IVY COTTAGE Charming and quaint Victorian double fronted house beautifully presented with contemporary extension. Deceptively large with a good size private garden and off-road parking for up to 6 cars.
Ivy Cottage is a charming red brick, pantile roof, double fronted village house in the very heart of this popular Suffolk village. Substantially enlarged from its earliest incarnation, circa 1881 the property for many years was the village shop serving the local community until 1967 when it was returned to residential use. The cottage benefits from a substantial two storey extension with a single storey side extension where the contemporary open plan living arrangements work in harmony with the original layout of the cottage. On the ground floor this versatile space is light and bright and just ideal as a family room, dining room, workspace and much more. The windows throughout are modern uPVC. The Lounge and utility/cloakroom lead off the inner hall with parquet flooring and stairs that lead to the first floor. The lounge is situated at the front of the house with dual aspect. The room benefits from a wood burner stove and attractive tiled hearth. Fitted cupboards with seating is built in to the far-end wall. Upstairs there are two double bedrooms a family bathroom and the luxurious principal bedroom with ensuite. Outside, this reassuringly conventional layout with a fully enclosed and private lovely garden to the rear and the smart paved parking to the front with picket fencing and gates makes a pretty picture indeed.

SELLER'S INSIGHT "We wanted our first home to be practical with great living space. Ivy Cottage with its perfect blend of character with a modern twist was the perfect discovery. We will miss the house greatly and would stay if it wasn't for work commitments. Our favourite room has to be the kitchen/dining/living room which is a wonderful space to enjoy family time particularly on warmer days with the bi-fold doors open seamlessly joining the house to the outdoors. The garden is sunny and bright and has been re-landscaped along with the drive that has also had a face lift. The location is great with a village shop, pub, play areas and school close by. There is a great sense of community spirit and our neighbours are wonderful. Ivy Cottage used to be the village shop and we have lots of signage and documents from those days."
