Coun­try liv­ing in a thriv­ing vil­lage

A re­fur­bished pe­riod cot­tage in the heart of Suf­folk with plenty of po­ten­tial

EADT Suffolk - - PROPERTY -

Lime Tree Cot­tage at Strad­broke is an at­trac­tive four-bed­room pe­riod cot­tage that has un­der­gone ren­o­va­tion and re­fur­bish­ment in re­cent years.

The prop­erty re­tains much of its pe­riod charm, in­clud­ing an im­pres­sive fire­place and beau­ti­ful ex­posed tim­bers. An im­pres­sive en­trance hall has also re­cently been added, an im­pres­sive area with win­dows pro­vid­ing good views of the drive­way, gar­dens and agri­cul­tural land beyond.

The sit­ting room forms part of the orig­i­nal core of Lime Tree Cot­tage. The fo­cal point of the room is the ex­posed brick fire­place con­tain­ing a wood burn­ing stove.

There is a din­ing room with ex­posed ceil­ing tim­bers, a snug, util­ity/cloak­room, and a re­fur­bished kitchen/break­fast room fit­ted with con­tem­po­rary style kitchen.

The mas­ter bed­room has a re­cently re­fur­bished en suite shower room and there are three other bed­rooms, plus a re­fur­bished main bath­room.

Lime Tree Cot­tage is set well back off the road with views of sur­round­ing farm­land in grounds of nearly 0.6 acres. The gar­dens are pre­dom­i­nantly laid to grass, with ma­tur­ing trees, in­clud­ing ap­ple, pear, horse chest­nut and cherry, and ma­ture spec­i­men trees, in­clud­ing im­pres­sive fig and ap­ple trees, to­gether with oak, po­plar, wil­low and ash.

There is also a study/of­fice, with a win­dow over­look­ing the drive and gar­den, which is ac­cessed ex­ter­nally, al­though it would be pos­si­ble to cre­ate an in­ter­nal con­nect­ing door into the hall­way.
