Sheridans are delighted to offer for sale this most attractive detached cottage which is Grade II Listed and built in the early 18th Century. The property is constructed of a heavy oak timber frame and rendering, with casement windows and three dormer windows to the front aspect; the central chimney stack is most impressive and the thatched roof finishes off the delightful appeal of the property. The cottage offers a wealth of character to include an abundance of exposed beams and stud work and the brick chimney breast adds to this charm. In more recent years the house has been sympathetically modernised and is offered to a high standard throughout; we highly recommend an internal inspection.
The accommodation comprises oak front door to entrance porch and hall which in turn leads to the fabulous sitting room with full height inglenook fireplace with multi fuel burner, duel aspect French doors and windows and open stud work through to the dining room/family room which again offers a feature fireplace (currently blocked off) with bressumer over. Also situated on the ground floor is the pretty and well planned bathroom, which is finished with a quality Victorian suite, the cast iron roll top bath with claw feet being the striking main attraction. The bespoke kitchen is of very high quality and although spacious still retains a comfortable and homely feeling. The kitchen units are built from reclaimed pine, with inset butlers sink and space for a number of appliances. The full height brick inglenook fireplace, again fitted with a multi fuel burner, is a magnificent focal point of the room. Oil fired boiler serving the central heating system and hot water. A stable door gives access to the attractive rear garden and stairs lead to the first floor master bedroom. This room again offers beautiful character with the benefit of extensive walk-in wardrobes and a beautifully appointed en-suite shower room. A second staircase at the northern end of the property leads to a landing off from which is the second double bedroom. A most useful attribute of the property is the annexe, with its own personal door, which comprises bedroom/studio room and benefiting from a well appointed shower room.
The property is approached via a graveled driveway leading to the property and to the good size single garage. A second driveway providing additional parking can be found to the south end of the property. The garden is a pure delight offering an abundance of plantings, flowering cherry tree and shrubs. Gated access leads to the rear garden with lawn area, flower beds, summer house, green house and the most glorious views across undulating countryside.
The property is approached by a quiet country lane leading to Alpheton Church and set in a beautiful position with a westerly facing rear garden backing onto open countryside. The village has a strong community spirit and is well located close to the A134 which leads to both Sudbury and Bury St Edmunds, these in turn give access onto other main road network routes. Both Towns offer excellent shopping and recreational facilities and good railway links. The well regarded and well served village of Long Melford is situated just two miles to the south of Alpheton.
From the A134 upon reaching the village of Alpheton and the Green take the turning to the Church where the property can be found on your right hand side marked with a Sheridans For Sale board.
