Charming Grade II listed detached thatched cottage.
Bridge Cottage is an enchanting Grade II listed property, believed to be principally 18th century with an earlier, Tudor core. The cottage is wonderfully pretty: wattle and daub with a predominantly Norfolk reed thatch, with pan tile and slate roofs to the Victorian extensions.
Internally, Bridge Cottage is light filled and harmoniously fuses period charm with contemporary design and practicalities. Off the delightful reception hall, with exposed beams and herringbone brickwork, is a modern shower room with high-pressure water. A spiral staircase leads to the first floor, with three double bedrooms, all enjoying double aspects. A further door in the reception hall leads to the sitting room
The sitting room is an especially charming room, a wood burning stove with a bressummer and brick surround occupies the rear of the room, an original Tudor window lets in borrowed light from the scullery, while a casement windows looks out over the front garden and mature apple tree.
The kitchen/breakfast room partially encases the Tudor heart of the cottage. It is a light filled and spacious room with a four oven electric AGA; the scullery to the side of the kitchen provides further work surfaces, a butler sink and space for a dishwasher. French windows lead on to the south facing terrace and gardens; a stable door provides access to the west facing courtyard.
Off the breakfast/kitchen room is a double aspect and partially panelled reception room, which our clients presently use as a study. It enjoys wonderful views over the garden.
Bridge Cottage has a spacious double garage with studio above; central heating and hot and cold water pipes have been installed and, subject to necessary consents, it could make a wonderful home office or annexe.
The gardens are beautiful, with mature trees, pond and a vegetable garden to the rear. There is ample parking to the front of the property behind a five bar gate.
