Exceptional house with panoramic river views & private jetty
Jumbos Cottage is a very rare and exceptional property that has been expertly designed to take advantage of its beautiful far reaching views over the river. The original house built in the late 1800's has been entirely renovated and extensively extended with great flair to create a remarkable and very special contemporary home maximising the wonderful position. The blend of traditional and contemporary architecture works exceptionally well creating a house that sits within the landscape yet the design enables the various views over the river to be seen and enjoyed from most of the rooms. The original cottage now provides four bedrooms and 3 bath/shower rooms, all finished to an exceptional standard throughout. The kitchen/dining rooms sits in the centre of the property with a fully glazed elevation with bespoke sliding doors that open out to raised terrace maximising the fabulous views. A glazed walkway leads to a contemporary drawing room, again with full glazed sliding doors overlooking the river meandering towards Snape Maltings. The gardens have been landscaped with great care and attention and now provide something very special. There are raised beds enclosed with mellow curving red brick walls beautifully planted and well stocked with herbaceous plants, lawns enclosed by estate fencing and a raised terrace accessed via steps constructed from sleepers to an elevated seating area that looks across the rooftop of the house, the whole river and countryside beyond.
Planning permission has been granted for conversion of the original round house to an annexe to the main house. The house further benefits from a private Jetty that has been newly constructed from the house into the River Alde so boats, kayaks, paddleboards etc can easily be launched directly from the house.

Having specialised in coastal property for 20 years, this is the finest river view I have seen from any property in Suffolk. The photographs do not do justice to the view, it really is exceptional and the design and finish of the property absolutely maximises the exceptional position. In addition the property has a private jetty providing access to the river, something that is remarkably rare.Peter Ogilvie
