outskirts of the picturesque village of Wickham Skeith. The village boasts a delightful array of many period properties near the north Suffolk borders and is conveniently located just 9 miles south of the historic market town of Diss, offering a wide range of day-to-day amenities, as well as a mainline railway station providing regular/direct services to London Liverpool Street and Norwich. For more amenities, the bustling town of Bury St Edmunds is a short 23-mile drive west, while the market town of Stowmarket is just 9 miles south.  Mendlesham is a 10 minute drive away having a health centre, convenience store/post office, fish and chip shop and a public house.  There is also a primary school with special educational needs unit.

Believed to date back to the 1800s, this charming cottage has undergone significant extensions over the years. The property is beautifully presented throughout, tastefully enhanced and upgraded to a high specification, offering well-designed and practical living spaces while still retaining plenty of charm and character. The two larger bedrooms on the first floor are well-proportioned, with the primary bedroom boasting the luxury of en-suite facility, in addition to a nicely presented family bathroom. On the ground floor, there is an open-plan lounge/diner separated by an open studwork, creating two distinct living areas. The kitchen stands out, being in excellent condition and of a high specification. The westerly-facing conservatory complements the kitchen, providing delightful views and access to the westerly-facing rear gardens.

The rear gardens are generously sized, beautifully landscaped, and a standout feature. Thoughtfully designed and planted, they promise an abundance of vibrant colours throughout the summer. Attractive brick walling and steps lead to a paved patio area, perfect for alfresco dining, which opens onto a lawn area bordered by well-stocked flowerbeds. The garden is enclosed by concrete posts and panel fencing, leading to a well positioned timber summer house.  To the front the property has views over a paddock.
