This charming detached early 16th century grade II listed cottage has recently been the subject of further improvement for the current owners and now results in a enchanting home displaying a wealth of original features complemented by attractive gardens, small range of outbuildings and a delightful, elevated, no through lane setting.

With some limited ceiling height in places, the accommodation currently in brief comprises: traditional stable door opening to the kitchen breakfast room, a charming room with exposed timber and plank ceiling, exposed timbers, brick floor, and Inglenook fireplace with Aga oven. The kitchen is fitted with a hand built range of units beneath wooden worktops and butler sink and has had new radiators installed. Doors lead to a utility room, also with new radiators and rear hall area, and to a bathroom with corner bath.

The sitting room is a cosy reception of great personality with large Inglenook fireplace and wood burning stove, pamment flooring, exposed timbers and windows overlooking gardens. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a snug/guest bedroom (accessed through the sitting room) which retains many original features.

On the first floor is a spacious "Suffolk landing" and two further double bedrooms ( with low head-height and doorways as common with some period cottages). The many attractive features include exposed oak plank flooring and exposed timbers.

The cottage is complemented by delightful gardens situated to the front, side and rear. There is a shingle driveway area providing vehicle parking next to garaging. To the rear of the cottage is a small detached barn and separate workshop. At the side of the cottage is a further space containing the oil fired boiler serving the central heating system.

The cottage enjoys a delightful setting in an elevated position set back from a no through lane on the outskirts of the village. Wattisfield is a small Suffolk village situated approximately 12 miles to the north east of Bury St Edmunds and within about 8 miles of Diss with its direct rail link to London.

When entering Wattisfield on the A143 towards Diss from the direction of Bury St Edmunds, turn right into Pottery Hill, where the cottage will be found further up the hill on the left.

Mains electricity, water and drainage. Oil fired central heating. Council tax band D.

Agent's Note
As common with many period cottages, the ceiling height (particularly on the first floor landing area) is restricted. Contact the Bury St Edmunds office before arranging viewing to check height.
