4 bedroom house – Battlesea Green, Stradbroke, Eye, SuffolkOffers In Excess Of £550,000
Property DetailsLocation This cottage is in a lovely position hidden from view in just a small cluster of houses around a mile to the north of the village. Stradbroke is highly regarded and has a good range of amenities together with schooling up to secondary level and leisure centre. For a wider range of services, the market town of Diss is only 10 miles away and has a mainline rail station on the Norwich to London Liverpool Street line with a journey to London of 90 minutes - ideal for the commuter. The Heritage coast around Southwold, Aldeburgh and Walberswick is within 45 minutes drive and the Broads a similar distance to the north. This is a great area for families.
The Property The cottage probably dates from the 18th century and displays various elements of the original timber frame and open fireplaces. It has been used as a holiday home for a good many years and whilst it has been maintained over this time, it is fair to say that it is a little dated in a terms of the fixtures and fittings, and now presents a fantastic opportunity for updating, extending and perhaps re-modelling to create a wonderful family home.
Outside One of the beauties of this property is its grounds which extend to over two acres and includes an asphalt tennis court. The access has been recently created and sweeps through the timber gates, onto a tree lined shingled driveway which gives glimpses of the cottage. There are areas of formal garden with well stocked flower beds, numerous trees, pond, an orchard and an area of open grassland which, if fenced, could be the pony paddock.
There are two summer houses and whilst there are no large outbuildings, there is plenty of room for them to be built.
Services Mains water and electricity are connected to the property. Private drainage. Oil fired boiler providing heating to radiators and domestic hot water.
Directions From Diss heading towards Stradbroke on the B1118. Go though Hoxne and continue past the various turns for Wingfield and Syleham. Just after the turn to Battlesea Green (on your right) turn right into the driveway on the right to Quince Cottage.
